Ideally every bride would like to have a Saturday wedding, but popular venues are likely to be booked for every Saturday well after your planned wedding date so you’re stuck having to decide between a Friday or a Sunday. Well, here are some helpful tips to help you make the best decision for you and your guests!

Friday Wedding

  1. Good for in-town guests: If most of your guests are in-town they wouldn’t mind getting off of work early that day, and they wouldn’t have to leave your wedding early on a Sunday wedding to prepare for work the following Monday.
  2. Free weekend: Having your wedding on a Friday allows you to use the weekend to travel to your honeymoon destination then start your week to a relaxing Monday on the beach. And if your guests over-indulge at the bar, they have the whole weekend to recover!

Sunday wedding

  1. Good for out-of-town guests: If you’re having a destination wedding or if most of your guests are coming in from out of town, then Sunday is your best option! This gives your guests time to travel and wind down before the big day.
  2. Full weekend: You may not have a free weekend, but you could have a full weekend! Plan some events for your guests who arrive in town early.

Whether you choose to have your wedding on a Friday or Sunday, always keep in mind that you need to make the best decision for YOU. Your guests will make arrangements to make it to your wedding and enjoy the celebration despite the day you choose!
