The Benefits of a Friday Wedding
Getting Married on a Weekday

As a photographer, I LOVE a Friday wedding! It allows me to work on the same schedule as my husband’s job which is always a bonus! Especially when the majority of my wedding calendar falls over the weekends. A Friday event is always welcome! But what if you’re a bride overwhelmed by the process of securing a date and a location – is a Friday wedding worth pursuing?

Here are some of the benefits of celebrating your nuptials before the weekend hits…

  1. Your dream venue might have a lower food and beverage minimum or rental fee on a Friday
  2. The guests who attend are really invested in being there for the two of you.
  3. If you’re traveling to a destination, guests will have more days to spend enjoying the location
  4. You’ll have a wider selection of vendors to choose from since they’re less likely to be booked
  5. Finally, you’ll have an extra day to honeymoon during the following week off of work – everybody wins!

I’m back in New York this morning and off to photograph Laura and Andrew’s Friday wedding today! Can’t wait to celebrate together!
