    Go for the more affordable (and prettier!) venue on a Sunday

    Pay extra to have the original venue on a Saturday

    Move the wedding to a different city and keep looking

    Other... please explain below, thanks!

    I would definitely go with Sunday!  That’s a LOT just to add on the ceremony…before you sign, make sure there aren’t any similar hidden fees on the Sunday date, but if there aren’t, I don’t see anything wrong with doing a Sunday wedding.

    We are doing a Sunday wedding and we haven’t heard one negative word about it!

    We have a lot of Out of Town guests, but they’re willing to make the sacrafice of taking a day or two off of work. And as you know, a Sunday wedding will save you a bit of money.

    Our ceremony will start at noon, w/ reception 1-7. We will then have an after-party w/ immediate family & very close friends from 7:30-? @ my aunt’s house. We figured 7pm is a good cut-off time for those that wish to go home early.

    I think a Sunday wedding will be nice! Congrats on picking the venue! I am thinking about a Sunday wedding now as well, it is so much more afforable! Some might find it rude but at the same time it is better than a Friday night wedding. Most people HAVE to get out of work to attend a Friday evening wedding but on Sundays, most have it off and can decide themselves if they want to work that Monday or not. I think you made a great desicion! Just keep it earlier than later.

    Good luck!

    If there really aren’t any other places you can look I’d go with the Sunday.  I don’t normally think its wise to pick a day before the venue for situations like this.  Assuming you haven’t sent save the dates it’s fine.  We had a Sunday wedding and it was great.

    Keep in mind other cool wedding places you may not have checked – local farms, vineyards, wineries, museums, hotels, gardens, restaurants, banquet halls, country clubs etc.

    To answer your question, I don’t think Sunday is a problem.

    When I was venue hunting I felt that there had to be some place that fit everything that my Fiance and I wanted.  We looked, and looked and looked until we found, for us, the perfect venue.  (We want our dogs in the ceremony, and many places were not willing to accommodate them- go figure?)  MY POINT IS : DON”T SETTLE!  Don’t loose hope, keep looking and I promise you that the perfect place is out there for you and your Fiance.  If you really like this venue and it is cheaper and available on a Sunday then go for it.  If you still have reservations about it, then keep looking!  You have plenty of time– Good Luck!

    First of all, I hear yah on the ridiculous venue price hacks. Urgh.

    Second, I’m having an afternoon Sunday wedding and have not heard so much as a peep from anyone. Everyone that talks to me about it is really excited, Our reception will end around 6 o’clock, and although we have a couple of people that have to travel, they’ve either made arrangements to take that Monday off or are ducking out a smidge early. No biggie. 🙂
