Benefits of Hosting a Weekday Wedding

Updated: Apr 15, 2020

 Any day is a GOOD day for a wedding! There is no rule that says you must marry on Saturday or Sunday. According to the 2019 wedding survey, The Knot wedding report states "1 in 5 weddings now takes place during the workweek ". As an event and wedding planner I have personally helped several couples plan beautiful well attended weekdays weddings and the benefits are endless.

The numbers are on your side. 

 One of the biggest reasons couples choose weekday dates over a weekend is simple math. There is a shortage of weekends when comes to the number of couples who marry each year. 52-weekend divide by the number of couples who marry each year in the greater Houston region which is around 40K, you can see how finding the perfect venue with your preferred wedding date can be a bit stressful. 

Big discounts 

We can not deny that hosting a wedding on a weekday is less expensive. You could save thousands on your venue by choosing a  Monday-Friday. Vendors who offer services rather than products are also willing to offer discounts for weekday bookings. 

Hiring your dream team

The best vendors tend to book up quickly during the wedding season, and if you have your heart set on a preferred vendor choosing a weekday may not only secure your preferred vendor but also save you little money.

Saying I do on your special date 

Do you have a milestone event as a couple and would like to say I do on that date, being open-minded about which day of the week you choose can allow you to celebrate your select date without waiting a couple of years before that dates falls on Saturday.

​​​Think outside the square 

Weekday weddings are nontraditional, so think outside the box to offer your guests an unforgettable experience. We once had a couple who kicked off the evening with a pre-ceremony cocktail party with passed appetizers after the ceremony guests enjoyed a family-style dinner and jazz band. The possibilities are endless when you let your imagination take over. 

Choose a date that works for you and your guests.

​ There is no doubt there are challenges when it comes to ensuring your guests can take leave from work and study to attend a weekday wedding. Consider weekdays during spring break or summer months. ​Weekdays during major holidays like Wednesday before Thanksgiving or the few days after Christmas or the day after New Years'.
