Sometimes you just can’t win.  I think the last weekend of April might be fine.  Have you talked to her about it?  Sometimes it’s good to have a distraction from grief.  She will probably have sad/nostalgic moments about he late husband no matter when you have your wedding.

What’s wrong with Mother’s day? Are you having a child free wedding? A day without kids might double as a great gift to all the Moms!

Having an etire month to grieve over a death is a bit extreme. Life, at some point must go on for those left behind.

@happyface:  yeah, but on the upside – it’s Cinco de Mayo! already a good day for celebrating, hahah.  plus it will actually be 5/5/13.   I’m getting married in 2013 as well and also thought that 2013 doesn’t have quite the ring to it that 2010/11/12 had – bah well! 

Sounds like your least troublesome option – good luck!!!

What about doing it on the 10th or 11th? It’s the same week, just Friday or Saturday.

hmm, actually – depending on the size of your wedding, perhaps the venue would do a Saturday brunch buffet on your request? Im sure if you were filling up the place they would be delighted to oblige – that is unless, they have a special saturday thing that they always do. but possibly worth an ask!!

@carnivaltheme:  Precisely what I was thinking. There’s no harm in asking!

Perhaps June 1st? it is a saturday and its not really far along in June. It is close to your May date and not summer yet. I am a bit bias towards the day I admit lol. I couldnt do spring for a few reasons so June 1st seems to work well

The Monterey is a nice enough venue… (one of many in Ottawa)

BUT to be really honest… the Brunch Buffet at the Monterey is just so-so.

Personally, I wouldn’t be planning my whole Wedding just around this “key” element
