Are you having or considering making yours a weekday wedding? For as long as I can remember Saturday weddings have been most popular but the last couple of years we have seen a huge rise in It’s Bliss Brides opting for a weekday wedding.
Maybe the trend has been fuelled by venues offering ‘cheaper’ mid week deals – indeed when our daughter got married last year we managed a whopping 50% off the wedding package for a Thursday wedding so it well worth considering !
Some brides worry that guests may not be able to make it midweek, but it’s worth remembering that not everyone gets Saturdays off or even Sundays now so many guests would need to take holidays anyway and as it’s now the trend to send ‘save the date’ cards as soon as you have the guest list maybe even 12 months in advance you are giving people plenty of time to book the time off work whatever day it is.
In fact traditionally Saturdays were considered unlucky! Fridays were also considered unlucky particularly Friday the 13th. The famous old rhyme suggests a Wednesday lol x
Monday for wealth
Tuesday for health
Wednesday the best day of all
Thursday for losses
Friday for crosses
Saturday for no luck at all
