A weekday wedding might sound like an unusual idea, but there are many benefits that come from choosing to plan your wedding day during the week. Weekends are typically chosen when planning for a wedding, but maybe a weekday wedding is right for you!
Weekday weddings are typically less expensive than weddings on the weekend. There is more availability in venues, catering companies, and other wedding vendors that people choose for their weekday weddings since they don't have weddings to plan on weekends as well. Many sources indicate that wedding vendors offer discounts or special deals for weekday events.* You can also take advantage of your weekday wedding to negotiate special pricing with vendors if they don’t already have discounts in place.
Weekday weddings are also a great idea for people who would like to avoid the weekend wedding rush and keep their special day low-key. With no other weddings on the same day, you can make your own rules and be as unique as you want with your wedding! On top of this, your wedding is much less likely to clash with other events that are typically planned on weekends.
In order to successfully plan a weekday wedding, it is important to invite your guests significantly ahead of time so that they can plan accordingly. Your invitees will appreciate the extra time so that they can make accommodations in order to attend. Another important factor is to schedule the weekday wedding for the evening time to further accommodate guests who work typical workday hours. And lastly, providing your guests generous or meaningful favors at your wedding is a great idea to thank them for attending a weekday wedding that might not be as convenient for guests.***
