Anyone else taking advantage of the three day holiday weekend? 🙂
Mine is Sunday evening, July 3rd.. We have a lot of out of town guests and we figured this would be super convenient for them to not have to take any time off work or school.

We are! Sort of. We’re getting married on July 2nd! It works perfectly for people traveling, especially all his Army friends. They will have a 4 day weekend. I’m so so excited for it!

I’m getting married on July 3rd 2011 too!!! I think it will honestly be the BEST DAY of the yr, lol. Sunday’s always have this gentle beauty about them and our first day as a married couple will be SPECTACULAR since it will be the 4th of July! Not to mention almost every reception venue we look at has cheaper prices on Sunday.
It will be a phenonmal 3 day weekend and I know our guest will be delighted. That day also has special meaning to my Fiance and I since he was born on the 7th and I the 3rd 🙂
Congrats on choosing such a special day!!!

I wanted to do this! We were going to have the wedding the weekend of Memorial Day. In the end we just chose a different random Friday because the cost was significantly less.

Me too! July 3, 2011 bride here! We are also taking advantage of the 3 day weekend for Out of Town guests….and the summer weather here in Chicago. We were scared of doing it for the spring, fall, or winter because you never know what Chicago weather will bring. It can snow in the spring and we wouldn’t be surprised.
We have guests from other countries (Philippines & Australia) and they are excited to see how Americans celebrate their 4th of July! I can’t wait to show our guests “stuff Americans do”! (Hotdogs & fries, baseball, downtown Chicago, deep dish pizza, etc.)

Not only do I love that it’s a three day weekend, but also, I love the date of 7/2/2011. Ok, bear with my dorkiness, but I love that the date is “couple-y” – first there’s the “2” in July 2 (as in two people), then there’s another 2, skip the 0, and then there are two 1s (which I can see possibly used in a cheesy way like two stick figures holding hands that represent the two 1s). Also, the 7 “kind of” can look like a 2. Alright I’m done… I figure this is probably the best place to share my dorky thoughts as the outside world will probably think I’m ridiculous…! 🙂
p.s. hazel920, we have guests coming from the Philippines and Australia also that weekend. Maybe some of them will travel through Chicago to Louisville (where my wedding will be held) and cross paths.

Just found this post and I love it! We are also getting married July 3, 2011. Lots of out of town guests and having the wedding in Rochester, NY– so the weather is always unpredictable (our wedding will still be inside!). Are you guys doing anything holiday-related? We’re going to have sparklers and our colors are navy, red (shoes!) and light blue.

@ spiffykatie — we’re doing sparklers too! Our venue is on the water, and I’m keeping my fingers crossed for some fireworks from the town. lol

I just booked my venue for July 2, 2011. Before I read this post, I was REALLY worried that everyone would be annoyed that I chose a holiday weekend. I’m feeling a lot better about it now!

I am trying for July 3rd because of the extended weekend my family can travel and we can celebrate in downtown Chicago without having to worry about entertaining everyone (lol….less stress)
