Get the Skinny on Sunday Weddings

Willowdale Estate is finding the trend of Sunday weddings becoming more popular every year. So why get married on a Sunday you ask? Let’s explore the facts:

  1. Greater Savings – Sunday weddings are not just for holiday weekends anymore. Sundays are for savvy couples looking to have all the aspects of an elegant affair with even greater savings. Savings that can lead to a fantastic honeymoon, possibly a down payment on a home, or maybe even a larger budget for some of those fun elements of your wedding day that you just can’t resist!
  2. A Full Weekend With Guests – Imagine your wedding weekend filled with family and friends arriving on Friday, a Rehearsal Dinner on Saturday and ending on a high note with your Reception closing out the weekend. With all of the excitement leading up to your wedding weekend, it’s nice to know that you’ll have Friday and Saturday to spend time with the people you love. Sunday weddings also give your guests more travel time prior to your wedding, and may even lead to cheaper flights on Monday, both for you (as you head out on a fabulous honeymoon!) and your guests.
  3. Planning Ahead – No matter what day your wedding is – Friday, Saturday or Sunday – some of your guests will undoubtedly have to take a day off from work, and they will be happy to make that sacrifice in order to be with you on your wedding day. Sending a save-the-date is also a great way to give your guests the time they need to plan ahead, especially if they do need to make travel or work arrangements.

The bottom line is, Saturday is still the most desirable day of the weekend, so dates book fast! Rather than opting for a season, venue, or even a wedding year that they didn’t plan on, we find that Sundays are a great alternative, and are gaining steady popularity with newly engaged couples. Have you planned a Sunday wedding of your own or attended one as a guest? We’d love to hear more about your experience, so please share your thoughts with us below!

Spring at Willowdale Estate

Like most people in New England, we start to look for the first signs of Spring as the snow starts to melt and the days start getting warmer in March.  Last year we had the pleasure of hosting a beautiful Mansion Wedding in late March for Lindsey & Shannon.  With our spring season just around the corner we are looking back at last spring and the peachy pastel details from this romantic spring wedding in the mansion with florals from Petal Floral Design, event design from mStarr event styling + design and photography from Megan Dandeles Photography.
