A Special (Week) Day
What is the best day of the week to get married? – here’s our list from worst to best. The top pick may surprise you.
Not a great day for guests who work, and it’s a school night. You’re also unlikely to save extra money on this day compared to say a Wednesday or Thursday. Has to be a last resort unless there’s a special reason to do with the date itself.
Has all the problems of a Tuesday, except if it’s on a public holiday. That said, public holidays are a bit of a double-edged sword as guests are often not so keen to give up their long weekend.
It has the problems of Monday and Tuesday, but somehow being closer to the weekend makes up for it. It’s also a favourite day for venue discounts and specials, including at Tui Hills.
Oh so close to the weekend that many guests will be happy to take off one extra day and give themselves a four-day weekend. Plus it’s payday, or the day after payday, which somehow puts people in a more festive mood. You’re also likely to get a good discount, although not as big as for Wednesday.
Although it’s a workday on Monday, Sunday is becoming increasingly popular as it allows Saturday as a travel and preparation day. It’s a particularly good option on a long weekend, provided your guests aren’t going away on holiday.
It’s party time, with Saturday to sleep in. Traditionally the second most popular wedding day, with no sign of that changing. It also tends to weed out obligation guests who might not want to give up a day’s pay to attend the wedding of a distant relative, if that’s an advantage to you.
