I mean...nobody is going to call you out on it if you actually do it, but it still fucks over all of your out of town and/or hard drinking guests.

At least he didn't ask me if a 4* resort in the Bahamas was annoying...

Don't tell Stitches that.

We did our wedding on Sunday of a 3-day weekend so people had Monday off. I wouldn't do it otherwise, unless you're having a dry afternoon reception.

the only thing more offensive to Southern Baptists than booze or drinking would be a Sunday wedding so no, your scenario won't happen.

So the job interview I was supposed to have didn't pan out because the office hired someone else. What pisses me off (in addition to the whole situation) is that I never even had an official contact from the office. My friend who works with the organization and set it up was the one who was coordinating things with me. Oh well.

I've been going to weddings frequently for almost 15 years, and it seems like the crapping on the guests has gotten worse as time has gone on.

Early on, it was all Saturday afternoon weddings in traditional settings, but now it's destination, Sunday, etc. I'm not entirely certain why it's worse, but it has been.

I still assert that the most inconsiderate wedding I've ever attended was in Athens, GA during a home football game.

I hate to break it to you, but this is only marginally better (if at all). Basically, you co-opted everyone's long weekend instead of ensuring a shitty Monday at work.

What's the best day to schedule a wedding?

Asking for a friend.

I got invited to a Friday wedding recently. Sunday is mildly annoying, but Friday is bad for everybody including people in town.

I've mentioned that to a couple of my Athens friends and they're always aghast that anyone could be so cruel.

Well if you don't like this trend of shitting on the guests, you gotta go post on some wedding advice websites, because a bunch of them are saying "nah, Sunday is fine". (Personally I suspect this is because Sunday weddings mean that the wedding industry gets paid twice every weekend instead of once).

Saturday, duh.

The Sunday on a long weekend thing can be funny. Works if you have a lot of young guests (like immediate/close family and then all of your friends, who are all young because you are the first one getting married). Your college friends will be happy to squeeze an extra day of partying into the weekend.

Once people have families and shit, they might want to use that rare 3 day weekend to do something else...

I had a Sunday wedding shog[1].gif


It's actually about 50/50 on weddings I've gone to between Saturday/Sunday. As long as they're earlier in the day, it hasn't been a problem for me. Either end up traveling Friday or Sunday night/Monday morning.

I'm guessing it's because your friends have progressed in their new careers so they have more money and think others have the same desire to spend lavishly on their own weddings (destinations) or that they are now on non-first marriages so the ceremony seems less important to them and they think a Sunday one will be treated as low key. Or, this being the South, the church they want/must be in is booked solid for Saturdays at a stretch the groom bride's mother, totally the bride doesn't want to wait another four months so they go with Sunday.

I just bought the smoker I wanted for about 35% off, no tax and free shipping (with a $5 upgrade to "fast shipping") thanks to Google shopping. Because I'm travelling Paypal wouldn't let me log on so I went with cash on delivery for payment. Which is just...weird. I've never even had the option. Now I wonder if I'm not going to be robbed (or my roommates cause they will be handing them the money. [Actually if it is one of them fuck it, what do I care. {In other words in one post I've gone from confused to scared to indifferent. Thank you for joining me on this roller coaster.}])

My wedding was also in January (MLK weekend), so I don't think people had other serious plans that we ruined. One thing we learned very early in wedding planning is that someone is going to disagree with every decision you make. Either people care enough to come to your wedding or not. It's always going to be inconvenient for some people.

By all accounts, our wedding was a huge hit, at least amongst the people we care about the most.
