Why Fridays Are a Better Day than Ever for Weddings in Connecticut


Planning a wedding can be tough. In addition to finding the right venue, there’s also the decision of when to hold the wedding. This involves picking not only a date, but a day of the week.

Traditionally, weddings are most often held on Saturdays or Sundays to avoid conflicts with work and other obligations. But more and more couples across Connecticut and the rest of the country are opting for Friday evening weddings—and it makes perfect sense why.

The Benefits of Friday Weddings

There are lots of reasons to choose a Friday evening for your wedding. Here are some of the most common.

Fridays are Easier to Book

Given the popularity of Saturdays and Sundays, these days can often book months or even years in advance. Depending on the venue, opting for a Friday wedding may open up weekend availability within your preferred timeframe.

Fridays Can Be More Affordable

Being less in-demand also makes Friday more affordable in many cases. Caterers, photographers, florists, and other wedding services often charge less on Fridays than Saturdays or Sundays.

Friday Night Sets a Festive Tone

According to experts cited in a recent piece in the New York Times, Friday weddings can benefit from the association most people have between Friday nights and parties.

Not to mention—with the whole weekend ahead of the reception, Friday weddings offer guests the chance to have fun without eating into too much personal time.
