Did you know that one of the things that distinguish Georgia from all other states in America is that it contains the highest number of married couples in the country? Did you know that happily married people tend to outlive those who are single? And did you know that Georgia has one of the most breathtaking wedding destinations in America? It’s fall and this is the season the wedding fever peaks in this Great State. If you are reading this, chances are that you have the fever and I believe you’ll find the things I’m about to share helpful.
Getting Married in Georgia in 2018
As usual, for your wedding to be successful, you need a solid plan. Most couples who intended to get married in Georgia this year probably targeted this season because it has the perfect weather for an ideal wedding day. Part of your wedding plan should involve the environment you want to get married in. Any wedding planner in GA will recommend getting married in fall because of the reason indicated earlier. I am a very open-minded person and just because everyone prefers the fall doesn’t mean that you can’t get married in winter or other seasons. I will admit though, that fall has the least complications if you want to get married here. However, if you are up for the challenge, don’t get scared of getting married in December. Chances are that most wedding destinations are booked at this season, but do you see that if most people target this season, it means that most wedding venues will be available during the seasons most people are shy to get married, like winter?
You need to have a wedding date. If you just got engaged and plan to get married in the next two months, I mean by the end of November, now is the best time to try your luck. Expect that most wedding destinations will be booked but the bookings are not absolute. Cancellations often take place and chances are that you may find your perfect venue available for your perfect wedding date. Regardless, there are various affordable wedding venues in GA. That’s one of the beauties of getting married here. Be open-minded and willing to consider other places just in case the perfect one is booked on your preferred wedding date. You never know; sometimes you get the most beautiful experiences from outcomes you either did not like or anticipate.
The Considerate Bride
This goes to the bride/ groom or the one in charge of planning the wedding. Chances are that as the bride, you have been planning your wedding for a long time and by now, you know pretty much everything you want for your ideal wedding day. Ensure that everything goes according to plan. Choose a wedding date that works for both you and your groom. In as much the groom is not necessarily so involved with the wedding plans, it is nice to consider him and ensure that he won’t be inconvenienced. It is your day after all, and your happiness is essential. Hence, believe it or not, a big part of your happiness on the wedding day depends on the happiness of the groom. Remember to include his happiness in your plan and provided the two of you are in the “all kisses, flowers, and hugs mode”, you will, indeed, have a blast that day.
The Budget Factor
Your budget should involve everything that costs money. Ensure that your wedding planner is clear about all expenses right off the bat so that you plan accordingly. Someone recently told me that she wants a marriage, not a wedding. What she meant was that she would rather have a decent wedding that just commemorates the dedication, commitment, and love between her and her husband and afterward have a long and happy marriage, rather than have a very expensive wedding and spend the rest of her marriage trying to settle debt that will only contribute to making her married life miserable. I hope you get the sense in that.
Georgia is a beautiful place to get married. From beautiful mountains ranges to serene shorelines, and a rich cultural history revolving around its old south architecture, you have lovely locations and options for a wedding to remember.
