Guest Complaint #2: You picked a bad day.

We've had weddings on every holiday, from Mother's Day to Super Bowl Sunday (yes, that counts as a holiday). You must realize that we'd rather be with our moms or watching the game instead of going to your wedding on those days. And please don't ruin our holiday weekends. We get it; you can save a bundle if you get hitched on the Sunday before Memorial Day, but maybe we'd like to be vacationing then. At the very least, please don't get married on some random Tuesday night. That means we have to take off two days from work -- one day for the wedding, the other to recuperate -- just to go! Let us use our vacation days for vacations.
