You may have your heart set on getting married on a weekend, however there are many advantages to choosing to marry on a weekday, including budget, availability, and the ability to host a more intimate affair. Let’s dive into 5 reasons to have a weekday wedding.
Holding your nuptials on a weekday means that your overall wedding budget can be significantly smaller. The demand for weekend weddings drives the prices up so selecting a weekday wedding day that is less in demand often results in a more budget-friendly price point. Many vendors offer discounts and incentives to save money for booking during the week. For example here at Koury Farms, our weekday packages are considerably less than weekends. See more details here.
Maybe you have your eye on a dream venue that you can envision yourself marrying at but it is booked out for the next couple of years. Even the most popular venues may have weekday availability, and during peak wedding season, so you wouldn’t even have to sacrifice the time of year you prefer to marry!

With more availability opening up during the week, if you are in a time crunch to tie the knot then opting for a weekday wedding is the perfect scenario for a short engagement.
Many other wedding vendors such as photographers, caterers, wedding planners etc will be booked up at the weekends so a weekday wedding opens up more opportunities to research and find the perfect vendor that is available for your wedding.
If you are looking for a small, intimate wedding a weekday wedding could be perfect.
It is likely that fewer people would be able to commit to a wedding during the week, which enables you to cut down numbers easier. This way only the people closest to you, and who you truly care about will be with you to celebrate your big day, making it more special and intimate.
