honeybee2020 : if I was local I’d have no problem attending. The only reason I can see people having an issue is if they are the sort to be hungover the next day at work and that’s not a thing I do. Or if they feel obligated to stay right up until the end, I suppose. If I had to travel and it wasn’t summer, I’d just decline and assume the couple wasn’t unreasonable. I don’t have a job where I can just take days off as I choose.
Do what works for you, accept that your invitees will do the same, and have a happy wedding.

I’m getting married on a Sunday!
We wanted that weekend and the church is booked Saturday.
It happens to be Rosh Hashanah Monday which works well for my family traveling from out of town because their kids won’t have school Monday.
We’re having a 2:00 ceremony and reception following till about 5 or 6pm – no dancing. My fiance’s siblings will probably drive a few hours home after to go to work and school (for their kids) the next day so this time will work well.

Were having a Sunday wedding for the following reasons:
– my fiance really wanted to have our wedding on his grandmother’s birthday (she was like a mother to him, she passed away several years ago) and her birthday fell on a Sunday this year
– most of our guests are in town
– a fair amount of my fiance’s friends work in the restaurant industry and it’s next to impossible for them to take off on a Saturday
– we’re paying for the entire wedding ourselves so the price difference was important to us
Only one friend has complained but she lives across the country.
If it’s really that much of an issue with someone then I would rather them not come. Paying and planning for my day is hard enough already, I really don’t need to hear people complain about it.
I myself wouldn’t mind attending a Sunday wedding either so long as if it’s within 2 hours from me.

Sunday weddings have a different vibe than Saturday weddings.
For 1k, it isnt worth changing to a Sunday. Also do people need to travel? If so, then a Sunday is very inconvienient.
I have been to multiple Saturday and Sunday weddings and for the Sunday ones I always leave straight after the formalities, however the one I went to recently a lot of people left before the cake cutting.
So it depends who is attending, the time of the day you are starting and the overall vibe you are after. People let loose on a Saturday! ha
