    Yes, it's inconsiderate if guests may have to pay more for travel costs. : (0 votes)
    No, your guests have enough time to arrange their travel to get a good deal. : (16 votes)

    I voted no. There’s always going to be something going on and it sounds like you’re very happy with the original date and that other dates are limited. I highly doubt that anyone will notice the higher fares/tariffs if indeed they do get hiked up (and they may not), people who want to be there will be there regardless.  If you’re still concerned I suggest checking that the other dates are still available, you might find that the decision has been made for you if theyre all booked up.

      Plus, if you get a block of rooms at a hotel, they may have to lock in a certain rate for you. That’s what we were told when we set them up for our wedding. No matter what was going on, as long as people booked by a certain date, they would be guaranteed that rate.

    Do not change it! It sounds like you are very planned and are going to give them plenty of notice so they can make all the proper accomodations. If they wait til the last minute and have to pay alot, that is their fauly, not yours. 🙂

    It’s going to be tempting to make changes as you go along and discover conflicts and problems, but you really just have to stick to your original plan and blow right through them. As LadyArtichoke said, there will always be something. If you bob and weave to avoid conflicts, you’ll end up all over the place, and this is all stressfull enough!

    I say hold your date. If it’s too expensive, they won’t come, which is sad, but there will always be people who can’t make it, no matter when it is. 

    Good luck!

    I’ll tell you what, we are Californians and were married at a fairly popular location as well on Labor Day Weekend, and it all worked out okay.  I think what’s important for you if you’re concerned is looking into hotels that you can reserve “blocks” at a special wedding rate for your guests, so that you can try to cut as much “cost” for them as possible as they travel to your wedding.  I’m definitely voting “no!”
