Me too!  I hadn’t seen too many bees with our date.  It was kind of the only weekend we could do it but I think it will be nice to give people an extra travel day.  I also like the fact that our anniversary will usually be around Memorial Day so it makes it easy to go on a weekend trip.

So has anyone come across things costing more since it’s Memorial Day?  So far I haven’t, but I’ve only booked the venue.

@Natalieh86: I haven’t either, we booked venue and photographer so far.

I’m planning on a Memorial Day wedding too!  We’re hoping to do Sunday May 27, since the Monday holiday will give people a day to recover.  We have a lot of Out of Town guests, so I think a holiday weekend is the best option.

We chose the Sunday, May 27th day as well.  The 10% discount on the reception venue doesn’t hurt either.  So far I have not come across any price increases except for the hotel rooms.  Sorry guests but the lowest our room block could go is $259/night.  Eek.

We are actually getting married on the Friday night (May 25th) of Memorial Day Weekend. We are having a smaller wedding, and the minimum guests were too high on Saturday.  I was a little worried about the Friday night, but in surveying my guests it seems like we are good to go! Anyone else on Friday night?

I picked Saturday the 26th without even realizing it was Memorial Day weekend! But it works out great! 🙂

@NoMoreStew: Yeah my choice of date was kind of by default . . but I think it’s going to work out well! And hopefully it’s easy for people to remember!

OMG!! @peachplum09: That is why we picked May 26th also! We have been dating since high school so I have been waiting for that date to be on a Saturday for 5 years! Hence the two and a half year engagement….

Hi Nay brides!  I am getting married Memorial Day Weekend / May 26th.  Family and friends are spread out so we figured a long weekend gave people more time and less stress.  I am glad to see that I am not alone in planning early too!
