Is Thursday the new Saturday?

Whilst Saturday weddings seem like the must, it isn’t the only day of the week that you can get married!

Thursday, Friday, and Sunday weddings are also common for couples to tie the knot.

Thursdays are the new Saturday in our world. We offer a package deal from Monday – Thursday which includes venue hire, accommodation, and a traditional and delicious 3-course wedding breakfast for 50 people.


Our local wedding suppliers are always delighted when a mid-week wedding is booked because they enjoy filling their mid-week diary which means that this could also provide better rates and special deals – a handy money-saving tip!


If you provide plenty of notice to your guests to take a day, or 2 off they won’t mind.

Friday or Sunday weddings are less desired which means that there are more options for you. It also means that your ideal wedding suppliers will probably have more availability options too!


If you and your guests like to party then a Friday wedding may be more ideal than a Saturday! Guests won’t be traveling back the next day and it gives them time to enjoy the beautiful Wiltshire countryside and visit some of our quaint little towns and villages. If you’re not a party person then perhaps a Sunday would suit you more as it gives the perfect excuse for guests to leave a little earlier.


Having a Friday or Sunday wedding could provide you with the opportunity to add an additional celebration to your weekend. Most guests will earmark the entire weekend for your special day so why not add another smaller event such as a brunch, a rehearsal dinner, or group activity on the days before or after the wedding day?

Wellington Barn offers an amazing bespoke wedding package Friday - Sunday that provides:

  • Exclusive Venue Hire from 11am – midnight

  • 3 x Luxury Shepherd Huts

  • Round tables or rustic straight tables and chairs for up to 120

  • Dedicated event manager

  • Complimentary food tasting

  • Overnight carpark

  • Guest wifi

  • PA system inside and out

Contact the team today for a list of our available Friday and Sunday dates.
