Does Your Wedding Have To Take Place On A Saturday?

People sometimes assume that Saturdays are the “appropriate” day in the week for a wedding, but you can certainly look to other parts of the calendar to find your perfect date. In fact, many couples can discover that a less traditional date can deliver some appealing benefits. Our Texas Hill Country setting can serve as a beautiful spot for your nuptials at any time of the year, and on whatever date makes the most sense for you. If you are looking for a way to stretch your budget, if Saturdays are less convenient for the people in your life, or if you are trying to plan an event with relatively short notice, we can talk to you about finding an ideal date.

Opening Yourself Up To A Non-Traditional Wedding Date

If you are comfortable with a longer engagement period, you can have a relatively easy time securing a coveted date for your celebration. Finding the right wedding vendors can be easier, too, as they are less likely to have other engagements with advance notice. With that said, many couples are not comfortable with a prolonged engagement. If you move away from the idea of a Saturday wedding in the spring or summer months, you can reduce some of the stress that comes with wedding planning.

Benefits To A Non-Traditional Date

Simply put, there is less competition for venues and vendors outside of Saturdays, so arrangements can be easier when you pick a date that falls on a Friday, Sunday, or any other day of the week that suits you. The vendors you work with are more likely to be free, and may even offer some discounts for dates where they tend to have less work. Some couples can also find that their non-Saturday date is actually better for some of their guests. If many of the people you want at your wedding work in industries like service or entertainment, they may have a difficult time freeing themselves to attend your event if it falls on a Saturday.

Things To Remember When You Make Less Conventional Wedding Choices

For some of the more conservative people in your life, any less than traditional wedding choice can feel uncomfortable. If you grow frustrated with push-back from well-meaning people, remember that your wedding is more important to you and your partner than it is to anyone else. That means you have the most investment in its success, but it also means it should be a reflection of what you want! You can politely explain your reasoning for any non-traditional wedding choices, but these decisions do not have to be approved by others.
