Do you think getting married the weekend after New Years Eve is bad? My mother keeps telling me its a bad idea, but everything is booked and ready to go! I am sick of people putting down my wedding and the wedding date. I feel as though the people that should care about me most are the most unsupportive. In all honesty, I think weddings are overrated. I wish we just eloped and were married. All the stress, time, and heart ache I have put in thus far has made me go from “miss happy” to a a nagging woman. I am so ashamed of my feeling and reactions. Has anyone else felt this way during the planning process?

is it too late to elope for you?

I’m sorry you’re annoyed. I think a lot of brides wish they’d eloped at some point in the planning. I know I’ve been wishing that for months. As for your mother, she’ll get over it. Since everything is booked and ready to go, stop stressing! It will all be fine. I’ve found that I need to deflect people when they start nagging about the wedding, though. “Absolutely nothing new since the last time you asked” has become my constant refrain…

I don’t think the weekend after new years eve is bad at all! no matter what date you pick, if someone wants to find something wrong with it, they can! tell your mom if she doesn’t like the date, then SHE doesn’t have to get married on that date.

I don’t see why that’s a bad weekend? Everyone should be in high spirits since it’s a new year. Sorry that your family isn’t being as supportive as you’d like, though. As for eloping, I wanted to after 1 month of being engaged ’cause we couldn’t find a venue. Anyway, it’s gone away now and now I am enjoying the wedding planning much better.

you can never ever please everyone when trying to organize a group of people in the one spot at the same time so dont even try
pick your date and stick to it because as soon as you change it, that wont be good enough for someone else
btw, the week after new years sounds good to me!

I am not following why your mother thinks that date is a bad idea. I would slightly see her point if you were getting married on New Years Eve, but not the weekend after. Do not worry about inconveniencing your guests. Everyone that is important and cares about you will make it work regardless. Let is slid off your back and think happy thoughts.

I don’t think its a bad idea at all! It’s not like you’re getting married on New Years Eve.
I’m trying to see why your mother thinks its a bad idea. Hmm does she think it’s just too close after the holidays where people are just trying to get settled again after the go-go-go of the holiday season?
Regardless, the people who love you & support you will be there no matter what weekend you choose to have your wedding. Keep your head up! Oh and I bet more than 1/2 the brides out there at one point or another thought about eloping- I think about it on a daily basis (depending on my week lol).

What a great way to start of the New Year. Everyone will still be in a festive mood and ready to celebrate. There is nothing wrong with that date!

I think it’s a great way to get everyone together: a wedding and the new year. Not everyone will come, but that’s always the case. Good luck!

I don’t think the weekend after New Year’s is a bad weekend either. My mom tried and tried to get me to change my date (only to make it sooner) and I just put my foot down. It’s YOUR day. If this is the date you want, KEEP IT! Not to mention you have money down, etc.

I think the weekend is completely fine! We’ve had some complaining with things we’ve decided as well, but we’ve stuck to our guns and tried to keep in mind that if they have a problem with it, then it’s their problem and their loss, not ours!
