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?
