If you live in a city like Washington DC, a marathon, a protest march, a convention or even a cultural festival can wreak havoc on your wedding day. Traffic can be a disaster; hotel rooms can sell out quickly; and airline seats will be at premium prices. This is not only a nuisance, it can affect the number of wedding guests who decide to attend your wedding.
Before you secure your venue, run your wedding date by a representative at your local tourism board or your local chamber of commerce. It’s one thing to compete with another wedding; it’s a completely different ballgame competing with a convention of 15,000.
If you are unsure how to reach your local convention and visitors bureau, check out this web site. This site has a directory of convention and visitors bureaus throughout the United States and Canada.
