If I had to travel any significant distance, I may not attend a Thursday or Monday wedding at all. It honestly would depend on WHOSE wedding it was. I am one of those who works a traditional schedule (M-F; 8-5), but I’m also a parent, so a Thursday or Monday wedding would also mean having to make arrangements for the care of the kids who I’m not going to pull out of school for a wedding.

My wedding will be on a Sunday and I’ve always taken the position to come if you can and if you can’t, I can completely understand. This especially goes for my family who will have to deal with traveling from a completely different state. In this case, it means COMPLETELY that mainly my nieces and nephews would have to miss at least one day of school (Monday). My wedding isn’t as important as their education.

But, if I had to travel a short distance, I’d prefer a Monday. I wouldn’t want to break up my weekend with a work day. LOL

Probably wouldn’t travel more than an hour for a weekday wedding and it would have to be for really close family or friends.  As for Monday or Thursday it would depend on what kind of reception you plan to give.  If it will be a casual, low-key celebration that is over by 9 or 10pm so I can drive home and get a decent night’s sleep before work, then I would say Monday.  If it is going to be more of a party with drinks and dancing then I would prefer Thursday because I can drag through one Friday of work exhausted from a night of partying (it would be daunting to start out my week that way though.)

I’d much prefer a Thursday to a Monday!
