Weddings outside of the weekend — let’s start with the downsides

Among them is certainly the reduced comfort for guests due to the need to take days off and rearrange the work week and school, if you’re talking about parents. Weddings during the week also involve further and longer travel — even if it’s a cross-country trip, it can still be time-consuming and problematic.

Receptions were held on pre-arranged prices and hardly anyone expected discounts. Especially since the restrictions on the number of guests already represented a “savings” for the couples themselves — we say this in a sarcastic tone, of course.
