I had never even heard of this possibly being rude or an imposition until I came on this forum. I’ve been to a couple weddings on long weekends and thought it was helpful having the extra day! Especially because then I could spend more time with my out of town family who I rarely see. I think this is only an issue for people who have long standing yearly plans on the same weekend every year.

We actually picked a date without realizing it was a long weekend. But I think with enough notice to guests long weekends are easier for them.

missimagination :  Our wedding is Labor Day weekend of 2018, Sept 1. My parents had that concern but I never did; to me, it’s almost better, because people will already have an extra day off. So they don’t need to use as much leave from work to get there and enjoy themselves. Once I explained it that way my parents were like “oh…I guess you’re right” haha. I don’t think it’s rude at all. The people who want to be there will be there. We plan to send out Save the dates next month and have invites out by December I’d assume so that’s a full 9 months for people to plan. Do what’s right for you. The rest will work itself out.

missimagination :  if you have lots of guests flying in and staying in hotels then it is good to he aware that the cost of hotel and flights gets more expensive. 

Otherwise it should be fine. An invite isn’t a summons so if guests dislike the idea they can always decline.
