April is usually a great month to travel to Cuba because it's warmer than winter and it's still dry season. However that did not work for us as it was exam weeks for the few who are in college, including FI's brother. June is out of the question for me because I'm a teacher and no way am I missing the last month of school. So that left May. It's the beginning of the rainy season, but we figured we should be pretty safe if we keep it to early May.

1. An easy date for FI to remember (1.23) 123!
2. My best friend got married on my birthday last year. And so I decided it would special to be married on her birthday. Its also special because another one of our close friends share the same birthday. And he passed away 6 months ago.
3. It will be freezing in January in CT and UT and we wanted to get away and get a vaca!!
Hope that helps!

We worked it around a 3 day weekend to minimize our guests missing too much work/school (Columbus day falls on Monday, the 11th)
Also it is on the tail end of rainy season which was more affordable.

We chose that bc 1) April has the lowest precipitation compared to the rest of the months 2) by mid April "spring breakers" should be gone from Cancun 3) It's a good time to travel compared to May and into the summer months.. that's when the prices start going up.
Our wedding is on a Friday, FI and I will be there on Tuesday, guests will start arriving on Wed and Thurs. The reason we dont have it on a Sat. is 1) our time slot was chosen, so we bumped our wedding day 1 day before 2) now our guests wont have to go home with hangovers

I do agree that you should have it relatively close to the day you arrive though. So we will get to Cancun on the 22nd and go to our HM on the 26th.
