I have had to move my wedding date twice (well documented long story) due to legal issues my Fiance was having but now 102 days to go and we are getting married. So a few weeks ago I sent out my STD so ppl can start making travel arrangements.
I have had some interesting responses.
1 friend called (interestingly my ex’s new wife’s ex who I am good friends with) wanted to let me know that was the weekend of the Arkansas Derby. I told him I would miss him and his wife terribly but no not moving it.
One of my BFF asked if we could move it because she has a conference to attend the week after and she would be tired for the conference. I love her and told her to suck it up haha
then my Dad said he really does not like weddings and he wants to come to visit us when we could show him around and have time for him and not when the day would be about me – ummm told him that we were throwing a great shindig and he was more than welcome to come. Still not sure. My mom says she is coming with or without him
I am chuckling at these but kind of bewildered too – who has ever heard of asking someone else to move the wedding date for stuff like this? 🙂

Dates are seriously one of the most annoying parts of wedding planning, IMO.
We had to avoid so many dates to begin with (immediate family conflicts) that I honestly just LOL’d at anyone else asking. I had someone (a not-so-close friend) tell me it was she and her boyfriend’s anniversary week. Like, the Wednesday before. Okay? And asked if we could move it back a week… No. Sorry. Well, sorry I’m not sorry. You don’t have to come.

Future Mother-In-Law asked out of the blue for us to change the wedding to May, no idea why but it’s not happening.
A guest made a stink about our date because it falls on a Sunday and it’s busy time for them at work and they would have to be up early on the Monday. Oh well.
Gotta love when people think the world revolves around them!

We are getting married the day of our 9 year anniversary, by the time we told our families we’d already booked our venue. We told everyone on New Years and Out of Town family told us to move it a couple of weeks later so they cold come and stay for Cchristmas, I admit they have a good point but we picked that date cause it’s important not just cause there was an available place.

The caterer wanted us to reconsider the date because it was hunting opener.

My sis wanted to vacation out here um, ok yeah. My bff only had 9 people go to her destination wedding because it was on her 15 year anniversary with her hubby and it fell on a tuesday. No one could get time off work,. Not even her parents.

I was at a friends wedding and her Mother-In-Law came up to me before the dinner to congratulate me on my recent engagement. She asked when we were planning on getting married and I told her the two dates we were thinking of. She proceeds to exclaim that we “can’t” have it on the first date I mentioned as her son (my friend’s DH) and my friend had to attend one of their relative’s wedding that same day. I was so shocked I didn’t say anything. `
Sorry, when did she become entitled to an opinion?

Wow some of these seriously made me laugh, I’m sorry you girls had to deal with that! If someone asked me to move my date because it was the same week as their anniversary I think my jaw would just be hanging open, like what the hell, people…that is insane. Luckily nothing like this happened to us!

Haha, wow. Not really strange like those, but I was asked to move my original date because “Mother’s Day is the day after”. Now, I understand that maybe some people don’t want to attend Mother Day’s brunch hungover and tired, but to make it a big deal? I didn’t really get it…but, I moved my date a week up anyway.
I also couldn’t schedule my wedding during fantasty football or hunting seasons, but that was more for MY own sanity than anything else. I’m sure Fiance would’ve dealt with it…barely.

These are amusing! I get told the date I picked is crazy because its known to be the hottest day in the year. Yeah I get that its going to suck but my life revolves around our dairy farm. Thats the best time for us to honeymoon so suck it up princesses and grab a cold drink!

@Wigglewagon: Hahaha… that sounds like something my family would have said… but I made sure not to interfer with hunting season!

@auggiefrog:Haha, ditto! I planned around it so I wouldn’t be spending my anniversaries alone or with a pouting husband. Lol. Putting our wedding on Opener (capitalized because it’s like a holiday here) would have me blacklisted with his family.

We were asked to move our wedding date because it was too soon after the holidays and everyone will be broke…they are not even Out of Town guest, nor paying for the wedding so I don’t understand lol. Another family member asked us to change our date because she lives in NY and the airports might be snowed in. We didn’t change the date for either person. Just keep what we wanted, since after all, it is our day 🙂
