Easter wedding, staying over the night?

Sun Dec 12, 2010 10:49 am

Would you be upset at going to a destination wedding over the easter weekend?

So ceremony on Saturday, stay Saturday night and go home easter Sunday?

Just thinking that Easter might be a bit of a family weekend for some and they might not want to be away from home for Easter Sunday...

Your thoughts?

I don't think it would bother people going away for Easter, I think the only problem would be (depending on where it would be) is that flights and accommodation could be quite expensive.

Its in driving distance, (about 2 hours) and we will be covering the accommodation costs so i hope that sweetens the deal for them! Lol

Personally, I think I wouldn't like being away from home during the Easter weekend because of church obligation and every year I've got to attend masses daily from Holy Thursday right up to Easter Sunday, but that is just me. So it really depends on how your guests are.

I really think it depends. We usually do a family thing so although if it was a close friend I'd still go, it would make me miss out on my normal traditions.

Easter is not a big deal in my family so I would be more than happy to attend a wedding with the arrangements you spoke about.

I think its fine but just keep in mind that there is a good chance you will have guests say no because of the date. For some people, especially with kids, easter is the best time to go on a small holiday and being such a busy time of year they book a year in advance so for those people they wouldnt come to your wedding even if they wanted to only because they have already spent money on their holiday IYKWIM. Otherwise those people that really care about you and want to be part of your day wont care if they dont do their 'normal' traditional easter thing.

hey,
my sil had her wedding on north straddie, easter weekend just gone :D alot of people turned up for it too. I think as long as the guests have plenty of warning, they could find cheap enough flights, accommodation, etc.

It depends on your guests.

My family and my FH's family are quite religious and Easter is the most important holiday in our religion, so we absolutely wouldnt. Just as an example.
