    Honestly, all would work if you were local. I’d prefer weekend. My favorite wedding was a Sunday brunch, it was great food. With an 11 am ceremony it wasn’t too early and we could all travel home.

    All of those options sound doable to me. It might be a little tougher for local guests to get to the Friday ceremony due to traffic and such, but I feel like that’s something most people can plan ahead for and (hopefully) be able to get out of work early to be able to make.

    if you invite me to a party I will 100% be there, no matter what day it is!  I would prefer a Friday or Saturday though.  Friday night would be my #1

    I chose Friday and Satuday. Sundays are for doing nothing 🙂

    I LOVE BRUNCH!!!  I especially love wedding brunch, it comes with waffles and CAKE and if I can have a mimosa with it, I might just kiss you on the lips!

    Not a brunch fan (but I am probably a minority). I voted 6 pm Friday ceremony followed by a later dinner (say 7ish?) as that is what we did for our wedding and it was very well recieved.

    I voted Friday (6pm ceremony followed by a later dinner), but 1. I don’t like brunch. and 2. I work sundays and wouldn’t be able to get it off [mandatory weekends]. I would be off early enough to attend a ceremony on friday.

    I’ve been to both Saturday and Sunday wedding and while I prefer Saturday wedding (mostly for the after party) I’m happy with either. Friday is super inconvenient because that means for in in town wedding, I have to RUSH home from work shower/change and rush to the wedding – get stuck in traffic, only to usually miss the ceremony and feel terrible. Or take off Friday from work.

    FI’s cousin is having her wedding on a Friday evening because everything will be 20% cheaper which is a good reason that no one can argue against. The only thing is that the both of us will have to take off of work that day and drive seven hours to get there. Luckily, we are not hourly employees and we do not live paycheck to paycheck. As it is, we can’t even have a honeymoon this year because he doesn’t have enough vacation days since he just started his job. I think that’s the only thing to consider when planning a Friday evening/Sunday wedding is the distance your guest will have to travel.

    All would work, however I wouldn’t have as much fun at a Sunday wedding. Getting my shit together for work the next day and making sure Im not too tired would be playing in the back of my mind.

    @jwdesiree:  For the sake of your guest, I am glad you went with a Saturday brunch. I love brunch weddings. You have plenty of time to enjoy the wedding and then rest and go out some more. I wanted a brunch wedding as well, but it didn’t work out for our families.

    All of those times would work for local guests. If your guests are coming from out of town, Saturday is really the best option. I’ve been to many Sunday weddings where we had to leave almost immediately after the ceremony or dinner so that we could make our flight home.
