We did this a few times and nobody thought anything was wrong besides needing to change for financial or venue reasons.

I seriously wouldn’t worry about this.  You’re always going to have that ONE person who thinks something is off, but the majority of people will know it was a legitimate reason.  Good luck!

Honestly, I would keep looking for venues. I have never really said this here, and always try to spin it positively, but personally I have HATED my 22 month engagement. If you can, I’d avoid it!!

Can you ask your venues for a list of dates still available? Maybe there is one in early August that would work?

@KatNYC2011: Have you considered a restaurant reception? Sometimes they have private rooms, and the place we’re having ours even has room for a dance floor and a DJ, plus a separate bar for the wedding.

Don’t get too stressed out. If you absolutely can’t find a place, I wouldn’t worry too much about changing the date. Especially don’t worry about what other people say/think. In the end, you have to do what’s best for you, even if it means a long engagement. That’s why ours is long, I would just avoid it if you can 🙂

Don’t get too stressed out about it!  We had to look far and long to find ours!  Beware about the long engagement, you’ll lose your mind!

@KatNYC2011: Oh I missed the part about an outdoor affair 🙂 Have you looked at any golf courses? (Sorry if I am bombarding you with ideas, or if I am asking things you’ve already looked at!!)

Any reasonable person will understand that planning is still up in the air until you find a venue and sign a contract.  All you have to say is, “We had our heart set on an outdoor venue in Maine, and it’s all booked for the summer of 2011, so we moved our wedding to XYZ.  Isn’t it amazing how things book so fast!”  And then your listener will probably tell you about her daughter/friend/neighbor’s story about the dj or photographer she loved who was booked two years solid in advance.  It’s no problem, but i’d agree you might want to keep looking, since less well known sites may have more availability.  Plus, it could still rain and you might feel bad putting off your wedding for  a year and not being able to get an outdoor ceremony.

You hit the nail on the head–it doesn’t matter what people think.  And I bet that only a handful of people would question the choice to move the wedding.  Go with the date that feels right!
