Okay, I have succesfully changed my date to Nov. 24 2012 (our 5 year anniversary)from April 28 2012. Now my relatives are expressing different problems to me such as:
“Thanksgiving is 2 days before your wedding, are you sure you want it that date?
“Black Friday is the day before, are you sure you want that date?”
“November 24th does not seem like fall because it will be so close to Dec. so why have a fall theme?”
“What if it snows on your wedding day, arent you worried? Why are you still going to have a fall theme, if it will be snowing?”
So NOW they are having me worry about these things….Ugh I never seem to win :/
How do I work these things out?!

None of those things are worth worrying about. Don’t let ’em stress you!

If the November date means more to you then I wouldn’t worry about all those other things people are saying. People that truly love and support you guys and who really want to share in your special day will join you, even though it’s the day before Black Friday and is so close to Thanksgiving. So what? At the end of the day, you have to do what makes you happy – you’re the one who lives with the aftermath, not them.

Personally, I feel like Thanksgiving is the epitome of fall!
Don’t listen to them!

Ohhh these are all silly reasons. Stick with your date! It sounds like a good one 🙂 Plus, as it’s your anniversary, it’ll mean all that much more.

Thanks for the help ladies. I feel like my family is nit picking at everything! Because I am no longer going with the Spring date anymore. GRR

The only thing I would prepare myself for is family/friends traveling around that time… I would naturally expect a more intimate wedding as opposed to more oot guests and such.
I LOVE that you chose a significant date! I would have done that BUT there is NO way we could’ve waited till this Oct for our anniversay date.
You stick with your date and let your family do what they do and you just ignore them…. believe me.. you can’t please them all and someone will ALWAYS have something to say about something you’ve decided… thankfully it’s not THEIR wedding! 😉

No date is perfect for all of your guests. And they’ll always complain about something. Just do whatever makes you happy!

Oh goodness, now they’re just nitpicking. Do what makes you happy, I agree!

Just pick a date a stick to it, there will always be some naysayers trying to confuse you

My BFF got married on Nov 22, and it was fine. It was cold, but her colors were pink and purple! It was a great wedding and noone cared it was so close to Tgiving. i think you will be fine. Ignore the nay sayers. Good luck!
