The Pros and Cons of a Memorial Day Wedding

As most brides already know, it is almost impossible to start planning your wedding until you have set a date.  With Memorial Day right around the corner, you may have started debating if you should arrange for your wedding falls on a holiday.  There are a few pros and cons to consider before having your wedding on a holiday such as Memorial Day.

The biggest advantage to arranging for a Memorial Day wedding is that most people get to have a three-day weekend, which increases the number of people who will be able to attend your wedding.  This is turn means that you will be surrounded by people you love!  Another benefit to the three-day weekend is that most people will be more willing to travel a further distance to make it to your wedding, which gives you more options when choosing a locale.

A Memorial Day wedding is also a great way to honor someone who you love, and who served in the military.  By choosing to have your wedding on this day, you can arrange to honor the person during the service.  This is a great way to remember loved ones you have lost, and to remind those who are still around that they are loved and remain an important part of your life.

An important thing to keep in mind is to book early if you think that Memorial Day or another holiday is the perfect choice for your wedding day.  Families tend to choose Memorial and Labor Day for their family get-togethers.  You might even have a barbeque to attend yourself!  It’s also a popular choice when planning senior graduation parties.  Banquet halls are often booked way in advance, making finding a venue large enough to hold all of your guests more challenging than you originally planned on.

By deliberately choosing Memorial Day for your wedding, you will be limiting the themes and colors you use for the wedding.  Your guests might expect your wedding to have a patriotic theme.
