- Wedding: August 2010
Hi Bees! My Fiance and I will be getting married at the lovely Garden Valley Ranch in Petaluma, CA. It’s basically Northern Bay Area, and while we wanted to get married on 10/2/10, I’ve recently started debating that date because of a few things: Our wedding site is COMPLETELY outdoors. Northern Cal doesn’t get “cold” at night, but it can get nippy, depending on the weather. I also realized that in October, it gets dark around 7:00. My mom has voiced some concern that if it gets dark around 7:00, outdoors, even if we rent heaters, that people will start leaving early. This is a legit concern I think. If we push our date to August (probably beginning of August as I don’t think the venue is available at the end of August), we’ll have an extra hour of daylight and the weather will likely be warmer. I think I know what makes sense here, but I just loved the sound of the date 10/2/10 and a fall wedding. Any ideas or hints? We could always rent outdoor space heaters but I’m wondering if it would just be smarter to try and go with a warmer/lighter time period. If we did August instead of October I would lose about a month and a half of planning time, but at this point, we would still have eleven months (instead of 13). What do you awesome bees think?? One thing to consider is that the music has to be off at 9 pm anyways.. so I think I’m just struggling between going with a cooler sounding date (I know, a little vain) and possible weather problems… or a less cool-sounding date and more predictable weather circumstances. Thanks so much for your input!
