@StarIzInkd:  Dang that is a toughie.  I think you should talk to your Uncle and do it the 3rd.  When we set our date we basically had to remember that if we wait until the perfect day that EVERYONE is available we would never be able to get married.

@StarIzInkd:  No matter what, you won’t make everyone happy. Pick the people you will work around and select a date. What about the first weekend in November? That may be an option?

@StarIzInkd:  I agree with the PP – talk to your uncle, and have it on the 3rd. I don’t know exactly the type of fast you’re talking about, but most of them just require you to forego certain types of food, like meat or grains, so perhaps you could ensure that there will be food and drink items he can eat, and remember to let him observe anything else necessary so that he can both celebrate your wedding and observe his fast.

Trust me, if you try and find a date that works for everyone, you’ll never get married. I’m facing a similar dilemma, actually.

Assuming your uncle is Jewish, 10/3 is yom kippur. His fast would end on the evening of 10/4. But other than that, why would that prevent him from going to your wedding? However, that really shouldn’t affect your wedding timeline. You’ve been engaged for so long, you should pick the date that works best for YOU. I think it’s sweet you’re being considerate but at the end of the day what matters more – you getting married or making sure your uncle is happy at one family member’s wedding?
