I spent Valentine's Day at a wedding. While I think V-day weddings are cheesy and totally over the top, that isn't what bugged me about this particular wedding. It's that it was on a Sunday. Considering I had to drive three hours to attend this wedding, the fact that the wedding was on a Sunday was a little inconvenient.
An early evening wedding on a Sunday. To me it just isn't polite to your guests. I know your wedding day is supposed to be all about you and your commitment to your groom and all, but sometimes you have to take into consideration the fact that some people might have to travel for your wedding. (And before you say I didn't have to go to the wedding, I kind of did. It was family.)
Now, I know certain cultures have traditions, that you have to get married on certain days. I get that. But if you don't, then to me, Friday or Saturday is a good day to have a wedding. Preferably Saturday. It's just easier on guests and possible wedding party members that will need to travel, especially when you are letting your guest know only three weeks in advance. (Another issue I had with this wedding, but I'll only tackle one thing at a time.) Plus every wedding I've ever been to has been on a Saturday, because it's just easier on everyone involved.
So what do you think? Is it inconsiderate to have a wedding (that doesn't have to adhere to cultural traditions) on any day other than a Friday or Saturday?
