The move to getting married on weekdays

From Sunday Morning, 10:52 am on 20 February 2022

More and more couples are tapping into a trend of choosing weekdays for their weddings. And not just because it's cheaper. Around one in five weddings in America takes place from Monday to Friday, and that figure is continuing to rise due to problems caused by Covid-19 (including popular locations being backed up at weekends). Some wedding directors are reportedly fielding 50% more inquiries for mid-week weddings than before the pandemic. Former TV personality Kay Gregory is one of New Zealand's best known marriage celebrants. She has also noticed a huge increase in the popularity of weekday weddings in this country, with roughly 75% of her bookings now taking place on a Friday.
