Have you Ever thought about having your weddings on a major holiday?
If you have a lot of guests coming for a long holiday weekend, consider finding any festive parades, lightings, fireworks, or concerts that may be going on in the area. This way your guests have a multitude of options to choose from and still get in the holiday spirit.
Do your research! Often times vendors will increase their prices in order to be compensated for working on a holiday. Caterers will need to pay their employees holiday wages and the cost of flowers is notorious for increasing during the holidays. Keep your budget in mind and make sure your love for the holidays does not overshadow your bank account.
