Off day wedding advantages

Saturdays are by far the most popular day to host a wedding, however there is an upsurge in 'off day' weddings.  Couples yearn for a unique experience for their wedding day and are willing to look into having their big event on another day of the week.

A recent blog post on Perfect Wedding Guide (read full blog here) offers a few advantages to 'off day' weddings. 

  • Think about your anniversary date. Is there a specific date with meaning to you. As you celebrate your anniversary year after year more couples are looking for a meaningful date. The date they met, their parents anniversary, the date they got engaged, etc.
  • Your favorite caterer, photographer and other vendors will very likely be more available on an off day increasing your chances of getting all of your favorites.
  • Many couples are looking to host their wedding around popular holidays to involve extended family members who would be coming in town already.

At Bay Horse Inn you'll find our rates are less each day of the week with Saturday the highest.  We are currently sold out every Saturday from May 2017 through October 2017 and Sunday and Fridays are beginning to sell out as well.   View our availability calendar for your date and call Nicole at 317-760-8778 or email to discuss your upcoming wedding.
