wedding date

So, my fiance and I just got engaged, and we already know we want a 2014 fall wedding. I told him I wanted 12/13/14 wedding, and he told me no! the reason he is telling me no, is it's too close to Thanksgiving and Christmas. That a lot of people will be traveling during this time. Should I push and push and push for this date, or just let if go and agree on something else? Advice please!! :)

First, congratulations and welcome to Project Wedding!


He does have a valid point. People tend to have a lot of stuff going on during that time and some may not be able to make it to your wedding because of that. Would you be okay with missing out on some of your potential guests in order to have that date? If not, I would consider moving it to before Thanksgiving.

Yeah see if he would have put it like that, I would have understand, but it was a NO and no reasons, besides the travel thing, and I would hate to miss family Christmas parties.... OK :)  Thank you!!

:) Men think we can get inside their heads and know what they're thinking, and we CAN'T. And they think WE'RE complicated! ;)

I loooove fall weddings, too. It wasn't in the cards for me, but the idea of an October wedding makes me giddy!

I wanted a fall wedding too more like in mid November but our families hate the cold weather. Have you looked into October wedding dates?

i agree with the ladies above.  if you are looking for a unique wedding date how about 10-12-14 with is a sunday.  vendors are cheaper then anyway.

That date would be awesome! But like your FH and everyone is saying, to close to the holidays. I myself LOVE the idea of a fall wedding. October is by far my favorite month. (birthday month) I tossed around the idea of a fall wedding but I am a cold person and my dress is strapless. I know I could probably find somthing to cover but I dont want to, so I went with a warmer month.
