    We are Friday but thats more coincidence than choice.

    We have set our hearts on our wedding date which is 10 years to the day that we first met. It could be any day of the week as far as we're concerned as long as we got our chosen date. Having said that all our guests are travelling from the U.K for a 2 week holiday so the day of the week doesnt make a difference to them either.

      We're getting married on a Monday...at first we had asked for a couple specific dates (Thursday & Fridays for guests wanting to do a long weekend only) only to find out they were taken each time. When we just finally asked for dates available the dates offered were all so random but one happened to be our anniversary. So our wedding date will be our 4 year dating anniversary making it one less date to remember considering the fact that we'll be married on paper before the actual mx ceremony :)

        Monday, 8.9.10! We just wanted early August for people who are in school and some time with our guests before the ceremony. I knew from the start I didn't want a Saturday because of higher costs and problems with availability.

            We will be married on a Wednesday, because it lands on January 13, which is our anniversary for the first day we went out.

                Our wedding day is on a Thursday.....I have read mixed reviews regarding this because our resort hacienda has a mexican festival on Thursday nights. We are thinking that we will just continue our wedding party into the wee hours of the night at the festival!

                    We're getting married on a Wednesday. Our entire group is flying down with us on a Sunday and the WC suggested we meet with her the day after we arrive, give them a day to get organized, have the wedding and then have the rest of the week to relax and hang out! Plus some our guests requested a wedding early in the week so they're not sunburned and hungover for pictures. :)

                      I think mid week weddings are a really good option, if you can do it. The beaches are a lot quieter and you will have a better chance to work with the vendors of your choice as there are fewer mid-week weddings than week-end.

                      Just a friendly heads-up about August weddings in Mexico. It is VERY, VERY humid and VERY, VERY hot. I have photographed several weddings in Mexico during this month and have seen brides, grooms and entire wedding parties literally melt in front of my camera. Things I recommend to my clients: wear the lightest weight dress you can find that is made from natural material and that is breathable. Choose comfortable shoes that have air flow. If your feet get sweaty in tight shoes, the result can be nasty blisters (I seen it happen.... not too nice). If you have long hair it will be much cooler with it up. If people wear jackets, long sleeved shirts or the colour black, by the end of the ceremony they will be standing in a puddle of their own sweat.

                      I am from Canada so I understand North America fashion sense for weddings but I also now live and work in Mexico, so I can safely say that in the heat of August try to think functional (ie how can my fiance and I keep cool, how can my wedding party and guests keep cool) over what would be appropriate in the USA or Canada. The heavy and/or luxurious materials, and formal, layered attire that are certainly appropriate for North American weddings are simply not practical for weddings in Mexico in August, during other times in the year perhaps, but not August.

                      The good news about August weddings in Mexico: it is one of the best months for long, beautiful sunsets; the overall expense of your wedding will be less than in other times of the year and you can negotiate a better price with ALL vendors (hotel, flowers, wedding coordinator, food, everything!); and '000's of sea turtles come to lay their eggs on the beaches. Joining a group to search for turtle eggs and to help release baby turtles into the ocean can make for a unique and memorable activity.

                      I hope you find my advice helpful. If you have any questions, I'd be happy to help out.
