One of the most important aspects of planning the perfect Las Vegas wedding really comes down to one of three aspects: the venue, the guests, and the date of the wedding. At Lucky Little Chapel we have you covered with one of the most beautiful and all-inclusive wedding venues in Las Vegas. All that’s left for you to do is settle on the perfect wedding date! But how exactly should you choose the perfect wedding date?
Demand vs. Cost
As you read this post there are two very important things that you need to consider when choosing your wedding date that will directly impact your wedding day in terms of availability and cost. Essentially, the more in demand the date is, the higher the cost of booking the venue of your choice for that day will be.
Vanity Dates and Holidays
When it comes to picking the perfect wedding date, many couples tend to first look at vanity dates and holidays. That is to say the most popular day(s) of the year for weddings are no to no surprise the holidays— and for good reason! There’s something very romantic and special about the holidays that make for popular wedding days. This includes the obvious ones like Christmas, New Year’s, and Valentine’s Day, but also some of the smaller holidays like Memorial Day, 4th of July, and Labor Day.
Because of the popularity of these days, it’s likely that there will be less available for booking your wedding. On the off chance that you are fortunate enough to book your dream wedding venue for the holiday that you want, you will likely have to pay a premium due to surge pricing.
So one thing to consider when choosing the perfect wedding date is whether you want to compete with every other couple who chooses the perfect wedding date or should they choose a less busy date.
Saturday, or Not?
The other scheduling conflict to consider when choosing the perfect wedding date is whether or not you want to have your wedding on a Saturday. Saturdays are some of the busiest days for weddings. This is likely due to the fact more people are available to attend or host a wedding on the weekends in addition to the fact that many churches only conduct weddings on Saturdays due to Sunday service.
Should You Choose the Venue Over the Date?
Lastly, you will want to consider which you would like to prioritize more: the venue of your choice or the date of your wedding. You may find yourself in a situation where the venue of your dreams is available (but not the day that you would prefer) and you have to decide on which you would rather have: the venue or the date of your choice.
While you will not always have to make this decision, it is good to have your “needs” and “wants” prioritized in order to make the wedding planning stage the easiest.
So when you are planning your wedding, you want to keep in mind what exactly you want: do you want the wedding date of your dreams, or to save expenses where you can? If you get lucky though, you may be able to find the wedding date of your dreams for a great price!
