Wedding Budget Tip #36:

Consider choosing a day other than Saturday for your wedding!

If you’re looking for a way to cut costs for your wedding, choosing a day other than Saturday can be a great way to slash prices on everything from the venue to catering to the flowers. Saturdays are peak wedding booking days, and while Fridays and Sundays have started to grow in popularity, more often than not you can get a deal just for choosing a different day of the week.

Of course, choosing a mid-week date could make it harder for your guests to attend your wedding, especially if travel is involved. Be considerate of the amount of time your loved ones may need to take off work when choosing a weekday for your wedding. Mid-week dates tend to work out best for destination weddings where the entire guest list is likely traveling anyway.

Because most vendors don’t book as many events mid-week, they may offer special weekday pricing or deals for events booked during the week. If you choose a mid-week wedding date, it can be a great way to save money and have the wedding you’ve been dreaming of for less than if you held it on a Saturday.

If you’re looking for ways to plan a debt-free wedding that won’t sacrifice on style, this is one strategic choice worth making to significantly reduce your expenses.

So tell us: are you considering a mid-week wedding date for your big day?
