3 Solid Reasons to Consider a Friday Wedding

Fridays are everyone’s favorite day of the week because the workweek is finally over and the fun and relaxation can begin. When you plan a Friday wedding, the end of the week gets even better! Your guests will love looking forward to your wedding to kick off the weekend. Plus, there are ample benefits to a Friday wedding that must be considered. Read on to learn more about why Fridays are the ideal day to tie the knot.


1. Budget-Friendly

Saturdays are the most traditional day to host a wedding but that can cost you a premium price from venues and vendors alike. Since Fridays are considered off-peak, many venues and vendors will offer special discounted pricing so they can get them booked. When you reach out to inquire on pricing, don’t be afraid to ask if they offer special rates for Fridays. You could save yourself a pretty penny and not sacrifice on the fun and party vibe. You’ll be able to take those savings and enjoy them on your honeymoon instead!


2. More Time with Guests

When your wedding is on a Friday, that means that you have the whole rest of the weekend to spend it how you’d like. Get creative and plan special moments on the following Saturday or Sunday to make the occasion extra memorable for you and your guests. Host a morning brunch to open gifts with your guests, decompress with a spa day with your bridesmaids, or have an extra day to pack for your honeymoon. Whatever you do, you’ll have the time for it! This will also allow your guests to take their time and enjoy the weekend instead of having to travel back home and jump back into the workweek so quickly.


3. Book Quality Vendors

Since Saturdays are the most common day of the week to get married, the best venues and vendors tend to get booked months or even years out. You want the best of the best in the industry to help you bring your vision to life. Maybe your priority is to get the best DJ in town to entice your guests to boogey on the dance floor. Or you found an incredible photographer you’ve been following on Instagram for months and you want them to capture your wedding day magic. Top-tier vendors may already be booked up for this season (and next!) on Saturdays. When you are planning a Friday wedding, it’s more likely these quality vendors have availability to be a part of your wedding day team.

The same goes for venues. The best venues are in demand for good reason. They are the venues with the list of great amenities and vendor partners to make your day smooth and easy to plan, the one with the perfect size space for your guest list, and a picturesque scene that will make your images one to adore for years to come. Venues will also have more availability on Fridays so you can tie the knot just the way you envision.
