    your guests will have to take time to travel even if you do have a saturday wedding, so i voted for a sunday wedding.  they can travel saturday, attend your wedding sunday, and then travel home on monday, and you can save some money!

    I totally vote for Sunday.  I work and taking time off is difficult, especially in these hard finacial times.  Besides, people are always more relaxed on Sunday and it could be like a wonderful sunday brunch.

    Sunday! They won’t need to take time off work that way, so more people will be able to attend. Unless you’re trying to keep your numbers down… 🙂

    My wedding is on sunday but if yours is Out of Town then I wouldnt recommend a sunday. I think saturday would be best, unless you did it early on sunday.

    i’m not familiar with how far newport is from the nj/ny area but since you’re starting your wedding earlier in the day, i think sunday should be fine. your guests can easily come up on saturday and hopefully have enough time to enjoy the bulk of your reception and still get home at a decent time

    It would depend on the type of reception, but if there was drinking and dancing, I definitely wouldn’t want it on a Sunday.

    I was all set to say Friday until I realized it’s a daytime wedding. In that case as a guest I would prefer Sunday. That way I can drive up either Friday night or Saturday then drive back Sunday after the wedding. No time off necessary.

    But as a bride, 2K is a nice chunk of change to pick Friday over Sunday.
