Weekend weddings vs Weekday Weddings – which is best?

The wedding season is nearly upon us and following the Government’s announcement of an official roadmap to opening up the UK’s economy and hospitality sector, couples around the UK can now look forward to setting a date and sending out those wedding invitations!

However, setting a date can be a difficult task in itself! First you need to decide which season you want to get married in, and then there is the day of the week.

If you’re newly engaged and thinking about setting a date but can’t decide whether you would prefer a weekday or weekend wedding, you’ve certainly landed in the right place. We’ve created a guide outlining the difference between a weekend wedding and a weekday wedding so that you can figure out the best option for you!

Weekend weddings

Weekend weddings are extremely popular, and dates always get snapped up far quicker than weekday options. This is for a number of reasons – they give guests who don’t live in the area time to travel to and from the wedding location, and most people won’t need to take a day off work (or school!). Plus, they give everyone a chance to recuperate on the Sunday, including the happy couple or even meet for a post wedding lunch.

The only downside of a weekend wedding is that, because they are so popular, you may struggle to secure the date you want at your chosen wedding venue or may have to wait longer for your big day.

Weekday weddings

Weekday weddings also come with a number of benefits.

First and foremost, weekday weddings are a lot easier on the pocket, so if you’re struggling to get on top of your wedding budget, choosing a day during the week will instantly free up some much-needed cash to spend on other wedding essentials! After all, Saturday weddings are notoriously expensive and are often booked up as much as two years in advance.

Choosing a weekday wedding will also make it a lot easier to access your first-choice suppliers such as the photographer, videographer, make-up artist, florist, DJ and anything else you need for your special day.

And, although, it’s not the weekend, a weekday wedding also gives you broader access to a whole host of other meaningful dates that fall during the week including the date you met, Valentine’s day, or any other occasion that means something to you and your partner.

The only stumbling block is that the vast majority of people work Monday to Friday, therefore weekend weddings are always much easier to attend. However, one way of looking at it, is that it is also a great way to keep those numbers down, especially if you have an army of family and friends you want to invite to your big day!
