I think that’s a halfways decent time for a wedding. People from out of town have plenty of time to travel in, don’t have to book off work… Maybe that’s just me, but I wouldn’t mind it!

We have the civic holiday here at the beginning of August and our wedding is the last Sunday in July, so I felt a bit weird about people needing to book time off right before the holiday… but we’re aiming low on our guest list, so in all honesty if people aren’t willing to book a day off or do a bit of driving to get to the wedding, all the easier on us! lol

I’m sure it will be fine.  I’d definitely be excited for a July 5th wedding!

I love weddings on 3 day weekends!

People shouldn’t give you a problem. And if they know they have a wedding to attend the next day, they should control their drinking on the 4th.

If most people are local, I think it would be fine.

But otherwise, your out of town guests will either have to travel on the 3rd and make a 5 day weekend, or they will have to travel on the 4th itself. I know its not Christmas, but I’d be a little irritated if I had to spend July 4th at an airport or all day in the car, while family and friends are drinking and BBQing.

One of my best friends got married the Saturday after Thanksgiving and most guests had to come from out of town- it was great! I missed Thanksgiving with my family, but I got to go someplace warm and I was with friends- so missing one holiday wasn’t the end of the world!
