If you’re planning a wedding, you may be considering whether or not to have it on a weekday. This can be a great option for many couples for various reasons! You can save money, have more options for the vendors you want, and have time to actually enjoy the day (or days) with your family and friends and have a better shot at securing your dream venue.
This blog post will discuss some of the benefits of having a weekday wedding.
Here’s Why We Think You Should Consider a Weekday Wedding
Better Chance to Secure Your Dream Venue
If you’ve been dreaming about a specific venue to host your special day, chances are they’ll have more weekday availability than weekend availability. This can be a great way to secure the venue of your dreams.
You can save money. Weekday weddings are often much less expensive than weekend ones because vendors and venues typically charge more for Saturday and Sunday nuptials due to increased demand.
More Vendor Options
You’ll have more options for vendors. If you want to work with a specific vendor, but they only work weekends, you may not be able to book them for your wedding. However, if you have a weekday wedding, there’s a good chance that the vendor will be available.

More Time To Enjoy The Day
You’ll have more time to enjoy the day. Weekday weddings typically start later in the day than weekend weddings, so you’ll have more time to enjoy the festivities. Your guests may also be able to take advantage of discounted rates at your lodging venue of choice if you book a room for the night before or after your wedding.
Opens Up the Weekend for Other Activities
If you’re planning a many-days-long affair, guests will enjoy other group or solo activities on the weekend. Or, guests can use those days for lesser expensive flights! This can be especially helpful if many of your guests are coming from out of town.
More Rooms Available for Guests
If you’re hosting a destination wedding, there will likely be more hotel rooms available throughout the weekend if you choose a weekday over Saturday or Sunday – meaning fewer people will have to share rooms or find lodging elsewhere if they come from out of town.
Weekday weddings are an excellent alternative to weekend weddings. They offer simplicity and affordability, a truly unique celebration to the couple. So now that we’ve made the case, who’s ready to plan their weekday wedding?
