Sunday wedding?

Hey all. I am getting married next year :D and we are planning on having the wedding on a Sunday. My fiance's family finds this very weird. We have a good reason to have it on a Sunday - it will be our 10 year anniversary! We are high school sweethearts and really want to keep our "date" since it means a lot to the both of us. We only have a couple of people coming out of town and they don't seem to care one way or another.

Out of curiosity - have you been to a Sunday wedding, if so did anyone seem to mind?

(Just as a note: We are not changing the date, after all it is OUR wedding. Just wanted to throw the question out there!)

I have been to Sunday weddings. I don't see any issues with it. I have also been to weddings on weekdays. A wedding is for the couple. They can invite others to join them on this wonderful occasion but it is not for them.

I am sure sometime in the course of planning the wedding you will have a "bridezilla" moment. Don't let this issue be the cause of one.

I've never been to a Sunday wedding, but I think most people would think a Sunday wedding would be fine, as long as it's not during typical church service hours.

I've been to two Sunday weddings, and they were no issue at all. If other people don't like it, it's their problem and not yours. Congrats!

I got married on a Sunday. The only one who cared about the Sunday part was my very religious mother. Her primary concern was that I wasn't married in a church, the ceremony wasn't conducted by a minister, and God wasn't mentioned.

Thanks all for the reassurance! The people complaining aren't even religious. They just want to party into the wee hours of the night. They can do that on their own time! :uhoh3:

Ah, some people just like to hear them complain. You know the saying: In one ear, and out the other.

Jewish people usually marry on Sunday. Not a thing wrong with it. People marry on Christmas, New Year's Night or Day, 4th of July, and so on. What is the freakin' big deal? Good luck and best wishes and enjoy your day/life/in-laws.

Two of our daughters were married on Sunday.

With our oldest daughter, it helped us secure the venue that we wanted at a much better price. This was not only because Sunday was a "less desirable" day, but because the Friday and Saturday bookings for this particular place required a ridiculous minimum amount to be spent on alcohol and our future son-in-law came from a non-drinking family. Some branches of our family tree can hoist a glass or ten, but we don't drink a lot, so we would have ended up paying most of the minimum charge for nothing. The Sunday date worked out very well.

Our second oldest was marrying for a second time. (She eloped the first time with someone we really didn't think was right for her, but that's another story.) It was a second marriage for her fiance as well. Their church was really important to them and had a lovely cafe that served coffee, snacks, and light meals after services. (Because of the coffee, it was called Higher Grounds :).) We had the wedding at two o'clock and the reception afterward in the decorated cafe where some of the church ladies had set up a lovely buffet line. This also was a beautiful day.

Both daughters are still married and going strong. The second oldest and her husband just celebrated their 8th anniversary this month.

Do what will take care of you. Anyone who wants to give you a hard time is free not to attend. The folks who love you will understand and rally 'round you. :up:
