Wedding dates to (Potentially) avoid in 2020 & 2021
Welcome back! It's a NEW year and there are a lot of new engagements! Here are some dates to potentially avoid during your wedding planning process.
Personally important dates.
Check your (and your soon to be spouse's) personal calendar. Look for significant events such as family reunions, anniversaries and other family weddings.
Long weekends, where most would have Monday off work, can have disadvantages.
Travel and hotels may charge a premium.
Guests may have standing plans that they wouldn't want to miss.
BUT....you will have an extra day for celebrating.
Dates in 2020 with extra days for celebrating: 01/17-20/2020; 02/14-17/2020;
05/22-25/2020; 07/03-05/2020; 09/04-07/2020; 10/09-12/2020; 12/25-27/2020 and 12/31/2020-01/03-2021.

Dates in 2021 with extra days: 01/01-03/2021; 02/12-15/2021; 05/28-31/2021; 07/02- 05/2021; 09/03-06/2021 and 10/08-11/2021.
Also, keep in mind Mother's Day and Father's Day, which both always fall on a Sunday.
Nearby Local Events.
Keep in mind major events nearby, which can affect the availability to reserve hotels and other vendors. Ball State events such as move-in weekend, Homecoming weekend, Family weekend and graduation could limit your options for vendors and guests accommodations.
Be aware of religious and cultural holidays that may be observed by you or your guests.
Major Sporting Events.
Keep nearby sporting events in mind. It can affect travel and accommodations for your guests.
March Madness (Being held in Indianapolis on 04/03/2021)
Ball State sporting events
Indianapolis sporting events, such as the Colts, Pacers, Fever and Fuel.
Just remember, whichever date you choose, will become a memorable day for you and your soon to be spouse. The earlier you choose a date and send save-the-dates, the more chances that most can make it to celebrate with you!
