Hi, first post, I've searched around but dont see this question already so I hope this is an ok place to ask.
My fiance and I have been together since highschool, we plan on getting married on our 10 year anniversary. Both to keep the date and because I'm a little ocd and like even numbers so whenever we have a wedding anniversary it will just be plus 10 to how long we've been together. The date is Tuesday June 24, 2014.
The wedding dates section on this site says that both Tuesday and June are lucky days, but I'm worried a lot of guests won't want to take the time off to attend. I plan on doing an evening ceremony, sunset on a yacht probably, and most guests are local, but even then they may come back saying "I have to work the next day, and could maybe stop by for a couple hours" or not at all. My family is small enough as it is, and I don't want to have an empty reception hall.
Would it be wierd to have the ceremony on the Tuesday and the reception the following Saturday? Out of town guests would have to stay longer, and we couldn't leave right away to our honeymoon. It also feels like I care more about people getting there then they care about sharing our special day. Shouldn't anyone close to us make that effort?
I don't know if it's to much to ask, or if I should just plan what I want and whoever comes, comes.
Other options that crossed my mind:
-Getting legally married on the Tuesday at city hall, and having the whole thing the following Saturday, informing people that our real date will always be the 24th
-Having a destination wedding (but I don't like that idea because most of my close family doesn't have that kind of money to travel)
Thanks for your input
