@Melp2017:  I had to replace members in my bridal party as well. Could you do a spring wedding on  Sunday or a Friday perhaps? Thet tend to be cheaper on those days. Everyone goes through wild times with weddings love. Maybe check into a venue tosee if they have a Friday or Sunday available?

wait wait wait.. The sister of the groom doesn’t know if she will be there because of her FI family reunion?? Seriously? WTH! How is that even an option??

I’m sorry you are having so much drama, I keep repeating my mom’s mantra in my head “it will all work out….it will all work out…it will all work out”

Um, your wedding is way more important than the family reunion-they can go to separate functions (I know couples that have “split” weddings, when they’ve had two on the same day.) Can you imagine people’s reaction at the reunion- “You’re HERE instead of at your brother’s wedding??”

Pick a date and book a venue and refuse to discuss it further.  Tell them that the venue said you can’t change the date again, even if it’s a lie.  I consulted a person or two who would have overseas travel arragements to make but otherwise, we just picked a date that seemed convenient for everyone and booked it.  If my own parents have a conflict, well I will be sad that they are not there if they can’t make it but I will still have a good time and I will get married on that date.  There is not a date on the calendar that will work for everyone.  Pick one that works for you and go with it.  I would suggest that if you’re going to change it again, you may want to book a little further out.  June is a big wedding month and if things are not booked yesterday, you’re not going to be able to make this happen.  Dithering about the date for much longer is going to really limit and eliminate your options.
