The date you choose for your wedding can be really important for its success – so it is much better to be fully prepared and to plan your wedding date with great attention to detail, rather than wake up with not enough guests at your Big Day.
What are some wedding dates to avoid in 2016 and 2017? We have gathered some tips for you – so read on and find out more.
Long weekends. Memorial Day, Labor Day and Columbus Day are National Holidays associated with long weekends, so you might want to avoid setting your wedding then. Otherwise, your guests may have already planned something and you will be disappointed.
The SuperBowl Sunday. Sure, this is not an actual celebration, but considering most Americans will want to see this event, you will also want to avoid it. In 2017, the SuperBowl Sunday will fall on February 5th).
Thanksgiving. Most of your guests will want to spend their Thanksgiving (November 24th in 2016 and November 23rd in 2017) with their families. Thus, setting your wedding date on Thanksgiving is not a good idea, as not many people will be able to attend it.
Religious holidays of all types. If you know some of your relatives and friends are religious and if you know this will prevent them from coming to your wedding, avoid the dates altogether. Passover, Ramadan and lent are usually associated with periods of mourning, fasting or retirement from social life – so your religious guests will not be able to come to your wedding if it’s set around these holidays.
