- Wedding: July 2014
Hi all, I’m sure this has been discussed before, but me and my significant other have been trying to decide between the 4th and the 5th for a week or so now. The place we want to have the reception is available both nights, and is the same price for both. We are planning to have a DW/OOT wedding (11 hour drive from “home”, but many friends live away from “home” anyway). So being almost all people out of town, we think having it on July 4th (not a big holiday for either of us) would allow more guests to come. The wedding is in a beach town (Charleston), and we think it would be fun for people to come and experience the city and ocean, which leads us to the question of the 4th or the 5th. If we have it on the 4th, everyone could go to the beach on Saturday or explore the city. If we have it on the 5th, it would allow people to travel the 4th (if needed) and not waste a vacation day.
Long story short, if you were decent friends/family with the bride or groom, would if be better for you for them to have it on Friday the 4th or Saturday the 5th? Any other advice is greatly appreciated! (We would send std’s out as soon as we decide on this date!)
