We have seen a venue we love but we are limited on dates as we are still at University. It has availability on Sunday 30th of June (we ideally wanted a Saturday) but it would mean waiting until the following year! Do you think if we went with a Sunday the guests would still stay to party late and book Monday off work? Major dilemas!

  • Having booked a Sunday wedding I know just how you feel - it's a worry that people might want to leave early. But having done it myself, I've discovered the following: a.) Only a handful of people will leave early - some for health reasons who would have left early anyway. b.) The ones who really matter will stay until the end - a wedding really does help you find out who your friends are. If your friends really love you they won't resent ONE day off of work out of their whole lives - especially if they're given months of notice - so do things your way and no matter which day you get married, those who are worth it will turn up and stay the distance regardless. Good luck! x

  • Honestly, probably not. Most people won't book Monday off work. If you want people to stay late and party and that is important to you, then you should have a Saturday or even Friday wedding. If you have the actual wedding on Friday people will have to take the day off and can still stay late. It depends how badly you want this venue, is it worth waiting a whole extra year for?

  • We recently photographed a wedding on a Monday, it was the full works, about 100 guests, church ceremony followed by reception with a live band. We had to keep reminding ourselves it was a Monday and not a Saturday and I don't think it made any difference to the guests or the atmosphere. The drinks were flowing and the dance floor was packed when we left at about 10pm!

  • Thank you! We've booked anyway and gone ahead! Sounds like most people will be staying and booking the Monday off work!
