“Ever wonder what it’s like to get married on a holiday? A couple of years ago I went to a wedding on the 4th in Montana. The day after we went whitewater rafting. It was a blast! Low key, fewer people, and you have more time to chat with people the day after the wedding when all of the big day stuff is over!”

Many engaged couples choose to celebrate their special day on holidays. This blog will list some of the most popular holidays for weddings.
Labor Day is traditionally observed on the first Monday in September. Labor Day weekend is one of the most popular holidays for weddings. Many couples choose to have their wedding during an extended weekend because their guests have extra days off work to travel. Their guests can relax and enjoy the festivities.
Memorial Day is celebrated on the last Monday in May. Memorial Day weekend is a popular wedding date since the weather is nice, guests have plenty of time to travel, and for military families it can be a special time to remember those who have served.
Columbus Day is another popular wedding holiday. Columbus Day occurs on the second Monday in October each year. About 40% of weddings take place in the fall. The temperate weather makes it the perfect month to have an outdoor ceremony. Also, brides and grooms can create a beautiful color palette with the vibrant fall colors. Finally, the three-day weekend is another reason couples choose to have their wedding on Columbus Day weekend.
Fourth of July
If a couple wants to celebrate their wedding during a historical moment, a Fourth of July wedding is extremely beautiful and patriotic. The best part of having a wedding on Fourth of July are the fireworks. It is important to find a venue where there is a view of the local fireworks. Some other benefits of having a wedding in July are the warm weather and summer break.
New Year’s Eve/New Year’s Day
What better way to start off the new year than tying the knot with your soulmate? Sparklers, champagne, and confetti make the most magical New Year’s Eve wedding. Many couples choose to have a New Year’s Eve wedding because it is one of the most glamorous nights of the year. Plus, their friends and family will have the next day off. Another perk is that you and your spouse will never have trouble forgetting your anniversary!
