We’re assuming you have just said ‘yes’ and you’re ready to dive headfirst into planning your dream wedding. But why wait for a later date? Don’t put off the celebration of your love when you can make it happen sooner than you think? That’s right, it’s not too late to tie the knot in 2024!

At For Better For Worse, we’re all about making your wedding dreams a reality, even if you’re working with a tight timeline. A 2024 wedding is still in reach, so keep calm, you will only find good news here.

And here’s why saying ‘I-Do’ this year is an absolute win-win:


  1. Still Plenty of Dates Available

Despite the calendar flipping pages faster than you can say “wedding bells,” there are still some fantastic dates waiting to be claimed in 2024. Whether you’re eyeing a summer soiree or a cosy winter affair, there are plenty wedding venues just waiting for you to book.

You will find most weddings venues last remaining dates will be mid-week, so keep an open mind with dates, this will ensure the least amount of disappointment.


  1. Save Big with Last-Minute Deals

Who doesn’t love saving a penny, especially when it comes to wedding expenses? With a shorter lead time, you’ll find that many vendors and venues are more than willing to offer sweet deals to fill up their calendars.

Mid-week wedding offers will be a favourite as wedding venues will be looking to fill their diaries up just as much as your wanting to wed. Bare this in mind when enquiring and visiting your venues, ask them about their special offers and added extras (if they haven’t already wowed you with them already)

So, with a last-minute wedding, not only do you get to celebrate sooner, but you can also keep some extra money in your pocket! (or put it towards your dream honeymoon)


  1. Any Day Can Be Your Big Day

Gone are the days of only getting married on Saturdays. Weekday weddings are all the rage now, and for good reason. Weekends see the lowest costs from venues and suppliers, compared to their rates for the weekend.

Research shows that Mondays are the most popular wedding dates for 2024. So, before this becomes a permanent statistic, book that Monday wedding. Not only does it give you more flexibility with venue availability, but it also means you and your guests can enjoy an extended weekend of celebrations! (and who wouldn’t want an extra 2 days of prep before the big day)


  1. Snap Decisions, Snappy Results

Let’s face it, planning a wedding can sometimes feel like a marathon. But with a shorter wedding planning timeframe, you’ll be making snappier decisions and seeing results before you know it.

This avoids all the possible decisiveness, trust your gut, and go for what you truly want. It’s all about seizing the moment and embracing the excitement of the journey.

Planning a wedding within 3 months or even less is totally doable, have a clear wedding planning checklist and just go for it! And if you have no idea on where to start, our experts have written the ultimate guide on how to start your wedding planning.


  1. Picture-Perfect Dates

Speaking of dates, let’s talk about the sheer charm of those lovely sounding dates in 2024. There’s just something special about the symmetry and rhythm of a date like 24/08/24 or 24/12/24, don’t you think? It’s like the universe is aligning to make your wedding day even more magical.
