Why settle for just a wedding day, when you could have a wedding weekend?

Here are a few reasons why a Friday or Sunday wedding might be the perfect fit for you!

“What date are you interested in?” is one of the first questions you will be asked are when searching for a wedding venue.

Traditionally, most couples immediately think of a Saturday. However, you may be missing out on some amazing benefits to considering other weekend days. Here are a few reasons why a Friday or Sunday might be the perfect fit for you!

More time to celebrate!
Picture this: Friday night Mexican themed salsa dancing reception to welcome all your guests, poolside drinks and libations with a rehearsal dinner on Saturday, followed by the moment everyone has been waiting for, the grand finale of the wedding day! For years to come, your guests will talk about that amazing weekend they had celebrating your wedding. With a Saturday wedding, typically guests arrive late Friday night and leave first thing Sunday morning leaving little time aside from a quick farewell hug in the lobby after a busy wedding night. A Friday or Sunday wedding allows you to have a memorable wedding weekend celebration and guests leave feeling as if they had a full beachside vacation.

Plentiful Date Options
With most couples searching for Saturday dates only, you have a much larger opening for the wedding time that you were looking for. If you are set on a summer wedding, a Friday or Sunday date will allow you to pay a lower premium (splurge on that twelve piece band or videographer you really wanted) and have the dream wedding you always wanted without compromising on the time of year.

Destination Location
If you are getting married in San Diego and have out of town guests (East Coast visitors especially or young families) a Friday or Sunday is an amazing way to have everyone smiling all weekend long. With Del Mar’s beautiful weather, gorgeous beaches and delicious food scene, you want to have time to spend with your guests enjoying everything a Southern California Wedding has to offer. From a spa day with your bridesmaids, rehearsal dinners at a nearby trendy brewery, to a beachside BBQ on Saturday, having time to truly immerse yourself in this West Coast paradise is a must. Choosing a Friday or Sunday is a perfect way to create a weekend full of memories that will last a lifetime.
