WEDDING DATE CONSIDERATIONS & FLIP-BOOK FAVORS

Considerations for Picking a Wedding DatePicking the date for your special day isn't as easy as you may think. Be sure to check the calendar for dates that you might want to steer clear of - and keep these handy when booking a date or making a deposit.

Brides are not only wearing an alternative dress to depart the wedding, they’re changing gowns for for each phase of their wedding day. Kate Middleton even had one dress for her royal nuptials to Prince William and another for her reception.
