Weekday Weddings: Why they are actually a great idea!

Let’s get real, weddings are an expensive event. As many DIY items you may have, or as much help you get from friends and family, you can still count on spending thousands of dollars on your special day. 

This is one of the reasons why we have seen an increase to weekday weddings. About 20% of our YJ Weddings happen on a weekday. Not completely sold on this idea yet? Check out these weekday wedding facts that may make you change your mind! 

More Bang for Your Buck
Your ceremony and reception venues will offer their lowest rates for a weekday wedding. All food and drink beverages will be at an all time low. Never thought you could afford a surf and turf dinner on your big day? By choosing a date on a weekday, you may be able to! This also gives you more money for special detail like flowers, favors, and linens. 

Options Galore!
Wedding venues and vendors love weekday weddings! We are more open during the week and welcome the change! Plus, venues are not as booked up during the week so you can pick you perfect location and date to ensure you have the wedding you have always dreamed of! 

Intimate Guest List
It is true, weekday weddings are not the most convenient for most people. This may cause your wedding to be a little more intimate then you originally thought. But remember, those who really want to be there, will do anything to make it work and will be there for you on your big day. This way you will look out during your reception and know everyone and will still be in close contact with them for years after. 

Weekend Fun!
If you plan your wedding for a Monday, you have the entire weekend to prep, creative activities for you guest, and relax a little before your big day! All activities can be planned and themed to match your wedding vibe! 

Travel Expenses
Weekday weddings are great way to save on travel cost for you and your guest! If you decide to have a destination wedding, or are jet-setting off to your honeymoon the day after- most travel fees are cheaper during the week. Your guest will also be thankful for lower price in airfare and hotel rooms. They are already taking the time off, now they can save some money on weekday rates! 

Whichever day you choose remember, it is all about you and your fiancé, those who matter will love and support your decision on one of the biggest days of your life!
