    If you have kids that are invited or anyone in the school system, June may be better because people will be out of school. Same goes for college aged people. Also, I feel like June is getting hot but isnt excruciating at that point.

    Your year looks pretty open. I’d avoid Memorial Day, 4th of July, and Labor Day in WI, because people generally have annual plans.

    Don’t worry about “too close to halloween” unless you’re having the wedding in downtown Madison…

    I’d just start looking at venues and churches, compare their availability, and then pick a date. At least here in CA, you’re not getting a discount for off-season in any month except January and maybe February.

    Are any of your close friends or family getting married next year? You may want to add that to your “calendar” as well. πŸ™‚ (When my Fiance and I put together our calendar, we ended up with a four-month window that wouldn’t step on toes… And of those four months, we only had two weekends where we could get the church and the venue… And I’d rather have my preferred venue than my preferred date. But thats up to you!)

    Good luck~

    I’m having my wedding on October 13, 2012. Good date. πŸ˜‰

    ETA: I did the same as you though.  I went through every month and listed every occasion, event, birthday, graduation, etc.  People looked at me like I was nuts.

    I’m a May girl.  The weather is warming up but not too hot.  The flowers are in bloom. Prices are still low. πŸ™‚  What’s not to love?  My one thing was we loved loved loved the venue and it was unavailable the 26th but the 19th is after my birthday and who would want an anniversary the day after their birthday?  Turns out we waited and got the 26th but than we found out the 27th is 10% off because it is a Sunday.  Sold.  We’ll take it.

    I voted for July. If you get married at the end of June of very beginning of July (like the 1st, so that family can still do their own 4th of july thing or what-have-you), there will be fireworks on your honeymoon (and around subsequent anniversaries). I think that would be a neat addition to the celebration. πŸ™‚

    @MmeSilverBullet:

    What about August? It looks pretty open, although I noticed there’s an x by the 25th…

    We got married in March (aka 3 weeks ago haha), and while the date was a sentimental date for us, we also found that our prices were super low.  Also, everyone is open, both vendors and guests.  I mean, what happens in March?  Well… except for March Madness… but whatever.

    I loved that we had the pick of any vendor we wanted, prices were lower, and most people were able to come.  It’s also more of a unique time of year to get married!

    We chose labor day! We have lots of Out of Town guests and wanted it to be easier/more care free to travel. I polled some family before setting the date and they all loved the idea. For most people I know, Labor Day weekend isn’t highly celebrated here and most people aren’t busy so that’s why we made our choice. We want to be able to spend the sunday with our guests as well (my parents are planning to throw a bbq). Hopefully it works out well for us! My Future Mother-In-Law is thrilled not to have to take any time off work as well haha.
