    It depends. Are they both evening weddings? If so I’d prefer Friday. But some of your guests may have to take off work early which is a bit inconvenient. If its Sunday but earlier in the day then that would be my preference. Most people I know would rather take off work early on a Friday and have Saturday to rest than be out late on a Sunday and have to get up for work Monday. Depends on your guests.

    I’d rather go a to a sunday wedding. If it’s a close friend I’ll take Monday off.

    musicluvr325 :  I’d rather go to a weekend wedding, but if it’s Sunday it would be better if it’s an earlier party, due to work the next day. Friday weddings I’ve choosed to forego since sometimes it has meant me taking off days at work, especially if there is travel involved. If it was a Friday wedding locally, i’d forego the ceremony and just attend the reception later on.

    I would prefer a Friday evening wedding if it was close enough to travel to, so I wouldn’t have to take work off. But we are having a Sunday wedding haha! About half of our guests will be from overseas so the day of the week won’t really matter for them. The others who will have to take off work on Monday haven’t seemed to mind (or at least not that I’ve heard).

    I’ll be honest, I would rather go to a Friday evening wedding (like start at 5 or 6). Then I don’t have to worry about getting up the next morning. If it’s a Sunday wedding, I would prefer a morning/brunch wedding (also helps to keep costs down).

    I’m happy either way with a late night Friday party (so like, starting ceremony at 7) or an earlier Sunday Brunch wedding (ending at like 5 or 6).

    I’d not be happy with a Friday ‘normal time’ wedding, or a Sunday late night wedding.

    I’m more up for a party at the start of the weekend and locals will keep a Sunday wedding more low key. Either involves a day off work for out of town guests. A lot might have to take both Thursday and Friday off work to get there on time for a Friday wedding though… which I would be happy to do for a good friend!

    I like evening weddings, so I would prefer Friday night. Keep in mind if you are in a busy city, Friday rush hour may delay both guests and vendors.

    I would prefer Friday. Or if its on a Sunday, early in the day like from 11-4. I went to a Sunday night wedding this year and I felt bad because we had to leave early because we had work the next day. We coudln’t fully enjoy the experience.

    musicluvr325 :  I voted Friday. Are any of your guests religious? You have to account for that because they may have commitments to go to church on Sunday and won’t want to miss it. I know I wouldn’t be happy to attend a Sunday wedding and miss church.

    Depending on the commute, 9 or 10 pm would be too late for me on a Sunday evening as I like to be in bed around then for work the next day. If I’d be traveling for the wedding, it’d make little difference to me since I’d be asking for a day off work either way.

    We chose a Friday wedding since a lot of FI’s family will be flying down to come, and we wanted to make a weekend out of it. We’re having it at a hotel and we’re considering hosting FI’s grandfather’s birthday party there the day after since most of his family was planning on staying there anyway.

    From the venues I looked at you really don’t save much $$ having your wedding on a Friday/Sunday than you would on a Saturday. It was like $2K max. I would go for a Saturday during an off-peak month.

    I can’t choose b/w Friday or Sunday they are both kinda crappy cuz Friday people have to miss work to attend and Sunday you cant get drunk.
