    I think it sounds nice! As long as you aren’t planning on having people stay out very late, I think it’s a good alternative to Saturday.

    Hey, now we are getting married the same month : ) I had to do a lot of compromising too-not really with Fiance, but with family–about a million weddings happening next summer. I wanted June, but alas, it was not meant to be.

    We considered a Friday or Sunday wedding, too, but ended up going with Saturday because we have so many out of towners. We didn’t want locals to have to take off Friday or be rushed. And we didn’t want the travelers to feel pressured to get back to work on Monday. Ultimately, though, you know your guests and their circumstances. I think as long as you are doing it earlier and not keeping people too late, nobody will complain. And if they do, you probably don’t want them there anyway… 

    I have been to Sunday weddings and never been put off by them. So I think you are fine!

    As long as it isn’t the Sunday of a major holiday (um, had a friend get married 5 hours from anywhere people lived on Father’s Day, barely a 1/3 of the invited people came) then I think it will be fine. People won’t stay up till 3 AM partying but sounds like that won’t be an issue for you. I think it will be good as long as it works for you!

    We’re havng a Sunday afternoon wedding! Ceremony at 1pm, reception until about 6pm. Almost everyone is local though. We have gotten almost all our RSVPs and only 3 declines, so it doesn’t seem to bother people that ts on a Sunday.

    SO much better than Sunday night, hate those.

    EDIT:  I don’t like them because I like to party at weddings and I either can’t as much for Sunday night ones, or I have to pay dearly for it the next day.  Not because I think it’s bad to have one!

    Do you have much of a church crowd in your guest list? Might want to have it at 1pm if you do.

    It depends on what you want. Yes, you may have a lot of people leave early to make it home at a decent hour is they are Out of Town. We debated between Friday and Sunday, and went with a Friday wedding to avoid this, and we wanted a more night/party wedding, which worked better with Friday.

    Sunday evening weding here… reception is slated to end at 10pm.  people will leave early but that’s not an issue for me.  I will get the important “tradtional” to do’s out the way frist so we can party and those who want to leave early only misses out on dancing.
