Never would have occurred to me to plan my wedding to be on a Sunday. 

Also, having the wedding shortly after Christmas day and Easter Sunday will save you a lot of money on flowers/decorations in the church?

My friend was married Easter Monday.

So I proposed, and we are currently planning our wedding. :coffee:

I've never been to a Catholic wedding not on a Saturday...are there restrictions on other days of the week? Or is it just a cultural thing. 

How are you going to send my invitation?  Plus 1, I'm bringing my bride.

Although no longer forbidden, weddings in Advent and Lent are still frowned upon. They're supposed to be really simple, very few if any flowers, etc.

It's a bit of an unusual situation. We have a venue we like for the reception, but it's booked Saturdays until 2018. I don't want to wait that long, so we are planning on getting married the Sunday before Labor Day. Hopefully most will have the holiday off and can use it to travel. If they can't make it, que sera.

I have been to Sunday weddings and receptions.  Most have been epic. Tended to be smaller, more relaxed, a little less drinking and everyone visits.  Different frame of mind.  Plan a wedding you guys will enjoy and you will.  I'm clearing my social calendar now.

Hmmm. I think we have a 2017 meetup venue. :think:

My folks married during a Sunday Mass pre-Vatican II

 

I think you can marry any day of the week

Yes you can marry on Sundays now. I don't know when it changed, but Sundays were forbidden as were first class feasts (aka solemnities). In some places, post-Trent, Mondays were one of the most popular days to get married, but you were to abstain on Fridays and Saturdays from meat.
