    Mine was on a Friday. It was nice cause my family took off Thursday and Friday from work, and made it a long weekend.

    I've attended many Friday weddings that were a blast and pretty large guest counts

    I think Friday is a perfect day to get married, you can truly make it a weekend event.

    (fun mention that 5-21 is actually my birthday lol)

    Friday is fine. Been to many Friday weddings that were a blast! We’re getting married on 4/3/21 because we love the date which lands on a Saturday. Kinda wish it was a Friday so we could have the weekend before flying out on Monday for our honeymoon.

    I say do what you want. My friend got married on a Friday and many of us had to travel for her wedding. People get the next day off so they can party.

    Friday is definitely fine for a wedding! My fiance and I intentionally chose a Friday wedding, and my sister had a Friday wedding too. People that want to be there will find a way to attend.

    I did and it was even more controversial since we have Jewish family who are supposed to observe Friday as seder, but everyone was fine with it. It also allows people traveling a weekend to themselves to recover before heading back to work.

    We decided a Friday wedding as well! Have the price and still a lot of fun! It gives everyone an excuse to leave work a few hours early which is a plus! Congrats on your engagement! We’re getting married 7/22/22!

    We’ve been to many Friday night weddings and they are great. I would get my STD’s out a little early so people can plan to take off work if needed.

    As long as the bulk of your guests don't have school or something like that.

    Friday weddings are fine most people are off the weekend and a lot of venues sometimes offer a discount for Friday and Sunday weddings

    Friday weddings are super popular. I live in NY and the cost of a Friday wedding is almost the same as a Saturday wedding.

    Friday's are total fine.

    I think that in 2021 we will see an increase in Friday weddings - a lot of ppl postponed their weddings from 2020, plus newly engaged ppl. There are only so many Saturdays in a year.

    I'd say it is not ideal for guests, but if you start it at 6:00 p.m. or later, that would be fine.
