Getting married on a holiday has become more and more popular over the years. While getting married on Valentine’s Day, New Year’s Eve, or even the Fourth of July might sound appealing to couples, there are some things you should consider.
You’ll always remember your anniversary date! As the years pass by you’ll never forget your special date.
Your family is already together. Most families who live far apart will spend holidays with their families so getting married on a holiday is a pro since everyone will be together anyways.
Your guests may already have time off work. If you are thinking about Thanksgiving or Christmas for your wedding, this could be an ideal time since your guests will likely have plenty of time off. Be sure to check the calendar to see what day of the week the holiday falls on.
It is a built-in fun theme. If you love a good theme this is the option for you! Venues will often be decorated around holidays as well which could cut costs in other areas.
Guests may be unavailable. Chances are, they may already have plans for the holidays. If you would like a big wedding you may want to choose a non-holiday date when more guests will be available.
It’s already a more expensive time of year. Flights are more expensive over holidays, and people may be financially drained from buying gifts, decorations, and food.
If the cons outweigh the pros, think about having an intimate ceremony on the holiday of your choice and a celebration at a later date when guests might be more available. After all, it is your day!
