Frequently Asked Questions… with answers!

We hope that the information in this page will provide answers to some questions that you might have about our packages:

We love your packages but really want our wedding on a weekend… can we buy a package for a weekend date?


The answer is no… and yes! Most Weekday Wedding Company staff is busy on weekends with larger weddings throughout Virginia and beyond. That said, we are always happy for you to inquire and, if it is possible for us to accommodate you we’d be happy to do so. We would like you to know, however, that Saturdays from April through October are very unlikely but Fridays and Sundays may occasionally be possible in some situations. Additionally, weekend pricing may be somewhat higher that the pricing listed here, please inquire.

Why do people choose to have their wedding on a weekday?

Great question and there are lots of answers! Many couples who choose weekday weddings are looking to keep it simple and not break the bank on a single event! Additionally, some couples are choosing to combine their ceremony with a little get-away so choose to have their wedding during the week and then extend their travels through the weekend. Finally, many who consider this alternative have been married before and have already had the larger affair and now are choosing a completely different experience for their wedding. Whatever the reason, it’s a great option!

How does the Weekday Wedding Company accept payment?

We are able to accept credit card payments through Paypal and are also happy to accept your personal check, cashier’s check or money order. We require a non-refundable down payment of 50% at the time of booking and the remaining balance due 2 weeks before your wedding date. Visit PayPal.

What is an Interfaith Minister?

Interfaith ministers are trained professionals, who have studied extensively and been ordained by one of a growing number of Interfaith Seminaries around the world. Interfaith ministers can serve as companions and guides in helping people to deepen or reclaim the nourishment of their own religious roots while opening their hearts to the wisdom and beauty of other traditions and teachings. Regardless of their own religious tradition or spiritual path, Interfaith ministers are trained professionals who:

  • Are dedicated to serving the spiritual needs of all those who seek their guidance, counsel, and assistance, without regard to race, religion, socioeconomic status, sexual orientation, ethnic background, gender or age.
  • Have chosen to learn about, respect, and appreciate the diversity of paths to the Divine and to look for the universal truth in each one.
  • Seeks to promote understanding, harmony, and love among people by emphasizing what is universal in the teachings of the many spiritual paths and faith traditions.
  • Are committed to the ongoing deepening of their own spiritual practice and connection to the Divine, so that their service to others is always grounded in the integrity of their own spiritual life.
