what about the weekend after or the weekend before? since you haven’t set the 8/14 date with anyone yet right? or is that a special date you want to keep?

maybe it just seems easier to me as an outsider, but what about the weekend before or after?  We picked our wedding date based on the rates (summer vs winter) and when they could squeeze us in.  Nothing too romantical about the dates!

Oh no.  This is hard.  I don’t know that I’d be able to kick the other bride out either.  Is it really impossible to have it the weekend before or the weekend after?

August still counts as summer. Fall begins Sept 23 so your “dream fall wedding” can still happen.

Try another date. I wouldn’t try to push your FI’s step-father to cancel their date for you guys.

Working around school schedules is a pain–it’s one of the reasons why I ended up with a wedding in a month/season I’d never even considered (and on a Sunday to boot).  But since picking the date, I’ve grown more and more fond of it and wedding planning is always exciting, not matter when the date.  I’d say look at school schedules and figure out what other possible dates (and seasons) might work for you and imagine what they would look like in your head.  I bet you find something you’ll learn to love just as much.

Also, there’s nothing stopping you from wedding planning several months longer.  I’ve done a lot of my stuff way-early (again, largely because of school timing) and you really do get your pick of vendors and have so much more time to decide on things and get your ideas together.

Is there anyway to contact the other bride or even have your FI’s step-father explain the situation? Who knows – maybe she’s willing to switch weekends, especially since you have a pretty vaild reason for wanting the date. And it’s still a year out, it’s not like it’s only a few months away.

Can you pick another venue? Can you do it on Friday instead of Saturday?- I am assuming the 14th is a Saturday.

Second the Friday suggestion.

Also, does he go to school/teach all summer long?  I only ask because I’m a masters student and there’s two summer sessions — one during June and one during July.  Does he work through/take both?  Because maybe you could do it a little earlier in the summer…?

Also, isn’t there usually a break between spring and summer classes?  Maybe then?

Just throwing out ideas…

UM, I’m sorry but doesn’t family trump some random outside bride 10 times out of 10? Forget the other bride, if your FH’s stepfather is allowing you the option of keeping your date, KEEP IT!!! Why did he allow this bride to choose that date anyways? I wouldn’t worry about her, she’ll figure something out and you deserve the  date you chose!
