Saturdays are still the most popular day to get married. But this ever-present popularity often means Brides must make very quick wedding decisions in order to get the venue and vendors that they really want. After all there are only a certain number of Saturday’s available each year!
Let’s look at 3 reasons why a Friday wedding may be a good option to consider.
1. Many venues offer a discount on pricing for an on Saturday wedding.
Maybe you’ve always wanted to have a wedding at a certain location but when the time comes to actually book the venue that second Saturday in June opening is no longer available! Saturday’s tend to fill up very quickly for wedding venues, but by opening up the possibility of having a wedding on Friday you increase your chances of scoring your perfect venue and there’s a good chance you’ll receive a discounted price!
2. You’ll have more time to spend with your guests.
But having your wedding take place on a Friday you can extend the postnuptial fun by having Bridal brunches and getting your guests involved in local activities the rest of the weekend. It will help you enjoy the day of your actual wedding a little more because you won’t feel rushed. You can relax a bit knowing you’ll still have plenty of time to hang out with guests before you leave on your honeymoon on Sunday.
3. A wider range of vendors will be available to you.
Since wedding venues are reserved quickly for Saturday date it only makes sense that your favorite vendors will be booked in lightning speed as well for those Saturdays. Although you may not be able to have everything perfect on your wedding day you should strive to get as much as you can the way you want it. By getting married on a Friday you’ll have a greater chance of getting to book more of the vendors you want there will be a higher number of photographers Caterers Etc available to you if you’re open to an on Saturday date this also means that you’ll get to choose from the highest quality vendors not just who’s left.
I am glad to have been able to share these perks of having a Friday wedding with you all. If you’re a bride or soon-to-be bride planning her wedding I highly recommend considering a Friday evening for your wedding!
