You have just gotten engaged, and now it’s time to figure out the wedding date. Hidden Creek has some tips for you if you want to save a LOT of money. Our secret is to have your wedding on a Friday or Sunday. Now, we know what you’re thinking. “That’s crazy, why would I have my wedding on any other day than a Saturday?” Although a Friday or Sunday wedding was not something you were considering at first, we have listed some reasons that make these days appealing. Here’s something to think about.
Hidden Creek highly recommends getting married on a Sunday if that Monday is a holiday. This gives your guest all day Friday and all day Saturday to travel. They will surely appreciate this extra day. The great thing about Sunday weddings on a holiday weekend is that you get two Saturdays in one weekend. You can have your rehearsal dinner that Saturday and go out for some drinks with your visiting guests later that day. Then, they have the Monday holiday to travel back home. And if Thursday is a holiday, then you can get married on that Friday. Aside from the extra time, you will also save tons of money.
If you decide on a Friday or Sunday wedding, your bank account will be very thankful. There are discounts with venues and vendors on these days. Since they are not as popular as Saturdays, venues and vendors offer financial motives to get your consideration. Venues like Hidden Creek, and vendors such as DJs, photographers, caterers, etc. will have deals that make Friday and Sunday weddings a steal. You can invest the extra money into your honeymoon, a house, etc.
When you have a Friday wedding, you can have the rehearsal at the venue on that Thursday night, and then go out to dinner after. If you have a Saturday wedding, then you won’t be able to do the rehearsal on Friday night. The venue will most likely be rented out. You will have to do your rehearsal two nights or three nights before the wedding, which you do not want to do.
Relaxed Sunday Weddings
Sunday weddings are great, especially if you decide to do a brunch wedding. Who doesn’t love mimosas, waffles, and breakfast burritos? Brunch weddings are making a huge comeback, as many people are really interested in them right now. It creates a relaxed, fun atmosphere. We especially recommend these types of weddings if you don’t have a huge dance crowd. Brunch weddings take the pressure off of making a dance floor and having a party vibe. Instead, you can have a calm Sunday afternoon spent chatting with your family and friends.
If you don’t want to wait two years to have your wedding, a Friday or Sunday wedding is the solution. Saturdays book up so far in advance that it becomes super stressful to find vendors and venues available for your ideal date. You will have a better choice of venues and vendors if you opt for the other two days of the weekend. Plus, you will have the opportunity to get married a lot sooner.
