    Definitely May. I’ve completely avoided the summer for my wedding.

    I’m leaning toward May because of the $1000 you will save on the cruise!  But I really can’t decide, so I didn’t vote in your poll.

    Is mid-May nice in your area?  We’re having a late June wedding in the Balto/DC area.  This year it was over 90 degrees and humid on that day!  But May was too iffy.. May around here tends to be rainy and there are some really nice days and some days that are in the 60s and rainy (like this past Mother’s Day).  Dunno if your area is the same, but it’s something to consider.

    Are both dates a Friday night? My only concern would be that it’s much easier to have a Friday night wedding in the summer. As you mentioned some of your family are teachers and also you may have a lot of people with children who may need to be around when they get out of school. Are you able to rent any tents with an A/C if you are thinking of an outdoor wedding?

    Also how is the weather in Arkansas is May? I know if Boston it is usually very rainy so that’s why I may be a little hesitant on an outdoor wedding in May.

    If you move it to May, we’ll be date twins. 🙂

    I chose May because I think June is too hot as well.

    I voted for June because of your graduations – we got married two weeks after Mr HC’s med school graduation and it was a pretty stressful two weeks – the more time in between, in my opinion, the better (and of course, as a June 6 bride, I can’t knock the June date – it was HOT but everyone still had a great time!)

    If your family works in the school system, you should have it in June. It is so incredibly hard to get time off from the school system, especially right at the end of the year. Your guests are more important than the temperature.

    I would check whether mid-May will actually be much cooler for you. Where I live it is roasting hot from May on through September. I actually had my wedding on November 1st and it was 75 degrees and sunny. In Georgia you have to wait until late October/early November for temperatures in the 70s.

    Alternately, get married inside where there is air conditioning, or get married at night or the evening so that the day will have cooled off, underneath a tent to keep the sun away.

    I say May, because I’m with your FI on the “the sooner the better” boat.

    I figure it all kind of evens out in the end, so … pick the date you guys want.
