@AmandaandJoshuaa: Is there any way to do a rush order on the dresses? Have they already been ordered? Could you just get some cute dresses from an apartment store? I see the dresses as being a fairly easy problem to be fixed.

Anyway, if you do the ceremony in April and the reception in June, I would suggest just going to a nice dinner afterward with family. You may just want to do a small family ceremony in April and a vow renewal style wedding/reception in June.

If you cannot afford to do the hotel twice, then just do it once. You could also get a cheaper hotel for the one of the dates.

Just a thought.

I just read your last post and I’m so sorry to hear what you’re going through.  If it were me, I would have the full wedding in April and do everything, ceremony and reception, and have the girls wear black dresses that they already own or get matching dresses from a department store.  I would want to have the one special day that is the “big” day.

That said, you could do the same thing by having the two dates like you’re planning.  Make the April date the “real” date with all the readings, speeches, whatever else is super traditional, and totally switch gears in June to make it all about the fun.  I’d plan the honeymoon for after the June wedding, too, so you’ll have something to look forward to in-between the April and June weddings.

What do you want? Do you just want to move everything up til April? What dresses were the BM’s going to wear?
