    Have you found a venue you like?  I would see when they have an opening (unless, of course, you’ve already done that, hence the two times you listed here).   I think either weekend would be great–after all, you’ll be getting married!  Even if it’s gross, people will be happy for you.

    We are getting married outside in July in DC.  It is going to be hot and probably super disgusting outside.  But that was our option unless we waited til January (hooray academic calendars!).

    I voted for mid-July only because my birthday is almost always Memorial Day weekend, and I wouldn’t want my anniversary & birthday to be the same time.  But other than that, I think Memorial Day would be a great time to get married!

    I voted for mid-July because holiday weekend weddings aren’t my favorite.  Also, I know I ended my school semester only 3 weeks before my wedding this past spring.  I thought it would be TONS of time to plan, but it didn’t feel like enough.  You might feel overwhelmed if your wedding is right after the end of the school year.  A couple of extra months to tie up the loose ends might be helpful.

    My wedding is the July 4 weekend, but if I’d had the option, I would definitely have picked memorial day.

    Either one works for me. It depends how far I’d be traveling. I’m in a wedding over labor day and I’m just so excited to be in the wedding that i don’t care i’m missing out on a ‘lake’ weekend

    I voted for mid-July because that way there’s no chance of anyone feeling resentful at having to give up their holiday weekend for your wedding.  If it’s just a weekend day in July, it seems like less of a big deal.  Not sure if that makes sense.

     If you have A LOT of stuff going on in July, though, I totally would go for Memorial Day.  Certainly understandable in that case and if people have other plans, oh well.

    I would be Ok with either.  But I picked Memorial Day because it might be easier for some guests to travel.  And I know some peole hate the heat.  Even if you have the ceremony and reception indoors, there is still likely outdoor stuff.  (Ie pictures, or just guests who sweat at the thought of sunshine -you know the type.)

    Is there a difference with either month in terms of raing or other weather.?  If July has better weather typically, I might feel better with "hot" but "safe".

    Also, I agree with Jessie516 about allowing enough time between the end of school and the wedding.  I’m always exhausted and mentally drained for at least 2 or 3 weeks after the end of a semester.

    I didn’t vote because I would be okay with either.
