You wish to time your cycle according to your wedding date without using any medication on the specified date. This is possible provided you time your dates at least two cycles in advance. In the current scenario, I cannot assure you that this technique is definitely going to work. Instead, it is safer to go ahead with the hormone medication through your wedding. You may also try oral pills for a couple of months or until as you wish after consulting an expert. Hope you find this information useful. Take care.
