I mean, these days I don’t see many people going out of their way to spend it with their moms, usually I just see dads getting them flowers… I want to get married on a sunday and the perfect day in may happens to be mother’s day. I’m not having a huge wedding, around 50 people… I just don’t want people to hate me for using that day…

There are like a million stupid hallmark holidays – if people avoided all of them no one would ever get married.

Depends on the people. I dont think its wrong but maybe inconveniant. I usually just take my mom out to lunch and then spend time with my kids. I would just feel like the day would be jammed packed and then I have work the next day so its more like “ughhhh”. But if its all close family attending then I dont think anyone would mind.

laschai: Not at all, and you’ll probaby get some kind of discount for it. I had friends get married on Father’s Day, and it couldn’t have been more perfect! Do what’s best for you!

Do what is best for you, but don’t hold it against people who can’t attend. I personally would not be upset if I attended a wedding on Mother’s Day as it’s not an important holiday to me. I usually celebrate with my mom a day or two before Mother’s Day though (to avoid crowds and what-not).

I’m a first time mother now and I wouldn’t be offended if you got married on mother’s day. I say do it.

laschai: I almost did mine on mother’s day as well, so I see no problem in having it then. I think it is a nice little celebration for moms to get out of the house, enjoy good company and what woman doesn’t like going to a wedding?? Do what you want, it is your day.

laschai: Well, I definitely make a point to spend time with my mom on Mother’s Day (take her out to lunch or dinner and get her a gift), but if I was close to you that wouldn’t stop me from attending your wedding. I’d do something with my mom the day before or the day after.

you might get some weird comments from people but i don’t see any problem with it. my family celebrates “whenever works” so not always that specific day. we’d just work around it if we had plans like that.

I don’t see a problem with it. As PP stated, if people would try to avoid every holiday, there would be virtually no one getting married.

laschai: No, but I think it would be nice if you found a way to honor mothers at your wedding. A toast, special prayer or giving mothers in attendance a flower (my church gives every mother a carnation on Mother’s Day).

laschai: I don’t think it’s a big deal. Mother’s Day isn’t a real holiday per se. It’s doubtful that your guests will feel terribly inconvenienced if they have to spend time with Mom on Saturday instead of Sunday.

Seeing as how the wedding will be 5 years away, I think you have plenty of time to poll the actual people you will be inviting.
I would not be offended though and would attend a wedding on Mother’s Day.

our wedding was the day before father’s day, and we didn’t think twice. i think it would actually be nice for the moms to all be around family/friends, and other guests who are moms might see it as a great celebration.

I think you will get a lot of people who won’t come. People don’t only spend the day with their spouses, but also with their mothers and grandmothers. I would pick a different day.
