Anything goes these days with weddings. No bridal parties, best-woman, high bars…all these things have become popular because couples come in all iterations and the vision for their weddings are as unique as they are. The Saturday wedding though, that’s one thing that many couples are adamant on sticking to…but wait! There are so many great reasons to think out of the box when picking a date and we are happy to take you through a few.
Most venues and vendors offer slight Friday & Sunday discounts. A bit of savings over 3 or 4 of the biggest expenses can really add up. Let’s assume you were able to negotiate a non-Saturday deal with your venue, caterer, florist and photographer, you may be in the thousands in savings.
Why would vendors give you a deal? Chances are your wedding offers them a chance to do more than one wedding in the weekend. That could be very enticing to some vendors and they are willing to give you a break to book an extra event they weren’t counting on.
If you’re getting married on a Sunday or Friday, note that when these days fall on holidays, they may be considered prime dates and may not be offered at special prices.
YOUR PICK OF DATES AND VENDORS
With a limited number of Saturdays, and the pressure on the few that fall over summer, the demand for top vendors and venues can be extremely high. You may be able to nail down a supplier who otherwise would be out of reach or booked up if you didn’t choose a Saturday.
MORE TIME FOR FUN!
If the wedding happens on a Friday night and you have out of towners coming in, that gives you 2 more weekend days for brunches and more partying. If you make it Sunday, then you have all day Saturday to prep and pre-party.
If you’re having a Friday wedding, guests may have to take time off work so be sure to send the ‘Save the Date’ at least a year in advance and specify that your wedding is on a Friday. It’s also a good idea to start a Friday ceremony a bit later to give people leeway if they are coming from work or out-of town. Alternatively for a Sunday, you may want to start earlier knowing people will want to leave a bit early if they have work or school the next day.
