We need to keep the May 2011 board going 🙂 As we get closer, I totally log onto Weddingbee and go straight to the May 2011 section. I love that we are all a tight knit group and I love how we are sharing all of our ideas. In 2 months we will all be sharing our wedding pictures, can you believe it!!!!! Just curious ladies, why did you choose May to get married? We chose it because in California, May always had beautiful weather.

The weather. It might be hot, but at least it shouldn’t rain! *knocks on wood*
I chose late May because the semester will be over, so it won’t interfere with my friends and relatives who are in school.

My Fiance is in the military so May 7th was the only reasonable date we could come up with, it’s not working out very well now since he’s going to be doing a ton of flying from NY to TX and vice versa =/ but we can’t change it now and since we postponed our wedding once already (originally Oct. 23, 2009) I just want to get it over with!

We chose late may because it is close to summer. My parents were married in may. And my birthday is in may. May just seemed like a good month. As for the weather i hope it’s nice here but, it could be raining. Fingers crossed it is sunny.

We choose May because we wanted a spring wedding with nice weather (fingers crossed for no rain*). I can’t believe how fast the days are flying by now!!

I always wanted to be a May bride. However, I also considered getting married in the fall. It just so happened that when my Fiance proposed, May 2011 worked better than waiting until Fall 2011. Plus, the weather here is GORGEOUS in May!!

All of my friends have gotten married in the fall so I wanted to switch it up, I wanted Peonies, April/May are peak wedding months in FL because its not super hot/rainy/hurricane season yet. I then had to avoid multiple graduations and mothers day. I also avoided Memorial Day weekend because we’re getting married on the beach and it would be crazy crowded that weekend.

We found our Venue May 1, 2010 and thought, hmm why don’t we just do it one year from now?

We’re getting so close girls! Yesterday was 2 months until for us!
We chose to get married in May because we wanted to get married this year. May 14th was THE ONLY weekend in 2011 when we could get married! Not joking.
I’m in nursing school, so I’m in school during the summer too. We are getting married in between this semester and the summer semester. I have a final the Wednesday the week of our wedding. We’re driving to the beach Thursday. Rehearsal/Dinner on Friday. Married on Saturday. Staying until the following Friday. Start school a week after we get home from honeymoon! That weekend is the only weekend in 2011 when we can get married and have a week long honeymoon, and then I have a week off before I have to start back!
Busy time 🙂

I wanted a wedding full of peonies, so May fit the bill! We also wanted a long weekend so we could have our semi-destination wedding on a Sunday, so we were between Memorial Day, 4th of July, or Labor Day. May won out on all accounts 🙂

Good weather since having the reception outdoors is very important to us. Here in DC, March is cold and the weather gets nasty and hot starting around late June, so it was either April or May! I forgot how we got to the exact date though…

I always wanted to get married in an Outdoor Ceremony in Spring. The weather would be just right.
April would have been too risky because of the rain and the plants would still be budding. June would be too hot to be in Formal wear. So we chose May.
It seems to be the first batch of Weddings, so I liked being in the front!

@MrsMaine: I picked my date based on peonies as well! My birthday is in May, so aside from the flowers I’ve always loved the month.
