    @MsGinkgo:  no matter what, you will not find a date to please everyone. It sounds like you’ve already tried to be accommodating, and really, you need to pick the date that works best for your groom and you.

    Your wedding date is supposed to be convenient for YOU, not for your entire guest list. Have a wedding when you want to. If they can make it, great. If they can’t, that’s ok too.

    @MsGinkgo:  I agree with @TattedNYBride.  You will never find a date that will work for every guest on your list.  It sucks, but everyone has different schedules (and sometimes unexpected things come up).  

    I will say, though, that some teachers may still be able to make it.  I don’t know about the time off situations in Canada, but my mom is a teacher (and lives 1000+ miles away from my fiance and I/where we’ll be having the wedding) and she will be taking time off to attend our November wedding.

    As a teacher, I am telling you to leave it. If they can’t travel that is a shame, but teacher’s can take days off too. If they know ahead of time then they will be able to look at their calendars and see if they can. And if they can’t, then oh well.
