Should I Get Married in 2021 or 2022?

If you’re a prospective bride or groom, congratulations! As you may have heard and know, tens of thousands of couples were forced to postpone their 2020 wedding plans—and according to wedding venue managers nationwide, this means, 2021 dates have quickly filled up with our 2020 couples. 

If you’re newly engaged and starting your planning process, consider dates in 2022 for these various reason: 

Why Consider 2022 for your Wedding Date?

Weekends Filling Up

With plenty of couples postponing their weddings from 2020 to 2021, many weekends have already filled up for many wedding venues. While there are still openings, take the initiative in reaching out to your favorite wedding venue to ask what dates are available in 2022 so you can have your wedding as close to your special date as possible or in the season you’ve always desired. 

Extra Time to Plan

One of the biggest advantages of planning for 2022 is that you’ll have extra time for planning your dream wedding. Typically, it takes an average couple about a year to plan a wedding from start to finish.

Every bride wishes for more planning time – which gives you the opportunity to think through all the details and vet through numerous vendors, so make the most of it! 

You Can Invite More Guests

Your wedding is the most magical day of your entire life, and having all your friends and family present is one of the most important aspects. With positive news around vaccination roll-out, we anticipate travelers becoming more comfortable as well as gatherings of larger groups.

Some venues still have restrictions on guest count in 2021, so a little more time could be just what you need to have all your desired guests at your special day! 

Tips to Consider for Your 2021-2022 Wedding

Whether you decide to get married in 2021 or 2022, you can make it safer and more accessible for other by sending electronic invitations to your guests which is not only safer, but also facilitates quicker responses for RSVPs so you can better prepare for the number of guests planning to attend.

You might decorate and set out hand sanitizer at your reception, and consider hiring a videographer to livestream the event to those who don’t feel comfortable traveling.

A fun way of incorporating these ideas is to order custom masks and hand sanitizer for the guests as gifts as they arrive for them to use throughout the ceremony and reception.

Search online for a wedding gown, your ideal wedding music, or scheme for your wedding venue. You can use online images for inspiration, to get a better idea of what you want when it’s time to talk to your wedding vendors, and compare prices online just as easy, if not quicker, as you would be visiting in person.

2022 is sure to be a banner year for weddings, with thousands of couples excited to take the next step in their relationship and celebrate the most beautiful day of their lives!

Take advantage of this year to go online and shop, select your design themes and choose your wedding venue ahead of time. When you’re ready to begin, be sure to contact Marinaj Banquets to find out how easy it can be to set up your venue for the big day.
