Ok- So I'm getting married on a Wednesday, and have suggested that people arrive on Saturday. I understand most people do a weekend wedding, but were doing it differently. The thought was, that most of the places to stay are cheeper when you book 7 days. And since the cermeony is on a wednesday, then you have to be there until Thursday anyhow, and if your there until thursday you may as well stay until Saturday, assuming that our guests work mon-friday. Plus there are no flights tuesday and wednesday, so flying in the day before is a no-go.
So now when talking to people they are coming on a monday and then staying until friday- and that is throwing me for a loop- am I crazy or are they? We have events planed starting Saturday- although optional, we would like to share these things with our core friends and family. I feel like there is a bunch of resistance and I'm not sure why. Once they get there they will be so sad to leave- I just know it.
Typing this all out makes me sound like a crazy bride, but I just don't get these people!
I wish there was a poll option because I would like to know if all of you are doing weekend weddings am I alone in having a weekend week?
