UK Wedding Dates to Avoid in 2021 and 2022

UK Wedding Dates to Avoid in 2021 and 2022

Choosing your wedding date is one of the first steps in your wedding planning. 2020 has been quite the year, and we must say everyone is looking forward to 2021 or 2022. I certainly hope that those are better than this one has been. If you’re looking at having your wedding in 2021 or 2022, there are some dates to avoid.
Some of those dates may be avoided for personal reasons, or you may want to avoid a specific date because it comes with a spike in prices or it’s a public holiday. Some couples even choose to avoid a date because it’s a bad omen, like “Friday the 13th”. Whichever you decide, here are some days you might want to avoid when planning your Cornish wedding for 2021/2022.

Steven's Photography Tip

If you have your eye on a particular supplier that you REALLY want to have at your wedding then you will want to make sure that your chosen date is available with them, you could ask them what their availability is, but you will probably find it easier to give them a list of your shortlisted dates and let them get back to you with which ones they can do.

Major Sports Dates for The Next Two Years

Imagine getting married during a Champions League Final night. You can bet the groomsmen will be sneaking a look at their phones during your wedding, the groom might even be tempted to do the same too. With lots of sporting events being postponed this year, you should watch out for those if you have your wedding set for 2021/2022. 

Some of them include the Guinness Six Nations Tournament and Superbowl in February, the Tour de France and Wimbledon in July. For 2022, the FIFA world cup between November and December is one to watch out for. You might want to keep an eye on and avoid important premier league and champions league game nights where possible. 2021 and 2022 will be bumper years where sports are concerned.

Personal Dates to Avoid

These could be birthdays, weddings, big anniversaries and other significant days for you or those in your family. Your wedding date should not evoke bad memories or cause tension, especially in your extended family.

Major Public Holidays for The Next Two Years

Sometimes, couples aim to hold their weddings on particular public holidays. The August bank holiday is quite popular with couples when it comes to this. So, if you’re looking to get married on a public holiday, you’re not alone. 

Some other couples want to avoid these dates. This is because they feel their guests could be held up somewhere else, and they want to avoid forcing people into making a change of plans. Whatever your reasons, here are some significant public holiday dates in 2021 and 2022 to watch out for.
