I think it would be okay but you need to notify people early so that they don’t make other plans and they can book flights early so that they don’t cost too much.

I’m getting married on Sunday of Labor Day weekend this year, and a few people weren’t 100% happy because they had travel plans. Some of them aren’t coming. However, we knew the date wasn’t an issue for all of our friends and our close relatives. So just know your crowd. If there is a good reason to get married Saturday, as your mom seems to imply, maybe do the Saturday wedding. However, I think it would be a bad idea to have the bachelor party the night before a wedding. So if you end up doing the Saturday wedding, you can have the parties a few weeks prior closer to your home.

I think this will work well. My only thought is that, to the extent you can, plan either hosted or non-hosted events the whole weekend. A weekend wedding can be a huge hit if it feels organized and easy on the guests.

Lassroyale :  

Lassroyale : Hi, I’m getting married in Las Vegas over Labor Day Weekend. I, too, will have my wedding Sunday. We’re arriving Thursday. Family arrives Friday. We’re going to gave a cocktail meet and greet (the two families introductions). Saturday morning is brinch. Afternoon rehearsal. Evening bachelorette party (my sister is planning). Sunday morning bridal spa relaxation time. Afternoon I’m hosting bridesmaids luncheon while we have a Glam Squad do our hair and makeup. My groom will be hosting a groomsmen “casino” poker luncheon in another location. 5pm limo pickup. 7:30 I do’s. Reception: Eating and dancing till midnight then shuttles transport all guests back to hotels. Monday breakfast (whoever has late flights or staying till Tuesday.

 

Any advice on the crowds? Heat? Restaurant and bar availability? Any brunch recommendations? (Avaerage age mid-40’s)

I understand it’s been seven years since you got married and crowds are expected to be much worse.

 

Thsnk you,

I’m there! but make sure there’s enough recooperation time for those that party too hard, or you are going to have some tore up looking folks at the wedding.

Sunday over a holiday weekend is just fine, especially if people are flying in and can make a weekend out of it. I’ve gone to many weddings where it’s on a Sunday of a holiday weekend and didn’t find it a problem.

I’d give yourself (and guests) Saturday to recover!
