If you had to get married on a holiday, which one would you choose, and why?

Would you choose one that gave you great decor options? Would you choose a long holiday weekend so you and your guests could stretch out the celebration? If you are already planning a holiday wedding, tell us all about it!

    My first thought was Thanksgiving. It's a very selfless, family-oriented holiday, and all about gratitude of course.

    We are kind of getting married on a holiday. Ok not exactly but close. We are getting married in the Saturday that falls between Christmas and New Years. We will have Christmas trees decorating both the ceremony and reception areas. And I’m making sure to have lots of sparkle!

    We picked this time of year because it’s the one time of year we know everyone from our families will be back in town.

    Halloween for its price discount and to dress up and have masks as props to look classy.

    Theme could be Masquerade from Phantom of the Opera. It would be fun.

    I would looooove to do Christmas Eve! It's our actual dating anniversary and it would have been amazing to marry my FH on the same day!

    We’re getting married on my grandmother’s birthday, which in 2019 happens to fall during Easter weekend, which is an added bonus. It’s the only holiday we’d likely consider.

    When we discussed wedding dates we both wanted to avoid the summer months, and there are too many sad days in the fall (my FH’s parents are no longer alive and their anniversary and birthdays are in the fall). Jan-March are too cold, so we decided on April and my gran’s birthday - which I’ve always considered to be a high holy day.

    It’s also a cross country destination wedding, so we figure guests will be able to travel bc they’ll have the time off or they’ll decline bc it’s a holiday weeekend. We’re hoping for a low final guest count so it’s win-win either way.

    I ADORE Christmas (I celebrate it for a full 2 months minimum every year)... but I'd never share it with my wedding.

    MAYBE I'd do NYE so it can have some Christmas spill over, and it's a great excuse for a big party (any celebrating your anniversary each year)...

    However I'm big into your wedding day/anniversary standing on it's own, so no matter which holiday I like, I'd never be able to do it.

    Thanksgiving would be great for the decor, but you can use Fall decor at any time in Sept-Nov...

    If I absolutely had to, I’d opt for Halloween as it’s my fiancé and I’s favourite holiday. It also happens to be during the same season our wedding will be anyway.

    I'm not a huge fan of weddings on holidays, to be honest. If I had unlimited budget and had to pick a holiday, I'd go with NYE.

    I'm picturing a modern/industrial spin of the roaring 20's/Great Gatsby look. Champagne towers, gold accents, black tie attire. I'd go all out haha.

    If I could choose any holiday, without my FH's opinion, and not have any backlash about it being on a holiday - I would choose Christmas. It's my favourite holiday. Fresh snow is so beautiful and I love the red and silver look Smiley xd

    If it was still that holiday and I would get the backlash - I would go for one of the more low-key holidays (for my family) like Thanksgiving. We don't exactly celebrate it much so it wouldn't bother many people to give up their Saturday when they have the Monday off.

    I think if I had to choose I would pick Thanksgiving. I love the colours, and would make it all fall decorations.

    I was also considering doing a New Years Eve wedding because then all the family is together bringing in the new year!

    I'd do it on halloween. No pumpkins, everything in black, glitter red, irridescent white, somewhat vampiric. Costumes mandatory. Even without this, I spent a long time eyeing a black and grey dress for my wedding before committing to my existing dress.

    I bet your family appreciates that more of them will get the chance to attend! Is all this fall weather right now giving you lots of decor inspiration?
