To continue our earlier post about the pro’s and con’s of a weekday wedding. This will be the con’s to having a weekday wedding.
- Taking off of Work – Weddings are an expensive for everyone as well as the couple. Wedding guests can spend a good amount to attend the big day. This is taking into account an outfit, accommodation, travel expenses, wedding gift. Some guests will be a little sore over also having to take a day off of work to attend your wedding. If your guests have to travel, then this may become two or more days for them.
- There is Always Traffic – If you live in a city, the mid-week traffic could cause a problem for you and your guests on your wedding day. Imagine how it could be arriving an hour late to your ceremony because your hairstylist or makeup artist got stuck in traffic and was not there when you needed to get ready. These unnecessary stresses could be avoided by having a weekend wedding.
It seems there are more pros than there are cons to having your wedding during the week. The most important thing is to consider is what is most important to you. If you want a big wedding with everyone you know there, a weekend is probably the best for you. Though the cost of this may be an issue if you have a limited budget. You can do many things to help you stick to your budget. One way is to have an event planner to help keep you on track. If you want all the extras, then you could be to save money on the venue by having a weekday wedding. It is your day and you should not have to compromise what you want for what everyone else wants.
