Totally appropriate and considerate. I checked with our immediate families, our officiants and our bridal party prior to booked a date!

I definitely think it’s appropriate.  We consulted with our families and really close friends before picking our date to make sure the people closest to us could be there.

Always good to check with your VIPs. Just don’t come back on here and complain if they decline after you plan your wedding around their availability. 😉

It’s a special compliment when you are asked if the date works for you!

No, not rude at all.  I think it’s a great idea.

Is it a local wedding for them or will they need to travel far? You said “these dates in LA” so that is the only part that makes me wonder. If they live in LA, then yes it is of course fine and probably appreciated. I checked with both immediate families and bridal party before picking my date.

xtals:  I don’t think it’s rude ! If it was me I would be very touched that I meant so much to you that you would make sure I’m available for your wedding. Go on and ask them. 

ETA : Maybe they’ll be okay with many of your date suggestions and will simply tell you to decide what you prefer because either way, they’re available.
