Set the Date:When should you get married?

Congratulations!

If you’re reading this it’s probably because you’ve recently gotten engaged and now the next decision, what day is best to get Married. There are a lot of things to consider when choosing your day.  Is there a time of year your family gets together regularly, are there dates or seasons your family will be unusually busy?  Is there a date special to you and your fiance, perhaps the first date, engagement date, a special holiday.  And then for the superstitious types here’s a couple rhymes concerning what month and what day to get married:

Month to get married:

Married when the year is new, he’ll be loving, kind & true,
When February birds do mate, You wed nor dread your fate.
If you wed when March winds blow, joy and sorrow both you’ll know.
Marry in April when you can, Joy for Maiden & for Man.
Marry in the month of May, and you’ll surely rue the day.
Marry when June roses grow, over land and sea you’ll go.
Those who in July do wed, must labor for their daily bred.
Whoever wed in August be, many a change is sure to see
Marry in September’s shrine, your living will be rich and fine.
If in October you do marry, love will come but riches tarry.
If you wed in bleak November, only joys will come, remember.
When December snows fall fast, marry and true love will last.

Days to get married:

Monday is for health,
Tuesday for wealth,
Wednesday best of all.
Thursday brings crosses,
Friday brings losses;
but Saturday, no luck at all.

Ultimately if your families lead busy lives or are involved in various organizations you may not be able to plan around everyone’s schedule, think of who’s most important to you (don’t forget yourselves in this part) and all the others will either find time or understand.

Coming soon: We’ll discuss something borrowed, something new…
