- Wedding: June 2014
I have had to change my wedding date so many times now that it’s not even funny. I had to change it from June to August because it was too close to Hodag Country Festival for my Fiance. Then I had to change it from the date I chose in August because it was too close to the local fairs and it was on a weekend my mom’s friend was getting married. Finally, we settled on August 18th. I became very comfortable with this date and liked that we didn’t have any major holidays or birthdays around it. However, we just found out we are now expecting a baby.
Our options were either to keep the date and have me huge and 8 months pregnant at the wedding and not be able to fit into my gown, get married at the courthouse and have another wedding after the baby, or bump up the date. After a great deal of going back and forth, we decided to bump up the date so I could have my dress and because in the end we probably wouldn’t have another wedding after the baby anyway.
We chose May 19th as our new date. The other night my Fiance went to the reception hall to book it for the changed date, but they were already booked and he picked the next weekend on the 26th instead. I’m not exactly happy about the date. May is already a busy month. My father’s birthday, Mother’s Day, my FI’s birthday, and then our wedding too? It could have been worse, and it kind of happened that way too. I told my mom the date and she started fretting because it is close to graduation so there will be parties around that time people have to attend, and it is Memorial Day weekend which might hinder guests from being able to attend as well or go the other way and maybe make it more possible to come.
At this point I’m torn. Part of me just says heck with it. I’m so tired of trying to change this date and plan my wedding that I just don’t care anymore. We have at least 300 guests to invite so there will still be a great deal of people there, so if some can’t make it then that’s just how it is. On the other hand, I would like it at a time that works for most. So I’m just stuck on what to do at this point.
