    I am still debating on the day of the week of having my wedding so can you please share your insights? I want to have it on a friday Jan 22 2010. but I also have heard that weekend weddings are crazy busy... Did you have yours on a weekend and how did it turn out?

      I had mine on a Saturday only because we have a lot of family in JA and they are working and going to school so we had to consider that.

      If most of my family would have been coming down with me I would have probably done it in the middle of the wk.

      Something else to consider, is when would you be flying out.

      There were only flights out of Toronto, Canada on Sat, Sun or Mon to get a package deal. We went on a Monday. It worked out great for me and gave me enough time to relax and get everything together, but you may want to have yours early to give you more time to relax after the wedding.

        Haven't had mine yet but its on thurs Jan 22/09. Funny eh??
        I think it will turn out good as we will arrive the saturday so it leaves lots of time to make arrangements with the coordinator and have some fun with ours guests.

          I'm having mine on a Friday so that people can take a long weekend (if they're not coming for the whole week). The wedding will be Friday, the guests can relax on Saturday, and then fly home on Sunday.

            We are having it in on a Monday. I wanted to avoid the crazyness of the weekends... and I figured it would be a good time as our guests will likely be travleing either Sat-Sat or Sat-Wed.

                  Same as Ochoriobride, except I havent gotten married yet! when it came time to pick a date for April we were only stuck with Tuesdays and Fridays. I prefered the Tuesday because most of our guests will be leaving on the Saturday and that wouldnt have been fun for them to wake up to if we had it on the Saturday.

                    We are having it on a Sat only b/c lots of family and friends are teachers or are still in college. Some just don't have alot of vacation and other have young kids so they can only come for a long weekend.
                    Saturday just worked the best for them so that's what we did - if it was just us we'd do the middle of the week - less crowds.
                    **Shannon** 40 people BOOKED! (but only 23 made it b/c of the Swine flu Pandemic )

                      we arrive thursday, having the wedding the following wednesday then leave the following Thurs. There 2 weeks altogether, seems silly coming all the way fromthe UK with 23 family members to ony stay a few days. its also easter so not may days to choose from!
