List of Holidays in UK for 2018

If you just got engaged for the New Year’s Eve or Christmas, this is a very important list before you start searching for your big day date. Also, while you may be able to score a discounted rate from the venue to have your wedding on a Sunday night, since most people have the Monday holiday off, you’ll find that flights and hotel costs skyrocket on these weekends. Keep this in mind when picking one of these, as some guests may have to decline coming because of the extra travel costs. Also with this weekend you are at risk of getting more no RSVPs than usual as people like to use their long weekends for short trips.
