I’m planning a Friday wedding. It wasn’t my original idea but the venue I wanted didn’t have any openings for the weekend. It worked out for the best because we can set up the night before instead. We originally wanted it early in the month so it was a easy pick.
We had a Friday wedding. We were pretty set on a Friday since it saved us several grand to have it on a Friday rather than a Saturday.
There are basically two reasons why we chose to get married on a Friday: A.) It was $1,300 cheaper B.) We could set up the day before. It seemed like a win/win for us.
But we've come across more than one comment from invited guests complaining they'll have to take their kids out of school. So, I guess we'll see. I honestly think they're using it as an excuse to not come.
We're planning a Friday wedding. It saves us about $1000 and since all of our guests are out of state, it gives them Saturday to explore the area and do something they want to do instead of just flying in for our wedding and flying back. Plus Friday is my favorite day of the week
We had a Friday wedding. Yes, we saved $46 pp and had our ceremony for half-price (more than $6,500 in savings!), but we also didn't have the guest count for our original Saturday preference. We got married in a popular month, and most places wanted us to guarantee 175-200+ guests as our minimum. Our venue initially wanted us to guarantee 120, which was more realistic for us, but eventually settled on 100. Ultimately, we had 131 adults and 8 kids under 12 attend the wedding out of 170 invited.
Most of the declines were people who we expected to decline, and no one complained to us about it being on a Friday. Most of our out-of-state guests stayed for an additional night and went home on Sunday.
We chose our date because it was the only Friday available in June at our venue when we booked it 18 months before the wedding!
We’re having one! Honestly, saving money was a perk, but we’re getting married on our anniversary date. It fell on a Thursday this yr and in 2020 it’ll be on a Sunday. So that didn’t leave us much choice, bc I wanted us to keep this date lol
It was pretty easy... Well, after we changed our venue 3x Our wedding was initially planed for Saturday, November 3rd. Then when we started changing our venue it came clear that the 2nd was the only day that they would offer that would work for us, which was a Friday (the date with this venue was based on the AHL Schedule). And then when we moved on from that venue and were picking our 4th and final venue... they don't do weekend weddings so we stuck with Friday the 2nd, which works perfectly because there is a Hockey game on the 1st and 3rd so I won't have to sacrifice missing a game for our wedding Plus it was closest to the date of our Save the Dates.
Friday, November 16! We originally wanted a Saturday, but once we found our venue we made it work and it worked perfectly that our dating monthaversary (the 16th) can now be a part of our wedding date!
Me! Our dream venue was booked almost solid throughout the month of October, and we didn’t have many date options, so we chose a Friday because we sort of had to! But it did give us a slight discount on our food.
We're having a Friday wedding! (October 12th!) We knew we wanted a wedding in October because that's when the weather seems to be nicest in Los Angeles, but we didn't want our wedding too close to Halloween or too close to September when it could potentially still be super hot. So we landed smack dab in the middle of the month. We found our dream venue and originally wanted Saturday the 13th, but it was way out of our budget... but the lovely venue director told us that if we were willing to have a Friday wedding that the cost for the venue would literally be cut in half, which then fit our budget So that's how we came about our Friday wedding; dream venue within budget for the win!
We are having a Friday wedding in off peak season at our venue. Its saved us A LOT of money. We were originally going to have it on 4/19 (a Friday and also my FH's favorite hockey players number hehe) but its Good Friday so we just went a week back!
We chose a Friday wedding because it was cheaper and there were more people willing to work with us on budget pricing. Originally we were thinking we were going to do a "drop in" ceremony at one of the chapels downtown where we live and they were only open on Fridays. Once we started poking around even though we went to our church, it just made more sense.
