I wanted to know what everyone thought about the fact that I was going to possibly have my wedding Thanksgiving weekend (possibly, because I haven't actually booked anything yet). It will be the Saturday after Thanksgiving. A few people said that it's a wonderful idea because they're already off from work and get to go away from the cold weather (we're NYers) for a long weekend. Other people said that Thanksgiving is a "family holiday" and that it would be unfair to ask people to go away that week. I did suggest that people can come the Wed night before, I would have a welcome dinner on Thanksgiving for those who could make it and for those who cannot, they could come on Fri or Sat for just the ceremony on Sat. There would also be a brunch on Sun morning for those who missed the welcome dinner. Technically, it's still the off season so the flights and hotels are cheaper than if I were to do it in Dec or in Jan/Feb 2014, so I thought I was being considerate picking a day that most people would not have to request time off from work and when the prices are cheaper.
What is everyone's opinion of this?
Also, are there any other Nov 2013 brides out there??
