Non-traditional Days to Get Married

When it comes to days of the week to get married on, most people choose Saturdays. But while we understand why, we at The Oaks also understand that sometimes, your budget, work schedule or personal options may not agree with a Saturday wedding. You don’t have to worry about not being able to hold your wedding ceremony on a Saturday, we are big on the comfort of you and your guests, so here are three nontraditional days that you can also have your wedding ceremony on.

  • Sundays

Why not choose brunch hours on Sunday to have a low key wedding ceremony and serve some of your favorite breakfast foods and beverages as part of your ceremony? The intimacy is sure to make your day special and last long in the minds of the family and friends that you invite.

  • Wednesday

Get married at our location on a Wednesday and then extend the wedding festivities throughout the weekend. The bonus is that a weekday wedding works especially well with our location and vendors are typically less expensive to book.

  • Friday

The trick to holding a Friday wedding is in the timing. It is best if you plan your ceremony for late in the evening, long after most of your guests would have been done with their workday. You can extend your reception to just a bit after midnight, so that you can ring on your first day as a married couple with your family and friends. Our location is perfect for this because we have our accommodation nearby and you and your guests could retire to your rooms after the ceremony.

The Oaks waterfront inn offers spacious guest rooms with extraordinary waterfront event facilities that are sure to complement and help make your wedding ceremony a joyous gathering of family and friends. We’re located in Maryland on a cove off Chesapeake bay, just an hour from Annapolis and minutes from St. Michaels, Easton and Oxford. We want to help you plan and enjoy your dream wedding, whatever day you may choose to fix it on, so contact us today.
