I would not keep the date that you have. What if he couldn’t get off that time? Just not have the wedding? That seems like the worst idea out of the three. As for your 3rd option about eloping….it’s a little confusing. Usually eloping is just the two of you with no guests or maybe only a couple of guests, so I am not sure what you mean by the Out of Town guests not being able to make it?

I would move the date to a date that you KNOW he can be off. That way you get to have your wedding and don’t have to wing anything!!

I think #2 is the best option – given that you you know of this other friend’s wedding, make it a point to not be in direct coflict with that day (I don’t see why you would have to have it on the same exact day as other friend). Just avoid the conflict and make sure he can get the time off!

@snp0207:  Yikes – best discuss it with the friend then (especially if you guys have mutual friends that might already be attending theirs)!

My vote would be to do an intimate ceremoney and elope now with just have your nearest and dearest– then have a full reception after he graduates where all the Out of Town people can make it too. This is very common for people with big families that live far apart– have a wedding at one spot, and a 2nd reception at the other.  My cousin did this because his wife’s family was all in Mexico and it would have been too expensive for all 100+ of them to travel.
