Are you and your partner asking the question: to elope on a weekday or a weekend? This guide is here to help give you some clarity! Eloping on a weekday offers advantages for couples seeking an intimate and unique elopement experience. With reduced stress and more privacy, couples can really be present in their elopement day without worrying about being crowded by a million tourists. This choice also opens doors to exclusive vendors, travel opportunities, and an extended celebration. Check out the 5+ reasons you and your partner should elope on a weekday!
Weekday elopements often provide a quieter and more private setting compared to weekends. Popular elopement locations don’t have as many visitors during the week and it’s easier to explore when and where you want. If you want privacy and intimacy for your elopement, a weekday elopement is your best bet!
Elopement and wedding vendors such as photographers, videographers, officiants, and florists tend to have more availability on weekdays since most weddings happen on the weekend. This means you are more likely to work with your favorite vendors for your elopement without worrying about them being booked!
Elopements on weekdays can provide unique opportunities. When visiting locations with less crowds, it opens the doors for experience that might not have been available during busy, peak hours like this couple did when they go to visit the distillery after hours. That awesome brewery you’re stopping at along the way? The head brewer might be able to give you a tour! That fun tapas restaurant you’re going to? You’ll get more personalized and one-on-one service from the waitress! Weekday elopements offer flexibility for fun surprises!
With fewer couples vying for the same dates, you’ll have more flexibility in choosing the exact date and time that suits you best. This can help reduce stress in the planning process and allow you customize your elopement experience. Also, if you’re planning a destination elopement, weekdays can be ideal for travel accommodations. Flight and accommodation prices tend to be lower during the week, making it more affordable and flexible for you.
Weekday elopements often come with less stress and pressure compared to weekend elopements. With a smaller guest list or even just the two of you, there’s less coordination and planning involved, allowing you to focus on the significance of the moment.
When you elope on a weekday, you can potentially extend your celebration into a long weekend or even a week, taking advantage of the time to enjoy a mini-honeymoon without the rush of returning to work immediately after the ceremony. The weekend is now your oyster!
Eloping during the week is perfect for couples seeking more privacy and intimacy for their wedding day! As part of your planning, consider investing in an elopement photographer to plan and capture your weekday elopement. Elopement photographers focus on understanding your elopement vision; finding activities, and adventures that align with your vision; planning and curating a day that’s 100% percent you; and helping figure out the logistics of your elopement! These moments are once in a lifetime, and having a local expert on your side to bring your elopement vision to life is SO worth it. Need help finding the right elopement photographer?
