    As a guest, I vote for the week of July 2nd so I can capitalize on the holiday and an extra day off work (or one less vacation day to use)!

    Edit to add:  Personally – I don’t ever have any 4th traditions I’d be sad about missing.  I’d think it would be fun to plan the holiday out of town.

    Here’s my thinking:

    avoid the period and avoid the 4th. More people than you realize have traditions around that holiday that they may not want to skip for your wedding. You mentioned that the last week of June was more expensive so I ended up picking the first option.

    I would be of the mindset that I wouldn’t want to go on vacation for the Fourth and then go on vacation right away to Hawaii, I would go with June 11th-18th.

    @littlemissmango: I also wasn’t crazy about the first week options because high schoolers (at least in my area) are still in school.  Plus, if there are any graduations in the family (or friends of the family) it’s a lot to squeeze in or potentially miss.  I’d be more upset about missing out on a graduation of a close friend, etc.

    @littlemissmango:  what do YOU and Fiance want?  Honestly – all opinions aside -what makes the most sense for you two?

    Personally – I wouldn’t want my wedding to be on the last date of my period.  I’m pretty regular +/- a couple days – usually later than earlier.  So, for me, that would rule out those 2 weeks.

    I wouldn’t let the daughter turning 2 be the reason you bump it up… AND – will the weather really be all that different from one week to the next??
