Th good thing about Friday is people won’t have to worry about going to work the next day- they can stay later and drink more.

We chose Sunday as it meant that guests wouldnt need to take a Friday off work to attend the ceremony/reception. If guests want to take Monday off work they can or they can go to work the next day, the reception is finishing at 10.30pm so not late and the 90% of guests live within an hour drive. Accomodation is also cheaper on a Sunday night rather than a Friday or Saturday.

If most If most people are in town, and wedding doesnt start till 7, I would go with Friday.   A Sunday party will be a lot tamer, imho.

It all depends on the time of day you want, and what kind of party you want. If you want to get married in the evening, then Friday would be fine. Guests would stay later, and not have to worry about work. If you want to get married during the afternoon, then I’d stick with Sunday.

We chose Friday, with many of our family guests coming from out of town, we wanted to have some time to spend with everyone over the weekend. We also aren’t taking a honeymoon, so it gives us the weekend to relax before going back to work. It is in the evening so most local guests won’t have to take a day off. I know many feel it is in bad form to have a Friday wedding, but we haven’t heard any complaints and still received the average 80%+ acceptance.

I would do a Friday over a Sunday.  That leaves people time to relax and still enjoy a weekend before going to work.  If your ceremony is in the evening they should be able to get there after work.  

We are really weird and having our wedding on a Thursday.  A lot of my family is flying in from out of town and this will give us time to visit with them Friday and Saturday.  I wasn’t aware that it was bad form to have a Friday wedding.  That probably means our Thursday wedding is bad form as well?  Either way, I don’t care. It saved us a little over $5k, and as much as I want family and friends to be there, they aren’t paying the wedding tab, we are, so we choose to save where we could.

I definitely would pick a Friday over a sunday. It saves money but your guest can still party and have a good time without the time constraints of work the next day . They can let loose more.
