I’m having a problem with the date and not because it means its all final.  I’m having problems because everybody else’s events are getting my way.  I it moves farther out.  It sucks!!!!  Just accomplish one thing and you won’t feel so overwhelmed.  Let the hall and your wedding venue help pick out your date.

Between school starting (many of our friends are profs and/or have children in school, and all have to come from out of town) and our venue we had one date to work with. I’d find your venue, think about whatever limitations you can avoid that will allow most friends and family to come, and pick a date. You’ll never be able to avoid all other events, or have all your friends there – you can’t work around everyone’s schedule. You just have to go for it.

I too am in the same boat… Mostly because of finances and family schedules.

I dont want to book it to far out, or to soon, so at this point, it’s just easiest to not commit to any date…lol

Setting the date is always one of the most difficult tasks! It means it’s final and you’re putting a ton of deposits down to hold that date. If one thing doesn’t work out, it gets stressful!

My advice is to just take one thing at a time. There may be vendors who can’t accommodate the date once you choose it, but there will be vendors out there who will. Everything will work out…just put one foot in front of the other and take things as they come.

Setting the date and signing the contract for the venue were definitely the things that made me have a teensy panic attack – not about marrying him, but just the finality of the whole wedding process starting and knowing that I’ll be writing many, many, many checks in the months to come!

That said, I knew I wanted Memorial Day Weekend for my wedding date (Sunday) and I booked everything almost 18 months in advance because I know what I want and I’ll get what I want!  🙂
