5 reasons to get married on a weekday!
1. A Shot At Better Photos

During weekdays, you can get some stunning shots on your wedding day that you might otherwise have not been able to get due to the hustle and bustle of a weekend.Some scenic locations can be in use by the public or other guests during busy periods, but weekday weddings allow your photographer to be a little more creative and artistic with their choice of photography options and locations.If you want that perfect spot all to yourself, booking off-peak or on a weekday is a great shout. It also allows you to ease your nerves and relax and enjoy posing for your photographs when no one else is around.Ever wonder how couples got those amazing photographs in usually busy areas or popular tourist spots? Weekday wedding baby!

2. You Can Save Money

This is one of the best and most common reasons to have a weekday wedding. From venues to suppliers, food, and more, you can save money all around on your wedding planning with preferential off-peak rates.For venues in particular, it is almost always the case that the fee for hire is lower for off-peak and midweek weddings in comparison to a busy Saturday at the height of summer.Other suppliers looking to fill the calendar may also offer weekday wedding discounted rates.

3. Access To Preferred Venues & Vendors

Found that perfect wedding venue? The pain of sorting through suppliers and venues, only to realise they aren’t available until the actual future when we will probably have hovercars and jetpacks is one that we know all too well.Some suppliers can be booked up years in advance, leaving couples disappointed and having to settle for less.The same goes for venues and other wedding suppliers. A major advantage of getting married on a weekday is the choice you have available for locations, venues, suppliers and more.

4. You Could Get Even More Time With Loved Ones

Getting married on a Thursday will let you enjoy your entire weekend of activities and quality time with family and friends.After a weekend wedding, most guests leave on the Monday (or even the Sunday) and don’t have enough time to enjoy the company of friends, family and loved ones during the buzz and excitement of the actual wedding day..This is one the reasons why we think a Thursday wedding is super underrated. If guests want to celebrate, recover and catch up with people who have attended the wedding, they could spend the whole weekend with you and the people whom you don’t have around very often.

5. Your Guests Can Save On Flights & Accommodation

As much as it’s nice to save money on your own wedding planning, you have to think about how costly attending a wedding can be for your guests too.It’s often an afterthought but your guests may appreciate a midweek celebration more as it can sometimes work out cheaper for them in terms of travel and accommodation.This puts gets in a great frame of mind when attending the affair and can actually cause more people to be able to attend if they can afford to do so! Going back to availability, guests can also find accommodation much easier and will have more choice of where to stay with a less busy weekday date.
