Whether you are working with a short engagement or your dream venue is already booked every Saturday for the next two years, a Friday or Sunday wedding may just be the answer to your nuptial prayers. Opting for one of these days can minimize several wedding day stressors like budget or travel strategy. The Cabin Ridge has compiled a list of the top four reasons to consider a Saturday alternative for your big day.
The most obvious and possibly the most crucial aspect to choosing the day of the week when planning your wedding is cost. Some venues offer a discounted rated for booking a day other than Saturday. Not to mention, rental companies may give you a discount for using their services on a less popular date.
Now that you have said yes, finding the perfect venue is the next stop on your wedding planning checklist. While most Saturdays are booked at least a year in advance, the wedding venue of your dreams can typically accommodate a Friday or Sunday event. In addition, vendors like caterers or florists are easily obtainable for events on these days.
Need extra time to make sure every detail is perfect? Then a Friday evening ceremony can give you time to decorate and set-up without the rush. When booking your venue, be sure to inquire about their policy regarding early access to the property for set-up as many can accommodate this request if manageable giving you a leg up on your wedding day agenda.
Out of town guests will have more time to travel with a Sunday wedding while Friday nuptials allow you to spend more time with your guests. If you are planning a destination wedding, a Friday or Sunday will allow your guests to relax and experience the special place you have chosen for your big day.
While Saturdays are still the most popular day of the week to say I do, other days are trending in the wedding world. And whether you want to give your wedding a modern twist or you want to reduce your budget, there are many perks to becoming Mr and Mrs on a Friday or Sunday.
