memorial day thoughts

I hope you’re enjoying the beautiful weather, and taking a well deserved rest from the pressures of the world, your upcoming wedding, and, well, your upcoming wedding.

We were part of several this weekend, and it made me think about the implications of having a wedding ceremony or reception on a holiday weekend. On the plus side, more of your guests may be able to attend, especially if you’re planning a “destination” wedding at the shore, or a resort site. On the, well, not quite “minus” side, but under the category of “things to think about”, there are the implications of those holidays. If you have a veteran in your family, for memorial day, it might be a lovely gesture to recognize that in some way either at your ceremony or reception. Your New Jersey Wedding Celebrant (smooth, eh?) can help you decide on a gracious way to do that.
New Year’s, Valentines’ Day, Mothers’ Day, even Halloween; these are all days that mean various things to different couples, but bringing those days into the conversation can add rich meaning to your celebration.
