Weekday weddings have become an industry trend thanks to their substantial savings over weekend weddings; but did you know according to Victorian superstition marriages should only take place during the week? Although Saturday is now the most popular day for weddings, it was considered unlucky in the past. Fridays were also considered unlucky, particularly Friday the 13th.
Popular venues may be booked 1 – 3 years in advance on weekends and the prices are higher. As well weekend weddings need to be planned to avoid:
- Major Civic holidays
- Graduation weekends
- The weekend before tax day
Did you know that Tuesdays are lucky days for marriages? In the Torah, Genesis, Chapter 1, it is written “it is good” twice on the third day of creation and many consider this a great omen for marriage.
5 Great Reasons to Plan a Weekday Wedding:
- Substantial savings
- Greater choice of venues
- Greater availability of vendors
- Ideal for intimate, low key weddings
- An easy way to control the guest list
