***LISTENER QUESTION*** 

We are getting married in 2019 and I originally wanted to do a late September or early October date because we both love the fall. But just recently I started thinking about August 31, 2019, which would be Labor Day weekend. The venue we want is kind of out in the middle of the woods along a river in Oregon and they let us have it from Friday-Sunday! We both have A LOT of family and friends and I thought it would be fun for everyone to camp and do more of a whole celebration weekend. There’s swimming, fishing, bonfires, horseback riding (through the venue), and hiking. Do you think this would be a fun idea, or would people be annoyed that a wedding is taking over their Labor Day weekend? I know some families have traditions for this weekend.
