Hey guys, I would love if I could get some support/advice about my Dec. 3 wedding this year.
I am considering changing the date to October because I really am unsure Xmas decorations all over the venue, in addition to it being a busy time of year for people to travel…I’m also considering the weather in Oct. will probably be a bit nicer and it’ll be lighter out as well…
But, Dec. in NJ, especially early Dec. can be warm or cold, no one can predict that. So I am just unsure what I should do — keep the date or change it? My vendors can all do both dates.

Is there anything else locking you into your current date? Have you purchased a dress?
October will probably be nicer out, but it’s more of a peak wedding time here so you might run into things being more expensive. Weather-wise, it’s unlikely to snow that early in December but could still be cold.
I started visiting venues in December and the decorations were beautiful – but that’s up to your taste and vision for what the wedding should look like. It could require you to spend less on decor.

@ahavah: I did purchase my dress, BM dresses, basically everything but it all still will go nicely with the October date. However…I did sent the STD’s — which is what is locking me at my current date but I don’t think I should let a magnet decipher my anniversary date.
I would just call up everyone and tell them what happened if we did change dates. We really did get a great deal for October due to a cancelation. I just feel like an ass for sending out the STD’s but I wasn’t thinking straight, and I am sure people wouldn’t be that peeved about it. It’s only a good month or so earlier…
I already called my party and my vendors and they are all available…it’s basically all on me and my FI right now, which I think we are both leaning toward October.
I do love Xmas and the decorations, but not sure if I want this in my pictures. I feel its still early enough to tell everyone my decision, if I do change it.

My FI and I decided to chaange to the October date, and I already called some guests and they said it works better for them :O) I am so happy! Thanks for all your thoughts!
