Ours would have been cheaper on a Sunday, but not Friday.  I didn’t consider either because I didn’t want to inconvenience my guests, though.

If I would of gone with a sunday then the venue would be 700 dollars cheaper.

I didn’t want My reception to be cut short due to maybe ppl leaving early on Sunday bc of needing to go to work. Lol that was my way of thinking .

It would’ve costed the same no matter the day of week. We got married in a rural area though and things were fairly inexpensive compared to big cities.

My venue was around $20/person cheaper for a friday or sunday wedding. When you have 115 or so people coming, that adds up to $2300 which was more than my flower budget. You bet I saved the money and had a Sunday wedding. The people who love you will come and enjoy themselves. We had no problems.

The venue we booked wasn’t any different in price but we looked at some that were anywhere from a couple hundred to more than a couple thousand cheaper on different days.

Our venue was $600 cheaper but also included free linens and chairs on Sunday. We went with Sunday because we were getting more even though it wasnt much. Our mothers both loved the idea (we were both born on a Sunday) so they thought it added sentimental value to our day. Our guest list isnt that large and we’re only inviting people super close to us, so we know they wouldn’t miss it despite it not being a Saturday night wedding.

We married on Sunday due to cultural reasons. It was 25 dollars cheaper per plate than on Saturday. Considering our massive guest list (500) it turned out to be perfect for us

Friday was $10pp cheaper and Sunday was $20pp. Neither of us wanted a Sunday wedding and my fiancé refused having it on Friday so unfortunately we weren’t saving anything.

To rent the space at my venue for the ceremony and reception is maybe a couple of thousand dollars difference on a Friday or Sunday versus a Saturday depending on the time of year. Catering is also the same price. The big difference is the minimums. The required minimum for food and beverages on a Saturday is $30,000. Friday is $20,000. Sunday’s and weekdays are around $8,000.

socalgirl1689:  Our venue isn’t that expensive, but it comes with an exclusive caterer. I think it’s like, $3000? So, we ended up saving about $600, but it’s relatively small compared to what we’re REALLY paying for the food and alcohol. 

ETA: Our choosing to marry on a Sunday did not impact our catering fee. It did lower the hotel rates for our guests, though!

There was not a price difference between Friday and Saturday for us.
