While Saturday evenings are the most popular time to hold a wedding reception. There are no rules saying that you can’t host one earlier in the day. Saturday daytime weddings are becoming more and more popular. If you choose to host a daytime wedding, not only can you start the celebration earlier, you have the potential to save a good amount of money doing so. Here are some thoughts we have when you are considering a daytime wedding! 


The biggest difference in having a daytime wedding is obviously the timing of the event. Typically, it can take a full day to get ready for an evening wedding, but with a morning wedding ceremony, you will have an early start. You want to give yourself at least two hours for your hair and makeup, keep in mind,this time does not include your bridesmaids getting ready. When it comes to the formality of the celebration, you can make it as formal or informal as you’d like. The groom can wear a nice navy or grey suit, and as for the bride, you can wear a   beautiful A-line silhouette which would be perfect for the daytime event.
Once the wedding reception is over, there are no rules that say you must continue to entertain your guests. However, as a nice gesture you can inform your guests of local activities, restaurants and bars that they will can enjoy on their own. 
As for the newlyweds, the sky’s the limit!  Set up a spa treatment at a local hotel, take a nap in your honeymoon suite. Then go out for a delicious dinner with your new spouse!
