I'll preface this post by saying that my fiance and I JUST got engaged and have not finalized our wedding date yet. We're only considering and not yet married to a Monday wedding yet (hardy har har, bad pun).
Anyways, one of my fiance's first ideas for our wedding is to have it on the anniversary of our first date (he's good at remembering things like that) which would be April 16, 2012. Only problem is... that's a Monday. Now, I'm a novice at weddings but that already seems problematic.
I'm scared that a lot of guests might not come since the wedding wouldn't on a weekend, so I asked my parents for advice and they gave completely conflicting opinions. My mother said it was a bad idea and that I would only get married on a weekend, my dad liked the sentiment of the date and said that people will work around it (and would also appreciate the opportunity of a long weekend). Also, I'm sure vendor rates would be cheaper too.
So, what do you all think? I personally like the idea of having the wedding on our already-existing anniversary, but would absolutely NOT want to go with that idea if it means that a good amount of our loved ones won't show up.
