So I am recently engaged, 2 weeks, and already have a venue that I love and want to book.
We looked at the place this weekend and they have the Friday of Labor Day weekend available, September 4th.
I am far too anxious to wait until 2016. I have been with my fiancé for 5 years and have practically known him my entire life.
I am getting some mixed reviews from family members about the date being that it is a Friday, no less a Friday on Labor Day weekend.
I normally wouldn't mind getting married on a Friday considering its significantly less than Saturday, however I am concerned that a lot of people will not come.
Most of my family and friends are local to the venue, however we do have family that would be traveling out of NYC.
My fiance's brother and his family ( 6 children!) live in California and they are giving us some grief about the cost of plane tickets that week.
Is it too much to ask those people to request off on a Friday or leave early from work in order to make the wedding?
Church would be around 3-4:00 ( fully knowing a lot people will not be attending because of the date and time ) and cocktail hour to begin around 6:00.
Feedback? Anyone else in this situation?
