- Wedding: November 2014
FH and I are considering having our wedding the Saturday after Thanksgiving. Although I feel like there will be some things to work out, it’s a plus in my book for a number of reasons:
-I am a teacher so I would automatically get that Wednesday, Thursday and Friday off to prepare, therefore not using up personal days. My mom is also a teacher so it would give her more days/ less complications to be able to help out
-ALL of our extended family is out of town (distances varying greatly). My number one concern is having as many of our family there as possible; and there are a lot! Typically everyone travels to one city or another to get together every year for this weekend anyway. Plus, our cousin’s weddings have been scattered around the US and almost everyone gets to them and does everything in their power to be there.
-All of our guests will have long weekends making it easier to travel. Since it would be on Saturday, our friends could still spend Thanksgiving with their families and then travel on Friday or Saturday. The majority of them live within 2 hours.
I’ve read differently on other posts, but I feel like this would be a great time. In terms of our families, traveling is extremely common multiple times a year for everyone. I feel like we will have more days to see everyone and our guests will not have to take off work to travel.
What do you think? I’ve seen other posts where everyone was so negative and I am jsut wondering if these positives outway the possible complications?
