My name is Elle, and it's very nice to meet all of you digitally
My fiancee and I just got engaged like 2 weeks ago, and we are very excited!
Our wedding planning needs to start ASAP as we will be getting married in Israel. My fiancee's entire family lives there, and I have a lot of family there as well. We will be visiting Israel in January and hope to find a venue for an October-November wedding.
I obviously understand that with a destination wedding in a place like Israel (far away, expensive to get to, etc), a lot of my friends will not be able to come.
My question is: If we plan on a Novemeber wedding, should we plan it over Thanksgiving? On one hand, Thanksgiving is a holiday where a lot of people want to be at home/are expected to be at home. On the other hand, it's a time when a lot of people have off, perhaps maing it easier for people to come.
What do y'all think? Keep in mind that I'm from the South--so many of my friends come from traditional families (for my family, as they are immigrants, Thanksgiving was not as big of a deal).
Thanks so much!
