I haven’t experienced this myself, so I don’t have much advice about all the stuff going on. BUT my sister had a winter wedding and it was soooo beautiful. The pictures turned out amazing. You might want to consider it πŸ™‚

Hmm.. you could always think about it as “embracing snow” instead of “risking snow”. Honestly though, I think that people who want to be at your wedding will find their way, rain or shine!

  • Wedding: July 2009

omg, yes.  My husband was applying for med school, so we had the possibility of having to move anywhere in the country or stay.  We were in Boston, the wedding was in St. Louis.  It happened he ended up at Wash U in St Louis.  But we had to move out June 30, drive a UHaul to St. Louis, get set up, finish final wedding set up, have wedding, honeymoon, start med school.  Luckily we picked a dated that gave us enough time to do all that. 

July in St. Louis was not my top choice for a wedding day.  I was worried my in laws from Maine would be dying in 100 degree weather, but it was the coolest weekend of the summer.  It worked out perfect weather wise, which was amazing.  But it was a balencing act for sure.

  • Wedding: June 2009

When we got married this summer, we didn’t know that we were going to be moving until closer to the date of the wedding.  That being said, it actually worked out pretty well to have it as sort of a wrap up and getting to see all of our friends before we moved.  We did however have to postpone a honeymoon due to moving and the money situation but having it later doesn’t make it any less fun, it is pretty much just a vacation after all.

My Fiance is graduating in April this year. He’s going to grad school full time until then. For us to have the wedding in 2009 would have conflicted with his school schedule and we may not have been able to go on a honeymoon right away. Also, my mom is a bus driver and works weekends until summer. So for us, it made sense to have the wedding in the summer of 10.

I think “embracing the snow” sounds like your best bet πŸ™‚ I always dreamt of an autumn wedding bc it’s when our city looks its best, but in the end we are having an early summer wedding in a totally different location! It feels so natural to be doing it this way now and I think it’s good to give yourselves lots of time around these events. It’s hard enough having Xmas around the corner for us let alone all the other stuff you’ve got on your plate πŸ™‚
