- Wedding: October 2011
Hey guys–I would love honest opinions here…this is my situation, in a nutshell:
I have a wedding date set for 12/3/11. My FI and I are considering moving it up to 10/15/11 due to pure impatience! (and thinking a bit nicer weather/away from holiday season and away from Xmas bday). Vendors and bridal party are all available on the Oct. date, so I am leaning towards it.
However, 1 of 2 of the best men has a wife who will be unable to attend due to a work obligation she must attend. We are friends, and we def. have hung out before, but she is obviously not as close to me as my other friends are.
Her saying she cannot attend has made me wonder if there are other guests who will have also made obligations too (even though I thought mid October would be a pretty ‘safe’ time, when kids are back to school, things are back to normal and people really aren’t vacationing…)
So, I’m wondering of my options which are:
1. Save everything for the 12/3 date
2. Reschedule wedding for 10/15 date
3. Have legal ceremony a few weeks prior to 12/3 date, so that is our anniversary, officially…then stick to 12/3 date for ceremony and reception for all to see.
PLEASE TELL ME YOUR HONEST THOUGHTS ON THIS SITUATION! Thanks so much!
