Newly engaged and new around here, but browsing for some insights and this seems like a great place to come for honest input.
We are planning a wedding for the Fall of 2020, and not really willing to budge on the time of year. I've always envisioned getting married in the Fall and it's my favorite season. I'm not up for planning a wedding quickly enough for Spring (before it gets hot in NC), and want to avoid the heat of summer at all costs.
So, this brings me to my predicament. We found a venue we LOVE. Their only fall 2020 Saturday (almost all of our guest will be out of state, so we'd prefer to keep it to a Sat. to limit the time people need to take off from work) date available is October 31. I am definitely not into Halloween, and do not want a Halloween themed wedding. Our immediate families don't care much about Halloween, so not a scheduling issue for them. Is it totally bogus to plan a wedding on Halloween and more or less totally ignore the holiday?
A few other notes, not many of our guests have young kids, but that is a slight concern. Most single or newly married couples without kids yet, or older couples with grown children. I don't have any Halloween-obsessed friends, but I am curious what the average, kind-of indifferent to Halloween guest would think about attending a (no costume) wedding on Halloween?
Chances are I am overthinking this (typical!), and I know at the end of the day it's our wedding, but some non-biased input would be awesome. THANK YOU!
