Rant or Rave: Hosting a Wedding on a Holiday?

A busy wedding planner recently told me that she had three weddings taking place over Thanksgiving weekend. When I was surprised, she noted that many people choose to host their celebrations over the holidays because people will already be traveling home, it’s generally less expensive than a spring or summer wedding and it gives them the chance to do something particularly unique with their decor.

On the other hand, holiday weddings force out-of-town guests to spend more on plane tickets, and it takes time away from your guest’s family celebrations.


Have you ever been to a Thanksgiving wedding or a Christmas wedding? What do you think about hosting a wedding near a major holiday? Do holiday weddings make you want to rant or rave?

    if it is carefully planned, that they have told their guests about their wedding, months before it actually take place. I could probably make an arrangement to come. No need to be mad though. A wedding is still a cause for celebration.

    Having a Valentine’s Day wedding. Know I am crazy but a romantic also. Know flowers are going to be the biggest dent in my budget. Found a site that had reasonable prices and good alternative ideas
