A tip from Martha Stewart Weddings (Fall 2011):
"If you decide to get married over an extended holiday weekend, book your wedding for a Sunday. Venue fees are less expensive, and guests will have Monday off to travel."
So true! Ours is the Sunday of Memorial Day Weekend 2012. The hotel gave us a 50% discount on the ballroom, and then threw 3 hotel rooms (one for us, one for my mom, and one for his parents), a free room the night before for the rehearsal dinner, and a free room the morning after for gift opening.
Also from this issue: tons of wedding dresses; an overview of floral styles; several gorgeous real weddings; three cute hairstyles (I'm thinking I might steal the braided knot); creative centerpiece ideas, and much more.
