What Is The Best Day To Have My Wedding?
You’ve been proposed to and you’ve said “yes”.
You’ve made your proposal, and the answer was “yes”.
Planning the “BIG DAY”.
What is the best day to have my wedding and reception?
Think outside of the box.
Most couples start with looking at Saturday nights in spring or autumn, and then find out that most venues have already been booked for the next three years.
It’s time to think outside of the box.
Begin With The End In Mind
If you’ve ever read Stephan Covey’s “Seven Habits of Highly Effective People”, you will be familiar with his second habit, “Begin With The End In Mind”.
Now, think ahead to celebrating your 10 year wedding anniversary.
How would you like to celebrate this?
For most people, it’s get up and go to work, just like any other day. Maybe you will go out for dinner in the evening, after a tiring and stressful day at work. That’s hardly a romantic way to spend you anniversary.
Wouldn’t You Prefer An Annual Holiday To Mark Your Anniversary?
Do you ever feel that your birthday comes and goes each year without any ado? This is the day that you were born, yet it slips by as just another insignificant date on the calendar.
Your wedding anniversary doesn’t have to have the same insignificance. You have a choice. With a tiny amount of foresight and planning, your wedding anniversary can be made so much more special by being marked with an annual holiday. You will feel like the King and Queen, having the day set aside in your honour.
Why Be Like Everybody Else
Rather than the typical scenario most couples face of waking up on their wedding anniversary and having to face the usual grind of waking up, getting ready for work, getting the kids ready for school and facing peak hour traffic, consider this alternative. You could wake up next to the one you love, knowing it’s your anniversary and also knowing that you can snuggle up, getting up when you please.
How Do You Do This?
There are two public holidays every year that don’t move.
- Australia Day – 26th January
- Anzac Day – 25th April
Simply plan your wedding for either of these two dates and it’s a guarantee that you’ll always get the day off for your anniversary.
My personal preference is for Anzac Day. The obvious concern people have is that it may be considered disrespectful to the fallen. I would counter this concern with the fact that their are no veterans left from the First World War, and that there are virtually none still alive from the Second World War.
Also a good choice, especially as it typically marks the end of the summer holiday season.
