- Wedding: October 2011
OK Bees…here’s my dilemma. I’ve been engaged now for over a month and groomie and I are trying to nail down our venue really soon so we can get to planning everything else.
Originally, I wanted a late Spring wedding (aka June)
Then we decided a Fall wedding would be better (aka October)
Now I am just so confused! Both times have their pros and cons and I just can’t figure out what I want.
Both Fiance and I are graduating from college in May so at this point, neither of us know exactly where we’ll have jobs or really when those will start.
Here are the pros and cons of each date…PLEASE offer your opinions to help us decide!
June Wedding Pros:
-Beautiful weather and flowers
-We would probably be getting married on my parent’s anniversary
-It’s likely that neither of us would have started a job yet so we wouldn’t be nailed down to anything preventing us from honeymooning
June Wedding Cons:
-It’s in like 5 1/2 months (is that long enough to plan a wedding?!)
-Neither of us will have a substantial amount of money saved up to take a honeymoon with or start payments on any type of apartment lease
-I’m still in a rental lease until July 30
October Wedding Pros:
-Beautiful weather (maybe?)
-We will probably both be at jobs at this point and may have some cash flow going to take a honeymoon and pay for housing
October Wedding Cons:
-It’s in 9 months (do I want to wait that long?!)
-We might both be tied into jobs that will prevent us from taking much time off to take a honeymoon and what not
-We might have jobs in a different city from where our wedding is which would make last minute plans and things difficult and we’d have to travel home for the wedding
I’m sure there are lots of other pros and cons I can’t think of right now…so if you would please call them to my attention that would be great.
Thanks for your input!
