Easter Wedding
Has anyone heard of having a wedding the Saturday of Easter weekend? Would love to hear comments. Seems this might be the only day available for all vendors after the wedding was cancelled this April 25th, moved to Nov then venue had calendar issues so that date is out and now rescheduling to next year April.

    I’ve been a bridesmaid in a wedding on the Saturday before Easter and it was fine. The families weren’t too religious and my family aren’t big holiday people so I had no conflict. But it’s definitely a know your crowd thing. It wouldn’t work for me now because my husband is Jewish and Passover is the same week as Easter usually. But if your family and friends are okay with it I’d say go for it.

    Really depends. If your family/friends celebrate that day due to their religion they might not make your wedding.
    Also if you have people flying, remember that prices increase exponentially on holiday weekends. And if you live or the wedding is in a big city, remember that there could be a lot of traffic that day.
    Apart from that I’d say it’s fine. I would come to a wedding on Easter Sunday

    My wedding was supposed to be this Saturday, the day before Easter. Our RSVPs weren't affected at all, no one seemed to have any issues with attending on Saturday. It is a know your crowd thing and I'm not Christian so maybe my crowd is different than yours.

    I agree that it's a know your crowd thing. If you have any guests who are Jewish and observe Passover, then you would want to reach out to them individually because they will likely need to be provided with different food.

    Also, if your getting married at a church, they may not allow. My venue was scheduled Mother’s Day weekend and we had to end early so they could set up for brunch. Might be an issue for Easter.

    4/20/19 was our original choice until we realized it was the Saturday before Easter. We had a destination wedding and realized flights were crazy expensive and our guests likely had their own traditions—even the non-religious!

    Depends if most of the family and friends being invited are super religious. If not, I wouldn't worry about it. Also, since your wedding is having to be rescheduled due to the virus, I think many of your guests will understand.

    Depends on your guests. Know your crowd... Are they religious? Do they usually have plans on Easter? Note that some families don’t celebrate Easter but may use the day to get together with family and friends.

    Agree with all of the others. Going to a wedding on Easter Sunday wouldn't phase me in the slightest but if you have religious friends or other guests you may want to consider how it would impact them and if they would be willing to attend. I'm also not sure how having an Easter Sunday wedding would impact your choice or cost of vendors. I imagine this would vary regionally, with it being more difficult to appeal to vendors and guests in more religious parts of the country and being practically a non-issue in areas with high agnosticism and atheism.
