You choose a different date- It’s your exam week and I’m sure your Fiance will understand.

Also it’s a Thursday- were you going to do a weekday wedding?

Why does he want this date so badly?

@Randi156: Honestly this sounds totally insane, but you can do it. I think the exams will be a good distraction from wedding stress. You just need to make sure you have everything in order before hand. You may also be able to take your finals earlier in the week during other classes that are the same, if you communicate with your professors early enough.

its far off…is it safe to push the day back or forward? I know Fiance loves it but some things may need to have some leniency .

Or when the time comes perhaps your proff can make an exception due to your marriage. My proffs were always very flexible, since everyone is an adult and has life happening.

I guess I don’t understand why it MUST be that date.

YEah professor are usually nice in these cases. My Husband had a final project to turn in the day after the wedding and he had turned in a first draft to his professor a few days before the wedding. The Professor wrote him back ” Good enough, go get married”! hhahaha

I’m sure if you asked them to take the exams early that would work.

Isn’t your Fiance reasonable enough to understand that you have finals that week?  What’s your worst case scenerio?  What if you can’t change anything?  Is he prepared for that. Are you?  Is there a Plan B? It makes this very stressful, I couldn’t imagine.  Have you put down deposits?

But you know at this point (1.5 years out) that that conflicts with your date. If I were a professor, I would be less understanding of this than if you suddenly realized in March of 2013 that it would be during your final exams.

What about moving it back to 9/5? That is also a Thursday. And as far as the honeymoon – your wedding date has nothing to do with when you leave, why not wait a few days so you can leave on whatever day of the week it is that you’re wanting to leave?

Quite honestly, I would tell your Fiance to pick a different date or move it back a year. You might be able to survive that week itself, but think about that whole semester, you’re going to have fittings, bridal showers, all that stuff + classes, studying, and paying for your wedding. It won’t be that final week that kills you, it’ll be the months leading up to it.
