Pros and Cons of Holiday Weddings

I just returned from Miami where I coordinated a gay wedding celebration on July 3 for a couple who were first legally married in Massachusetts.  What an awesome wedding that was!  It's HOT in South Florida right now but it was a great day.

So that brings me to a question:  what are some pros and cons of having a wedding on a holiday or holiday weekend?

  • You have two evenings (typically the Saturday and the Sunday) for a great party.
  • More time to recover before work, typically on Tuesday.
  • More time to spend with your guests over an entire weekend/more events where everyone can be together.
  • Often more expensive for your guests to travel, if applicable.
  • Hotel rooms may be more expensive.
  • Some vendors may charge more than usual (though typically only for winter holidays).
Jen and I were married on July 3 as well and we had a fair number of guests travel for our gay wedding.  They didn't grumble but yours might.  What do you think?  Would you consider getting married on a holiday or holiday weekend?
