    Friday!  No worrying about getting to bed early for work.

    Friday, for sure.  It would be an awesome way to start the weekend.

    It depends how late in the evening. If it was a 5 or 6 p.m. wedding, then Friday for sure. If it was a 2 or 3 p.m. wedding, probably Sunday so I wouldn’t have to miss work. We were looking at a venue that was 6 hours, starting at 3 p.m.! That’s why my Fiance and I are probably going to do a brunch wedding. The Sat. eve. ones are so much more expensive. :/

    Definitely a Friday because I don’t work weekends so I don’t mind staying up late. If it were a Sunday afternoon, that would be fine, but a Sunday evening may cause some people to leave early since they have to work Monday.

    Friday so that you can still have a party and not worry about people leaving early.

    I’d say Friday if everyone is pretty local and won’t have to take the day off work.  I think doing this is a great way to save a TON of cash.

    Definitely Friday evening if it doesn’t interfere with work.  If it’s Friday during the day however, then I would prefer Sunday.  I find Sunday weddings annoying because I don’t like to drink before work and most people leave early. The vibe is never as upbeat on a Sunday.

    I vote for a Sunday brunch wedding/reception.  Love it!

    One of our hostesses, Crebre80, did that and it turned out gorgeous!  I love brunch!  Plus that’d give the guests plenty of time to drive home/fly home.  No taking off a monday for work.

    I had a Friday wedding.  Our family and friends are either teachers, or work non-traditional schedules, so not a lot of people even had to take the day off that they wouldn’t have taken otherwise.  It worked out perfectly.  We only had three people that skipped our ceremony because they had to work.
