    I’d say Memorial Day weekend. I think more people are likely to be available then.

    Seconded on Memorial Day weekend. In my experience, more people travel or make their own plans for the weekend of the 4th of July.

    I say Memorial Day weekend because memorial day is always observed on Monday, and the fourth of July can be on Friday. I guess I would just rather have two days off after the wedding for other plans instead of the wedding in between. But really, I’d make either work as long as i had some advance notice! 🙂

    Third to Memorial Day. July 4th is the more popular one out of the two.

    Definitely Memorial Day. My best friend had her wedding the Sunday of Memorial Day weekend (which saved her a ton of money) AND she had an 85% acceptance rate. And it was an awesome time plus everyone had Monday off so we made a long weekend of the whole thing.

    I think either are actually good days.  You will always (depending on when it falls) have a long weekend on your anniversary!  Also, if you wanted to save money and depending on availability and all, having your wedding on the Sunday before Memorial day is nice too.  Just a thought!

    I voted Memorial Day. Where I live, although Memorial Day weekend is usually the start to summer lake season, it’d beasier to plan around and you get that extra Monday if you wanted to head somewhere Sunday through Monday.

    Whereas the 4th, people may want to get a start on traveling for the long weekend they may have.
