Don't pick a bad date.
Of course you could pick Super Bowl Sunday for your wedding, but don't be surprised if some of the groomsmen look a little, um, distracted during the ceremony. Trust us, your guests will be way happier if you avoid major holidays or national events where they might already have plans. And double-check your community calendar just to make sure you won't be competing with any major events, like a homecoming parade or city festival.
