    No, not for that reason. It was for COVID and other reasons.

    No. It's your wedding, you plan it for when it works for you.

    We did accommodate some family conflicts, but the BP was, "this is when it is, can you do it?"

    If it is something extreme such as your sibling is in the hospital for a long time, I can totally understand moving it. If it is someone who just is trying to move it for their own schedule or personal motives, no. We had two groomsmen drop out due to COVID concerns which we understood and the wedding still went on as planned. Hope this helps and good luck!!!

    Definitely not! I can see if it was COVID but if the date you chose for your wedding doesn’t work for them but it does for everybody else especially the bride & groom, keep the date you originally chose.

    No, and I honestly probably wouldn't because it's MY wedding!

    I probably wouldn't move the date for someone else, though I think it'd depend on the situation.

    I would never change my date based on a member of my wedding party! If they are not cooperative, or my wedding date did not work with their schedule, I just would not have them in my wedding.

    Nope! Its your wedding. I had my grandma ask me to push my wedding to the following Saturday of what I wanted before looking at venues so my uncle can come stay longer due to work. I told her he has 2 years to figure it out and that's the date we picked and depends on our venue!

    I think it would depend on the situation. If it was my best friend and something extreme that couldn’t be avoided, then I might. But if it’s a scheduling conflict like a vacation or something like that, then no way!

    My flower girl is my FH daughter and her mom is the problem. She wont let her come see us when it's just the weekend, so I'm scared that she wont be there. They never went to court. So he doesnt have court visitation

    This new information makes it a lot more complicated than your original post. This situation is about so much more than your wedding or a date. Sounds like your future spouse needs to get a visitation agreement in writing. If they don't sort this out now, these kinds of issues will plague your married life, not to mention cause harm to the innocent daughter.

    You have plenty of time before your wedding, so I would focus on getting the legal stuff in order first, and then continue planning your wedding.

    You need to get the custody settled first. Then have the wedding you can afford afterward.
