We just found our perfect wedding venue and the only way we can afford an evening wedding is to have it on a Thursday. They have the Thursday that precedes Labor Day weekend this year and think that could be a good thing with people taking the next day off for a 4 day weekend. We originally were going to do either a Saturday afternoon or Sunday afternoon/twighlight wedding, but think that this could be a good alternative.
Most guests will be coming from the NY Metro area to Long Island meaning they’ll hit some traffic to make the 6:30pm ceremony. Any experiences/thoughts about this? Thanks!

I think its a fabulous idea but do you have the option to do it on sunday instead? Most people will have off work the following monday instead of that friday for labor day. I perosnally would have no problem taking off work the friday before a long weekend in order to enjoy myself at a thursday wedding but other people might not want to use a vacation day when they have one coming up. Something to think about 🙂

Personally I wouldn’t go to a Thursday evening wedding, especially if it was some kind of drive. I agree with the PP, Sunday would work better that weekend since almost everyone has that monday off.
