    We chose our day to be during the week in that we live in a resort town where no one has Saturday Sunday "weekends". Our days off are always Wednesday & Thursday hence the reason we choose Thursday to get married on. Who wants to be the same as everyone else and get married on a Saturday?! Stick with your date, it's YOUR day! =)

      [QUOTE=mummergirl;738484]is it not far enough away that people would have to take at least a few days in order to be there? QUOTE]

      No, our wedding location is in the US, but we have people coming from Colorado, Missouri, and Virgina. And I don't know how they feel about travel and whatnot. I am to the point where I just don't care.

        Yep I agree with the other gals, stick to your day. If they can't deal with the fact that it's on a Wednesday, then tough. And Carly's right, not everyone is gonna be pleased, so screw it -- do your thing and be happy Sometimes wedding guests can be such a pains in the ass!

          ours was on a Thursday. our reasoning for that was people were going to HAVE to take time off to make it to the wedding, so why not have it on a day where the beaches won't be filled with locals. Nobody complained to me.....at least not to my face. :)

            Ours is on a Thursday. Most guest are coming Tuesday-Saturday so it is in the middle of their stay. We weren't thinking about anyone else or what people might think when we selected Thursday.

            Do days really matter when your on vacation?

              I'm a teacher and I have students leaving for up to 10 days on vacation sometimes. Actually, during the second last week of June there is a camp that usually more than half of my class attends which means that they miss a whole week of school then too. Missing a few days of school won't be a huge deal for the teacher...not for me anyway...it happens ALL the time! We can handle it!

                    Don't move the date just becasue it is unconventional, they are just being silly. They are all going to be on vacation anyway so what does it matter...right? If they're coming, they're coming so just tell them to shove it.
