Holiday Weekend Weddings.

Weddings. Love 'em? or Hate 'em?

That was the icebreaker question last weekend at cg.

I LOVE a good wedding. no really LOVE weddings. I dont' know what it is, I just do. It's a very special day. It's one of the biggest decisions and days in your life. I don't take it lightly.

However, what's up with the trend now to get married on a holiday weekend? Now weekends like Memorial Day and Labor day, not so much a big deal, everyone has that time off. Not to mention the fact that those weekends are made for getting together with friends and family yet aren't exclusive to close family.

But Thanksgiving?! I mean really. Isn't that a little selfish? Not everyone gets the time off to travel that weekend. It's a time to be with your immediate family. I happen to know of not one, but 2 weddings this year Thanksgiving weekend. (and one the weekend between Christmas and New Year's)

Yes, Thanksgiving is about being with your family, but come on....are you really supposed to take everyone else way from their close, immediate family? Now, I guess I should have said, that the 2 Thanksgiving weddings I know about are a couple of brides who have always been pretty selfish. So, maybe it's the perfect weekend for them to get married.

I realize that everyone doesn't think the same way I do. Yes, I believe it's selfish to get married Thanksgiving or Christmas weeken. It's my opionion.

OMG, I can't agree with you more. thanksgiving is about my family, my close immediate family, and maybe some extended family, you know the more the merrier! I would never even imagine getting married on such a holiday. Grrr, selfish people.

Speaking of holidays...I DO believe that the "Bartlow-Masino holiday dinner" should be an annual thing!
I'm thinking...this year YES!
