I apologize if this has been said already, but do not let this be a new precendent of you caving to the whims of other people’s schedules. You’ve said you already changed the date, so what is done is done, but I sincerely caution you from making this the norm.

From now on, if you really want something, stick to your guns. This is YOUR day and unfortunately some people forget how much time and effort you put into it. Of course, don’t be “selfish”, but there is a fine line between “accomodating” and “push-over.”

Best of luck to you…and don’t let anyone ruin your excitement just because this is your second wedding. The love you share with your fiance is worth celebrating!

While I think she was reaching to ask you to change the date, it sounds like she was coming anyway. You should have said things were set in stone and leave them as is. Instead you ask other family members for their opinion then agreed to change the date, so I think it’s going to cause much more drama now. I think you are kind of more to blame then her, becaue you ultimately in charge of your choices and should have just turned her down.

Do what you want.  What kind of week long break do they get in the fall?  We don’t do that in Ohio.  sounds fishy on her part.  do what you want, and be happy!

no I wouldn’t change the date. It’s Kindergarten, the kid won’t die if he misses an extra day or two…
