- Wedding: City, State
My fiance and I are in the later stages of venue hunting, and we’re currently down to a few options. There is one venue we really like, but naturally, it’s the most expensive of our top choices. We’ve always planned on doing a Saturday evening wedding, but are toying with the idea of doing our favorite venue on a Sunday to bring the cost closer to that of other venues (since per-plate costs are a good deal less on Sundays at the venue). We would still plan on a ~4-10pm wedding, but would plan to charter a bus to bring people back to NYC after the wedding (where ~1/2 the guests are from, and almost all of the younger guests who couldn’t take off Monday).
As we run the budget math, one question we had was whether other vendors, beside the venue, are also cheaper on Sundays? Are bands, photographers, even florists cheaper on Sundays, since those are less popular for weddings? If you got quotes for both Saturday and Sundays, it would be really helpful to know the % difference! Thanks!
