Bad, but not the worst. The two biggest “violations” for weddings are non-Saturday main event and non-open bar. Any other day is a middle finger to traveling guests (some exceptions like no traveling guests, Sunday morning wedding, etc.) and a cash/ticket bar is tacky/rude — just have no bar if alcohol isn’t important

Counter point, love a Friday wedding. Take Friday off, then still have 2 good days to chill out.

Honestly, I like weddings on more casual holiday weekends (Memorial Day, Labor Day). My plans for those weekends aren’t super set/don’t have a ton of tradition that I would miss, and I get more time to make a weekend out of the wedding. My best times at weddings have been when I’ve been able to hang out with the other guests for a day or two before or after, instead of rushing in for the event and then leaving.

I mean that wouldn’t bother me either (on par with Memorial Day and Labor Day for me) but to each their own🤷🏽‍♀️

Wasn’t heartbroken when an acquaintance got married and didn’t invite me. It was in Jacksonville, during the FL / GA game. Both sets of families and friends were Gator fans. Pretty much everyone was in the bar for most of the reception watching the game. My friends who went were not appreciative of my texting pics from the stands.

In Jacksonville it is absolutely a holiday weekend. It’s also Halloween weekend.

My friend is doing a New Years wedding. Bummed I’m going to miss seeing my family 😪

One of my friends had their engagement party during Memorial Day weekend and the wedding was new years…was annoyed but went with it. Certainly would have rather been at the lake Memorial Day weekend and doing anything else on New Years.
