Way To Save: The Mid-Week Wedding

These challenging economic times have created a novel wedding trend: The mid-week wedding! While Wednesday-night knot-tying is never going to replace Saturday evening extravaganzas, we’re hearing about wedding couples that opt to celebrate on a non-traditional day of the week. And why not?

Want to upgrade from community center to hotel ballroom? For sure.
