    I think that if you both really like May then go for the May 3rd option. I think the 24th of May might end in your birthday being over shadowed by wedding stress/sorting out the last minute details. And as for September or October, they sound great but it seems that May has more sentimental value to you and your SO. Good luck choosing a date and enjoy planning πŸ™‚

    And also, if you go with May 3rd then you can enjoy your birthdays as a married couple πŸ˜€

    @sunshinewish15:  “dates are limited due to some family member’s birthdays”

    Why? As long as your wedding isn’t on an immediate family member’s birthday I don’t think it’s a problem.

    I think choosing May is romantic for the reasons you’ve listed.

    BUT May can be a pretty busy month… I take it you guys celebrate Mother’s Day same time as Canada & the USA (2nd Sunday in May)

    Do you have any other significant holidays in May

    In Canada we have Victoria Day Weekend… marks the Birthday of Queen Victoria on May 24th… but celebrated the 3rd Monday in May

    And in the USA they have Memorial Day Weekend… for their Vets which they celebrate the last Monday in May

    In both cases, these are long weekends in our respective countries… and the official kick-off for the most part for our “Summertime”

    — — —

    My first marriage… we had one season that was very busy for us as a family.  With many significant dates all close together (although as the years went on we didn’t celebrate them all)… Day we met – Day we started dating – Day we got engaged – Day we married – His Birthday – My Parent’s Anniversary – and a couple of Family Birthdays too… throw in 2 Stat Holidays… and it made for a very busy 6 weeks or so.  Fun.  BUT busy… and kind of expensive too because the majority of the family stuff “had to be marked”… not ignored.

    Lol, this time round, I haven’t done much better.

    Mr TTR and I mark in a relatively short time frame… Day we started dating – His Birthday – Christmas – New Years – Our Wedding Anniversary – Valentines – and My Birthday (span of about 11 weeks)

    Lol, I guess you could say, I just like celebrating things… the more the merrier.  Perhaps you are the same way ???

    I vote for the 3rd…but I am slightly biased since my wedding is on the 2nd and my bday on the 26th!  LOL  Also, early may has slightly better prices since it is not quite considered busy “Wedding season” yet πŸ™‚
