The Wedding Dates to Avoid in 2023 and 2024

From holiday weekends to “unlucky” days, consider these wedding dates to avoid before choosing a date. While your wedding date and the meaning behind it is your choice, there several factors you may want to consider before sending out your ‘Save The Dates’.

  1. Holiday weekends can also be more expensive for you, because vendors may be extra busy with other non-wedding events (think florists on Mother’s Day or caterers on Thanksgiving)
  2. You also may want to steer clear of major sporting events or other big national or local events 

Check out the dates below in 2023 and 2024 – popular and unpopular – so you can pick a date and start planning the rest of your wedding.
