Talk about stress! My date was set for April 5, 2014 in Charleston (where I live) for my venue, photographer, DJ, and bagpiper (and wedding party). We did not realize April 5th is the same day as the Cooper River bridge run and tennis cup finals, which means no hotel blocks and $300+ a night for hotels, if you are so lucky to get one. According to a hotel sales manager, "it's the worst day of the year to have a wedding in Charleston". So I scrambled to call everyone and see if anything else was available - luckily April 19th was free for everyone. The only downfall is that it's during Passover, and Easter weekend. But we are able to get hotel blocks and good rates for our guests. So glad it worked out!!
