So originally we had booked our venue and caterer for May 23rd in Annapolis MD (hadn’t officially signed contracts and paid deposits, but we were about to) and it was just so difficult arranging for hotel blocks. It’s Memorial Day weekend and also the Naval Academy graduation the day before, so prices were jacked up and it was just going to be a very busy weekend. We were told that that was the only date available by the venue so that’s why we originally took it. But this morning we called and explained the situation and she said a few more dates opened up (it’s a very busy and sought-after venue so getting weekends can be tough). I was ecstatic!
So after discussing with our caterer and the hotels that we had blocked, since we hadn’t signed our contracts yet, it was pretty easy to move our date to August 1st! We are so excited and now I get to have a summer wedding instead of spring, which is what I originally wanted. It will be cheaper for our guests to stay and we won’t have to worry about the kids in school not being able to make it, plus FI’s a teacher so he won’t have to take off work.
I’m just so relieved- the whole issue was so stressful and Future Mother-In-Law was freaking out that we picked a terrible date and should cancel the wedding- now she’s happy and I’m just glad we finally got it figured out! Yay for August weddings!
Anyway, thanks for listening. Now I can start planning the other aspects of our wedding 🙂
