    We debated for so long. My future mil was so against it that she said she would pay the difference for us to get married on a Saturday instead. So that made the decision for us if not we totally would have..it is a huge money saver!!

    Our’s is on a Monday but it’s in Scotland and 95% of the guest list is traveling from another country to attend. They would have had to take time off of work anyway.

    No, our families would have revolted, haha.  With most guests travelling a significant distance for the wedding, we wanted to be as convenient for them as possible, and that was a Saturday night.

    We did it.  But it was a Destination Wedding.  With our small guest list, we would have paid a lot since most wedding places accomodate a larger group to do it locally.

    I am but it’s a holiday. Most of our guests like the date. My mom and myself both work in government so we (and a large portion of guests) are guaranteed the day off. For my venue they Are charging us Sunday pricing bc they count my date as a Sunday. It was the only date they had left in September and my Fiance is in the military so we what a small timeframe to work with.

    as u can see….I have lots of reasons, lol

    Mine will be on a thursday night. All of the younger people coming work weekends, anyway, and my out of state family will come if they can. It was a lot cheaper, and I got the date I wanted

    We’re getting married on a Thursday. 🙂 The date has significance for us; furthermore, we’re having a traditional Jewish wedding, and can’t get married between Friday night and Saturday night, because it’s the Jewish day of rest.

    Ours is on a Thursday for cost reasons, no way were we gonna pay £4000 more just to have a Saturday! Plus, our guests can take the Friday off and have a nice long weekend! We told everyone way in advance so people can book the time off etc
