Hi. This is my first post here and I am looking for some advised.
My partner and I got engaged in May and are now venue hunting. As I am off to afrika for 2 months soon we need to make a decision. I am worried if I wait till October to sort it venues will be already gone.
We are looking to get married 2021 in spring.
We are funding we wedding by ourself so have a 10k budget....
We found a lovely venue that is 2.5k on a Sunday. Saturday is 4.5k and with that totally out of our budget (not including food or drinks).
My H2B IS now worried that if we do Sunday there won't be a real party vibe and people leave early. My family is flying over from Europe so are many of my friends. He feels though a lot of his workmates and friends won't stay till late if they have to take Monday off. My take is that if people care they will come and as we are only 1 hour away from his place of work people could stay the night and still make it for 9 am work start if they leave in the morning.
What is everyone's experience with Sunday wedding? We are having a live band which is a must for us for the celeidh but obviously want a full dance floor till midnight if possible (that's when thr bar licence ends in the venue but as up to 70 people stay there we are planning on house party after 😂)
Am I worrying about nothing? I don't want to ruin his day by doing a Sunday wedding and he/we is not getting the party he wants but choosing a cheaper Saturday wedding venue would mean a huge compromise on my side as I love this one (and so does he).
I just love this venue so much and the only day we could do a Saturday would be getting a package in a hotel but that would not be as personal as we would like....
It's a struggle.
Any opinions on Sundays or experiences from your weddings would be appreciated. ♥
