No one gave me any problems. In fact, my anniversary is tomorrow… Meaning last year our wedding was on a Friday. People still came and still had fun. He was just being a rude jackhole. Friday weddings are becoming super common.

Your fiance said the right thing “The people that matter will be there.”

Sometimes people are ignorant and use the little voice inside outside. Ignore him, I’ve dealt with a few rude comments since starting. Some people have no common sense!

I’m sure you’re day will be perfect!

Sounds like you fortunately will not have to deal with THAT person on your wedding day- kudos =)

Friday weddings are SO MUCH BETTER imo.  It still gives everyone their whole weekend to do what they wanted- and really who doesn’t want an excuse to be off work on a friday? I would have done a friday but my FI’s dad is a cardiac surgeon and absolutely cannot take a friday off- I really do love the idea of going to a wedding without it taking up the majority of the weekend tho.

@december bride: your not wrong to have it on a friday, but your wrong to be “amost in tears” about it…although the guy was completley out of line to say it….what did you think was oging to happen when youhad it on a friday? Im sure EVERYONE who has a wedding on a weekday gets some kind of response like this…

My friend got marrie on a thursday as it was cheaper and (not to her face..) I was like “whaaaaatttttt” and i contemplated if i could come or not….I ended up dressing in my best and worked all day and then took the bus from work to the wedding…your husband is right though…those that matter will be there….but you have to remember people are going to have to take a day (or more) of work to attend it, so people are going to say stuff. I wouldnt be so sensitive.

I completely agree with BaileyH. Yes, it was rude of him to say that, but some people just say the first thing that comes into their heads without thinking. Especially if there is alcohol involved (like at someone’s else’s wedding reception). I know your feelings were hurt but it would really help you to try and take other’s people’s words with a grain of salt.

In the past 5 plus years I have been to as many weddings on a Friday as I have on a Saturday. That dude was a tactless jerk, and your Fiance was awesome.

Don’t worry! We’re having a Friday wedding and we are in November, so around the holidays just like you. I figure the people that are really excited about it in the first place are going to make it happen whether or not they have to take off work.

My upcoming wedding is also on a friday. The last wedding I attended was on a Friday. Its growing in popularity and your Fiance is right the people who want to be there and who matter will be there. Period. I think it was rude of him to say that, but people are rude. Dont be hurt it is what it is. People can have their opinion, but it doesnt mean they are right 😉

@KatyElle: Agreed.


@december bride: His comment was quite rude and thoughtless. Perhaps he isn’t willing to take time off work to attend the wedding of a friend but I know a lot of people (including myself) that are.

I am having a Friday wedding and I am looking forward to it! Not only will it reduce the guest list a little but we will have all weekend afterwards to enjoy our families (plus who doesn’t like saving a ton of money!?!). We have only had one person (FI’s grandmother) complain and she doesn’t even work/is retired so her whines are irrelevant.

Don’t take it to heart,  atleast you know you don’t have to invite him since it is obviously too much to ask. 😉
