Pricing Can Be Cheaper
When having a morning/early afternoon wedding, the pricing of the venue can change. SInce you are only occupying the space in the morning and early afternoon, the venue still has a chance to rent the evening for another wedding. This goes for vendors as well. If vendors are able to have their evenings free, they may be able to double book that day, giving them more money in their pockets than if they were only having ONE evening event. This way they may give you a deal since your event will be done before the evening weddings start. Also, if you’re doing an open bar, many people don’t drink heavily in the morning or early afternoon like they would do at an evening wedding, thereby, saving you more money right there at the bar!
You Have The Whole Evening To Relax
The great benefit of being able to have your whole wedding over by the early afternoon is that you have the whole rest of the evening to do whatever you want! You can either take the evening and go off and relax with your significant other, close friends, or family. Or, if you don’t want the night to end, take it out to your favorite town night spot with your friends. It’s a wonderful way to celebrate your marriage with friends and family at your favorite local spots.
Change In The Normal Routine
Everyone jokes that the ‘wedding season is here.’ With that in mind, guests get in the routine of, “ Oh, we have a wedding this weekend, so the night is out of the question to do anything!” But, by planning your wedding to not be like everyone else’s, i.e. scheduled on a weekend evening, you are giving your guests something to look forward to AND a free evening! Most couples don’t do morning or early afternoon weddings; therefore, guests will be excited and intrigued to see how your wedding works and possibly thankful that they celebrate with you and also have their evenings to do what they want .
