What day of the week are you getting married?

Recommended Posts

Ok, so I have been wondering this for awhile; what day of the week should the actual wedding day fall on? Friday? Saturday?

 

Also, are your guest flying up for the whole week? I was wondering if I should have the wedding on Thursday and let the guest have the next few days to themselves? I DONT KNOW!!!!!!!!!frown.gif

 

Your help will be greatly appreciated!!

It might also be less busy and less expensive to get married on a week day versus a weekend. We're doing a cruise and are limited to getting married on a Tuesday because we chose St. Thomas to get married in and that's when the ship stops there.

 

Whatever you choose, I'm sure the guests would appreciate a few days of relaxation following the festivities.

I am getting married on a Friday. Most of our guests are arriving on Thursday and leaving on Monday. I think that, when you are having a DW, it doesn't really matter which day of the week :) I chose Friday because my mom and a couple of our other guests are teachers and they wouldn't be able to take off a lot of time during the week. This way, they only need to take off 3 days and still get a 5 day vacation!

Ours falls on a Friday, we chose the date not really the day, and we plan to arrive a week before hand to spend time with our guests, and the day after the wedding we are saying good-bye and heading off to our honeymoon for another week.

We decided on a Tuesday. Random, I know. I really went back and forth with this. I wanted a spring wedding but my fiance insisted that we should do it in the winter so it would be a nice warm vacation for everybody (his family is in Canada, mine in Colorado). We decided on February and then I didn't want it too close to my mom/brothers birthday in the beginning or too close to valentines day so we were pretty limited. Our initial thinking was that a weekday would allow some people to come for a short period of time (3,4 days) and get cheaper flights since they would could limit air travel to weekdays. It was hard though because I also thought a weekend wedding would mean they had to take less time off work. You can't really win them all. We arrive on Sunday then the wedding is Tuesday. I like having it at the beginning of our week there so the rest of the time I can relax and not worry about wedding details.

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
