I hate to say it, but you really only have one option if you want to keep your friend. May 8.

I would go with the 8th. Having your wedding the same day as your friend’s is a major no-no.

Is your wedding during the day or in the evening? Would you consider doing a Sunday? Maybe you could keep your original venue assuming you are still willing to work with them. Maybe they will even give you an incredible deal considering they “dropped” you?

If Sunday is a definite no, I would go with the 8th. I do not think that a week in either direction will guarantee you better or worse weather. This past weekend was 70 here and next weekend is supposed to be in the 50s.

That, and the 22nd is one of the most popular dates in May this year… This stage in the game, your vendors could have issues. Have you checked with your photographer, DJ’s, etc…

What about a date in june, so you don’t overlap with your friend or have to worry about the cold. 

Also, regarding camping idea: did you check with all Out of Town guests to make sure they want to do that? I feel like providing at least the option to stay in a hotel would be polite.

I’d go with May 8th.  And I’d consider changing the camping plan.  Maybe instead you can rent a cabin to share?  That way you get the camping feel but you have heat just in case it is still cold.

Watch out!  May 8 is Mother’s Day and all of the florists we talked to said they don’t even do flowers for weddings on Mother’s Day weekend because they are so busy.  Just something to think about.  It was our original choice for a date before we found this out.  So I vote for the 22nd.  🙂
