The Best Wedding Dates for 2024, 2025 & 2026

29th August 2023

When it comes to deciding your wedding date, your options are endless. From special occasions, national holidays, or a numerical date that you love; every couple opts for something totally different to them! Some choose to wed on the date they met, their first date date, or even the day they got engaged.

Traditionally, wedding dates have been chosen based on the couples horoscopes, and some families still follow that tradition. None of the dates below have been marked ‘auspicious’; it’s best to speak to a priest to find the best dates for you.

In this blog, we touch upon some of the key wedding dates for 2024, 2025 & 2026; from the cutest written dates, to the full moons, national holidays & more.

The full Moon is also considered to be an ideal time for marriage. It signifies that your marriage will be blessed with balance, equity & unity. The full Moon itself has always signified heightened emotions, making it the perfect day for a beautiful ceremony of love.

January marks the start of a new year, and getting married during this time can symbolise the beginning of a new chapter in your lives together (especially on New Years Day!). It can also be seen as a fresh start and a time for setting new goals and resolutions as a married couple.

With cool temperatures in the UK, it’s the perfect time to opt for a winter-wonderland or cosy-yet-chic wedding ceremony. Why not top off the perfect ceremony with a hot chocolate bar for kids? Or fake snow & be very Selling Sunset-esque?

What better, than the month of love, to get married?! We’re all romantics at heart.

February is often associated with love and romance due to Valentine’s Day, which falls on February 14th. Getting married around this time can add an extra layer of sentiment and celebration of love to your wedding – how about a theme of red roses?
