Thanks ladies... I feel so much better about it. I got some grief from one of the people I would be inviting...kind of like in a round about way. She emails me and says, "Wow a FRIDAY wedding?" like its a bad thing. So I email her back and say "yes, it works better for us" and she write me back saying "yeah its cheaper, but we had to think about the people who had to TRAVEL when we picked our date." First of all... I dont particularly want these people at my wedding, but its my fiances family, and I have to invite them. And Second of all, its not MY fault they moved two hours away! So, I should change my entire wedding for two people who might not even come in the first place? I dont think so!!! Thats why I asked if its weird to have Friday, because she really seemed to have a problem with it! WHATEVER!!!

JEN, You are getting soooo close! Im so excited for you!

Oh Please...this wedding is about you!!! You are going to have this date follow you for the rest of your life!!!! My wedding is on a friday. Besides the fact that it's CHEAPER to do things on a friday, but it's the date WE wanted. Our anniversary now is Oct.23, we thought a thursday wouldn't be right, and everyone told us that another year is ridiculous to wait, so... FRIDAY Oct. 24th it is! =D

I got grief from my boss, but he'll get over it. Don't worry about people... if they really want to be there... they will be there!!!! Trust me!!!! =D

By the way... CONGRATS!!!!!! =D Oh and our wedding starts @ 4:30pm ends @ 10pm, and we'll have a after party, too. =D

::BIG HUGS::



XOXO,

Jen

That depends on what kind of timeline you want to have. I'm having a 4:30 ceremony, cocktail hour and photos from 5 to 6, receiving line till 6:30, and sitting down for dinner then. This will mean dinner until 8 and speeches until 8:15 or 8:30. Then 8:30 until 1 will be for dancing and cake.

But, if you don't want to have a ceremony until 6, this can work too. If you still have an hour for photos but skip the receiving line (and visit each table during dinner) then you can be sitting down for dinner at 7:30, which will still leave lots of time for dancing.

Got married May 30th, 2009!

Tina,

Congrats on setting your date!!! Your venue is absolutely beautiful. A Friday evening wedding is perfectly acceptable. If some people have a gripe with it they don't have to come :( I'm sure you won't hear too many complaints!!

CONGRATS! And what a beautiful venue! It will be a gorgeous wedding, I'm sure.

If people complain about it being a Friday, then they're really missing the point of the wedding. This is *your* day and you should be able to have it any day of the week that you want. But I know Friday weddings are becoming more common, so maybe you won't hear a lot of complaints. Do you know what time you're having the ceremony? One thing I could suggest, if you haven't, is making it later in the day so that people *don't* have to take a full day off work.

Then again, some people may be thankful for the excuse to make it a long weekend!

Got married May 30th, 2009!

What a gorgeous venue! Congratulations!!!

The Friday issue is tricky - there probably will be people who will gripe, but hopefully they'll do it in the background. In my opinion, if somebody can't enjoy the expensive dinner and party that you're inviting them to because it's on a Friday, well... too bad! If anybody gives you a hard time tell them you'd be more than happy to re-assign their seat to someone else who had to be left off the guest list :)

Hey Girls, just wanted to share the exciting news!!! WE FINALLY SET THE DATE!!! We are getting married on November 6, 2009. Im so happy that its finally REAL. This is the place that we are getting married at.

I just have a quick question.... does anyone find it strange to have a Friday wedding? Does it seem selfish to think that people are going to take a half a day at work, or even take the day off? It was definitely cheaper this way, but I get the feeling people are going to be like "FRIDAY?!?!" What do you all think???

Anyway, Im really excited!!!
