I am having a labor day weekend wedding in the US, and I have not had any surcharges. The Sunday should still probably be cheaper. If anything, it’s been easier and cheaper because there are so many vendors still available, since it seems like holiday weekends are less popular for weddings

I also have a long weekend (Labor Day) and I wasnt charged extra. Actually, some vendors offered discounts.

Long weekends may be more expensive as you they will likely have to pay staff time and a half to work a holiday.
