Thanks ladies! I'm a planner by nature and wanted to think of a tentative wedding date when I got engaged. I'm a goal setter so nailing down a deadline is important to me because it gives me something to work towards. Thanks for the advice! As much as we want everyone there you ladies and some of the forum posts have helped me realize that sometimes that isn't an option. I think I'll be okay as long as my immediate family and his immediate family are there. Doesn't mean that I won't miss other people, but I'm willing to get married as long as those people are there. The reason that I wanted to choose a date so far in advance is that most of our family members have to submit their vacation time by January so I wanted to think about a time that was: Convenient for everyone or most people, that was not near any major holidays, and a time where Cuba typically has good weather (not too hot, rainy, or humid). I'm glad people can relate. I was beginning to feel crazy.
