Weddings from the Other Side: A Southern Sportsman’s View
Southern weddings have a lot of competition, if you have men in your family who are sports enthusiasts. So what is the best time to get married?
January - other than being a little cold this is a good month
February has Valentine’s Day and, of course, that is usually around the Daytona 500
for those NASCAR fans.
March has uncertain weather in the form of rain and turkey season. Turkey season
along with spring fishing continues into April.
May is a good month. The weather is calm and there are not a lot of conflicts except for
Mother’s Day and Memorial Day.
Summer (June, July and August) is the most popular time for weddings but if you live in
the deep south, the humidity can be unbearable.
Then comes football.
September through November starts the months that require the most planning. College football, TV schedules, and big games can all get in the way of a good wedding date, especially if it is big rivalry. For those hunters in your wedding party, you will need to consider hunting season begins in September and goes through the end of the year.
Scheduling around sporting events can become a contentious element of conversation, but don’t worry. It’s only one weekend and at most two weeks with pre-wedding activities. After that, guys, you can get back to a semi-regular schedule. Remember it’s not about what you may miss it’s about what you and your bride will begin to do together to make memories.
Some things to remember:
Finally, research and select the date together, be flexible and enjoy the date you pick!!
