- Wedding: June 2018
If I am close to the person I would always make it to a wedding no matter what the day but I also have a very flexible schedule. I personally would rather attend a Friday wedding (both in town or out of town) because it doesn’t take over your whole weekend. I have been to 3 out of town Friday weddings and they were great because I flew in Friday morning went to the wedding and then had all day Saturday and Sunday to have a little mini vacation.
The biggest con to a Friday wedding is people have to take time off but not everyone works mon-fri anyways. There are plenty of people that work in the medical field or in hospitality that have to work Saturdays and a Saturday wedding would be an inconvenience to them.
My wedding was on the Friday before labor day weekend. We choose a Friday because we didn’t want to take away everyones long weekend. 60/80 people that came were from out of town. Even though people had to take time off most people made a vacation out of their trip and stayed in Colorado the whole weekend. My husband had a few cousins that used it as an excuse not to come but they are not close to us and I bet they would not have come on a Saturday either.
Like chistina82 said those who want to be there will be there.
