Help me pick a DATE!!!

Recommended Posts

AHHHHH.....I am going crazy....I CANNOT seem to pick a date! Originally, I was planning for a Friday, because I figured it would be cheaper and since we bumped up the wedding to sometime the end of September or beginning of October, I thought we would have trouble finding Vendors for a weekend. I didn't want to do a Sunday, because people have to work the next day, etc.

SO, we narrowed it down to September 28th or October 5th.....well, the wedding coordinator at our venue will be gone on vacation up until the 27th...the makes me nervous, so the 5th it was! Of course, I have heard MULTIPLE complaints about doing it on a Friday morning and people having to take off work...blah blah blah....didn't care much really. Now comes my current dilemma......that weekend is Columbus Day weekend, so most people have Monday off.....Both my venue and Caterer are available on Sunday, October 7th....now I find out that the photographer I may use is ALSO available on that Sunday and its not any more expensive than a friday.

SO.....Do I do it on Friday the 5th or Sunday the 7thhuh.gif?? The only thing really making me want to do it on Friday is that its fun and different and a great way to kick off the weekend, plus its my parents wedding anniversary and I thought that would be cool....but I do realize that its very inconvenient for some people. Sunday is better and more considerate for guests and its not really a big deal to have it then, just pretty standard. Okay....sorry for rambling....what do you girls think?!?!?!

Are most of your guests traveling anyways?? I do like the idea of the wedding annivesary shared with your parents, that's really nice... but if I were considering going to a wedding, and it'd be a hassle for me to get there on time on a Friday, I might just skip it all together. But, if it's on a Saturday of a long weekend, and I don't have to worry about how late I'm staying out, I'd more than likely attend that wedding before the Friday one. Just my honest opinion as a guest.

I am having my wedding on a friday and I think as long as you have it a little later it's fine. but you could always do your rehearsal on your parents anniversary and then have the wedding on the Sunday?

Now there is a good idea smile159.gif The wedding is in the morning (10:30) because we are doing a brunch.....omlet station, waffle station, bloody mary bar, etc. So, Sunday will probably work best but I really love the idea of having the rehearsal on my parent's anniversary, THANKS! smile03.gif
