    People will absolutley show up.  I think you just need to make sure you do it later. Everyone I know takes their dad to breakfast on fathers day.

    I think you should be fine; my wedding is going to end up being the Saturday before Father’s Day and I asked a bunch of people and my dad if they thought this was ok, and all agreed that it wouldn’t matter much. For some reason, Mother’s Day seems to be celebrated more (at least where I grew up) so I know that would have been an issue. But I agree with mwitter80.. make sure it’s in the afternoon!

    My cousin got married about 10 yrs ago on Father’s Day and it was certainly not a big deal and definetly not something people talk about now.

    I think if it’s in your budget to have your wedding on Father’s Day then you should have it on Father’s Day.  If it’s something that really bothers you, you could always have a special moment during the reception in honor of all the father’s there.  Maybe a dance or a special cake?

    Mine is the weekend before yours (also on a Sunday) so we discussed this as well, as most of our guests are in from Out of Town also. I guess I just don’t see Father’s Day as being a huge event that people would have conflicts around.. we would have done it that weekend instead had there not been a Pirate’s Festival happening in our ceremony location that day!! Surprised

    I think you will have the same problem with travel whether it’s Father’s Day or not. So if your guests would come on a Sunday they will come even if it’s Father’s Day.

    We got married this year the day before father’s day.  This year our first anniversary is on fathers day.

    We have a flexible family.  My dad won’t care if we celebrate the day of or the week after, so it will be easy for us!

    We went to a wedding on fathers day…. It wasnt a big deal… only one person I know seemed to care and it was the best budget wise for the couple

    I got married on Mother’s Day; it was great!  People showed up and had a wonderful time, so I think you’ll be fine.  🙂
