6 Reasons why a midweek wedding is best!

With 7 days to choose from, Saturdays are far and away the most popular day to get married – but why is this? We’ve got 6 reasons to book a midweek wedding.

It’s cheaper to book a midweek wedding

Your midweek wedding is always cheaper than a Saturday wedding in terms of venue cost, sometimes by as much as 50%! As a result there’s more funds for those Jimmy Choo heels, extra touches for your big day, or spends towards your honeymoon!

There’s more availability of dates

With 52 weeks in the year, there will only ever be 52 Saturdays. But with a choice of 208 midweek days you’ll never be disappointed when choosing a date! Not to mention a seasonal wedding, the choice of dates increases by 400%! Why not celebrate the date you first met or the date you got engaged?

There’s more choice of suppliers

Some suppliers can only book one wedding a day for example photographers, entertainers or DJ. If you have a favourite and they’re not available, you’re starting with second best on your big day! In order to give yourself more choice, choose a midweek wedding to book the best florist to suit your style, the photographer who you really ‘click’ with or the DJ who’ll keep the dance floor full from start to finish!

Everyone gets a day off work at a midweek wedding

And what a wonderful reason for an extra day out of the office! Not only will some guests choose to make it extra special and take two days off, but some will make it a mini break and take three!

Guests save money at a midweek wedding

Bedrooms are generally much cheaper Sunday to Thursday than they are on a Saturday – whether in a luxury hotel or budget B&B!

Book your dream Honeymoon

A midweek honeymoon means there’s more availability for your romantic break. Plus your holiday budget will get you further (literally) or get you more nights away for your special time alone together!

According to folklore

Marry on a Monday for wealth

Tuesday for health,

Wednesday the best day of all,

Thursday for losses

Friday for crosses

And Saturday no luck at all.”
