    I would not go. I am Catholic and usually go to the Easter Vigil Mass (Saturday). I would also usually go to my hometown to be with my family or be with DH’s family.

    For me, it would sort of depend.  We spend Easter with my in-laws, who live about 45 minutes outside of my hometown, where most of my family still lives.  So if it was family/friends that lived in me/hubs general hometown area, sure I would attend, because it wouldn’t take away (too much) from our time with his family.

    But if it was anyone/anywhere else, it may be an issue.

    For someone close to me I would whether it was local or not.

    I would probably go. I’m not religious and I will use the extra days off (Good Friday/Easter Monday) to travel, but if my friend was getting married that weekend I’d be there.

    I haven’t spent easter with my family since I was little.

    In fact, just this past year I spent Easter on a plane flying back from NYC to London.

    Maybe. We spend Easter in my hometown which is 4 hours from where I live currently. So if it was held in (or near) my hometown, I would probably go, but likely not if it was where I live now.

    We’re not too big on the whole celebration of Easter. We do it fairly casually, just a bit of a lunch or small dinner with bits and pieces of the families. So we wouldn’t skip a heartbeat to RSVP yes to a local wedding the day before. However, I can’t say whether or not we would go if it was further away.

    Unless it was someone really closely related to me, definitely not.

    Yeah, Easter isn’t a national hoiday so I don’t think it should matter. Besides, the holiday is on Sunday and your event is on Saturday. Unless you have a large number of super religious people I don’t think it’d be a problem.

    I always go to Saturday night weddings.  Doesn’t matter what’s happening Sunday.

    I’d go if I were local.  We usually do a family dinner on Easter Sunday.

    If it were local, or a close family member I’d do my best to attend. But Easter plans would be a factor in my decision.

    It would depend on who it was and how close to them I was. My parents just both had to miss an Easter weekend wedding because my mother is very involved in our church. If it had been for a relative she might have gone but it was family friends.

    I always go home for Easter to go to church and be with family, so for me, it would have to be an extremely close friend, otherwise I’d have to decline.
