Three-day weekends are a true blessing, especially when you consider how little spare time we all seem to have these days. Are these holidays a good wedding date, though?

We have gathered some tips to help you weigh in the pros and cons of having a holiday weekend wedding – so read on to find out more.

·       In general, these weekends are not a very good idea for your wedding date. It may seem that three days are enough for guests to travel to your wedding and have a lot of fun – but, in reality, you have to be prepared for quite a lot of negative RSVPs.

·       There are many reasons that make people skip holiday weekend weddings. One of them is simple: they need to rest and relax, just like you do, and just like everyone else does. Millennials are a generally overworked generation and regardless of how they choose to spend their extra-free time, it is their right to say “no” to a wedding during the very few free days they get in a year.

·       Furthermore, there are many guests who may simply have other plans for the holiday weekends. Many people travel during these days, and others have to attend to family obligations – so they might not be able to attend your wedding.

·       If, however, you are completely certain you want a holiday wedding, do make sure to send your Save the Date cards at least several months before the actual Big Day. This will give guests plenty of time to plan in advance (and avoid making other plans for your special weekend).
