Here is some ideas why it’s a great date to have a Thanksgiving weekend wedding. It’s one of my favorite holidays. Family gathering and eating and it’s a time to be thankful for everything in your life. Is it also a great day to have a wedding? Let’s have a look. You have Family and friends gathering together. Everyone is home anyway for the Thanksgiving holiday so why not?
Why you should choose a Thanksgiving wedding
We love the idea of a Thanksgiving wedding with a long holiday weekend to celebrate and spend time with family and friends. If you’re getting married during Thanksgiving weekend, you don’t have to have a wedding that’s all about Turkey day. It’s still a fall wedding and how they choose a color palette that effortlessly flow from the food and drinks being served. And the venue and styles. Fall is part of Thanksgiving and you just can’t help certain things that bring all the holidays together. So what’s the benefit of having your wedding on Thanksgiving Weekend? I say everything!
As a guest what are your thoughts on having a wedding over the Thanksgiving holiday?
Well, a downside for sure is Air travel is expensive during thanksgiving and I wouldn’t want to deal with any holiday traffic. Plus it’s a huge family holiday. I agree this wouldn’t be fun for a guest to travel. And it’s not the summer when the weather maybe nice someone or not so nice if it’s in Arizona where it’s really hot. But like so many Western states the weather can be really nice in AZ for a wedding and vacation especially if you live in the mid-west or back East where it can get really cold. So this all depends on the location of the wedding and how much the travel expense is but I get it.
So is having a Thanksgiving Wedding a bad time?
Major holidays are usually a pretty bad idea for weddings because traveling is usually very expensive and inconvenient for out of town guests and this includes driving on holiday weekends. Also many venues and caterers may already have events booked and they may even charge more for working on these holidays. But a Thanksgiving wedding may not be so bad because of family members traveling back home and being around family anyway. I’m no expert but I can see the good and bad in the Holiday weekend.
I would have a wedding on Thanksgiving weekend.
Personally I don’t see any reason why this is a bad date to have a wedding. We are our own worst critics. This is a beautiful time of year, and you have family and friends who would love it. I hope you keep this wedding date if your thinking about it, Maybe even ask venues and caterers for a discount. Why not, the worse they can say it no. I know as a Men’s formal wear specialist I would welcome the business and be happy to work with any bride and groom or quinceanera party.
