    @aquaelle:  I just went through the same issue because the venue I had my heart set on was bookEd solid … I ended up doing some heavy research and found a very similar venue that had my date available… I’m so glad I didn’t settle and kept looking because I love my current venue even more and even though I did lots of research before and have been to 24 weddings in my area in the past 2 years I never knew this place existed…. Keep looking you may be surprised at what you find

    Like the previous poster said, try looking at other venues. I would either look for another venue with the date you want or just book the later date on a Saturday. Having guests travel a few hours on a Sunday would be a bit hectic in my opinion.

    Are you having any part of the ceremony/reception outside? If not, I’m not sure why the leaves matter, unless you’re planning on doing photos outside- can you clarify this?

    Have you thought about a Friday night, or is your venue booked then, as well? Since you want a party, I’d go with a Saturday night.

    Sunday weddings can be tricky. If I was travelling a couple of hours to get to it on a Sunday, they would have to be REALLY good friends of mine, otherwise I would just send them a gift. 

    HOWEVER – this is your day, so that means you get to do whatever you want Smile Heck, you could have it 7 am on a Tuesday morning if you’d like!

     

    PS – I agree with PP – how about another venue?

    Saturday weddings are always very convenient. But if you had it on a Sunday it’s not bad, it’s just not preferred by most.

    @aquaelle:  People are much less likely to dance and let loose on Sunday because they have to drive home and go to work the next day. I think people would still come but I don’t know that your dance floor or open bar would get too much use unless you did it in the middle of the day

    I would prefer a Saturday wedding, however, if I was close to the couple I would definitely go to a Sunday wedding. If I go to a Sunday wedding I would prefer 1-5 so I can still get home and relax a bit before going to bed.

    Oh man, tough call! I’d prefer the Saturday wedding, but if the October colors are what you have dreamed of, you should really go with it! 🙂

    Sorry, I’m not clear – is this for a wedding or for a post-wedding party?  I’m not sure what a “marriage celebration” is.
