Just trying to work out,  are you inviting some people to ceremony and some to reception? Is it far from where most people live?

ka0510:  Stop stressing yourself too much about it. Like pp said, it has a lot to do with how far away your wedding is, from where most people live… if it’s close by, i am sure many will stay a while.

It will be fine! Both my sister and I had wonderful, joyous, and well attended receptions on Sunday evenings. My wedding was on a Sunday, after a snowstorm! Everyone you love will be there, and will have a great time, because this is a special event. Don’t worry and have fun!

ka0510:  Try not to worry about it.  I’m having the same regrets 5 months out over my Friday wedding but I know for a fact my closest family and friends will be there with me, and that’s all I care about.  Besides, I’ve been getting great feedback from people about taking time off work for it and how it’s “not a big deal”.  That’s reassuring!  

I would recommend sending Save the Date’s if you haven’t already and make sure you have SUNDAY in bold on there so people can plan accordingly in advance.  Our wedding is at the end of the year and close to holidays so I didn’t want people to use up all their vacation time if they needed to take time for the day.  Good luck!!

My wedding is THIS Sunday, and I have more “yes” RSVPs than I even invited! I had to get a bigger cake at the last minute! 

Granted, my wedding is during the day. I think Sunday weddings are pretty common and you’ll get a nice crowd! People probably won’t stay until midnght, but I do think they will want to share your day. 🙂

ka0510:  I am having a Sunday wedding too 🙂 I’ve just always been at terms with it because in my culture you cannot have a Saturday wedding. But furthermore, the people who need to be there WILL be there. And the people who won’t be there will be there in spirit or won’t matter. 

I was a little sad because some people I really love couldn’t come to my shower (we had a 50% rsvp yes for that event), but when I went to the shower, I had such a blast with everyone who was there that it didn’t matter even though I missed them. I think the same thing will happen at your wedding.

Also, realizing you have a Sunday night wedding, you can plan things around the time. People might leave at 10 or 11, so if you want a send off with everyone, maybe plan it at 10 instead of 12, for example.
