The Most Popular Wedding Days?

In Australia, we are blessed to have pretty good weather year-round, and this includes Adelaide too. With four distinct seasons, a bride and groom can choose any time of the year to suit either the type of wedding they would like. Some are just keen to get married as soon as possible.

The most popular day for weddings is on Saturday. Of course, this is due to most people working from Monday to Friday and the first day of the weekend gives everyone a day to recover before the week starts again.  Almost half of the weddings in Australia take place on a Saturday. Friday and Sunday compete for the next most popular day to get married, with Friday gaining more popularity recently.

Which Months Have the Most Weddings.

Similar to the trend in the travel industry, shoulder seasons prove to be getting more popular for tying the knot. October, November and March are the most popular months to have a wedding. Some reasons for this are avoiding extreme heat and cold, more flexibility in time off work outside major holidays and venues not being as booked with other functions, meaning easy booking and lower prices, in theory. Spring and summer also provide a bounty of colour though flowers or fall leaves which add to the romance of the day.

One particularly popular day for couple to get married is the Saturday after Valentine’s Day. As a traditional time of romance, and warm weather across the country, it is one day with a large volume of weddings outside the most popular months.

If you are planning a wedding and you preferred dates fall during the popular months above, and if you want to get married on a Saturday, then you need to plan and book venues, celebrants, photographers, DJs, and any entertainment as early as possible to avoid the disappointment of them already having commitments.

Adelaide has similar trends to the whole country, however with iconic areas such as the Barossa Valley attracting brides and grooms from all over Australia, it is also a good idea to book venues there early. Taking photos there or working as a wedding photographer in McLaren Vale wineries is always fun and the backdrop is amazing. So, don’t wait too long to book the services you need if you plan to marry there.

We also have a list of dates to avoid getting married on in 2018. They include common holidays and other big events where you will clash with people’s schedules and disrupt others holiday plans.
