    I really like the date of 9-10-11. But I really like numbers.

    Oops I voted for Nov. thinking since the Sept one was a Sat., so was the Nov. one. I think November would be better if youre concerned about weather and I think it would be better on a Saturday. Does it have to be one of those 2 because of numbers?

    I kinda like the Sept. date because even though itll be hot, isnt Arizona heat dry? PLus, you’re not having it in the middle of the day, it would be late afternoon/evening. Just make sure you provide fans and drinks! Are there anymore options? Whatre you leaning towards?

    Hmm..this is a tough one.  I think it is a plus that the November date falls on Veteran’s Day because that makes a Friday night wedding more like a Saturday night one (i.e. most people will have work off, so they can travel Thursday night).  My concern about September is that even if you start the ceremony at 5, it is still going to be hot!  Also, you will still be on the tail end of the monsoons.  You don’t want to get sweated out or rained out. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Unless its not available, I wouldnt think there would be a problem for you to change it. I mean, youre using the same venue, youre just switching dates. Why dont you call the venue and see if its even available and how you go about changing it, just so you know if that date is even an option before you spend time going trying to decide which one.

    Personally I think 9-10-11 would be best. As Friday weddings are harder to pull off and won’t last as long as people will be tired, especially if your family and friend have labor jobs. I also think it would be best because of Veterans day. My dad is a veteran and we always go out to eat to celebrate Veterans Day. I highly doubt that my family is the only one who observes Veterans Day.

    If the Friday is a Veteran’s Day, doesn’t that make it easier for guests to get there, since many of them will have the day off anyway?

    This is easy – 09-10-11 – it’s my 30th birthday that day!!

    Aside from the fact September 10th is the greatest day, people prefer going to weddings on a Satruday, especially when they need to take time off of work to travel.
