Why You Should Host a Day Wedding: Reasons to Consider
The wedding postpones scenario and then rescheduled to the latter half of 2020, is the most disappointing thing happened this year to wedding vendors and companies. That is why most of our wedding partners(vendors) suggests a day wedding. The daytime option is especially good for outdoor ceremonies and receptions. You can have the ceremony, the party, and everyone can go home before dinner.
No budget-busting meal, no late night for guests with children, easier than brunch for night owls, extended drinking/partying time. There are some unexpected benefits to saying "I do" by daylight. Chances are that you haven't seriously considered a daytime wedding. But despite the bad rap they often get, there is a lot of pros-and really very few cons-to a daytime wedding.
Indian families usually host an evening wedding on a weekend so that guests get to enjoy the celebrations to the fullest. However, with too many wedding plans moved to the latter half of 2020, evening celebrations might be off the books for many this year.
Here are five reasons you might want to rethink what time you will throw your wedding, planners say.
It's better for your budget.
There are myriad reasons a daytime wedding can be less expensive: Not only is your venue likely to offer discounted daytime rate-or a less costly food-and-beverage minimum-you can almost count on guests drinking less than they would at night-and that means you can save big bucks on booze, points out our wedding planners.
You can also save some bucks if you opt for subtle pastels and laces with lilies and pink roses for your day wedding decor. It is an aesthetically pleasing view even if you opt for minimal decor.
It is one of the major reasons why you should consider a day wedding if you are rescheduling or planning for a new date. The availability of your preferred vendor partners is higher for day weddings.
You can serve an unexpected menu.
Hosting a daytime wedding reception doesn't mean you have to work with a limited number of menu choices; in many cases, you'll find that your wedding food and drink options are actually broader by day than they are by night.
Choose whatever you want. Whether that's a locally-sourced family-style meal, laid-back sandwiches, and cold salads, or an upscale take on brunch favorites like pancakes and avocado toast, you and your caterer can come up with a menu that helps create the day you've always imagined.
The daytime event opens a whole new door to bring creative with a menu-think: of made-to-order crepes, an omelet station, gourmet pizzas, warm steak sandwiches, or even classic chicken and waffles.
You can plan interesting activities.
Go beyond the quintessential corn hole and do a series of lawn games so more guests can participate. We suggest Bocce Ball, Giant Jenga, or [create] a customized crossword puzzle about [you and your future spouse].
For the couple with a bit of edge, a temporary tattoo parlor will get conversations going. Board and table games, piñatas, and there are many more options to opt for. Interacting with your guests, while educating them about their favorite drink is a sure-fire way to keep your guests engaged.
For the couple looking to do something different a daytime wedding can allow more time with their guests, instead of just dancing and drinking, they can actually interact with each other and have a good time.
You won't have to struggle with photos.
By having your wedding during the day, you'll only have natural light to work with which is better for photos. A wedding is incomplete without some amazing photos that add to your memories.
From beautiful, romantic pictures to fun and quirky ones, all of them tell a story when added to your album. So, what's better than the mellow lights of the sunset.
With a daytime wedding, the couple doesn't have to see each other ahead of time to take advantage of the sunlight. However, it can put a lot of pressure on the photographer to get all of the photos done in a short time before the light fades, yet the sunset is the best time to get a mesmerizing photoshoot done for you as well as your guests.
You can relax at night however you choose.
Daytime wedding wraps up-likely around 4 p.m. or 5 p.m. which means, you will have the whole night to enjoy however you want. If your wedding guest list includes a lot of families with children, a day wedding allows the kids to take part in your celebrations with ease.
With their bedtime scheduled hours away, the kids can add to the cheerful giggles at your wedding. However, even for grown-ups, a wedding can be stressful, and often feels like couples are holding their breath until all of the formalities are complete and they can finally let loose and enjoy friends and family.
But couples with daytime weddings can keep the party going if they choose-or spend a more laid-back, non-scripted evening with loved ones or even by themselves, that's total up to them!
