Stop changing your date to accommodate others! It’s your wedding…if the date works for you and your Fiance, then it will work for everyone else. We got married over Labor Day and invited close to 400 people. Over 300 still came, and who couldn’t be there, we totally understood. It’s over a holiday weekend…people are going ot have longstanding plans. As long as you’re ok with that…I say stick with it.

If you are inviting that many people, you will likely have some that can’t make it, but many who will.  It will be okay.

You will be surprised at how flexible people can actually be. You can’t satisfy everyone as not everyone will be able to make it, no matter what you do. Stick to the date you really want, don’t compromise for others or there will never be a right day to do it on! 🙂

You know…there are always going to be something going on around your wedding time.  I say, if your immediate family is available that weekend, book it!  Not worth the stress it is causing you now. 


We went to a Labor Day weekend wedding recently too.  Which works well for a lot of people since it’s a long weekend.  But if you plan on doing a long weekend wedding, make sure to let people know early so they can book cheaper flight ticket  🙂


We were pretty firm on our date, or at least month.  So we just gave everyone notice far in advance and let others work around our schedule.  If they can’t make it, sorry then.  it’s our day and I want to do it my way.  As soon I confirmed all my immediate family will be okay with the date, we just ran with it.
