I would include the day of the week as well as the date.

I cannot tell you how  many times I’ve heard people say (and I’ve said myself a few times), something along the lines of “Oh, I keep thinking that the (for example) 26th is a (for example) Sunday, I don’t know why …” 

By providing both the day of the week and the date, you are helping to make sure that your guests will realize exactly when your wedding is.

What day of the week are you getting married on?

If it’s not a Saturday, I would definitely put the day of the week. If it is a Saturday, I think it is less important.

I had to go back and look at ours!  Yes, I think it’s customary.  I believe if you didn’t most people would assume it was a Saturday, so if you absolutely hated it, you would be safe.  

I would include it for the convenience of your guests.

I did not even consider writing the day on ours. Maybe it might have done if it wasn’t a Saturday…

@reynaweddingbee:  No but it’s a good idea.  A friend of mine sent STDs with her date as a Sunday.  When she sent out invitations she only wrote the date.  Since I thought it was still on a Sunday I sent my regrets quickly.  She called me a few weeks before the wedding to find out why I RSVPd no and when I said I couldn’t make it to an out of town wedding on a Sunday she said they had changed the date to Saturday.  By then I had already made alternate plans for that weekend and could still not attend.  She was miffed and stopped speaking to me afterwards.

Write the day of the week.
