Getting married on national holidays is a long-standing trend that continues to thrive in the wedding industry; this will this make any future holidays that extra bit special, given that it doubles as your anniversary!
This coming weekend is mother’s day, and although it is not one of the most celebrated holidays, it can also be a great day to get married. For those sentimental couples out there, it acts as a truly unique gift for both the mother of the bride and the mother of the groom, and allows you to really make them feel like they are an important part of your special day. For those who have experienced the loss of a mother or loved one, this can also act as a beautiful way to honor those who are no longer with us.
However, getting married on mother's day also has its drawbacks. As this is such a personal holiday which many people celebrate within families, many of your guests may have other commitments and therefore be unable to attend your wedding. It is also important to consider the heightened cost of venues and vendors, who will almost certainly hike their prices given the fact that for them, this would be a working holiday. Finally, and possibly most crucially, the cost of flowers is almost triple to regular weekends, as the demand is huge on this date.
As with any holiday weddings, it is important to consider the positives and the negatives of getting married on a day that is already weighted with so much significance and meaning for many other people.
