Cost

It has been calculated that a mid-week wedding can, in fact, work out to be 1/3 cheaper than a weekend wedding. Here at the Arlington ballroom our mid-week weddings start at £2499! Leaving you more money to spend on the honeymoon, or to invest in your life together.

Availability

The availability is often a lot better and there will be more flexibility with dates, making your dream wedding more achievable.

Intimacy

Mid-week weddings suit a smaller and more intimate affair. Close family members and friends may be more than happy to take a couple of days off work to celebrate with you. For example, if you choose a day later in the week such as a Thursday, this means that the working week is nearly over and your guests are much more likely to let their hair down.

Quality

Wedding suppliers, from photographers to florists tend to prefer mid-week weddings as not only does it mean they can spend longer at the venue as they tend to have more bookings on a weekend.

Timing

It can seem like you spend your whole life waiting for the weekend. And this shouldn’t have to be the case for finding a free weekend at your chosen wedding venue. By having your wedding during the week, you will simply be able to get married sooner! This means there is no big countdown and you don’t have to wait over a year for the big day.
