While a weekend wedding may be the first place your mind goes when picking a date, there are lots of couples who are opting for a weekday wedding instead. You may have never envisioned a Thursday wedding, but…we challenge you to reconsider. There are many benefits to choosing a weekday wedding, and below we have listed out just a few. Keep reading to learn 5 reasons you should consider a weekday wedding!
1. An Intimate Affair
While yes, it can be difficult for some of your guests to make it to a weekday wedding, the people who mean the most will always make an effort to be there, no matter what day of the week you choose.
2. Accommodate Special Dates
Were you hoping to get married the day you two started dating, or maybe you want to share a wedding date with a special time in your lives? Weekday weddings can be a great way to mark any significant dates that you would like to continue celebrating for years to come.
3. Better Travel Rates
While weekend weddings may be the most convenient, they aren’t always the most cost-friendly to travel on. Weekday weddings will ensure your guests won’t pay the weekend’s premium prices for airfare, hotels and more. Help your guests out by choosing to have your wedding during the week!
4. Better Vendor Rates
We get it, venues, vendors and delivery fees can add up quickly. One great thing about having a weekday wedding is that you may be able to save a little; some vendors offer discounts for events Monday-Thursday, as this is generally the slower days of the week for most vendors.
5. More Availability
Venues book up FAST…and The Estate at Cherokee Dock is no exception to this fact. Like many venues, our on-season 2020 weekends have been long gone for quite a while now, and we’re almost exclusively booking for 2021. But if you have the flexibility, you can still secure the venue of your dreams by planning a weekday wedding in 2020.
