When it comes to picking wedding dates, the sky's the limit. In picking your date though, you might find it fun to associate your special day with a holiday, occasion, or numerical date that is special to you and your sweetie. From lucky holidays like New Year's Day to special days like National Pet Day (4.11.24), there are so many dates to choose from that can make your day of 'I Dos' even more special! We've compiled the best dates, celebrations, and even full moon dates to help you decide on your perfect date.
January is a great time for celebrating new beginnings and renewal, that's why New Year's Day is such a popular holiday for weddings. With the brisk temperatures of this month, winter-themed weddings are a huge hit. For brides, you can warm up with a cozy-yet-chic faux fur shrug to compliment your dress. If you're opting for an alfresco ceremony, go the extra mile for your guests and keep them warm with cozy blankets and opt for venues with fireplaces or firepits like our venue Boulder Creek by Wedgewood Weddings. Top of the celebration with additions like a hot cocoa bar (yes, we can do that!) or add hot toddies to your cocktail menu. Cozy times await!
Florists love this month for floral arrangements that include tulips, amaryllis, white gardenias, classic red or white roses, and beautiful purple delphimiums. If you're going for a chic new year's look, pair wedding colors of black, white, and gold together for a classic look, and add white roses or gardenias to your floral selection.

Keep warm during your winter wedding with shawls and throws
in addition to special blankets for guests.
Moving into February, you can still keep with a cozy winter-weather theme or use vibrant colors from holidays like Valentine's Day or Mardis Gras to add some pop to your color palette. If you choose to celebrate with all of the fun and flair of New Orleans, purple, yellow, green, and gold can bring the party to life. Add party beads and hats as party favors and go a little extra with a specialty King Cake to go with your main wedding cake. As the French say, "Laissez les bons temps rouler!"
This year is also a leap year! Opt for February 29 for an incredibly unique wedding day that very few others can have.
