In periods gone by it was not uncommon for young partners to consult the Tarot as to what month of the year depending on the stars would be their best time to wed, this could depend on what time of year their sun or even moon sign was inline with Venus the goddess of love, that i would take as a positive sign, and so forth. In my opinion I would like to think that the longevity of a marriage depends on the love of you as well as your partner and not on the date you get married.
Nowadays the factors which make us decide differ a little. Each time of year brings its own style and flavor to a wedding. The time of year you choose to get married will indeed impact the style and also economics of the wedding in lots of ways including location of the reception, honeymoon destinations, wedding theme and also price. What ever type of wedding you desire you will encounter a season to match you.
An autumn wedding brings to mind golden and copper themes through the fabrics and the flowers. Flowers this season are earthy yet rich. Take bold colors in purples russets, yellow and reds. Add a natural twist with dark leafy foliage and wood containers. If you choose flowers that are in season this will bring down the cost a little.
Seasonal fruits that you can include on the menu are Apples and Pears; these are in season all year round. All these factors combined will bring a nice autumn breeze to the day. Bear in mind that August is quite popular for weddings, if you are having the reception in a hotel book well in advance. The weather is also superb if you are thinking of honeymooning in Europe. Stay clear of south East Asia though as these are experiencing their monsoon seasons.
Winter months wonderland wedding, a very passionate setting of Burning log fires, mulled wine receptions and Christmas card settings. This could defiantly be an inside wedding, maybe in a castle or Hotel adorned with rich reds and also golden glowing candles.
A December wedding may be beneficial as the wedding reception price is dropped in many hotels in the first few days after Christmas. The vacation spirit that is still lingering at this time will add to the atmosphere. Snowdrops, Tulips, Amaryllis, and White geisha include a few of the winter blooms. Seasonal fruits to be enjoyed include winterberries, Apricots, Cherries and dates.
A New Years Eve wedding can be quite a good idea, ringing in the New Year with a festive and fun day out for all involved. Honeymoon destinations for your winter months vary, you are able to opt for a skiing holiday with a romantic log cabin accommodation or maybe head for the sun kissed beached of Thailand. Keeping in mind flights are usually scarce and also pricey around Christmas so book your honeymoon well in advance.
Spring / Summer sun will give you for beautiful garden weddings adorned with all of mother natures glory, a fabulous season for a wedding. The colors and flowers to choose from are in abundance from roses to the petals of the cherry blossom, the style of this season is relaxed and taking bold flowers and strong colors conditioning them with driftwood or delicate wisps of grass and raffia. A few of the fruits in season are Peaches, passion fruit, as well as Citrus fruits, and Quinces.
Freshly picked chocolate dropped strawberries would go down well with a champagne reception. A marquee might be a wonderful idea for this season allowing everybody to soak up the atmosphere, remember to include catering and furniture hire as part of the costs in case you are watching the budget. The world will be your oyster as far as honeymoons go but remember our summer is winter in many of the southern hemisphere including Australia.
Whatever your plans do not stress yourself and take as much help from family and friends to make the big day one to remember for all. Booking your honeymoon online which includes accommodation and avoiding travel agents can help you time and money.
