    We chose the Saturday after Easter, DH mother was a teacher and we were getting married in my home town. She wanted to be as involved as possible (which was a blessing as my mother was not your typical mother of the bride). IT was not perfect for DH work, but we were able to go on our honeymoon out of peak season, and still have awesome weather. We celebrated Thirteen years over Easter! And guess what, it was my inlaws that took us to lunch.

    We picked the soonest weekend available that also coincided with us having my step kids.

    Default The story behind your wedding date

    My DH got the full say on our wedding 'month' as he didn't want to wear a suit and melt in our hotter months. My heart was set on Sept (which is lovely here) but Sept is so popular and books out fast, and in the end we had an Autumn wedding date and by all accounts it was a beautiful, sunny warm day.

    Our honeymoon was overseas and it was fantastic weather there too, so all in all we were happy.

    We wanted the date that we started dating, so we waited until a year that it was on a weekend. Ended up being a Sunday, but worked perfectly. We got married 13 years to the day from when we started dating. (No doubt some people would consider that unlucky!)

    We picked the long weekend at the end of September/start October.

    Reasons for doing so -

    - we wanted the weather to be nice but not stinking hot (we live in WA) we got rain in the morning, but hot and sunny in time for the wedding.

    - we had a lot of family and guests coming from interstate - so choosing a long weekend meant if unable to stay for a decent visit, they could at least come for a couple of days. As we got married on the Sunday, it also meant people didnt have to get up early and rush off to work the day after.

    - It was during school holidays - an important consideration so my step-daughters could attend from interstate

    Both sets of parents were married the same day, only a year apart, so we stole their date as well.

    We got married in the new year so that both sets of parents could be there from overseas- inlaws were over for Christmas so we got married the last week of their stay & the 2nd week of my parents stay so there wasn't too much of an overlap of too many people staying with us.
