Expert wedding planning advice on how to pick a wedding date from Marry Me Tampa Bay

MMTB – Expert Advice – Picking A Wedding Date

It’s engagement season, and 2022 is looking to be shaping up to be busier than 2021. So picking a wedding date that works for you and your family is going to be more important than ever.

Marry Me Tampa Bay tapped our Lead Dream Maker and Master Wedding Planner, Tammy Waterman, along with some Tampa Bay wedding colleagues for their best tips.

Expert Advice: 10 Tips For Choosing the Perfect Wedding Date

This article touched on everything from being mindful of Spring Break and the St. Pete Grand Prix to sweltering summer heat.

We’re excited to see so many awesome quotes from Tammy, starting with:

“When considering a wedding date, consider the availability of your immediate family and those closest to you. Beyond that, you will always have someone on your list who has a scheduling conflict for one date or another. You’ll never please everyone, so don’t even try. There will always be one or two people on your guest list who have scheduling conflicts.” -Tammy Waterman

Special Moments Event Planning – Sarasota Wedding Planner – Powel Crosley Wedding – Sarasota wedding-


Chevonne and Vaughn’s destination Sarasota wedding was a magical evening that brought the couple’s family and friends to a private estate decorated in sparkling lights and romantic florals.

Big Thank you to the kind words below that Chevonne had to share about Special Moments Event Planning =)

After hiring a wedding planner whom she didn’t initially click with, Chevonne refined her search and chose Special Moments Event Planning.

“I initially worked with a different wedding planner who I was completely unhappy with. She was talented and had managed a sizable number of weddings, but didn’t seem to want any input from me regarding my own wedding, which was terribly off-putting,” the bride shared. “We were looking for someone who understood our personalities, style, and vision. We wanted someone who had a great deal of wedding planning experience, who was accustomed to working with a diverse clientele and who had planned weddings at our wedding venue before. We hired Special Moments Event Planning because not only were Tammy and her team inviting, confident, and incredibly knowledgeable, they had planned weddings at our venue a number of times.”

Blush Garden Wedding – Ritz Carlton – Featured MMTB

Rochelle and Che’s intimate Sarasota wedding embraced the serene Florida coastline with a waterfront celebration nestled amongst hovering palm trees. Transforming their ballroom with blush pink details and lit candles, the bride and groom invited friends and family from all over to witness their winter nuptials.

After hiring Special Moments Event Planning, Rochelle felt more than confident to bring her vision to life with a wedding planner by her side.

“I wanted to be as hands-off as possible. Finding someone with experience and patience to plan our 55-person wedding with me as I narrowed down all of the options was something I knew I really needed. Trusting my planner was a huge step in the process of putting the pieces together and instead of overthinking anything; I let her choose things that really spoke to me,” Rochelle revealed. “Tammy seemed to really know what she was doing. She was extremely organized and well-connected. You could say she helped make wedding planning a breeze, especially since we planned the wedding in a little less than six months!”
