Thinking about a ceremony on a Sunday for less money. Did anyone else consider this?

    I'm doing a Sunday wedding. We were hoping to get married on a Saturday. But hey it worked out. We will be getting married May 24th, which is the Sunday of memorial day weekend. So it's nice, because our guest and we get that Monday off.

    I'm considering it because the date we want is a Sunday, but most venues I fall in love with don't allow Sundays. But we'll find out.

    We are having a Sunday brunch wedding. It saved us some money but it was the date we wanted that drew us to the Sunday. I can’t wait to celebrate with our family 10/4/20

    We did a Sunday brunch wedding mostly because of scheduling (so we could have a rehearsal and welcome party on a Saturday.) We and several members of the wedding party are doctors so scheduling can be really tough for us. Initially we thought we’d have to be back at work Monday but we both got Monday off. We also saved a bit on our catering bill for a Sunday event!

    We loved our wedding and got a ton of compliments about the delicious brunch buffet! That catering discount meant we could go absolutely all-out.


    We had a few rabble-rousers (myself included) who made sure we had a great early afternoon dance party. We used a byob venue so we served beer, wine, and two signature drinks (mimosas and bloody Mary’s) plus champagne for toasts. People did drink and enjoy themselves but it wasn’t as boozy as a Saturday night party. I got compliments from the non-drinkers and moderate drinkers in the wedding party that they really enjoyed having a festive but not super-drunk atmosphere.

    Originally we picked a Saturday but when we found out how much we'd save with a sunday wedding we decided to go with that and figured those who truly wanted to celebrate with us would be there regardless.

    My wedding is this Sunday! It really only worked for us because half of our guests were local and the other half were from very far away, so they wanted to take time off anyway and make a vacation out of it. If you have some guests who might need to drive a few hours or take a short flight, it does complicate things because then they might have to take Monday off, go to work later Monday or leave your wedding early. Our wedding is a later afternoon - evening wedding, so we realized that it would complicate things for people who lived kind of far away, but we didn't want to pay the additional $4k+ just to have it on a Saturday.

    We are having a Sunday ceremony. October weddings in KY are popular, and we didn’t want to bind other commitments people may have. We are also planning a brunch-themed menu, and thought Sunday sounded better for that.

    Plus, a lot of venues are cheaper on Sundays or having another event (ours has a storytelling event every year), so it ended up being necessary.

    My ceremony is on Sunday because the venue was completely booked for almost two years on Saturday's. It was almost completely book for Sunday’s and Friday’s as well. We decided to do the ceremony an hour earlier (3pm) than they normally do at the venue. That way locals could still get home at a decent time if they decide to still work on Monday.

    Yep we did. Our wedding is on a Sunday bc it is cheaper and most of our guests are in the area of driving to and from the wedding. We have about 6 or 7 guests who are out of town and those guests will take have to take Monday off.

    Yes! I am having a Sunday wedding! It is more affordable so why not (is what we thought). I do have a heavily religious family that attends church on Sundays but if it is in the afternoon it will not be an issue.

    I highly recommend this! Also the rehearsal dinner will not have to be on a Friday (when people have to work) Saturday gives your guest plenty of time to travel to the wedding location and you can have a rehearsal dinner then.

    Lastly...everyone loves an excuse to take off Mondays! Guests will enjoy that they can then take Monday off instead of a Friday Smiley smile

    I was very up in the air about a Sunday wedding, and didn’t actually decide on a Sunday wedding until I was in one. The major key is to not start the ceremony too late, plan backwards from a comfortable eating time for dinner. As my MIL has said from day one, the people who love you will be there no matter what day you choose.

    We picked a sunday wedding date! August 2nd 2020

    because we are having a destination wedding in Old Orchard Beach Maine all of the cottage rentals (which we are getting for our honeymoon as well) check in is saturday. so we go up saturday the day before the wedding get everything all set up and go from there.


    sure sunday isnt ideal for guests but because it is destination most will take a few days off anyways so it all works

    our particular venue is the same price though no matter what day you get married.

    plus our ceremony is right on the beach too

    I am doing a Sunday wedding in Vegas February 2020. I think it's a great idea because I was able to get discounts on venue, photographer, etc. Also got discounts because of the time of the year I am having my wedding is slow. I say go for it. You may have better negotiating power!!!
