It’s not like it’s an official holiday here in the States. I’d go with May 5, I think it would be fun!

My only concern with such a date would be the greater potential for more drunk drivers on the road due to such a party day, so I would be extra cautious for guests’ safety traveling to and from the wedding.

My cousin is getting married on September 11, 2011. It wouldn’t be my choice, but honestly, once we’re all at the wedding, it’s not going to make a big difference.

 

If you want May 5th, go for it! The people who are likely to overdo it don’t need the holiday as an excuse. You’ll probably need to keep an eye on them either way. Likewise, people who can control themselves will be fine at your wedding. They’re not going to get ridiculous just because it’s Cinco de Mayo.

I think you’ll be fine. It’s not even an important Mexican holiday (many are surprised by the celebrations in the US) since their independence day is Sept 16. Of course, your husband’s family is Latino, so that doesn’t matter either.

Your guests will only get drunk on margaritas if you have margaritas there for them to get drunk on… limit the kinds of beverages available if you really think it will be a problem for people.

Unless you actually planned a Cinco de Mayo theme, I doubt your guests will even think about it!
