I’m having a Sunday wedding. People may not come because of the date, but I feel like the ones who are most important to us will make it. Even if we had the wedding on a Saturday, out of town guests would take Friday off to travel here. So by having the wedding on Sunday, they are taking Monday off instead. Plus, I am saving quite a bit of money this way. Since Fiance and I are paying for the majority of the wedding ourselves, we can use all the savings we can get.

I’m doing a Sunday morning ceremony & brunch reception. This way out of town guests can actually get back home by Monday if they need to (although it’s MLK Jr. weekend, so most won’t have to).

HOnestly, the biggest plus for me was that I won’t have to take off extra time from work to get ready, I already have Fridays off so I’ll have all day Friday & Saturday to get prepped for SUnday morning.

So far everyone is really excited for a brunch reception and they all think it will be really fun. At least that’s what they say to my face 🙂

We’re cheating a little and doing a Sunday wedding on a long weekend- we found a place that would still offer Sunday rates even though the next day is a holiday (Labor day).  That way we still saved a large chunk of money, but I, like you, was worried I’d lose out on some people if we had it on a Sunday without Monday off.  Honestly though, one of my good friends is getting married on a Sunday in April and I still plan on being there.  I’m sure your friends will make every effort to be there no matter what day it is…
