Getting engaged can be one of the happiest times in your life. It can also be stressful once you realize you have a lot of decisions to make in order to bring your big day to life. At Goodwin Manor in Little Rock, Arkansas, we believe your engagement should be the happiest time of your life. No one should feel stressed about their wedding and we hope to be a venue that helps our couples stay calm and stress-free. In our latest blog series about wedding decisions, we’re going through choices brides- and/or grooms-to-be can expect to make leading up to the wedding day and where to start when it comes to making decisions. We recommended starting with selecting your wedding style. Now, let's move on to choosing a wedding season!
In order to select a wedding season, the real question to ask yourself first is: “Where will we get married?” The seasons vary widely from place to place. If you know the city you'll say “I Do” in, that will help you decide on a season that's best in that place. A plus of having your wedding in or near the city in which you live is that you know what each season is like there. But if you're considering a destination wedding in another state or country, do your research on the typical weather and climate in that area before booking a venue.
Some brides were born knowing the season in which they wanted to get married. Some just knew they were a spring bride or knew they dreamed of a fall wedding. If you're like these brides and you just know, go with your gut. Don't second guess something that came to you so easily. A lot of wedding decisions won't be that easy so take advantage of it. It’s great to have a decision you don’t have to mull over. If you have a favorite time of year or want the chance of snow on your wedding day, go with it! Just know that Mother Nature is unpredictable, no matter the season.
If you weren't born with a must-have wedding season, ask yourself some questions to help determine the best wedding season for you:
Overall, when you’re choosing a wedding season, keep this one rule in mind: Do what you want. Don’t force yourself to have your wedding in a season that doesn’t fit your vision or personality just because it’s cheaper. Weigh your options and how much you care about the season, and go from there. Goodwin Manor in Little Rock is a beautiful, elegant wedding venue that looks beautiful in every Arkansas season.
