How to Choose your Wedding Day

Today we are going to talk about day of the week – which one to choose.

Weddings traditionally are held on a Saturday or Sunday, but now many venues offer discounts for couples to get married on a weekday.

Maybe the venue you love is booked out every weekend for the next few years? Couples struggling with their budgets also are opting to do this.

If you choose to have your wedding on a weekday, there is a genuine risk that people may not be able to get the time off work to be at your wedding.

Many guests may not be able to make it to the ceremony but after work can make it to the reception.

If you’re going to get married on a weekday, give people a bit more notice than you normally would so they can clear their work schedule and arrange the time off.

Weekday weddings are lovely, but your friends usually have to go to work the next day, unless you hold it on a Friday.

They will not have as much to drink and might be a little bit more subdued than if it was a Friday or Saturday night.

If you really want the big party with your friends and family, you may be better off sticking to a Friday or Saturday night.

Sunday weddings are beautiful, but they seem to be lower key, as your guests have to get up for work the next day.

You’ll find that your bar tab might not be quite as damaging to your pocket on a Sunday because your guests don’t want to be hung-over for work Monday.

If you’re going to have a Saturday night wedding, expect the bar tab to be rather large because it’s a Saturday night and people are going to let their hair down and drink plenty.

So, think carefully about what day you want to get married on. You should do it for you, but you still have to consider your guests and how it’s going to affect them.
