Im having a small and elegant wedding, 60 guests max. Its hard enough finding a nice venue that does have a minimum count. I found a couple, BUT they are saying that it must be a Friday or Sunday Evening wedding! urghhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh I just want to scream!!! Folks have to work on Monday mornings and I surely dont want to inconvenience anyone. On top of that…Evening?? Evenigs are ok with me, BUT my FH’s family is both OLD and OLD FASHIONED and I dont want them to leave halfway thru my reception because its 9pm already. What would you do? Are you having a Friday/Sunday wedding? Have you ever been to one???

I would much rather prefer a Friday wedding. I have been to both and while I might be a little annoyed that I had to use a vacation day on Friday to get ready but I think there is so much more or a different vibe on Friday. On Friday’s people are ready to party and excited to have fun and on Sunday it’s a low key day and people know they have to go to work the next day.

@Kamazing: I would prefer a Friday, because I could party more and enjoy myself-even though I would need to take atleast 1/2 vacation day.
However, if your family wont party much then maybe a Sunday afternoon would work best. Is your date really in 2013? If so, I would keep looking for a venue that better suits you.

Friday. I like to let loose and drink at weddings. On a Sunday I would be worried about work in the morning.

I’m getting married on a Friday, but another option would be to get married on a sunday when the monday after is a holiday/long weekend.

We were in the same predicament, but decided on the Sunday of Labor Day Weekend so most people would have the Monday after off 🙂

Friday over Sunday, because at least they won’t have to get up early the next morning!

I would prefer a Friday over a sunday anyday. Sundays are when you wind down from your week and get ready to start it up the next day again. I would hate going to a sunday wedding ( no offense to anyone that has done it) but ulitmatley its what you and your Fiance want. People who matter will be there no matter what. Now I say this based on my life. I work at a bank so sunday is my only day off, obviously everyone doesnt have a schedule like me. lol
