Plan a holiday weekend wedding with ease

Sep 21, 2016 | Wedding Photography

Planning the Big Day can be a very stressful affair if you don’t make sure to do things the right way. From the large number of things you will have to handle to the pressure associated with such an important moment, there’s a wide range of factors to take into consideration when you start to plan your wedding day.

How do you move beyond this and plan an entire holiday weekend wedding? How do you make this as least stressful and as smooth as possible? We have some tips for you – so read on and find out more.


  • Start as early as possible. The sooner you start planning this great event in your life, the more likely it is that you will actually find the dream venue and the most amazing wedding vendors for your Big Day. What’s more, starting early also allows you to let your guests know of the event well-ahead of time, so that they can make all necessary preparations.
  • Plan activities for all three days. You don’t want your guests to get bored during the holiday weekend, so planning some fun activities should come as a must. For example, you could organize a dinner party or cocktail party for their arrival and a special brunch for the last day of the wedding weekend too.
  • You can incorporate the holiday theme into the wedding. For instance, a 4th of July wedding theme will work wonderfully if you want to plan your wedding during that weekend – and it can definitely add an extra dash of memorability and uniqueness to your entire event.
