As I look at everyone’s wedding date, I can’t help but notice I did not find many brides getting married on a Sunday. I know Saturday is the most popular and probably best for our guests.
However… The reason we chose Sunday was the difference in the cost as opposed to a Saturday. (We’re talking a $30 difference per plate!) I did not want an expensive wedding, and have budgeted well. It was the same on a Friday as a Sunday, but I feel people either don’t show up at the church because they are working, or they are exhaused from the work week. (Plus every vendor we booked was free )
Any other brides choose a Sunday? For what reason?

I’m a Sunday. We are doing a Sunday morning brunch, because it was less than 1/2 the price of a Saturday morning brunch at our venue of choice. (In other words, there is NO WAY we could have had our dream venue on a Saturday. lol) I have found that all of our vendors are very willing to negotiate a reduction in their minimums because of it being a Sunday morning. 🙂

Our wedding was on sunday. It wasnt because of the cost because we only saved slightly on the limo costs. Sundays just worked better for the majority of the people in involved so we stuck to that.

We’re doing Sunday, but during the day (morning ceremony [non-religious], brunch reception).
A good friend of mine had a traditional dinner reception on a Sunday night, though. It was so much fun! (Other than the thought I had to be up for work the following morning!) I don’t think if made a huge difference for the guests, either–everybody seemed to be having a blast. We left at about midnight, though (because of the Monday morning thing), but there were still lots of people left when we did.

We’re doing a Sunday because there were only 2 dates available for our venue in 2012- May 6th (which we chose) or my fiance’s birthday. Everyone seems like they’re okay with it thus far. I’m trying to make considerate choices for my bridal party & guests- such as having the wedding start at 4pm, having the ceremony and reception in the same venue so that it’s a quick transition, etc.

I chose a Sunday afternoon wedding. We had a short engagement, so most Saturdays were booked by the time we started looking for a venue. Sunday aftenoon ending up being very nice for us since we could serve a little less food and alcohol than a Saturday evening wedding.

We chose a Sunday because I relish in doing things differently… and because it helped us avoid vendor spending minimums that we would not have been willing to pay for.

Mine is on a Sunday, but mine was more focused around the date. We are getting married on my grandparent’s wedding anniversary, luckily this year it landed on a weekend otherwise it was going to be one LONG engagement.

We chose our date before we realized it was a Sunday….we forgot all about the pesky leap year factor. But it was the date and the magical number of 6.24.12 (all divisible by each other and divisible by 3) that we liked and I have an issue with off numbers so we stuck with it. It has saved us a bit of money too 🙂

We chose Sunday! We liked it better because some of our immediate families work schedules.

MamaMima , You sound like me! lol. I chose our wedding date because I love prime numbers! 3.23.13. I figure they are perfect for a wedding since they’re indivislible (except for 1 and itself) as a marriage should be !
Miltie , I was planning on having a sunday wedding due to costs, but the venue I found is very reasonable for any day.

We got married last September 4, but that was a Sunday on labor day weekend! We chose it because it was a long weekend, and allowed people travel time on either side. It worked out pretty well!

I’m doing a Sunday as well but we didn’t have a lot of choice. We’re eloping to Paris and literally the only time we could leave for our flight was a friday night so we would get their Saturday. I wasn’t about to get off a plane feeling gross and then get married!
After we chose the date I realized it the same as Kate Middleton’s!

I’m Sunday May 20th. Late morning ceremony with a simple brunch reception. Cost wasn’t really a factor for us as much as we only got engaged 3 months ago in Jan, wanted a spring wedding but didn’t want to wait more than a year to get married. So our venue choices were limited do to nearly every place already being booked on Saturdays.

I’m having a Sunday wedding. It was much cheaper for us and it is still a weekend day. People might have to go to work the next morning, but we will have all day to celebrate with those who love us.
