@purple_orchid:  I would contact everyone ASAP and see if they have made concrete travel plans yet. I would def. take the money if there were no real attachments and vendors can move.

@purple_orchid:  I would check with your family first to see if they’ve already booked flights and hotels. If they have not, take the money LOL

I would move the date, that’s a good amount of money and I can’t imagine that many people booked flights 9 months ahead of time and hotels should be able to acoomodate the changes.

@purple_orchid:  I would take the money. If your date is correct it is far enough out that people should be able to change their flights/hotel. That is just me though.

Check with everyone, and if no one has booked, definitely take it!

I agree with PP about checkin with people to see if they have booked their travel. Fees to change airfare can be costly and it would be inconsiderate to cause your guests to have the extra expense.  But if it doesn”t inconvenience anyone, I would change the date and accept the cash!

Move the date and use the 3 grand to pay the fees for moving any airline tickets around. I doubt there will be that many already booked.

I’d move the date! Can you get a new date just a day or a week from the old one?  Or would you have to move it further out??

Move the date, the family members have enough time to change dates on flights.

I think that’s its far enough out that people probably haven’t booked travel yet. As long as you haven’t had anything printed with the date, I’d take the money for sure

Definitely double check all of your vendors first though

Change the date, but make sure you get the money upfront immediately.

That would be a very tempting offer for me.  I’d see if anybody has made plans yet, and if it’s not major I’d move the date.  I have a September wedding too and nobody on my guest list has booked anything yet.

@Bracelet00:  +1.  Use the money to cover the change/transfer fees for those who have already booked travel arrangements.
