- Wedding: April 2016
Hello, I just got engaged a few days ago and my fiance and I have picked out a date. We began dating on April 25, 2009 and he proposed to me on April 25, 2013. I want to finish college before our wedding, so we decided to get married on Apeil 25, 2017, four years away. 2015 and 2020 are the only days in the next deacade where it falls on a Saturday and 2016 is a leap year as well as my final year of college. This date is very important to the both of us, but unfortunately falls on a Tuesday. My mom has told me that if we have the wedding on this date, most of my guests will not show up, so she suggested that we get married on our day, but have the ceremony and reception the following weekend without telling anyone besides immediate family of our actual marriage date. This doesn’t feel right to me, especially because I want our wedding dat to be the day we became man and wife. Does anyone have suggestions or advice for how I can work this all out?
