The ultimate decision, when to keep your wedding? This is a major contemplation for most couples. You try to make it suit your convenience but sometimes you are impeded by the availability of your most important guests. You also try to think about the best time of the year, and your favourite. If you live in places that are impacted by rainy season and hurricanes then you will also adjust your wedding date to avoid these, as best as humanly possible. Do not be pressured as you get engaged. Take your time to think about what you want and what will be feasible for the people involved. The pressure involved in setting a wedding date, often makes some couples elope.

Do not keep your wedding in the winter if you absolutely hate the cold. If you sweat a lot, do not keep it in the hot summer months. Think about the plight of the groom and his men in those buttoned up suits. Think about the time of year that you absolutely love. If autumn or spring is your favourite time of the year go with one of them. Make sure you give your guests more than adequate time to plan and prepare for the joyous occasion.

If you want to get married on the beach, then select one of the more sunny seasons; the summer being the perfect option. You can also take your wedding party to a nice destination, like Hawaii, Maui, or Jamaica. For those couples interested in Jamaican garden weddings the summer or spring is a lovely time as well. At these times you will be able to enjoy the lovely array of blooming flowers. If flowers are your primary focus and you absolutely must have a particular set of type then use this to guide your wedding date choice.

Holidays are not exactly the best time to have a Jamaican wedding celebration. The costs involved with planning this type of wedding may be more than you can handle. Vendors will take advantage of you and those times. People will also find it extremely difficult to attend a wedding during this time. Avoid the lent season, and Easter as they might also have some cultural practices. Make sure if you want to have a holiday wedding that you consult your guests, choose a long week end that can accommodate them.

Weddings tend to have some of the most disastrous things happen, if they aren’t planned properly. Do not plan your Jamaican wedding in an hurricane season. This is a prime opportunity to be on America’s funniest wedding videos. If you live in an area that has a lot of snow, think about how your guests will travel into you. Also, for those who are coming in via flights try to avoid the possibilities of flight delays due to poor weather conditions.
