With a brand-new year comes a new list of top wedding dates. Last year proved to be a big year for fall weddings, with October 7 as the most popular date and September and October in the lead as the busiest wedding months. And 2018 is shaping up to be another year filled with glorious autumn nuptials, but with a late-summer twist.

It turns out the lazy, hazy days of summer aren’t just ideal for beach bumming and driving with the top down—they’re also prime time for saying “I do.” Of our members on The Knot who’ve registered with a 2018 wedding date—which is more than 1.4 million couples—August 18, 2018 is the number-one most popular wedding day this year. Guests, clear your August schedules for garden parties, beach bashes, vineyard vows and sunny rooftop soirees.
