    I’d say Sunday, but depending on the style of reception, a Friday might be better. (I.e. so one wouldn’t have to go to work early on Monday after a late night).

    If its just a ceremony, both are fine, but I prefer Friday.

     

    If you’re having a reception too, Friday is tons better…most people can enjoy the night fully knowing they don’t have to end the night early for work the next day!

    Sunday.  For either I would have to take time off work.  For Friday I would need to leave work way early so I can go home, get ready and get to the ceremony.  At least with the Sunday ceremony i’m free to get ready at my owm pace and if i want to drink and stay out late, I could just take a few hours off monday morning.

    Are you having a dinner/dance reception? If so then definitely a friday – that way I can party all night!

    If it is a restaurant reception and most of your guests are local than I would say either is fine!

    i say friday because i like to shorten the end of the week, rather than have to go back to work right after the most fun part of the weekend! plus if you are religious people might want to go to church on sunday (depending on time and stuff)

    I think it totally depends on where your guests live.  As an out of town guest, the difference between me taking off Friday to travel and Monday to travel is really not an issue.  If I lived near you, I’d have to leave work early on Friday, but I wouldn’t necessarily need to take off after a Sunday.  I had a Sunday wedding, the reception ended around 10, and it was great.

    Are you just having a ceremony or are you having a ceremony or reception?  I think both days are great.  I have been to a couple Sunday morning and Friday evening ceremony/receptions.  The Sunday morning ones were smaller and the reception following was more like a champagne brunch-no dancing or anything like that.  The Friday evening ones were more like your typical Saturday night bashes, just on a Friday.  I really liked both, each gives off their own vibe.

    I think for me it would depend on how far the wedding was from me.  If it was close, Sunday or Friday but if it was a few hours drive Sunday would not work for me.

    For me, the timing would matter a little.  If it were an evening wedding, I would prefer Friday.  If it’s earlier in the day (presumably when I’d be at work on Friday), I’d say Sunday.

    For some it is easier to cut the week short instead of missing a busy Monday. You might feel like you spend the whole week catching up if you missed the start of the week.

    I would say Sunday. Friday feels like more of a party since you don’t have to get up early the next day, but it’s a lot harder to make it to a Friday wedding after working all day. Not everyone can take the afternoon/day off from work whenever they want to.

    Definitely Friday. Sunday I need to rest before the upcomming week.
