    I wouldn’t mention it on the invite. I think people will figure it out before they RSVP, even if they don’t realize it immediately. If you really feel like you want to point it out, put it on your website, but I don’t think it’s necessary. Besides, as a mother myself, I can’t imagine Mother’s Day weekend changing my RSVP status for someone’s wedding.

    I’d just put it on the wedding website as a reminder. You’re right that some people may just RSVP because it’s your wedding before they realize that it’s Mother’s Day. If there are specific people that you’re most concerned about, have a family reach out via word of mouth

    I didn’t put anything about it on the invitations. I do plan to make toasts, honor my mother and Future Mother-In-Law, etc. But, I really don’t think mother’s day would deter many people from attending.

    I’m a May 11, with an intimate guest list. So I pretty much had conversations with all of my Out of Town guests when I set the date, long before invites were sent out. Part of the discussion was that I understood if they didn’t want to travel on Mother’s Day weekend. 

    Luckily, most of them are choosing to celebrate Mother’s Day weekend by taking a long weekend, coming to my wedding, and then exploring the city for Saturday and Sunday before going home, making it extra special rather than extra annoying.
