Picking a Date...

Recommended Posts

I love your wedding site! Who did you go through to set that up? I'm currently working with destinationweddings.com and they said they would set up the site for me. I can only hope that it's as nice as yours!

Thank you everyone for your comments. Because of all of your suggestions to focus on a date that worked for us we have narrowed our choices down to 2 dates...12/31/10 and 2/12/11. My TA is checking into the price difference now and once we determine that, we will make our decision. I've been on here for less than a week and it's already helped make a tough decision much easier.

 

Thank you all so much!

We chose the thanksgiving holiday. It all depends on what you'd like to factor in....if you want to avoid hurricane season, if you want to avoid holidays, etc... there are plenty of good dates that some people might have off work (Like Martin Luther King Day, or Presidents Day, etc) throught the year. Pull out a calendar and see what dates jump out at you. Do you have to have a saturday or could you do a friday or a week day?
Hi Josie,

I see you and your FI rocking the Penn State shrits. Are you from there? I grew up in Williamsport PA which is very close by. By the way, your response in particularly helped me choose 12/31/10 as one of my options. Not only was it something that I really wanted, based on what you mentioned, it might acutally be more convenient for guests since they will more than likely already be off. (And it falls on a weekend this year!)

Thanks!

I think that's the best way to go about it. We orginally had said well we should pick a time where people would want a vacation AKA Winter. But after looking with my sister who's our TA, she ran prices and showed us the difference a week makes and whatnot. We decided on May 1, where we are down there the last week in April. Right after the school break and the prices dropped tremendously. All in all we based ours around the cost. Hope that helps =) AND CONGRATS!!!

    • Peach looks better on tan skin. Red is a nice contrast against fair skin. 
    • How about installing a home web cam? And hire a house sitter to check up every week?
    • You can hire a graphic designer on Fiverr to create the wedding cards then just print them yourself. Another option so you can save money is to create the card how you want it on Canva and have them printed at a printing shop.
    • My wedding is coming soon, and I would like to know where I can find best wedding cards at affordable prices. I only find one store known as Lavenderpaperie.com where the cards are lovely and unique, But I want to know the other option name so that I can choose best wedding card. Please, if you have any suggestion on where to go, let me know. Thanks & Regards,

    • Hi Brides! I have a Wally Bag - 66" available - $90 + shipping (US only) The wally bag typically sells for $120-$180. I used this gown bag once to transport my dress from MN to Mexico for our wedding - IT WAS PERFECT!   I was actually able to pack 4 additional maxi dresses, and my husband's wedding attire, plus a few pairs of shoes and some jewelry. I packed the dress the night before we left, and just moments before we left, I zipped the bag and folded it - ready for travel. It comes up with a nice over-the-shoulder strap, making it really easy to carry through the airports. No issues on Delta with the bag as my carry-on - I chose to put in the overhead bin, but the flight attendant did offer to hang it in the closet for me. Once we got to the resort, about 10 hours after I first folded the bag, I unpacked the bag and my dress was perfect - no wrinkles! My dress was mostly lace and had a bit of a train, but it arrived perfectly!  Honestly, this is the best way to travel with your dress!
