A quick question.

So, Scott and I had set a tentative date for June 20th, 2009, but I’m going to have to take a Spanish class that doesn’t end until June 24th. And I don’t want to get married while I’m still in school. And then we were thinking about June 27th, but do I really want to get married the same week I’m taking exams? No, too stressful. So we thought about the NEXT weekend, which happens to be July 4th.

My question is; do you think that’s a good idea? I mean, it’s definitely a memorable date, and everyone who is coming in from out of town will have a day off of work that they could use to travel. And we could have fireworks! And nothing goes better with fireworks than barbecue. But then again, a lot of people like to go to the beach and things like that on July 4th, and I don’t want to mess up anyone’s plans. (Even though my wedding is going to be more awesome than anything else. Just saying.) And who knows if the owner of the reception site will even let us have fireworks?

So, there are the pros and cons. If you can think of any more, let me know. And tell me what you think!

And no, I wouldn’t change the wedding colors to red, white, and blue.

    I think since it’s so far in advance, that people would be able to come. (Then again I don’t usually travel on the 4th)
    Red White and Blue LMAO

    Great day for it - makes coming in from out of town easier because of the extra days off to travel/see the area.

    Plus an automatic BBQ on your anniversary is the greatest thing ever.

    I have no objections to it. Last year I didn’t even realize it was Independence Day until my parents called and told me. lol…:-D

    I just had a conversation with my colleagues about this yesterday, because I am going to a wedding on Saturday. I think it’s totally fine. A) Independence Day happens every year, B) What better way than to celebrate it with your nearest and dearest, C) I agree with Jaye because there’s the extra travel day.

    And off-topic: I met a guy last night who is getting married at the Barn at Valhalla in April. He says he’s very excited about the location and that it’s a lovely site!
