I don’t think it’s bad taste but if I was an out of town guest that was close enough to be invited to/want to attend the ceremony and reception I might be a little annoyed at having to stay for two weeks or come twice.

To me this depends on how many and who you are inviting to the ceremony. If this a tiny family thing, then a big party for friends later I don’t really see a problem with it. To me that is similar to a destination elopement with a celebration later.

Also, I’m not sure if the long weekend is really intruding. Unless you know of people who always have Memorial Day plans, this might just be a happy excuse for them to spend a few days at the beach. I went to a wedding out of town last weekend (Labor Day) and the extra day off made traveling much easier, and gave us time to play tourist.

Why not just have it the same day as cere3mony, why wait until a week after memorial which is 2 weeks after your ceremony? I would be annoyed to have to travel twice for one wedding.
