According to last week’s Cougar Town “mid-week weddings are a little white trashy”. I was totally offended by this and immediately texted Derek to get his thoughts. He loves my panic stricken wedding texts let me tell ya. Then I googled it and surprisingly found that a lot of people agree. Especially this blog post.. The overall post made me feel like complete garbage for planning a Wednesday wedding, but the comments lifted my spirits a little bit, they were still very back and forth on the subject.
Frist of all..
- By 11-11-11 every Saturday was booked at every [afordable] venue until July of 2013 [apparently SA is a popular place]
- My church and reception cost the same regardless of the day of the week, so I’m not doing it to save money
- 95% of our guests will be traveling in from out of town [half of which are out of state] and airfare and hotels are less expensive during the week
- We’re getting married on the last triple date of our lifetime!
I’m already worried that no one is going to come to our wedding because it falls in the middle of the week and is so close to Christmas, so after reading that post I was feeling pretty horrible. I mean if you feel swindled as a guest, imagine what our poor wedding party is having to deal with. Bachelor/Bachelorette weekends, rehearsal dinners, the actual wedding, all of which fall during the week. I guess I just want to let everyone that’s involved in our big day know that we are forever grateful that you are taking time out of your busy and hectic lives to be a part of something so special to us. And please know that we would do the same for you.
