Hey there…I know how you feel! I had some issues on things too. I really wanted to get married on a saturday, but the person who was deligated to reserve the venue within plenty of time, dropped the ball and all that was left were friday’s and for religious reasons weddings aren’t done on sundays. It was tough..it was either delay my wedding until the following month or take a friday. I spoke with my Fiance abou tthis and he said delaying any longer wasn’t an option, so lets’ do friday. That was months ago, the church and stuff was all booked and just now he’s saying he didn’t realize we were getting married on a friday. WTF!!! He doesn’t recall having this discussion at all! omg..lol. And there are some people who think they won’t make it to the ceremony, only the reception because of work and also I’m just finding out most people work on saturday morning where we are getting married….which I did NOT know about. I had everyone telling me that friday would work perfectly at first. Anyways, it’s done, there’s no going back but people just love to stress me out talking about it.

Every bride i’ve known who got married on a friday or sunday or even thursday said they dont’ regret it at all…and that it turned out fantastic. If people are given plenty of notice, they get off work early, or take the day off all together if they work on saturdya morning. If ur ceremony is late, that helps too. (mine is at 7pm, reception at 9pm)

So, just take things in stride…talk to ur fiance’ and tell him it will be okay so long as everyone gets notice. I had a cousin who got married on a tuesday and she had a fantastic turnout AND it was a destination wedding in Napa. It’s all about planning ahead and that doesn’t register for some guys. personally, I’m not allowing my Fiance to do much of the planning because he wouldn’t understand the urgency of getting hte big things out of the way.

I don’t know if you are on theknot.com but it’s got a cool tool that’s like a checklist that tells you by what time you should have different things booked/reserved. It really helps get things into perspective on what’s more important and what you should just hold off on. One thing at a time hon!
