Picking a date issues?

Recommended Posts

As a newbie....I realize I am just at the begining of the issues but....did anyone have any issues picking a date around holidays and family schedules? My family was easy, set the date and they will be there. His family is in Ireland and I am now stuck with Easter week due the kids school schedule. Does anyone else have issues with getting married the week before or of a holiday? Am I just crazy?

 

Any advice? Thanks in advance

No you aren't crazy I got it too. I said tough this is the date i'm picking if its not suitable tough and I'm sorry you can't be there.

 

My friend asked me to make it half term (which sounds like what they've said) and to avoid one of their kids birthdays!! I told them to get stuffed and booked it for when I wanted - It costs so much more being half term and their flights which will horrific prices

We definitely had issues... we were booked for Dec 19 and everyone was either a) happy that school would be done after exams by then or B) pissed that it was close to Christmas, but not close enough.smile41.gif

Then we changed it to Dec 12 because FI's mom couldn't get the week before Christmas off smile35.gifand some people won't be able to come (who are in school), but my mom was psyched, because flights leaving before Dec 10 were way cheaper from Australia.

 

No matter what you do, some people will find a reason to complain and try to bend your date.

We had some people wanting January, some wanting the summer in Ottawa, etc.fryingpan.gif

 

You have to do what's right for YOU and FI. Screw everyone else. Seriously. It's such a headache!

Congrats and welcome, Kerry!

 

My wife and I got married on Memorial Day weekend. Because it was a holiday weekend, some of the folks we invited were not able to make it, as they had already made other plans and couldn't change them. So, looking back, I think it might have been better to have made the date a non-holiday weekend.

 

Anyway, best wishes with the planning!

We were orig. going to do Valentines Day but our TA said it would be much more expensive bc of Presidents week and schools are out so we changed our date to my FH grandparents 60th wedding anniv. So that worked out great but when prices were published it was only $5 more pp to do it on Feb 14.

We had a really hard time with cousins in high school and my mom and sister are teachers. At the beginning we were trying to find a date that worked for everyone - but then we were going south at a time that neither FI and I wnated to. Eventually we decided on a date that WE wanted and gave everyone plenty of notice with the caveat that we expected that not everyone would be able to go!

I would only worry about the people you absolutely NEED to be there (i.e. parents, best friend, etc). If you give enough notice, everyone who cares about you will try as hard as they can to make it. The others...oh well! It's impossible to accomodate every single person on your guest list. The key is the amount of notice you give I think.

    • Hundreds of years before, the basic jewellery were made out of seashells and bone, trees and animal skin. In the ancient times, the Egyptian jewellery first came into existence. Egyptian culture inhabited technology, gemstones, and precious metals early in comparison to other places. They were inspired by the culture of royalty and aristocracy which led to thinking noble like having a deep appreciation for luxury. This made them create impactful jewellery and leading trends. Copper was the first metal that came into existence through which we as humans got so many jewellery items.  However, the major focus on jewellery came when they discovered gold. This allowed the Egyptian to rule as the first jewellery maker. The ancient Egyptians valued adornment and were worn by both men and women.  Material and metals: The plethora of material which was used in the making of this Egyptian jewellery was basically gold and silver. Egyptian has mostly attracted towards gold and the availability of silver was less in Egypt as compared to any other place. The colour variation was due to the mixing of elements such as alloys like copper, iron, silver into gold.  Charm jewellery: It was then also an interesting concept to have charms in necklaces, bracelets and other jewellery items. It’s just they were made up of stones and precious or semi-precious jewellery. In this picture above the necklace is adorned with precious stones in different charms shapes. Gem and stones: The more royal pieces of Egyptian jewellery were adorned with the precious jewellery items. The gemstones were semi-precious stones, precious stones are other various gems. The most prized stone were lapis lazuli, rock crystal, and pearls. Emeralds were also found in these jewellery pieces. These were made from ground quartz and then molded into expensive gemstones. They are also used as charm jewellery when molded or carved in different shapes.
    • Congratulations! Where you are you getting married? 
    • It’s my wedding five months from now and we badly need ideas because everyone’s mind is not working right now and I, as the bride, cannot even think of what I really want to have on my wedding day. I want something simple yet unique. Something that suits for Colombian women and bride. Can you help me out with this? Thanks! I will really appreciate your comments!
