It seems simple, but shortly after getting engaged it is important to lock in a date for your wedding. Regardless if you are getting married in 6 months or 2 years down the road, you should not only pick a month, but the actual day you will be celebrating your nuptials. Some people you invite will need a significant amount of time before hand to make work arrangements and personal calendar adjustments. If you find yourself plenty of trendy seasonal wedding themes to consider that could help you come to a decision on when to get married. For example consider a casual summer wedding outdoors if you envision a more Boho chic approach to your day.
When is the Honeymoon?

Depending on what type of honeymoon you envision it could take months out of booking. Booking a high-end cruise in advance is an option that allows you to enjoy the amenities aboard without further travel or planning.

Either way, planning ahead of time will make your first trip as a married couple all that more sweet!
