Wedding Dates During The World Cup 2014
If you are planning your wedding dates during the World Cup 2014 here are the important dates you need to know.
The World Cup will be running from 12th June 2014 – 13th July 2014.
If you are planning to have your wedding next year please bear these dates in mind – you and your guests may love or hate football but whatever your feelings please take on board that this may effect your wedding celebrations in some way or another.
I bring this up as I know from experience that such events can cause problems.
Back in the 2010 tournament, I wad Djing at a wedding where the bride expressly did not want the football to interrupt her special day but one inconsiderate guess ‘smuggled’ in an Ipad to watch a particular game, which was a big distraction from her special day.
If you do not object, then why not make an allowance for bringing in or using the big screen at your venue – it can be a big distraction but there will be many who will love you more for doing so!
If you’re really into your football, why not plan on taking in a match on your honeymoon – Brazil is a lovely destination – more details here:- http://www.fifa.com/worldcup/index.html
If you’re going to embrace the football, find out the match times nearer the date, and organise your special events around these times, if Kick Off is at 8.00 pm, maybe have your First Dance at 7.30 pm – that way you will not be disappointed that guests miss any ‘events’ you have organised.
The alternative view could be that if you do not care about football, why make any plans to accommodate it? If people would rather miss your wedding than miss a match – then do they really deserve an invite to your wedding? Make sure the main bar TV is turned off to avoid any temptation.
However with an abundance of Smart Phones, I think it will be very unlikely that you will be able to ban it – so why not embrace it?
Then off course there is the FA Cup Final to consider on 10th May this year, the Grand National, Wimbledon, The Ashes, ……
Picking a date for your wedding can be fraught with hidden dangers.
