    You are using email field types for "Event Date", "Phone", "Ceremony / Reception Location" and "Are You Interested in Having PhotoBooth Included in a Package". That is likely to cause validation problems as the CF7 plugin will be looking for valid email addresses for those fields.

    A number of your other CF7 tags also look wrong e.g "your-best time to call" should probably be "your-best-time-to-call".

    Might be several other errors but already too many for me to keep looking.

    Would suggest you review the CF7 documentation for each CF7 tag you are using to find further errors.

    Thanks Buzztone
    I changed almost all of my tags and it works much better. Im having some issues with my date however. I would like to have my answer be the way I want MM-DD-YYYY however it only passes if its in this format of YYYY-MM-DD. How do I change that? I would actually prefer a calendar where they can choose the date visually.

    <p>Your Name (required)
        [text* your-name] </p>
    <p>Your Email (required)
        [email* your-email] </p>
    <p>Your Event Date ex. MM-DD-YYYY </br>
       [[date date-659 min:06-01-2013 max:12-31-2013]</p>
    <p> Your Phone Number</br>
       [tel tel-901]
    <p> Best time to call/text</br>
       [text text-210]
    <p> Ceremony/Reception Location?</br>
       [text text-81]
    <p> Are you interested in having Photobooth at your wedding?</br>
       [radio radio-691 "Yes" "No"]
    <p> How did you hear about us?</br>
       [text text-864]
    <p>Anything else we should know or any questions you may have?
        [textarea your-message] </p>
    <p>[submit "Send"]</p>

    The new CF7 date tag is a HTML5 date input type. Currently, only some modern browsers support this input type. See http://www.wufoo.com/html5/types/4-date.html for the low down on the new HTML5 form element. Assume you looked at http://contactform7.com/date-field/

    Note also that [[date date-659 min:06-01-2013 max:12-31-2013] should be [date date-659 min:06-01-2013 max:12-31-2013]
