Setting the date – am I being unreasonable?

My elder daughter is starting to plan her wedding. When looking at potential dates I have asked her to consider the fact that her younger sister is at university and so some distance away. She is looking at October next year and when I pointed out her sister would be at university then, she basically said ‘tough’. For a Saturday wedding this would mean someone going on a 350 mile round trip on the Friday evening and again on Sunday. I don’t think she understands just how tiring this would be in addition to a full day wedding.
