Hi Bees! I was just wondering if there are any other of you guys getting married on June 17th? It is a Sunday so I know there won’t be as many people getting married then as then 16th or 23rd, but I thought I would throw it out there!
Our two favorite venues were already booked for the 16th by the time we got engaged in August 2011 and that is pretty much the only weekend in June that will work for us, so Sunday the 17th it is! What influenced you to choose a Sunday date over a Saturday?

@centralcoastbride: I’m a June 17, 2012 bride too! We’re getting married on a Sunday because we’re both observant Jews and so we can’t get married on the Sabbath (Friday evening to Saturday evening).
Good luck with all your wedding planning!

I’m getting married June 17th…my fiance is getting his master’s dregree so we had to do it during one of his quarterly breaks AND his brother and brother’s family live out of the country and will only be back in the U.S. during June so we had to do it during his break in June which left us with one weekend and in September of 2011 when we were looking at venues almost every venue already had June 16th booked. Not thrilled about having to do a sunday wedding because it means a shorter honeymoon trip, it’s on a day of worship, and I feel like alot of guests are going to peace out early to go to work the next morning but maybe not since most of our guests are out of town and would have to take off friday if it were a friday wedding. Oh well, what can you do?
