Should a Brunch Wedding Be On a Saturday Or Sunday?

Our wedding is 2 years away and we are currently looking at different venues to see which one would be more fitting for our small, intimate wedding. My FH and I discussed the date and we still want the date we have set for now which is on a Saturday in October. However, I've been told that a small brunch wedding should be on a Sunday instead of a Saturday. My FH prefers our date to stay the same and stay on a Saturday and I personally agree with him. However, we would like to hear all your opinions on this and see what you think is best for the kind of wedding we're having. Should we have it on a Saturday morning, or should we move it to a Sunday morning instead?

    I don't see an issue with having a brunch wedding on a Saturday.

    I don’t think it matters at all. As a guest, I wouldn’t have a preference.

    I would probably stick with Saturday because a lot of people attend church on Sundays.

    I think a Saturday brunch wedding is fine. We picked Sunday for our brunch wedding because most of our guests are local and we wanted them to be able to sleep in on Saturday since they work on Friday. Plus, our venue is cheaper on a Sunday. But, I don’t see anything wrong with Saturday either.

    Saturday is preferable for most guests.

    It can be any day you wish. People like a Saturday brunch since it's out of the ordinary

    Either or is fine. I feel like people drink more during brunch so maybe Saturday would be better so no one has to go to work the next day. Cheers! 🥂

    Either or! We were going to have a brunch time wedding on a Saturday. We only didn’t because we postponed.

    I don’t think either day matters since it’s brunch time - but maybe ask if it would be cheaper on Sunday? Usually places are cheaper sundays than Saturday’s

    You can do it on whichever day works best for you guys. It doesn't have to be a specific day

    We planned the "date" not the day, but our Sunrise wedding followed by a breakfast / brunch receptions was on a Saturday morning. I think either day is perfect.
