Brides often wonder whether it is appropriate to have a wedding on a
holiday weekend like Memorial Day. Some fear that guests may already
have vacation plans during that time and others think that it may even
be rude to ask people to give up a long weekend for their wedding.
Only you know your guests. Some families may be unhappy with the idea
while others may be excited to have special plans. In my opinion, a
holiday weekend can be a great time to invite guests to a destination
wedding. Many people go out of town so why not have them enjoy a
beautiful destination? Another perk is that a long weekend allows for
extra travel time and an extra day to enjoy the wedding location. One
thing to remember is that you should be sure to secure a good hotel rate
as holiday weekends tend to be more expensive.
What do you think about getting married on a holiday weekend? Have you
attended other weddings that have made your holiday weekend a great
excuse for a mini-vacation? Or is it too much of a financial burden and
time commitment for your guests?
