Considering a non-Saturday wedding date, but can’t decide if your big day should be on a Friday or a Sunday? We’re sharing why couples choose a non-Saturday wedding day, so all you need to do is to decide which one is best for you! Check out these tips for Friday vs Sunday weddings.
Friday weddings are typically chosen when the majority of guests are local, therefore no one is required to take off work. These weddings usually start later in the day to give guests time to beat traffic. Additionally, Fridays are encouraged over Sundays if the couple knows that the party will go late into the night.
Sunday weddings are good options for the “not-so-crazy” party crowd. They typically start earlier in the day to give traveling guests time to get home before the Monday workday. Additionally, Sunday weddings do not require guests to take off a day of work to attend your wedding.
ADDITIONAL REASONS YOU MIGHT CONSIDER A FRIDAY OR SUNDAY WEDDING
- Save Some Money – since Saturday weddings are the most popular day of the week for weddings, it makes them the most expensive. Choosing a Friday or Sunday wedding day will cost less than choosing a Saturday wedding day.
- Book Your Dream Venue & Dream Vendor Team – you will have a higher chance at booking your dream wedding venue and dream vendor team when selecting a Friday or Sunday wedding day. Considering there are 52 Saturdays in a year, you double your chances of hiring your top choices by going with a Friday or Sunday (104 days in a year!).
- Make it a Wedding Weekend – by choosing a Friday or Sunday wedding day, you can also host additional events that blanket the entire weekend to turn your celebration into a Wedding Weekend! Start with your Wedding on Friday evening, continue the festivities on Saturday and a brunch on Sunday. Or consider a Friday welcome dinner, additional festivities and rehearsal dinner on Saturday and a Brunch Wedding on Sunday.
- It’s More Convenient – the most important people will attend your wedding day celebration no matter the day. So, choosing a Friday or Sunday wedding is actually more convenient because the costs are considerably less for guests coming in from out of town (flying is most certainly cheaper during the week!). Your guests can even turn their trip into a mini-vacay or staycation!
Now all you have to do is decide which is the best option for you: Friday or Sunday wedding!
