    @Solstice:  My graduation this year is May 19th (undergrad). It seems like I finish school earlier than my peers each spring, but it might be because we have a short break between the end of finals and graduation, and I always got home as soon as finals finished. The law school graduation is the same date.

    I chose June 1 just to give you as much time as possible to plan the wedding.

    I don’t know anyone who got married in June, personally, so I don’t think you need to worry there. Do you have a lot of guests coming from out of town? I’d say 80% of ours will be from other states, so if we could have our wedding on a three day weekend, it would be great. People wouldn’t have to ask off an extra day of work then. If most of yours are local, I’d say go with the one you want in May. My friend graduating from vet school finishes up on May 13th, so I think usually the semesters end around that time. The 18th sounds like your best bet.

    Most law and med schools with traditional schedules will wrap up mid-late May so June 1st would be good to maximize turnout. I personally don’t like when people choose to marry on Memorial Day and Labor Day weekends, especially on a Saturday (I would prefer Friday or Sunday versus mid-long weekend) because I like to BBQ and go away those weekends…

    May vs. June will not make a difference in terms of pricing. Both May and June are in the “high season” of weddings. Sounds like June 1 is great for your circumstances!

    Peak wedding season starts in May and goes though October so you will be paying the same price with either date. You only get discounts at venues if you are during the “off season”.

    Most schools get out mid May. With exams & such I would do whatever possible to see when your bridal party will be out of school. Most schools post their academic calendars a couple years in advance just google “(school) academic calendar 2013”.

    I got married on Memorial Day so I’m definitely in favor of it.

    @mags2233:  I’ve never heard this before! My parents got married in May (about to celebrate their 29th anniversary) and my grandparents got married in May and were married till their deaths!

     

    And OP do either of the dates have special meaning to you? And I’m pretty sure you pay the same price from May to June due to April-I forget the month but includes June is considered Wedding Season thus the prices are raised.
