    Is the beach you’re planning on having the ceremony at a popular place? I ask because if you get married during spring break, I would think the beach would be crowded anyway, even if it is a Wednesday.

    ETA: Of course, summer break would probably be the same issue.  I would still think a Monday would be easier with people who work.

    well, if you had to pick between what day the weather is going to be nicer, I’d say go for the Wednesday wedding then, especially if the school break stuff isn’t going to be an issue.  Good luck 🙂

    you can actually tell the weather with that much certainty?

    I said April 6.  The next day is Good Friday so some people may have/take off.  (it would effectively be like having a Friday wedding).  I also said it because you may have people taking off for the Easter holiday already that will take off an extra day for the wedding if they get advanced notice.

    How many people that you are inviting do work?

    If there is a population that is working, I would say Monday – but have you looked at rates for a Sunday? Sundays are usually always cheaper then Fri/Sats & would be much easier for your working friends/family.

    You do what you want! =) I support you!

    I would go with the Monday wedding so I as a guest could have a nice 3 day weekend! =)

    Having lived by the beach my entire life, you can count on fog majority of the AMs.

    Like CupCakeMeg said, I’d go with a Monday wedding in the interest of it being attached to a weekend. If it’s possible for you to swing a weekend wedding, though, I’d go for it.

    I voted April!  Its the “off season” so hopefully you could get better rates in general.

    @misssydneyj: Another weekday bride! My wedding is an intimate beach wedding as well (35 guest), 5-6 hours away and on a Thursday. I voted for April 4th. It seems like a nicer day for a wedding and the important people in your life will most likely be able to make it. So far for me only 4 guests can’t make it but it’s more because of having to travel and not the day.
