My wedding date is bipolar. I had set it for 04/09/2011 however because of religious reasons (according to hindu calendar) I have to change the date. Apparently, it is inauspicious time from mid July to end of September. The suitable dates this year are only in October. My fiance’s, moms and father in laws birthday are all in that month. They are supportive & are ok to have the wedding that month. After that it gets too cold so I would have to move it to next year, which my fiance doesn’t want. Part of me wants to move it to 2012 for a nice summer wedding. I was thinking April or there after but the weather is unpredictable. Also, then I would be engaged for almost 2 years and I’m worried that the wedding excitement will go away. I’m so confused, I don’t know what to do!!! Should I have the wedding in October? move it to next year? please help

I think October is becoming one of the more popular months for weddings. Not sure where you live but i think October is a beautiful month to get married in, great weather, leaves changing (think how great the pictures could be!)..Plus what a great time for a honeymoon..right when its starting to get cold you can jet off to somewhere warm!

I would move it to next summer! It just gives you more time to add to the details and get everything right. The excitement won’t go away, just keep making events wedding related lol! Bridal shower, bridesmaid luncheon, save the date party, engagement party etc etc

It sounds like you really want that summer wedding. I’d move it, if thats the case. The wedding excitement doesn’t go away, trust me. 🙂 It’ll seem so far away, but when it gets closer you’ll say “wow … I can’t believe how fast that flew!!”
Tha’t smy opinion though. What does your FI think?

i understand i had to move also the wedding for the calendar reason but check with another astrologer because july-september every year is not the best time HOWEVER there are some auspicious date.
We wanted to get marry in july august so our family could be with us, we set 29/07/11 than we move it on the 07/07/2011 before the “bad” periods but we would have only 7 days to plan the wedding on sri lanka. So we went to another reputable astrologer that knew our time schedules and the reasons to that. Finally he gave us a date on the 22/07/2011.
So definitly try another astrologer!

@ karissa — that is a good way to keep the excitement going for the extra 8 months, I guess I could have more days of brainstorming wedding ideas!
@njm1313 — good observation! I would like a summer wedding, & I think i’m happy thinking “extra planning time”. I’m planning on going to India for shopping and i’m only going to have 2 weeks 🙁 which is not enough time plus i can only go next month cuz our busy period begins and then it gets to hot their. my fiance really wants to get married this year & start our life together. I’m just so overwhelmed!!
@nil — we have checked with a few pundits and they all agree about the falling star, my hall won’t be ready by july so moving it up isn’t an option 🙁 My parents are verifying dates with the priests again and I’m hoping something resolves soon!
