5 REASONS TO NOT GET MARRIED ON A HOLIDAY
It's time to set the date for your wedding. You are thinking, "I really want everyone to come, but so many of the live out of town. "I know. Let's get married on a holiday! That way everyone can come." WRONG!
It does sound like the perfect solution. Everyone is already going to be off work and school will be closed. Here are some reasons you shouldn't consider a holiday for your wedding.
- The prices of your vendors can increase because of the holiday (example: florists, caterers, hotels, venues, photographers). The reason could be because their suppliers' prices also increase. They may also increase their prices because they are having to give up their holiday to work your wedding.
- Consider this: What if you were the guest and you were looking forward to traveling for Memorial Day, spending time with family for Christmas, or it's your first Mother's Day...would you want to spend that entire time attending a wedding?
- People who work in retail or the medical field do not always get the holidays off.
- Sometimes the vendors block off the holidays so they can spend time with family and travel. This makes it difficult to book the vendors you want.
- Some venues plan special holiday events. This can restrict or limit the venue you have choose. Also, venues may also decorate for the holiday and will not allow you to change (example: houses of worship).
Don't be the bride or groom people will always remember for ruining their holiday or they didn't get to make a trip because of your wedding.
