    What about a date in late October? I don’t know if that is an option for you. You could also talk with some of your family members and see what they think about having 3 weddings in 3 months. Personally, I wouldn’t mind at all if I was one of your family members but it wouldn’t hurt to ask around!

    Would it be too much for you to move it up to June or July?

    I absolutely know how frustrating it can be! If you really want to throw your daughter a birthday party then maybe pushing the wedding back to the Spring would be a good idea. It’s only a couple months and it will give you more time to get things together and plan! 

    Good luck with everything and try not to stress too much!

    @TequilaSunrise:  Oh I agree, moving the wedding up would be terribly stressful! I hope thats not what you thought I meant. I definitely was thinking next Spring (2013)!

    Trust me, I understand your plight.  We too had to push our date back due to many interfering circumstances, and now, we are in a deadlock of trying to find a new date before 2013!!!  It is super stressful, and definitely emotionally trying.  To me, it sound slike since you want nice enough weather for an indoor/outdoor situation, October or Early Spring could work, however, early spring could run the risk of snow still.  You said your daughter’s 5th birthday is at the end of Sept, and I agree with you, that would definitely be a lot, trying to throw a huge bday party amidst your cousins wedding, and then your very own.  Fall weddings are BEAUTIFUL, though, and if you have your heart set on it, I say just go for it.  The people who matter most will make it work.  However, if you don’t mind waiting until spring, that might be better, just to give yourself more time to enjoy the process.  However, like you said, venues might be booked up around that time, so I say, investigate!  Do your research!  Se which vendors are available when, make a chart or calendar of availability, and pick the date that all of your vendors are available on, and go with that! 🙂  That’s what we finally had to do.  STILL haven’t set a new date, but inching our way there.  BEST of luck!!!

    @TequilaSunrise:  Exactly!! 🙂 Thats what we are doing. I wanted a fall wedding but it didn’t work for some of my family members so we are putting off a few months and having a January wedding. It’s not worth stressing too much over it. You will have more time to plan and save and enjoy it all!
