We’re the 4th (Saturday) of that weekend! I love the 3 day weekend. We also considered the 25th but you never know with the weather in NE Ohio so we figured the earlier in September the better! Plus with so many people traveling we figured they’d appreciate the extra day off.

I’m getting married this year on Labor Day weekend… And, it worked out great for us because we were able to negotiate more with vendors on that weekend.

If you provide folks with enough notice, it shouldn’t be a problem that you’re having it on a holiday weekend. What’s nice about the Sunday is folks will have Monday off too.

We’re teh 4th – lots of OOTers to give them ample travel time. 

It’s not really summer or fall, IMO, so you’re not tied to traditional color palettes.  I am a big fan of not doing seasonal colors anyway.  We’re doing navy and white with pink and purple accents.

There seems to be baby blue in small doses in those pictures.  That would be lovely with dark green!  I dont know if you’re set on colored flowers, but I have seen some beautiful green and white bouquets that would also go very well with that.  Not that you need to coordinate with your venue, but if you want to, there are definitely options!

We’re getting married on Sunday, Sept. 5th.  We thought it would be a perfect weekend for out of town guests and no one will have to work on Monday since it is Labor Day.  Also, our reception rental fee is almost half the price of a Saturday night and we get to celebrate our anniversaries on a long weekend every year!

We’re getting married on the Sunday of Labor Day weekend this year.  This worked perfectly because we have a lot of Out of Town guests (and bridal party!).  We planned it like this to give guests Saturday and Monday to travel, without having to take any extra time off.  (Our Out of Town guests are all coming early and staying for a week anyway though–oh well, we tried to be thoughtful!)

We are getting married Labor Day Sunday of next year. It helped us save money on our venue but it’s making the photographer search harder as so many are already booked!!! Wish we would have started looking earler.

We’re getting married Sunday, September 5th of Labor Day.

As our Coordinator at the hall told us, its the same as a Saturday! But it also was cheaper!

Only problem now is that our wedding is in a touristy town during the summer months, so booking hotel rooms might be tough!

We are getting married September 4th, 2010, the Saturday before Labor Day and I JUST read in a bridal magazine about how rude it is to take the holiday weekend away from guests! I mean, there’s nothing we can do now anyway, our money is in and everything, but I’m wondering what you guys think of that? I didn’t think it was rude, I thought it would make it easier for guests to make it? Maybe I’ve had too much of the bride kool aid 🙂

mrscingle2b, you’re in Cleve??! I am too and we’re getting married on the same day 🙂
