Oh my gosh that is so rude of her!

I would tell her that every day is going to be problematic for somebody, and also that it is your day, not hers, so you will have it on whatever damn day of the week you choose.

Friday evenings usually aren’t an issue for most people. I had mine on a Saturday, and even then some told me that they had to come late. That was fine, but obviously I wasnt going to change the day for them. You can’t please everyone.

And yes, like you said, close family, if they really want to come, should be able to get part of the day off so far in advance.

I can’t stand abraisive personalities like that.

Ugh, why do these people feel they are so important / special to think that you give a s&$t about what they think about your wedding.  I mean honestly, I would never say anything negative about anything even if it was a Monday wedding.  Come on people, you get a RSVP for a reason! We did a friday night wedding but luckily , since we didnt invite any family that we are not close to or anyone other than good friends , I only had one snide comment about how our wedding was 4 days before Christmas and how would they do their shopping?  I politely gave it right back by saying, well that’s why we sent Save-The-Date Cards 6 months ahead so you had plenty of notice and time to coordinate your shopping however we understand if you can’t come, they shut up !

@Earlybride:  Lol… my wedding is ON MY BROTHER’S BIRTHDAY!!!! My parents actually chose the wedding date… long story but having it earlier in March would have potentially clashed with the grand prix nearby and the weekend before had something wrong as well (my dad was the one negotiating with this with the venue) so I get a text: “They can do 21 March 2014, is that ok?” and I’m like “Ummm, you know that’s Pete’s birthday?  I think I better double check to see he doesn’t mind!”.  Lol (he didn’t, but I still think we should sing him happy birthday at the reception 😛 lol).

Fellow Friday bride here, of course it’s not going to suit everyone, but most will be able to make it work.  We cant adjust our plans to try and suit every whim of every guest, it’s completely unworkable!
