With everyone doing alot of cost cutting through having their wedding on a different day, I really wonder how many people are actually choosing to do it on another day other than Saturday.
I, myself, haven’t completely decided but am leaning towards a Sunday. What DAY is your wedding on?

At first FI and I were leaning towards a sunday but then we figured the faster we got it over with the faster we could go on our honeymoon LOL.

Saturday… it was most convenient for our guests. 🙂

We’re having ours on a Thursday because 1. There were no weekends available at our venue of choice until 2011, 2. It is the same date as my parent’s wedding anniversary, they’ll be married 34 years this year so we figure it’s a lucky date 😉 and 3. It is HALF the price for the venue to have it on a weekday and many of our other vendors have given discounts since it is on a weekday.
We were definitely weary at first that it would be too much of a burden for our guests, but we ended up receiving very few declines. People are taking the opportunity to do a long weekend getaway.

We chose to have our wedding on Sunday specifically to take advantage of the savings for a downtown Chicago wedding. We are able to save thousands on our venue by doing so. And we’ve saved a little bit here and there from other vendors that give Sunday discounts. I know a lot of couples are worried that not having a Saturday wedding will inconvenience their guests. However, while we do not practice any religion, our families are both Jewish so they won’t think twice about a Sunday since that is very typical for a Jewish wedding.

hahahaha. we are getting married on a tuesday. FI and I are photogs and some of our best friends are wedding photogs. Hence they wouldn’t be able to attend becuase they would need to shoot a $10k wedding!
We also got a discount on our venue because it’s a weekday.
But mainly, i love our date. 1-11-11. 111 is my fave number ever!

We’re getting married on a Sunday. I wanted a Saturday originally but since we’re having a relatively short engagement there were no Saturdays available for us. Our venue wasn’t discounted but we’ve received a few discounts from the DJ and such
The only problem I’ve run into so far is that there is a Falcons game on our wedding day and my FI has season tickets. Fortunately it’s an away game but he’s still a little sore about not being able to watch it lol

Ours was on a Tuesday. Then again, we had only a dozen guests at the wedding, and the at-home reception for 60 people was on a Friday evening.
Friday nights and Saturdays weren’t possible, because ours was a Jewish wedding. The Tuesday thing came about because we live in the DC area, but as a same-sex couple, we had to get married in MA (at least at the time we started planning, and by the time that changed, our plans were already set). MA has a three-day waiting period to get a marriage license. While you can get an exemption from the waiting period, you can only do so by going to court on a weekday. And we thought that trying to get court permission the same day as the ceremony was going to be cutting it too close for comfort. After trying to put all the pieces together several different ways, we decided to drive up to MA on Sunday, get the marriage license and court waiver on Monday, and have the ceremony on Tuesday.

Ours is on a Sunday – it was less expensive. We debated whether Friday would be better since it was the same price. But ultimately we’d rather people leave early than people come late! Also, the date is nice and even 🙂

We went with a Sunday for a few reasons — the venue only does 1 wedding at a time on Friday and Sunday which is nice because we get to decide when we wanted to start…where as Saturday it was either 11:30 or 6:30. I didn’t want to start at 11:30 and 6:30 would be too late since its a fall wedding and we were orginally going to try for an outdoor ceremony and indoor reception. They did allow a lower guest count on a Sunday as well — where as Saturday was way more then we were going to do. A sunday wedding sounds pretty to me too. 😉

We were going to do a Friday (12/31/10) but that didn’t workout. So now we are getting married on 1-1-11 (which is such a cool date).

Friday, but because it’s New Year’s Eve.

Saturday – there was really never a question in my mind on that one. Most convinient for guests and my church doesn’t do weddings on Sundays.
