What day of the week was/is your ceremony?

Happy Saturday, everyone :)

What day of the week was/is your ceremony?  If you did a weeknight (Sun-Thurs), did anyone complain or not come because of work?


We're currently booked on a Saturday night, but could save a LOT of money by doing an in-suite ceremony Sun-Thurs... tempting.  Plus, our guests would save on hotel, too, if they come in Sunday and leave Tues/Wed.

    Mine is Saturday but my sister's was 1:30 in the afternoon on a Tuesday in Lake Tahoe.  The package was cheaper that way.  She had about 30 peple come out.

    I don't get married often, but when I do, I do it in Las Vegas.

    Mine is Saturday June 11, 2011.  We never thought about doing it on a weekday, just our preference and we chose some of the cheaper hotels for room blocks. 

    Do what you want to do, if people are planning on coming to your wedding they will come doesn't matter the day.

    Tuesday! Getting married on the 7th was our top priority, together with doing it in Vegas. I haven't had any complaints about it being on a weekday, but in our field (performing arts) people's schedules are crazy anyways regardless. Saturday or Sunday wouldn't have made a difference, really.

    Thursday! It's the day of the week that works best for us, we leave Saturday for our cruise but wanted to have one day of recovery/stress free day in vegas in between wedding and leaving. We're doing our bachelor/bachelorette parties Tuesday night so most of our guests are planning on being in Vegas the whole week.

    were planning on a saturday. we know its more expensive, but with everyone's schedules if they can only stay a few days at least they wont have to take off as many days for work. sunday would be our second option.

    We are getting married on Sun May 22, but it happens to be a long weekend here in Canada so it worked out great. Guests already had a long weekend without having to book extra time off. I think you should do what you want. Like some of the other knotties have said, if they are going to come, they are going to come. You have to do what is best for you and fits your budget!

    Ours was a Tuesday too. Everyone who came to our wedding flew from the UK or Australia, so made a proper holiday of it, staying a week or so at least. Therefore, our day did not mean people had to take anymore time off.

    Ours was on a Saturday. Granted I am local, but more than half our guests were OOT. It worked out much better for them that it's a weekend that way they won't have to miss work much.

    Saturday - it gave guests the most options in dealing with their work schedule.

    Another Tuesday here!  Everyone is flying so it didn't really matter what day to them; we picked Tuesday because it fit the time we were both allowed to take off work.

    If you're local, I think that  people probably wouldn't mind taking one day off if they knew it wasn't ending really late at night and that they would still be able to get home at a decent hour for work the next day.

    Saturday. We are having ours during the Canadian Thankgiving long weekend so as to limit the amount of time our guests will need to take off work (Thanksgiving isn't a big holiday up here).

    Wednesday here........but agin everyone is flying in from o/s so it would work better than a weekend for direct flights to LAX.

    Mine is Friday. Most of our friends work in the service industry as do we, so whether we did Friday or Saturday we all would have to request off anyway. No one is complaining, if they dont want to come becuase of work thats fine, less money out of our pocket! :)

    The FI and I are getting married on a Saturday. We figure it would be easier for guests as far as work is concerned.

    Friday here!  We are only having family and couple friends come for ours.  I figured since most of the people are pretty much flying across the country they will probably want to make a long weekend out of it.  I know my parents are going to stay with us after the wedding on the strip for a few days because it is going to be there first trip out to Vegas!

    Thursday May 5th here. And in all honesty it was what I wanted! If anybody complained then they didn't have to go! But most people will turn it into a mini vaca. As far as planning it was much better then if I had chose a Sat. Because I waited so long to book vendors.

    My birthday is May 5th :)

    We got marrid on a Thursday. The date was special to us, it happened to fall on a Thursday, and it saved us a boatload on our ceremony package, photographer, and our guests saved a lot on airfare and hotels. Getting married on a non peak day worked well for us.
