Well, sounds like early May is your window.  Check out the 2014 Farmer’s Almanac for your area, historical weather reports, and any other forecasts, to pick the best likelihood of good weather on a Friday, and just mark it on the calendar, and call it dinner.

May weddings are beautiful. Why not get an idea of what venues you like before making a decision? They may be able to give you an idea of which season is less expensive. Also, look at flowers. You have more gorgeous flower options in May than you would in October.

@MimiLovesHorror:  If you are planned months in advance, I don’t think it will be too bad.  Just be sure if you’re renting tuxes, you do it super, super early.  Though, I’m not a fan of rental tuxes – I bought mine vintage, and am only wearing it to our evening reception.  I have other plans for the day time ceremony.

Go for May! I just had this same problem! Wanted our anniversary date but it lands on a tuesday.. :/ So we vetoed that! We actually ended up with 4-4-14 beacause FI favorite number is 4 and it’s a friday. Maybe you could come  up with a nice May date. Not to summery, but still after april. 🙂

we’re not picking a date.  We’re picking a venue and then seeing what dates they have available.  It seems to make more sense to me.  There’s not a date that my wedding HAS to be so why not just find a venue you love and go from there.


(BTW, we are also 10 years dating in October 2014 and getting married in May 2014)

Are you really into a certain kind of theme or colour scheme? For example, if you like rich colours go with October, or if you like paler colours, go with May.

@MimiLovesHorror:  My most favourite months of the year are May and October! If October is too long to wait I think early May would be beautiful 🙂 or even September? I’m with you, I’m not a big fan of summer but love Autumn and Spring!

I would wait until October. We are getting married on our three year anniversary and it will be so special. Long engagement was nice too

I say go for May, with a Friday wedding you shouldn’t have much trouble finding a venue and vendors. 🙂 October is great but if you’re already feeling impatient, I don’t suggest waiting an extra six months!

And I don’t really understand why so many brides like to get married on their dating anniversary, does the most extensively planned date of your life really need extra specialness? My dating anniversary is in October, because that’s when we happened to meet. I’m getting married late next June, because that’s what happens to work best for everyone. So I’ll have two dates, in two completely different parts of the year, that happened kind of randomly, that I will always celebrate at least in some small way because they will always be special to me.
