Wedding, Bar & Bat Mitzvah Dates to Avoid 2015-2020

Just got engaged over the holidays?  One of the first decisions you will have to make is when you want to get married. Not just spring, summer fall or winter – but actual dates!  If you’re planning a bar/bat mitzvah, that decision is narrowed down based on the Jewish calendar and your child’s birthday. But either way, the final date for the party is usually up to you. Caterers and venues will offer deals based not only on time of year (winter is typically the least expensive), but dates as well.  Before you sign on the dotted line, we’ve put together a list of religious and secular dates that you may want to avoid booking.
