We recently changed our wedding date to accommodate our change in venue. I originally wanted a spring wedding (cheaper, and less common.) Now that we will be having the wedding outdoors (renting a tent of course) we have to compensate for when it will be muddy- for parking and general messiness and mishaps related to mud.
That being said, and after much deliberation, we picked a new date. Good, we're happy with it, relieved to have mutually agreed.
We informed our parents, and I informed my maid of honor, matron of honor, and bridesman. FI didn't inform his best man until some time after we had changed it.
So the day after Best Man was informed, his wife calls to tell us that our new wedding date is the same as a (mutual) friend's, whom they both happen to be a part of the wedding party of as well. Their wedding date has been set for a while.
FI says that we should just leave our date as is. Almost (although he didn't say it) like a challenge to who's friendship is more important to Best Man. He did say, "If he wants to be in our wedding, he'll be there."
We don't have our date physically set in stone, just mentally. No save the dates have been made, since we're DIY a lot, no contracts have been signed for a specific date either.
Should we change our date again? Best Man is important to us; and I'm anticipating his toast to us, plus his humor to add to the whole day.
Suggestions? Has this happened to anyone else?
Best Man hasn't said anything about it thus far.
