It’s hard to ignore the numerous benefits of having a mid-week wedding. The Harper Team shine a light on the rewards…
Booking a Mid-Week Wedding
With many couples choosing to stick to tradition and marry on a Saturday, it can be easy to presume that your wedding must also fall on a weekend date. However, if you’d rather avoid the costs that may be associated with a weekend wedding, you may like to consider saying your vows during the week.
At first, you may have a few concerns when it comes to the prospect of a mid-week wedding:
• What if my guests can’t get time off work?
• Will people think we can’t afford a weekend wedding?
• What will my family think?
Wedding planning couples are now discovering the multitude of advantages that a mid-week wedding has to offer. Here are our top 10 reasons why we think you should consider booking a mid-week wedding date…
Cut your Wedding Costs
1: Save Money on your Wedding Venue
The cost of your wedding venue will probably be one of the largest expenses in your wedding budget. However, you will find that hiring a wedding venue on a week day can significantly reduce the cost, in comparison to a Friday or Saturday. Demand is higher at weekends, so wedding venues tend to price those dates at a premium, but if book you wedding on a Thursday, the reality is that you’re still booking the exact same venue, but due to demand, the overall cost may be less expensive. During the Summer months, opting for a weekday date could save you thousands! If you’re keen to book your dream wedding venue but budget won’t allow a weekend date, consider a mid-week wedding!
2: Save Your Wedding Guests Money
Not only can you achieve some significant savings as a couple, but you can also save your guests money by booking a mid-week wedding. Your wedding guests may need to stay in a hotel overnight and room rates even at the most luxury hotels may drop during the week. Getting to your wedding may also be less busy for your guests during the week in terms of traffic, public transportation and flights.
3: Benefit from a More Affordable Honeymoon
Couples dream of an idyllic honeymoon – and a midweek wedding could save you money on this trip too. Weekends tend to be some of the most expensive days of the week to fly, so if you dream of jetting off the morning after your celebrations, a Friday or Saturday wedding may only add to your expenses. Opt for a Monday wedding and your flights on a Tuesday could save you hundreds of pounds.
