You’re a guest and you receive an invite for a wedding on the Saturday of Memorial Day weekend… how do you feel about it?
(Things to consider: only one couple (a Bridesmaid or Best Man and her FI) would be flying in, one family would be driving in from a boarding state, and everyone else is pretty local.)

It depends. If I have to travel, I do not like it. I was Maid/Matron of Honor in a memorial day wedding in which we had to travel to FL which is extremely popular that time of year. I easily spent $1000 just getting and staying there.
If it were local, I don’t think I would care as much as long as I had notice I would work it into my plans.

I really dislike weddings on long weekends because it ruins any chance I have of doing anything or going away.

I was in a memorial day wedding and my wedding is on labor day weekend, so obviously I feel fine about it 🙂 I’ve also gone to one other long weekend wedding, and I’ve loved them. Makes me feel like I can still go to the wedding, have a great time, and then have an extra day to rest up or travel around where the wedding is. To each their own though, I’m sure some people won’t be happy our wedding is on a holiday weekend. It’s up to them to decide.

We are getting married Saturday of Labor Day weekend this year. So far, we have not received any complaints even though most of the guests need to travel. We are still waiting on RSVPs, and I think some people will say no because they will have other holiday plans, but that’s what we expect choosing that day. Many of our friends are coordinating a vacation with our wedding.

We don’t usually do much on long weekends. All of our family and friends are local, and when we take actual vacations we can go anytime. So it wouldn’t bother me. Just make sure you give enough notice just in case!

I would have no problem with that at all.

We married on Sunday of Memorial Day weekend this year. It depends who you’re inviting. Most of our guests had to travel and were willing/able to incur the extra expense because of the holiday. Most were also happy to make it a little vacation or to be able to not have to take off work (I had one friend travel Friday night and Monday evening).
Some people won’t want to share their precious holiday weekend with you. Those people probably aren’t your family or close friends anyway.
