Wednesday the best day of all,

Friday for losses,
and Saturday for no luck at all.” – Folk Rhyme
Why Wedding Wednesday is the Best Day of All for Marriage
Wedding Wednesdays are the Best for Saving
From the wedding venue to vendors, Wednesdays are the best day to find savings. Even though Wednesday weddings have increased in popularity, they are nowhere near as common as having a weekend wedding.
Most people plan to have a weekend wedding because that is when a majority of their guests are off from work. Wedding venues and vendors both offer great discounts during the week.
Wedding Vendors Love Working on Wednesdays
Vendors are so busy working on the weekends, that other days like Mondays and Fridays make it even more difficult for them. Many wedding vendors refer to Mondays as the “wedding hangover.” The term was coined not from drinking, but from working so hard from the weekend; thus, needing a day to recover. Wednesdays are a great day to break up the week for vendors, and their overall preferred weekday to work.
Wednesdays are the Easiest Day for Guests to Attend During the Week
A majority of your wedding guests probably work during the week. However, Wednesdays tend to be the easiest day to request off. Not only that, your guests will also enjoy a wedding Wednesday to break up work week.
We should mention that not all of your guests will be able to attend on a Wednesday. If they are traveling far, they will have to take off more than one day of work. Keep this in mind if you are inviting several guests from out of state. However, if taking a few days off of work is not a problem, mid-week travel is the most cost effective way for even your guests to attend.
