Would love some advice from you lovely ladies!
Hi ladies! Congratulations to all of you on your engagements! I'm sure you are finding the planning just as exciting/daunting as I am!
So basically I have already changed my mind a few times about the date (I am a typical Libra and find making decisions very difficult!) I was originally going to have my wedding this year in November and have a winter wonderland/Christmas theme as it is my favourite time of year but I am dead set on having the reception at my parents house as they have a huge beautiful garden complete with lake, barn, swimmjng pool and tennis court. I am super close to my family and have had the most amazing memories at the house I grew up in so to me a venue just wouldn't cut it as I wouldn't feel it was personal enough. Because of having it at the house, a winter wedding wouldn't be viable unfortunately as people would be parking in the fields and having cars/heels stuck wouldn't be ideal for anyone! So the only time I could have it would be in the summer so everyone could enjoy the garden (obviously weather permitting!) I was thinking of having it in May 2016 on the bank holiday weekend of sat 28th. Do you think bank holiday is a good time to have it or would you advise against it? Also does anyone have any experience of a wedding in May? If so would you say it is a good month to have it in?
Thank you for taking the time to read my rambling message x
