I’ve toyed with a midweek wedding because I now the difference in cost is massive. Great job on your part though.

We had a sunday afternoon wedding. I realize a lot of people dont think of that as a weeknight but technically it is. I actually got a lot of push back and criticism for this. We also had a small guest list, same amount as you. Like 90% of people we invited came. The only ones that did not were because of my grandma passing two days prior.  it ended up being a great day of the week for us to have a wedding…

I thikn a wednesday night is a great night for a wedding. We actually almost had a wednesday wedding but my family through a fit so we didnt…UGH

We’re doing a Monday afternoon/evening.  It’s saving us a TON of money!!!  Plus, in Vegas, there are always so many events going on that it’s much cheaper for the guests as far as accomodations, transportation, etc.  After going through some of the planning, I’m super glad we picked an “off” day and can’t imagine trying to fight for a weekend!

Good luck and what a fun date!

wow that’s great! congratulations on your super awesome deals! we’re from a small town, which is where our wedding will be held, so the prices were super low already and then most places are giving us a military discount. our reception venue is only 150$.

we’re doing a Weds eve too! it’s the Weds before the August long weekend here, so it’s great because we aren’t interfering with anyone’s long weekend plans.

and we got 60% off the regualr venue rental price! and no stress over any vendors. plus, we didn’t want a late night rager with everyone getting really drunk, as often happens with that Sat nite energy. we are also hoping that the date will deter some people from coming, since we want to keep it small, but didn’t want to offend anyone by not inviting them!
