Cupid’s Advice:

Many people point to the reasons to avoid holidays for your wedding, but there are also many good reasons to aim for one. Cupid has some ideas:

1. Built-in celebration: Take a page from Hefner and Harris, whose wedding reception was the Playboy Mansion’s annual New Year’s Eve celebration. Getting married on a holiday can mean much less planning.

2. You and other will remember the date: How many times do husbands get in trouble because they don’t remember the date of their anniversary? Well, getting married on a holiday may make sure that never happens.

3. Family/friends are already in town: Especially if you get married in your hometown, family and friends may already be coming home for the holidays and won’t have to make a separate trip for your wedding.
