I'll admit, this post is mostly to vent, but any suggestions/wisdom is definitely welcome.
MY FI and I have been engaged since November and have just recently started seriously talking about plans for our wedding. We are both in education, so we'd like to be able to utilize spring or summer break to our advantage.
My issue is this - Texas weather sucks. I'm not originally from here, so I'm still realizing how short spring is and how soon it gets ridiculously hot.
We're looking into a few venues that would allow for a combo outdoor picnic reception, with some indoor space in the event of inclement weather. I've looked at historical weather data for each of our options.
Option 1 - first weekend of spring break ~ March 8 - This weekend is generally too cold for much of the wedding to take place outdoors, which is a important aspect for me.
Option 2 - the last weekend of spring break ~ March 15 - Much better weather historically, but gives us no time for honeymoon after the wedding.
Option 3 - Easter weekend ~ April 19 - Wonderful weather, but again no break time, and potential issues with guests and Easter
Option 4 - Second weekend of June ~ June 10 - As hot as hades, though we would have 10 weeks of vacation immediately afterward
Option 5 - Say screw it and do a destination wedding somewhere during the summer - I'm not crazy about prepackaged resort deals, though I'm sure with some research I can find some good options.
