Typically, people get married on a Saturday. It seems this is an age-old tradition, maybe as old as time. Why? Most people have Saturday off from work. People can travel on Friday, attend a Saturday wedding, and relax on Sunday. With a destination wedding, every day is Saturday!!! Can you get married any other day? Short answer is YES! Here are some benefits of marrying on a day of the week other than Saturday.
Availability: Brides request Saturday 9x out of 10. Therefore, any other day will have more availability as those Saturday’s typically book first.
Cost: Many times, it is less expensive to marry outside of the “Saturday” slot. Resorts can offer incentives to book more weddings through the week.
Crowds: Destination weddings are normally public events, especially if held on the beach. To avoid larger beach crowds, plan your wedding through the week, say on a Tuesday.
Attention to Detail: Attention to detail is left to the resort wedding teams. Teams can have multiple weddings a day, especially on Saturdays. The likelihood of having multiple weddings throughout the week is far less. Therefore, the team’s attention to detail for your big day goes up!
