Congrats- we might be day twins- my SO and I initially chose 12/12/12 but after speaking to my “mommy” about it- we might just do 12/8

How do you think you are going to do the wedding on a Wednesday?

We thought about doing 12 12 12 too but the Wednesday thing kinda threw us off.

I am doing my wedding on 12-12-12!  Yes, on a Wednesday!  Our church/mass ceremony will begin at 5pm and our reception will start at 6:30pm-12midnight.  Initially, I was so worried about booking anything wedding related on a Wednesday.  Now that it is done- WOW- I am so happy with this.  We have a small guest list to begin with (50-70max) and almost everyone has said they would definitely be there and we have yet to send out our “save the date” cards!!!  Our priest laughed and said he has never done a Weds wedding and thought Friday was unusual.  He is so happy since he will not feel rushed in anyway like Sat weddings.  Our gorgeous venue by phone gave us one quote and in person they were so amazing and desperately ready to work with us.  We got a fantastic deal!  Normally they charge for bringing outside liquor -no charge.  Charge for cake cutting- no charge.  Charge 25% for service – no charge.   This is the same caterers for the Kardasians events and weddings including Kim’s last event so I did not expect this at all!  Our lighting costs $1000 but on a Weds it will be just $300!  It is crazy!  The best thing is staffing– we have the venue until 3am if we wanted and with security.  On a weekend, I would get maybe 2hrs before and 30mins to vacate the premise after we are done.  As for bringing anything into the venue (card boxes, favors, wishing tree, flowers, place cards, decor, chair covers whatever) they are giving us the go ahead to start the day before if we like.  We were planning to hire someone to do all this during the day of the wedding but my fiance and I decided heck it would be fun  and would be “perfectly done” if we just did it ourselves the night before!  I will definitely come in way under budget in Los Angeles and without trying at all!  I don’t know many brides that can say the same thing! I think we can take TWO honeymoons now!
