Great dates for your wedding

One of the benefits of marrying on a weekday is the increased flexibility you have to choose a memorable, lucky, or auspicious date for your wedding.

One way to ensure you remember the date is to choose a date that is an ascending or descending run of numbers. Here are some memorable and auspicious dates.

When considering booking a memorable or auspicious day you need to take into account two things:
a. The legal requirement to lodge your Notice of Intended Marriage with your chosen celebrant no later than a month before
b. The likelihood that demand will be heavy, so book as early as possible.

I loved how relaxed the ceremony was.  You made it such a warm, welcoming and involved ceremony. I had many comments to attest to that!  - Sherilei who married Arren at Forestglen Park on Valentine's Day

Exactly what we wanted. Short but sentimental. Everyone loved it - Kylie and John who came down from the Sunshine Coast hinterland to be married at Southbank Parklands and who told me that they chose me because I had 'the best feedback on the Internet'!
