    I think most people would be cool with a New Year’s Eve wedding (it is, after all, the ultimate party day). And this is coming from a girl whose birthday is 12/31. I wouldn’t mind sharing my birthday to go party at a wedding.

    Christmas would be much more intrusive for people to have to change their plans.

    The only thing you’d really have to consider (which is totally dependent on where you live) is potential blizzards.

    ETA: In all honesty, if I were invited to a midweek wedding, I probably wouldn’t come if it involved traveling/taking time off from work.  Not everyone gets the week between Christmas and New Year’s off.

    Late December is going to be hard no matter what you choose. Maybe try early December if you can, like before Christmas. Those dates people still may be traveling for Christmas so yeah…

    NYE,   then at midnight you can start the new year together.  and every year,  there will be a massive celebration where-ever you are in the world.  it’ll be like everyone knows its your anniversary…….every one is happy on NYE,  and friends kiss,  and shake hands and laugh with strangers……NYE  is a nice day of the year.

    I chose New Years Eve.

    Depending on how close I was to the person, there is a good chance I would not attend a christmas or christmas eve wedding.

    I actually choose a day mid week before christmas. My family is already voicing concerns but I feel the day is only 1 day out for them but its a day I will be celebrating for a life time so I choose a date that was meaniful for us instead of convient for others.

    I would suggest pick a date you can be happy with years from now celebrating as your anniversary 🙂

    I chose 12/30, a nice Friday wedding before a crazy NYE weekend! =)

    I think new years eve would be great, not everyone has grand plans for that day and weddings make for great parties. I would totally go to a new years eve wedding 🙂

    Most people do have to work those weekdays between Christmas and New Year’s Eve/Day.  Also, most people want to spend the holidays with family so the last two weeks of the year are IMO the worst time of year to plan a wedding.  However, lots of people would really enjoy having a special event to attend on New Year’s Eve.  I think that date would be your best bet.

    I am sorry, but unless you were local and we were very close, none of those dates would work for me. The dates that you have listed are reserved for our immediate family, so depending on how close to you I was, I would have to send my regrets and a card/gift in my place.

    Yea, I gotta say, unless we were really close friends and your wedding was quite close by I wouldn’t go to any of these unless it was a crazy year and I seriously had no other plans. Sorry, but weddings are generally not that fun. I guess if I absolutely had to pick I’d go with the Friday before New Years Eve or the evening of New Years Day.

    NYE for sure!! What better excuse for a great party. My friends were all trying to convince Fiance and I to get married on NYE but I live in Canada and it’s usually blizzard here at that time. I am not down with the cold and snow.

    NYE = good. Anything Christmas? No. I wouldn’t be there unless you were family or like, my best friend. My mom’s bday is Christmas Eve and Christmas is just … untouchable in my family. I would respect that as much as possible. New Year’s Eve is a party day anyways! I like it.

    Christmas is a really big family holiday, so I’d imagine people like your friends and distant relatives already have plans for it with their immediate famiily. And most people probably are working the week in between. New. year’s eve is more of a “party” holiday, so going to a wedding party would be really fun and a way to celebrate with lots of people.
