Yes.  We’re getting married on a Monday and were able to get discounts on everything except the videography.

 

The videographer said they’d work just as hard regardless of the day of the week.  Yeah, I’d expect you to work just as hard.  But the point is, no one gets married on Mondays so I’m providing you with work on a day you normally wouldn’t get any.  But whatever.

 

We’ve saved THOUSANDS by getting married in the off-season (November-April) on a Monday!  I highly recommend non-Saturday weddings!  It can affect your guest count though.

We didn’t save anything by getting married on a Friday.

Not many photographers will discount a Friday. I honestly don’t discount any days but Monday-Thursday would be our best bet.

@Lashmont:  I agree, we are getting married on a Thursday and I didnt even consider  to ask our photographer for a discount. Most photographers dont work every single saturday anyways (do they?) And he will still put in the same amount of work for our wedding.

Nope, not usually unless it’s the dead of winter, then maybe. I work just as hard on a Friday as I do on Saturday and provide the same quality of images and same customer service.

Nope, got a referral and military discount though, so we didn’t miss it too much.

Yes, I will say that the guests at non-weekend weddings can tend to be a bit grumpy. It’s good for a wedding where there is no dance or perhaps a small family-only wedding.

No just on our venue. Friday weddings are super common here.

Nope, I wouldn’t discount for a client. I’m just as good at photography on  Friday as I am Saturday – Monday.

We’re getting married on a Thursday and aren’t getting any type of discount for our photographer – her prices are set in stone. We have gotten discounts on pretty much everything else though – venue, dj, lighting, etc
