I am personally not a fan of weddings on holiday weekends.  However, Father’s Day is generally not as big as Mother’s Day so you could probably get away with it.  Just make sure it’s okay with your dads and granddads before locking the date.  I think you will likely have more of an issue with out of town guests due to the wedding being on a Friday.

We had a Father’s Day weekend wedding (on that Saturday afternoon) and I don’t think anyone minded. Most people that I know don’t travel for Fathers Day the way they do for other holidays, so it was fine!

I don’t really think Father’a Day counts as a “holiday weekend” because it’s not actually a stat holiday. And it’s not like you’re having it on the Sunday. I think the date is fine!

@Pinkmoon:  +1. It isn’t a long weekend, and your chosen date is friday night so I don’t see any problem at all with it.
