@LarLa:  I’m in Minnesota and usually November isn’t horribly bad for snow. I’d do what the two of you want, especially since it seems that its very important for your FI to have his BF there.

Just book it. She’ll eventually get over it, you just have to listen to/ignore her complaining fora few  months.

it is your wedding– pick the date that works for you and your fiance. if your mom is a pushy person in general, this will also set the tone for how decisions will be made throughout the planning process.

@LarLa: 

            I’m not 100% sure where you are from but you mentioned different provinces so if you are Canadian depending where you and your far away guests are from, you should be more than ok with weather. I live in Southwestern Ontario and it doesn’t start snowing/blowing until December at least if not January. Sure we’ve gotten flurries occasionally throughout November/December but nothing usually sticks til January (except this year has been pretty bad for snow). I would say just plan the wedding of your dreams no matter what time of year you wish to do it! Good Luck with the planning process!!

@LarLa:  We drove from ON to NB for a november 13 wedding a couple of years ago – it was no big deal at all!

Don’t worry about it 🙂

@LarLa:  good for you for going with the wedding date of YOUR dreams!!! Smile

 

The weather (especially this year where I live) is completely unpredictable! We don’t usually get large amounts snow until January or February, but it’s been snowing since November without any melting, and just yesterday it finally had the chance to melt (a bit…we’re still a long way to go!)
