Want a Holiday Weekend Wedding? Think Twice…

Holiday weekend weddings are very frequently a top choice for couples who want their Big Day to be truly fairytale-like. In real life, though, these wedding dates may not be a very good idea – and there are some reasons to make you think the same.

So, why think twice before setting your wedding date on a long weekend? We have some tips for you – continue reading to learn more about this.

  • The main reason holiday weekends are not always a good idea for a wedding is connected to the guests and to the holidays themselves. Because these are rare three-day weekends, many guests may make plans long in advance. Some may travel home to spend time with families, some may travel abroad to enjoy a city break, and others may simply need the days to rest and relax before shooting back to work again.
  • Furthermore, it is more than worth mentioning holiday weekends tend to cost more as well. Of course, this is not a general rule – but since wedding specialists are humans too, they might charge more for dates that are already quite busy (which they are spending at work, instead of home with their families, for example).
  • If your heart is truly set on a long weekend wedding, you really have to make certain your Save the Date cards will be sent out long before the wedding date. This will increase the number of positive RSVPs, helping you have a successful wedding day.
