The wedding is a ceremony that is celebrated anywhere in the world. Different cultures have different ways of performing this but all of them have the purpose of formalizing an union between two individuals.
Different cultures celebrate a wedding in their own special way, according to their customs and traditions. While there are those who only choose to have a simple ceremony, other cultures make a banquet out of it. These large celebrations can last up to several days.
Also, each culture has its way of performing the ceremony. Sometimes, traditional ceremonies are combined with religious practices that make for a truly unique wedding.
But things somehow change and there are newer practices followed by couples in their wedding. In the past, the couple took a very active role of planning their own wedding. Today, wedding planners make it convenient for couples to plan their wedding by leaving everything to the planner. All that couple has to do, is provide their budget and their vision for the wedding and the wedding planner will do the rest.
However, no matter how uniquely different traditions hold their weddings, what remains constant throughout the world is that these two people who are about to be married are the stars in their ceremony.
The wedding ceremony is considered to be one of the most beautiful and unforgettable moments in a person’s life.
However, it might be just an once-in-a-lifetime event. This will be the day which you try to keep in your memory for many many years to come. You commit a great amount of your time organizing and preparing for this special moment.

WHICH MONTH ARE YOU GETTING MARRIED?
There are some ancient words of supposed wisdom on wedding months, contained in the following rhyme:
Married when the year is new, he’ll be loving, kind and true.
When February birds do mate, you wed not dread your fate.
If you wed when March winds blow, joy and sorrow both you’ll know.
Marry in April when you can, joy for maiden and for man.
Marry in the month of May, and you’ll surely rue the day.
Marry when June roses grow, over land and sea you’ll go.
Those who in July do wed, must labour for their daily bread.
Whoever wed in August be, many a change is sure to see.
Marry in September’s shrine, your living will be rich and fine.
If in October you do marry, love will come but riches tarry.
If you wed in bleak November, only joys will come, remember.
When December snows fall fast, marry and true love will last.
You need to take the rhyme with a pinch of salt though. Despite the rhyme’s warning, May is one of the most popular months for weddings, and November, one of the least. Your choice of date will undoubtedly be influenced by far more practical matters, such as the availability of your chosen venue, particularly if you have only a short time to plan.
