Aon a Fri­day or anoth­er week­day is a rather unusu­al choice for mod­ern new­ly­weds. Such a day for cel­e­brat­ing a wed­ding, although it brings some dif­fi­cul­ties, but also has many advan­tages. Chan­fash­ion will tell you why it is worth cel­e­brat­ing aon Fri­day and what orga­ni­za­tion­al points should be tak­en into account so that every­thing goes smooth­ly.


More Options

Most cou­ples choose Sat­ur­day for their­day, so Fri­day is free at manyspe­cial­ists and restau­rants. This is a great oppor­tu­ni­ty to get a wide selec­tion even in the high sea­son, but remem­ber: if a beau­ti­ful date falls on Fri­day (for exam­ple, 07.07 or 08.08), then there will be no less peo­ple who want to cel­e­brate on this day than on the week­end.

Since Fri­day is not such a pop­u­lar day as Sat­ur­day or Sun­day, many spe­cial­ists and restau­rants have free win­dows. It is more prof­itable for them to offer you a dis­count in order to earn at least part of the stan­dard price on Fri­day than to leave the day com­plete­ly free. Feel free to ask about dis­counts or spe­cial con­di­tions for week­days, this will help save the­bud­get.

Possibility to extend the holiday

Just imag­ine: after a tedious cel­e­bra­tion and­prepa­ra­tions, you have two whole legal days ahead. You can use Sat­ur­day and Sun­day to con­tin­ue cel­e­brat­ing in the com­pa­ny of guests in a more relaxed atmos­phere. For exam­ple, book a pri­vate house, go to a coun­try house, or sim­ply move to a pic­nic area. Or you can devote the week­end to each oth­er, soak up the spa or just sleep off 🙂

Friday wedding: disadvantages

If aon week­days had only plus­es, then no one would get mar­ried on week­ends 🙂 Let’s add a fly in the oint­ment to the bar­rel of the advan­tages of a Fri­day wed­ding:

Working day

Sure­ly, most guests have a stan­dard work sched­ule with a five-day sched­ule. And this means that for your wed­ding, they will have to take a day off or at least take time off from work ear­ly. Keep in mind that not all of your guests will be able to attend due to this cir­cum­stance. Below we give a cou­ple of tips on how to smooth out this sit­u­a­tion.

Not all­lo­ca­tions will be avail­able on week­days due to the nature of their work. In addi­tion, if the restau­rant is booked for anoth­eron Sat­ur­day, it may not accept you the day before or it may have a time lim­it — the next cus­tomers need time to install the scenery, so your team will have to speed up the clean­ing.

There may also be prob­lems with extend­ing the work­ing time of spe­cial­ists. If your DJ has his next event sched­uled tomor­row, he may not be able to extend the exten­sion, because then he will not have time to rest before the Sat­ur­day work day.

What should be considered for aon a weekday?

Warn guests in advance

The soon­er you let your guests know about your­date and time, the more chances they have to sort out their issues and sched­ule before they come. If the cre­ation of invi­ta­tion design slows you down, then use the “Save the date” cards: you don’t need to indi­cate addi­tion­al details in them, you can lim­it your­self to the date and write that guests will rec­og­nize all the impor­tant points in the invi­ta­tion, which they will receive after a while.

It is advis­able to focus on the fact that thewill be on Fri­day, and addi­tion­al­ly write this in the invi­ta­tion. Oth­er­wise, guests may inad­ver­tent­ly con­fuse the day or sim­ply not pay atten­tion to the cal­en­dar when respond­ing to the invi­ta­tion, decid­ing that thewill tra­di­tion­al­ly take place on Sat­ur­day.

Move the ceremony to the evening

If some of the guests could not take time off from work and arrive at theno ear­li­er than five in the evening, then you can slight­ly mod­i­fy the tim­ing of the­day for your com­fort.

We pro­pose to swap the feast and cer­e­mo­ny at theon Fri­day. For exam­ple, start the cel­e­bra­tion with a light buf­fet, con­grat­u­la­tions and pho­tos with guests. At this time, the host can begin to get acquaint­ed with the invi­tees and enter­tain them with light, unob­tru­sive con­tests and fun­ny con­ver­sa­tions. Lat­er, a tra­di­tion­al ban­quet will begin, and by the time the hot meal is tak­en out, the delayed guests will begin to arrive. Give the new­com­ers an hour and a half to set­tle in, eat and catch their breath before mov­ing on to a roman­tic evening cer­e­mo­ny in the sun­set light or cozy light bulbs. After the cer­e­mo­ny and igni­tion of the fam­i­ly hearth, you can cut the cake.

So you do not have to great­ly reduce the time of the cel­e­bra­tion and all the guests will be in time for the most impor­tant part — the­cer­e­mo­ny.

Consider logistics

The roads are much more crowd­ed on week­days, espe­cial­ly dur­ing the morn­ing and evening rush hours. This can affect both your trips and­l­o­gis­tics: deliv­ery of flow­ers, decor, cater­ing. If the­is planned out­side the city, then keep in mind that on Fri­day evenings there are huge traf­fic jams in the direc­tion from the city.

To reduce the risk of being late, post­pone the sched­uled deliv­ery times from 10 am to 12 pm and from 2 pm to 5 pm — usu­al­ly the roads are freer dur­ing these inter­vals. When com­pil­ing­tim­ing, take into account the traf­fic sit­u­a­tion and leave time gaps, mak­ing the plan more flex­i­ble: if you do not put all the points right next to each oth­er, then even a sud­den force majeure will be eas­i­er to han­dle.

In addi­tion, we advise you to arrange trans­porta­tion for guests in advance, because taxis are in great demand on Fri­day evenings.

Use Saturday

Since Sat­ur­day is freed up thanks to theon Fri­day, we advise you not to miss the chance and use it to the fullest 🙂 This is a great time for the “sec­ond­day”, because the next day no one needs to rush to work. Arrange a more relaxed cel­e­bra­tion in nature or by the pool, where you will have more time to com­mu­ni­cate with guests, and offi­cial­dom will give way to long-await­ed relax­ation. On Sun­day, you can have a sweet sleep, devote time to each oth­er and even go on a first date in a new sta­tus. Already look­ing for­ward to what it’s like to go on a date with your own hus­band? 🙂


Although we talked about the pos­si­bil­i­ty of get­ting dis­counts from spe­cial­ists and the restau­rant thanks to theon Fri­day, but do not for­get: the­is still aand most of the expens­es will not dis­ap­pear due to a less pop­u­lar day of cel­e­bra­tion. This is espe­cial­ly true for things, not ser­vices. For exam­ple, even with all the desire, the dec­o­ra­tor will not be able to sig­nif­i­cant­ly reduce the price, because the cost of the decor is con­stant.

Remem­ber: Fri­day will help you save a lit­tle, but not orga­nize a lux­u­ri­ous cel­e­bra­tion for a thou­sand dol­lars. There­fore, we advise you not to indulge in thought­less spend­ing, hav­ing received a dis­count from the restau­rant, but still be atten­tive to the cal­cu­la­tion of the bud­get and be smart about spend­ing.
