Picking the perfect wedding date is very big decision with lots of little details to consider, but before setting your heart on a Saturday wedding day, take a look at some of the enormous benefits to getting married on a Friday.
Yes, we know Friday is still technically part of the work week, but that doesn’t mean it’s a bad choice for your big day! In fact, there are several reasons that Friday might be the perfect day to say, “I Do!”
Save some serious dough!
The biggest advantage to a Friday wedding is the savings, and these savings are BIG. Typically, venues and vendors have greater availability on Friday and try to fill up slots by reducing prices. Here at NOAH’S, we charge at least $700 less for a Friday event than a Saturday one. Combining this with estimated savings on a photographer, hair/makeup artist, caterer, and more, you’re looking at thousands of dollars saved!
Spend time with guests on Saturday.
The Saturday after your Friday wedding can be spent relaxing and enjoying time with your family and friends. Maybe you could chat over brunch or catch a movie with out-of-town loved ones! Spending a few days to visit is a nice way to recap your special day and extend the celebration. More and more couples are opting for Friday weddings for this very reason. While the couple gets to bask a little longer in the wedding spotlight, their guests have an entire weekend to hit up local spots and spend quality time with those they love.
You can get to the altar quicker!
Because Saturdays and Sundays are so popular for weddings, venues are often booked out months and months in advance. In fact, you could be looking at over a year to snag your weekend wedding date! If you want to say “I Do” as soon as possible, booking your wedding on a Friday can make it easier to find available vendors and a venue with short notice.
Catch the sunset glow.
What’s not to love about taking time off work? And a wedding is a great reason to do it! But if you’re nervous to ask that of your guests, there’s a simple solution. Start the ceremony after the workday and take advantage of a later wedding celebration. A stunning sunset is the perfect natural backdrop to a ceremony, and spending your wedding day sleeping in, grabbing food, and visiting with family members is a fun and easy way to shake of wedding jitters.
While this may seem silly, it’s probably worth mentioning that banks are open on Saturdays. Depositing checks the day after your wedding can help pay for a honeymoon, date night, or day of relaxing. In any case, getting that money into the bank as soon as possible is a huge benefit of a Friday wedding day.
Couples everywhere are taking advantage of Friday wedding dates to save money and spend more time with loved ones. Being flexible on your wedding date could come with tons of benefits! Take a moment to really consider the advantages of a Friday wedding. After all, a Friday wedding could be perfect for you and your partner.
