We’ve seen plenty of weddings over the years, and we know a growing trend when we see one…
Wedding trends come and go. You only have to look at an older relative’s wedding album to see those howlers that haven’t stood the test of time. Powder blue tuxedos anyone? However, some trends seem destined to grow and grow. There’s one in particular I’ve seen blossom in recent years, and don’t worry it isn’t to do with fashion.
I’m talking about the mid-week wedding.
With more and more people opting to go mid-week, it looks like it’s here to stay. And when you look at the advantages a mid-week nuptial can offer you, it’s not hard to see why.
A more relaxed affair
We live in the age of rushing around. Our hectic lives put demands on our time and energy. So when it comes to the biggest day of your life, it’s as good a time as any to make the world work around you for once. And at Bruisyard, our mid-week weddings take place over multiple days, meaning you’ve got three whole days to prepare, perform and pamper yourself. Meanwhile, wedding complete, you’ve still got your first weekend as a married couple to look forward to.
More holiday than wedding
Want the biggest day of your life to be a break from the normal churn of life? You’re not alone. More and more people are saying ‘I do’ on a weekday, and that will only increase as the trend grows. A mid-week wedding is the perfect excuse to break the cycle of weeks and weekends, take some time out, and turn your wedding into a holiday. It’s a treat for your guests, and a fun challenge: Can you turn a Thursday evening into one of the greatest parties you’ve ever had?
On trend with the modern world
With remote working, flexible contracts and a shift away from the regular ‘9-5’ working culture we’ve always known, getting married on a weekday is the perfect option for those who don’t necessarily fit into those traditional patters of work.
A chance to dodge the crowds (and costs)
Spring and Summer are the busiest seasons for weddings. Couples are always clamouring for the prime weekend spaces at the best venues in the area. Which is where your weekday wedding really comes into its own. For one, you’ve got a better chance of finding space in your dream venue, and for another, those venues are probably more likely to offer a better deal if you’re up tying the knot mid-week. Your budget is going to stretch a lot further, and you’re going to find service providers are a lot more amenable, because weekdays are still relatively quiet for them.
