I want to get some feedback about having a wedding on Wed, July 3. I know it's a weekday which can be odd but does it make it better given that the next day is a holiday?
This is a 1-day event and there are no other ceremonies such as sangeet planned. Half of my guests are a 5 hour drive away and the other half are local to the city. A few are international for whom the day choice should not matter. On July 3, I plan to have the ceremony at 4:30pm but if local folks don't want to take the day off, they can simply join in at the reception which starts at 6:30pm
Doing this vs a July 4 event saves me 20% of the total wedding cost. What do you guys think? Folks can get up late the next morning and choose to drive back back on July 4 or simply take that Friday off too and make it an extended weekend (lots of local relatives where they can stay)
