    Default Thursday wedding thoughts?

    so I am planning our wedding to be on our anniversary, which falls on a Thursday. As a guest how would you feel going to a mid week wedding? im just feeling reluctant holding it on a thu even though it would not fuss me as a guest, so honest opinions please..

    Its your day, no-one else's. If you give them plenty of notice I'm sure people would make a long weekend out of it. If they have a sook, bugger them!

    I'd be prepared for people to say they can't come unless they are close friends and family. So I guess it depends on who you want there. I'd go if it were close family but it would mean taking the day off work and forfeiting a days pay. I also probably wouldn't drink or stay out late after because of work the next day. So once again if you're after a massive party atmosphere then a Thursday night doesn't really make sense. Or I'm showing my age. Intimate gathering during the day for a casual wedding would be fine.

    Even with plenty of notice some guest will be put out by a Thursday wedding taking the day off and also having a late night with work again the next day. As long as you understand some people might not come then you should be fine! At the end of the day it's your wedding and you can do what you want

    You're never going to be able to please everyone.

    For a good friend that gave me plenty of notice I would organise to have two days leave and go to your wedding. But we are planning on going overseas for a friends wedding so one on a Thursday wouldn't worry me.
    But as with most weddings people will complain about something

    I also think it depends on what you're looking for - it you're looking for a big party of a wedding, then unfortunately quite a few people might not be able to come. If that doesn't matter to you particularly, just go for it.

    In all honesty, you will never please all the guests. I've so far seen guests put out because:

    Someone's wedding was on a Sunday
    Someone's wedding was on the Easter long weekend and they might have wanted to go away
    Our wedding was too close to Christmas
    Our wedding was in the city and they had to drive there. And there wasn't enough parking
    Our wedding was when some of DH's work mates were away at work
    People's weddings have a gap between the ceremony and reception (and apparently people are just not equipped to be able to amuse themselves for a few hours )
    Someone's wedding was overseas and they couldn't make it
    Someone's wedding was on their Birthday (I'm not even kidding, they got upset because "what if I wanted to have a Birthday party")

    And plenty more! So, if the date is special to you, have it on that day. As long as your close family and friends are able to make it - the ones who are most important to you, that's all you need. And, if you're trying to save money, having it on a Thursday will be a big help.

    A Thursday wedding wouldn't bother me in the slightest. I hope you have an awesome day OP

    I got married on a Thursday. Everyone that we wanted there was able to come. We gave plenty of notice. And it was during school holidays so our teacher friends and family (we have quite a few) were able to make it too.
