Me and my fiance want to get married on May 4th, 2015. May 4th is a special day for him, it is his mother's birthday and since she is no longer with us, using that day will be like having her there and means a lot to him. HOWEVER, May 4th is a monday... Since it's a monday a lot of the people we want to come will not be able to make it because of work, and I can understand that. What we are thinking about doing is having a ceremony on the Saturday before (May 2nd) and then on monday we would go to the courthouse and make it official by getting the license there and having the JP marry us then so we can have that day.
I have no idea what to do about the "wedding" ceremony since technically it's really not a wedding. Which also gives me more freedom to be a little more creative , but I can't seem to think about anything.
