How to handle a wedding around a holiday

While summer and fall are the most popular times of year to get married, couples can tie the knot whenever they choose, including on holidays.
Holiday weddings tend to stray from the norm, and that can make for a memorable night for couples and their guests. For example, couples who choose to get married on Halloween may encourage their guests to arrive and celebrate in costume, making for a unique experience for all in attendance. But planning weddings that take place on a holiday or holiday weekend may require a little extra effort.
