We’re having one. It’s a cost issue for us as we’re getting a discount. I would have a Saturday wedding if we could afford it, because people will probably leave our reception early (rude, but it happens). I’m excited though.

Mine was on a Sunday 🙂 

For other Catholic guests the Mass counted as their Sunday obligation. (bonus!) The reception was at 5:00, and everyone was done by 10:00, so no one was out too late at night for work the next day.

We’re getting married on a Sunday. But that’s because in our industry our days off are Sunday/Monday. Our local friends can actually make it to our wedding and a lot of our out of town friends and family will be on Summer break anyways.

I’m having a Sunday wedding over a holiday weekend. However, Sunday weddings are the norm in Jewish families anyway.

@kellmerr:  Happy almost-wedding day!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


We had a Sunday wedding.  It was just convenient.  We didn’t have anyone not attend as a result.  Some people left a little early, but most of our friends stayed and partied with us.  It was great =)

Woo! Go Sunday weddings!


For us it was initially cost but a lot more. I come from a very religious Jewish family and it would be a smack in the face to not only marry a former Irish Catholic, not only have a secular ceremony, but to ask them to come to the wedding on their Sabbath. 


Our venue is a restaurant M-F and on Saturday afternoon it does weddings, and all of Sunday. If we were to do it on Saturday, we’d only be able to do it until 4pm, we would have noise restrictiond and it would be about $3k more overall. If we did it Sunday, it’d be much cheaper, a smaller initial deposit and we could have the place for the entire day.


Once we had this information, deciding on a date was pretty simple…

Sunday wedding here – mostly because the venues were all booked up for Saturdays in the month we wanted (we started planning only 6 months out)

My Sister had her wedding on a Sunday , Mother’s Day to be exact .  It was great, I’m of the mindset though that if someone has a problem with having to take off a day of work fir a wedding (and have a problem w doing so) then they can just not come.  the party was just as crazy as any other Saturday wedding that I’ve attended , really no difference ! I had my wedding on a Friday , however only bc my husband wanted to get married on 12/21/12 which happened  to fall on a Friday .
