Deciding on a Day
If you’re not hard set on a particular date, there are some things you may not have considered but that could make choosing when you will get married a little easier. We’ve included tips in the list below.
Run through this list and take notes on which factors are most important to you and your partner so you can find the most optimal date and venue for your big day.
Friday Weddings: Fridays are increasingly becoming a popular day to wed. Premier wedding venues like The Riverhouse at Goodspeed Station or The Society Room of Hartford offer more affordable pricing on Fridays while not compromising on the incredible food and service we are famous for. Not only will you have the opportunity to enjoy cost savings for the day, but you could add more to the festivities by having a catered brunch of BBQ over the following days catered by Riverhouse Catering. As an added bonus, you’ll also have the entire weekend after your wedding celebration to get ready for your honeymoon and leave on Monday morning organized and relaxed.
Saturday Weddings: Historically, Saturday nights have been the time of choice to get married. As the most requested time, it also comes with a higher price tag. If you still want a Saturday wedding you may want to think about one that happens earlier. A Saturday morning is perfect for guests who are not night owls. They will appreciate getting home by 5 PM and you can have your wedding but still have an after-party with those that want to keep the party going later on!
Sunday Weddings: If you do not plan on having your ceremony at a church, then Sundays are also a great day to consider getting married on. Most people are available to attend on this day which can increase your guest count and at both The Riverhouse and Society Room you can choose to have your ceremony right on-site and even choose your timing and schedule for the day’s events.
If you’re ready to start thinking about your wedding venue location and date, consider The Society Room of Hartford and The Riverhouse at Goodspeed Station. Our expert staff can help guide you in the details and creating the memories you always wished for on your big day.
