    I’m getting married the Sunday of Labor Day weekend, part way between my family (1.5 hours) and his (3.5 hours). We hope that no one would have to take off work to attend.

    My sister was married the Sunday of Memorial Day weekend, with 95% local guests. About 45% of the guests made use of the hotel discount rate, and stayed overnight anyway.

    We’re going to a wedding on the 5th (with a long drive time) and I’m glad it’s on the Saturday so DH and I don’t have to use vacation time to go – we can travel there on the 4th and back on the 6th.

    I was married on Labor Day Sunday and a lot of guests from OOT were able to make it because they didn’t have to miss work to travel.
