I wouldn’t be happy if I were that bride and I found that an employee of the venue was sharing details on my wedding online.

I certainly hope that you had the discretion not to post your correct location or that the location of your weddingis not the location of the venue where you are employed.

I suggest you  check your post if necessary to ensure that you are not causing embarassment to a client.

Yes, this is what I hear about holiday weddings, even things like Memorial Day… that many people just have long-standing yearly plans and they WILL NOT give them up. The problem here is the huge number of people who bailed without giving notice! How inconsiderate and awful!

By The Way, I have no problem with you posting this. You properly de-identified it and it’s no worse than people posting about other weddings they’re attended. You aren’t being cruel or catty.

I’m blown away by those numbers- unbelievable that that many people would be no-shows, after they RSVP!

Once you get married, you have to split holidays anyway- we celebrated Father’s Day with my family on the 9th due to my brother’s vacation, and with FI’s on the 17th. If I had said to my Dad- “I have a wedding invite for Sunday, are you ok with getting together another day?”- no problem!

I would never have scheduled on a holiday like that. However, my wedding is July 6 which is close enough to July 4 to conflict with a lot of people’s family functions that weekend. I knew what I was getting into though, and it was the best weekend to chose.

I feel bad for that girl, but I think she should have known better. Hopefully this doesn’t happen to anyone else!

I know that people have this problem sometimes when they choose to do it on a 3-day holiday weekend, like memorial day or labor day. I hope people learn from this!
