I am new to “Weddingbee” and was hoping I could get some feedback from some fellow NY/NJ brides-to-be. I just found a great location for my wedding and received the list for the available dates. I am a little concerned since the 4 dates each seem to have their downfalls.
May 25th, 2013 (5/25/13) – Saturday of Memorial Day weekend. I am afraid it will make it more expensive for those traveling for the wedding. Also, I don’t want to inconveince anyone’s plans since it is a holiday weekend.
July 13th, 2013 (7/13/13)- The venue would be both in and out doors and I am concerned about the weather during this time of the year.
August 3rd, 2013 (8/3/13)- Also the same as above for July.
September 14th, 2013 (9/14/13 – The price increased substaintially from the above dates.
I would love to hear what you all think about the above dates. I know weather can always interfere with plans and it will be a great time either way.
Thank you in advance for any advice or recommendations you can give me

- Wedding: December 2010 - Savannah, GA
I’m not from NY or NJ, but August is the only month that doesn’t have a national holiday, so I’d go with that date.

You’ll have the best weather in May or September. I personally would prefer September but if the price is too high, I think the Saturday of Memorial Day weekend is fine.

i picked 8.3.
had i had the patience to wait a year this would have been our date. when i was little for some ODD reason i always said “im going to get married on august 3rd!” LOL. never knowing when 8-3 would be on a weekend or when id have a man, that was just what i wanted.

Wow, thank you all for your quick responses!! Originally, I was thinking 7/13/13, since I kinda liked the #’s. My favorite # is 7, so of course in my mind I thought it was a sign LOL! However, August is both of our birthday months…so maybe that could also be a positive date as well. Either way I will be taking a risk with the weather. The venue has a magnificent outdoor party space so I would be disappointed if my guests could not utilze that area. At some point I just have to just try and “go with the flow” although that is certainly not my personality 😉
