Is it possible to move the party up toward the beginning of September.  Most of the first couple of games of the football season are non-conference and not usually as important.  Or what about the Sunday of Labor Day weekend?  Since most people wouldn’t have to work on Monday, it could be an option.

I understand the scheduling around football games.  My FI’s team has a bye our wedding weekend and mine will more than likely play an early game and I can keep up with the score on my phone!  My coworkers actually have a bet on whether or not I will worry about the game on the wedding day!

Hate to say it but engagement parties aren’t very important to most people, so I could definitely see this happening. If it is such a stressor, why even have one?

My family is die hard about football too, and I could care less about it. I got married 10/24 and told them to suck it if it conflicted with anything due to freaking football. There wasn’t a home game that weekend, and they have a DVR to record anything they missed, so I didn’t have any sympathy.

They could easily sell their tickets if they have a home game that weekend, and I don’t think it would kill someone to miss one game to come to your party. But then again, I also do not get the craze about sports anyway

@Mrs_Amanda:  I was actually going to suggest having the games on TV’s so that those that want to enjoy the games can.  I actually for our wedding was going to go as far as getting a projector and a computer and play the game at our wedding reception, but like I said earlier it will probably be a morning game.  It’s family weekend at my alma mater that weekend.
