Congratulations! You’re engaged! What’s next? The normal timeline between engagement and when you walk down the aisle is between 1.5 to 2 years, but it is always a great idea to start your planning early. The first thing you have to do is pick your date! Make sure to be flexible. 

Countless brides have had to reschedule their weddings for 2021 and 2022, so for many venues, Saturday bookings are hard to come by. While for many brides Saturdays are ideal, Thursday, Friday, and Sunday weddings are another spectacular option!

Weekday weddings have tons of benefits. To start, you have the opportunity to save on all of your assets. Saturdays are the most popular days for weddings, which also means they are the most expensive. Chances are that your venue will be more available on these days, and will likely give you a much better deal! 

This goes for vendors as well. Because of all the rescheduled weddings, vendors could be booked out on Saturdays for the next year. They are much more likely to have availability on a Thursday, Friday or Sunday, and might even give you a great deal.
