I just got engaged last week! Then Hurricane Sandy came to town, =(. Most of our family and friends lost everything! We wanted our wedding to be October 2013, but we figure now that will be too soon for most people to recover. I want a formal, elegant, black and silver theme wedding. I always wanted an October wedding but don’t want to wait two years for my wedding. Also, can you use the colors black and silver in May? I’m torn between May 2014 or October 2014. Any suggestions? Thanks so much!

Congratulations on your engagement!! 🙂
I say May 2014, but I’m biased, since I’m getting married on May 15th. 😉 Black and silver can be used in any month!!

Oct. 2013 gives people a full year to recover. I think that’s ok. It will give them something happy to look forward to and to work toward.
ETA: Sorry, I realize you’re asking between May and Oct 2014. But I still think you can do Oct. 2013. If that doesn’t feel right, then go for May. I live in an area that was also devastated by the storm — so I’m not making light of the damage, I just really think Oct. 2013 would be just fine.

If you really want October 2013, I would encourage you – I think it is enough time, and personally, I love not having a super long engagement.
May or October really is personal preference. Both are busy times of the year. IF you do May, do it earlier in May before all the graduations hit.

Thanks girls!! After a long night of discussing, we figured October 2014. I’m not too happy about having such a long engagement but it will help us with paying for the wedding. Also, speaking with his family, most of them lost their houses, and everything in it (obviously!). I really appreciate all your thoughts. Thanks!!!

I say do whatever colors you want in any season. It is your wedding and you can do what you want!!!
