This comes from our reader Amanda who’s friend got married on July 3rd, a Monday! And a counterpoint from someone named Jeani.
I have friends who got married on July 3 (a Monday) because they stupidly and naively thought that everybody would have a 4-day weekend, what with July 4 being on a Tuesday. I was really upset because I had to work that day and I couldn’t go. I have held a lot of different jobs, and I have NEVER worked anywhere that gives people off the day before or after July 4. What the hell were these people thinking? You’re right: holiday weddings can backfire, depending on the holiday.
Wow how funny that people get so worked up about things. Who really cares whether people get married on a Holiday. Get over it. And for all those who are getting married on the 4th may you have the wedding you want and don’t listen to all these miserable people who have nothing better to do but belittle and humiliate others.
