Why Weekday Weddings Aren’t The Worst

Did Coronavirus Postpone Your Big Day? 5 Reasons Why You Should Have a Weekday Wedding

Because of the COVID-19 outbreak, many couples have had to go back to the drawing board in terms of wedding planning. The surge of weddings getting rescheduled will pose a threat to those precious spring and summer weekend dates. But have you considered tying the knot during the week? Studies show that 1 in 5 weddings today occur on a weekday. There can be big advantages to having your wedding outside of the weekend. Here are five reasons why you should have a weekday wedding!

There is Less Competition For Venues on Weekdays – This reason is a no brainer!  You have a much better chance of securing the date and venue you want if you have your event during the week. When things get back to normal, don’t worry about waiting over a year just to score a weekend date in the spring or summer. It will be so much easier to schedule a weekday wedding at your preferred venue.


Weekday Weddings Enable you to Keep Costs Low – Many venues, caterers and other vendors offer discounts for weekday events! They want to utilize their off-days and serve more couples. Even hotels often have cheaper room blocks available during the week, so you’ll be helping your guests save money too!


A Weekday Wedding can be An Intimate Setting – Some of your guests may not be able to attend your weekday wedding. But that does not have to be a bad thing. This could be a chance to have the intimate wedding you really want. It could also be an easy way to slim-down your guest list. Make lemonade out of lemons and have a beautiful small gathering.


Weekday Weddings can offer more Flexibility  Many weekend weddings have specific timelines they have to follow for venues or other vendors. Your weekday wedding can be as flexible as you want! Would you rather start with brunch? Go for it. Want to start the ceremony later in the evening to give your guests time to get there? That’s perfectly fine, too. And if you party hard on Friday night, you will have two full days to recover. The possibilities are endless!


Weekday Weddings can Make Your Day Special – Is there a special date significant for you or your spouse? Always imagined getting married on the same day as your parents? Who says Saturday is the only day you can get married? Make your wedding special and get married on the day that feels right for you! Tying the knot on the day you specifically chose will lead to amazing memories for you, your spouse and your guests.

Weekday weddings come with so many benefits that you may not have known! And you don’t have to be alone in your planning. Check out our list of amazing local wedding planners. You’ll be walking down the aisle of your weekday wedding in no time.
