Wedding definately trumps graduation. Do it in August. His parents can get two plane tickets or miss graduation. Neither is the end of the world and both are better than all your family having to miss school in October. And do you really want to have to celebrate wedding and graduation at the same time? I’d want to divide them up! You’ll have enough to be thinking about for either of those events without combinging them!

Yes, no one tells you that the date decision is one of the most stressful parts! I say do it in August. The wedding is definitely more important than the graduation even though you both want the there for the graduation too. Weddings and graduations are already stressful enough without combining them. No need to add more.

I know graduations are important, but honestly not as important as a wedding. You will be too stressdd frkm wedding stuff to enjoy your graduation ceremony if you do them together. I say have wedding in August and enjoy everyone being there. You’ll be much happier and less stressed if you do this when everyone can be there.

This might be crazy question but why not do the wedding in June after graduation?  It would give you time to work on the wedding plans and give enough time between major events that graduation isn’t over shadowed by the wedding.  Just a suggestion

Again, why do his parents need to attend his graduation? Why can’t he just tell his parents it’s fine if they don’t attend? After all if it’s like my graduation he’ll be up on the podium for about 10 seconds. August still sounds best to me.
