I also HATE Friday weddings, it was one of the things I would not budge on. My venue does not have a price difference anyway.
I do not think it’s worth asking my family and friends to take off from work. My wedding is already a PITA for FI’s family as they are English and our wedding is in PA where I am from. No need to make it difficult for my side as well.

Hi, I’m having a friday wedding and yes it save use some money comparing on Sat night, we can use those money for our honeymoon. I personally think friday will work fine with the guest, b/c the fact that after the wedding they still have their wkend ahead of them to rest. Also, if they really care about you, they can take a half day off or leave work a hr early to attend your wedding. Seriously, you can’t please everyone, do what you think is the best for you. I tried to please people and ended up driving myself crazy.
My plans are have bridal shower, bachelorette, Rehersal dinner/lunch a month before the wedding. I’ll pick a wkend for the shower and another wkend for bachelorette and rehersal. You don’t have to do everything all in the last wk, I think it would be too crazy and too tiring, but it’s up to you. I know people who did that, and it was just too chaotic to do everything in the last week.
Another option is to have it in sat afternoon, or sunday night that’ll save you money. Sunday night wedding people leave early b/c they all have to work the next day.
