My fiance and I got engaged last August, but because of several factors (paying for the wedding ourselves, unemployment, moving to a new apartment) we haven’t yet been able to put down money on a location, so we don’t have a firm date yet. We were hoping to schedule the wedding in early May of 2011.
A little less than two weeks ago, my fiance’s brother and his long-time girlfriend also got engaged. Her affluent parents are paying for their wedding, and they’ve just announced their location and date - May 26, 2011. :smack:
Setting aside the temptation to stick with my preferred date of May 7 (oh, so tempting!), how long should we wait after their wedding to schedule ours? My fiance’s family places a lot of emphasis on gift-giving, and I don’t want the two weddings to turn into a burden. We can’t wait too late in the season, though, because my family will all be flying in, and we don’t want to risk a snowstorm blowing in and grounding all the planes.
