Save a Ton by Having Your Wedding on a Thursday

Posted: 23 Sep 2016 02:05 AM PDT

Here's an interesting follow up to my recent post on how expensive weddings can be

Money magazine has a piece on how some couples are saving a ton by having their weddings on Thursdays

Yep, going off of prime time is always a saver no matter what you do and it's no different with weddings.

Most people don't want to get married on Thursday, right? Of course not! This means Thursdays are bargain-days!!!

From the article:

Joe, a dentist outside the New York City area, said the couple saved at least 20% on photography and around 40% on flowers just by changing their wedding date.

"We had a lot more purchasing power," he said. "Everyone would come down [in price] when they heard the word Thursday."

Booking a venue for a Thursday is 17% cheaper on average than hosting a Saturday night affair, according to Tina Hoang-To, CEO and co-founder of Wedding Spot, a wedding venue marketplace.

Many wedding professionals are more likely to negotiate their rates because there is less competition for their services [on Thursdays].

For instance, catering and reception venue Anthony's Pier 9 in New York, where the Brownes got married, reduces its minimum head count and price per head by $20 for non-weekend weddings.

A few other thoughts:

  • They said that some people couldn't attend because it was not on a weekend, so this could be a game-changer if it's a person important to the wedding (like a close relative).
  • They noted that many people had to leave early because they had to work the next day. Not that bad IMO.
  • Because you book on a Thursday, you also don't have to book a year out as Thursdays aren't that popular...yet.
  • I liked the suggestion that a Thursday wedding also allows couples to take a long weekend if they are skipping the honeymoon (or postponing it) or will vacation close to home.

Overall, this sounds like a GREAT idea to save a bundle. Then again, I'm a guy so I could get married in a Taco Bell at breakfast.

What do the rest of you think? Worth the savings or not?
