Why are Friday weddings
BECOMING SO POPULAR?

THE SAVINGS

Let's face it, wedding planning is expensive. Friday venue rentals can save you thousands of dollars over Saturday rentals. Choosing to plan your event on a Friday can potentially open up the opportunity to stay within your budget at a luxury event space that may be out of your budget on a Saturday. In addition to venue savings, most vendors also provide discounted rates for Friday weddings.

AVAILABILITY

Saturdays often book more than a year in advance in the most popular wedding months; this can make it hard to find your dream venue with availability in the month you'd like to exchange your vows. Venues are often available on Fridays at shorter notice that Saturdays are - that's great news for those of us who tend to procrastinate! Other vendors such as amazing photographers also book Saturdays far in advance, their availability on  Friday is more likely than on Saturdays.

GUEST CONVENIENCE

Friday weddings give out-of-town guests an excuse for a  getaway weekend. Guests return home feeling like they’ve had a mini vacation that included celebrating your union, catching up with old friends & family, as well as exploring what the city has to offer. Friday weddings give in-town guests more flexibility to spend time with other wedding guests, outside of the wedding, or leaves the rest of their weekend free.

YOU & YOUR SOON-TO-BE SPOUSE

Friday weddings leave Saturday free for you and your spouse! There’s so much more to do in the Crossroads & more memories to create! It also gives you more stress-free time to spend with your out-of-town guests after your big day has passed.
