Wedding ceremony the weekend before new semester starts...


Recommended Posts



I am getting married the weekend before new semester starts (08/23/2014) and the wedding is going to be outside US.

I've already been accepted to two programs and both programs start on the 25th of August (TWO DAYS AFTER MY WEDDING! NO HONEYMOON FOR ME...BOO!!) 


it is most likely that I am going to miss new student orientation. 


Do you think it is okay to write an email explaining my situation and see if I can get exempted? 

I am going to the States for a week in April; do you think I can ask if I can fill out important documents and discuss key issues covered during orientation from the department/ professors instead? 


The best solution would be changing my wedding date thoughI cannot change the wedding date because of my fiance.

He is in grad school and his summer break starts on the 15th of August. 


What would be the best way to approach this? Please help me!
