Ever since you were little, you may have been dreaming about your perfect Saturday night wedding. Although a Saturday is more traditional and has its own benefits, Blackstone Caterers shares with us today why a Friday and Sunday wedding can be just as good as any old Saturday!

1 – As newlyweds, you can have more time with family and friends on Saturday, if getting married on Friday. Or spend the day before stress free while out-of-towners either travel on Saturday or spend the entire day with you the day before your wedding, if getting married on Sunday.

2 – A lot of Saturdays are already taken by the time you begin looking for a specific date, even a whole year ahead. Choosing a Friday or Sunday gives you flexibility with your date, along with snagging a date even sooner to marry your loved one!

3 – If choosing a Friday night wedding, your guests have time to recuperate for two days after the wedding before returning home or to work. If choosing a Sunday night wedding, guests can take their time with traveling for the wedding and possibly have a day off on Monday for a “vacation”.

4 – Couples can save a lot of money, especially on their venue rental. Vendors can have some discounted rates for a Friday or Sunday wedding, so it can save you money to either keep for a rainy day or put more towards “extras” on your wedding day you’ve always wanted!

Happy Wedding Planning!
