2016 Wedding Dates To Avoid In Cleveland

2016 Wedding dates to avoid in Cleveland

If you’re planning a 2016 wedding in Cleveland you might already have your date picked out. But if not, here are some dates to consider avoiding:

  • Sports events – If a) your families are major sports fans, b) your wedding is during your favorite sports season, and c) you don’t want your family and friends glued to a TV screen (or their phones) watching a game all night, then you may seriously want to consider avoiding the dates of major sports events – if you can help it. (Can I get an O-H…?) 
  • U.S. national holidays – While you might be tempted by the extra day (or extra ambiance of holiday decor), holiday wedding services often come with higher price tags and may also prove challenging for traveling guests. Don’t let that stop you if you want a Halloween wedding (because Halloween weddings rock!) or a three day weekend wedding – just beware the consequences! (That sounded way spookier in my head.) 

January 16-18, 2016 – Martin Luther King Jr. Day (long weekend)

February 13-15, 2016 – Presidents’ Day (long weekend) and Valentine’s Day

May 7-8, 2016 – Mother’s Day (weekend)

June 18-19, 2016 – Father’s Day (weekend)

July 1-4, 2016 – Independence Day (long weekend)

September 3-5, 2016 – Labor Day (long weekend)

September 11, 2016 – Patriot Day (Sunday)

October 29-30, 2016 – Halloween (weekend)

November 24-27, 2016 – Thanksgiving (long weekend)

December 31-January 1, 2016 – New Year’s Eve (weekend)

  • Religious holidays – As above, these holidays may incur additional expenses, travel delays, and limited availability. Additionally, many venues and vendors are closed in observance of religious holidays, so inquire with your preferred vendors before finalizing your date.
  • The Republican National Convention in Cleveland – July 18-21, 2016. Hotels from Cleveland all the way to Akron are booked – or quickly booking – for those dates, and in some cases for the few days preceding or following the convention. If you haven’t booked your wedding during this time frame, it’s a good one to avoid in Northeast Ohio.
