Planning a wedding can be a daunting task, and one of the biggest decisions you'll make is choosing the date. While weekends are the most popular choice for weddings, there are many benefits to having a weekday wedding. From cost savings to increased availability, weekday weddings can be a great option for couples looking to save money, have a more intimate celebration, and enjoy more flexibility in their planning. In this article, we'll explore the top five benefits of having a weekday wedding.
COST SAVINGS: Many wedding vendors offer discounts for weekday weddings, as they are less in demand than weekend weddings. This can help you save money on everything from the venue (our weekday wedding package is 25% less than weekend packages) to the catering.
AVAILABILITY: Since weekday weddings are less common, you may have more options when it comes to choosing a venue and vendors. You may be able to book your dream venue or vendor that was previously unavailable on weekends. (We still have lots of weekday availability for both 2023 and 2024.)
MORE INTIMATE: With fewer guests attending, weekday weddings tend to be more intimate and personal. This can create a more relaxed and comfortable atmosphere for you and your guests.
FLEXIBILITY: Weekday weddings can be more flexible when it comes to scheduling. You can choose a time that works best for you and your guests, and you may have more options for ceremony and reception times.
EXTENDED CELEBRATIONS: Since weekday weddings are less common, your guests may be more likely to take time off work to attend. This can allow for extended celebrations, such as a rehearsal dinner or post-wedding brunch, without interfering with weekend plans. (Our 3-day, 2-night package is PERFECT for this.)
In conclusion, a weekday wedding can be a great option for couples looking to save money, have a more intimate celebration, and enjoy more flexibility in their planning. From cost savings to increased availability, there are many benefits to choosing a weekday wedding. While it may not be the traditional choice, a weekday wedding can be just as special and memorable as a weekend wedding. So, if you're planning your big day, consider the benefits of a weekday wedding and see if it's the right choice for you.
