Hi there! Welcome to the Ma Maison blog. Stay a while and say hello!

Friday is the New Saturday


It is no secret that Saturdays have become the most popular day to have a wedding, but have you ever considered a Friday wedding? Contrary to what many think, Fridays have become the new Saturdays for weddings. Here are a few reasons why.

  • For a bride on a tight budget, a Friday wedding may help to cut down on cost. Many rentals will be less expensive, making the wedding more budget friendly. Depending on which vendors you choose for your catering, photography, hair and makeup, etc. their prices could also be lower as they have the option to work on another wedding the next day.


  • The question of who will be able to make a Friday wedding often worries the bride but those who are most important to the couple will be sure to make it rain or shine, work or no work. If you still feel uneasy, check with the guests whom you could not picture not being present at your wedding. See what the consensus is. If you feel happy with that list, go ahead and book that Friday wedding!


  • Another benefit to a Friday wedding is turning the entire weekend into a marriage celebration. Choosing a Friday wedding will allow you time to plan fun activities for family and friends the following day. A full day of entertainment might include hiking with the family to the Hamilton Pool and taking a dip in the historic swimming hole. After a refreshing swim, the day of adventure can be followed by a boat bat watching tour. Driving underneath the Anne W. Richards Congress Avenue Bridge, spectators will be able to view the largest urban bat colony take flight for the night.  Wrapping up the weekend of festivities, the newly married couple might brunch on Sunday with their loved ones as a celebratory send-off.
