What are the benefits of a midweek wedding?

Here at Grassfield Hall, we are big fans of a midweek wedding. So much so, that we offer an exclusive £1,000 discount on all 2-night midweek weddings in our venue.

Aside from the cost savings, we believe that there are many other tempting benefits to having a mid-week wedding, as opposed to the more traditional weekend wedding.

Here are five of our favourite reasons….

1. Cost savings

It has to be said that one of the biggest benefits of having a mid-week wedding is saving money. As well as discounted rates for your wedding venue, you can often negotiate better discounts with your other suppliers too. This can result in significant cost savings for you and your family, allowing you to allocate more budget to other aspects of your wedding or even put more in the pot for your dream honeymoon!

2. Better availability of suppliers

Since weekends are peak times for weddings, your first-choice venue, caterer, florist and wedding band may already be booked months or even years in advance. However, mid-week weddings are less common and more likely to have availability. This gives you a wider range of options to choose from, which can be particularly advantageous if you have your heart set on lots of specific details to make your day even more special. This can result in a more personalised day for you both.

3. More intimate and relaxed

Mid-week weddings tend to be smaller and more intimate compared to weekend weddings. And, with fewer guests in attendance, you can really spend more quality time with everyone present, creating a more relaxed and personal atmosphere. These intimate connections and meaningful interactions with loved ones are sure to make your wedding experience more memorable and special for everyone taking part in the celebration.

4. Flexibility for guests

Even though certain members of your wedding party may need to take a day or two off work to attend, midweek weddings can actually offer more flexibility for guests. Travel is usually easier during the week, avoiding busy weekend tourist traffic and higher train fares. Plus, guests may find it easier to take a day or two off during the week compared to taking a whole weekend off depending on their occupation. Additionally, mid-week weddings can allow guests to plan a longer period in the area to enjoy the event beyond just the wedding day. Guests might consider extending their stay in the area or taking a minibreak, making it a unique and more memorable experience for them as well.

5. A break from the norm

Who wants to blend in with the crowd anyway? Mid-week weddings stand out and show that you are daring to be different. They tend to be more memorable due to their unconventional nature and offer a break from the traditional weekend wedding routine. It’s likely that your midweek wedding will come as a refreshing change for both you and your guests to reflect your individual personalities and style.


If you are open to a non-traditional approach to your wedding and are looking for potential cost savings, unique experiences, and more flexibility, a mid-week wedding can be a great option.
