Planning a Monday Wedding Day

A wedding day traditionally falls on a weekend for reasons that could have everything to do with schedules and planning to just the comfort of tradition. Imagining a Monday wedding day might seem a little strange, but not only is it a growing trend, there are significant reasons why you should consider having your wedding day on a Monday.

Go for a Monday

If you recently rescheduled your wedding day, you might find yourself in a scramble for available dates. That Saturday evening affair could suddenly be displaced, which adds to the stress and anxiety of planning. What are professional planners recommending? Go for a Monday wedding day. Not only is it a solution to a possible shortage of dates, but there are advantages to planning a wedding on Monday.

Advantages to Having a Monday Wedding Day

There are many advantages to choosing a Monday wedding day. Rates at wedding venues can be significantly cheaper on a Monday. Some vendors have special weekday rates that can offer additional savings. While there seems to be a shift in the trend for weekday weddings, there is still more flexibility with a Monday wedding. When couples are faced with circumstances that require them to postpone their wedding day and reschedule, a Monday can be a saving grace for couples that are committed to finding another date within the same year. Sometimes this means a couple can have their wedding sooner. Wedding venues will likely have more flexibility, and vendors will likely be available to cover the event.

The Weekend Before the Wedding Day

Having a Monday wedding gives you an entire weekend before your wedding day to welcome out of town guests, pack for the honeymoon, and hold the rehearsal dinner. Host a special gathering for out of town guests the weekend before the big day. Having the weekend before the wedding for events and planning, rather than holding the wedding on the weekend, can put you ahead of the curve when preparing for your wedding day.
