    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!!!!!!!!!

    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!

            I have merged your thread with another thread asking the same questions.

              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.
