I'm the poster who got married on a Monday because it fell on my and DH's dating anniversary.
I say get married on the date you want but, as others have stated, you have to consider that if it falls midweek, not as many guests would be able to attend as, say, on the weekend (ours fell on a national holiday so it happened to work out). However, with that in mind, I find it amazing how many people who aren't the bride and groom forget the wedding isn't about them and, without the bride and groom, the wedding wouldn't be happening in the first place. I'm sure people could say it's about sharing the day with family and friends but, really, for DH and me, the most important part was making a covenant with each other and God. We'd never lost sight of that for even a moment.
I'm also pretty amazed at some of the comments because I'm wondering if these are posters for whom nothing is significant or important or special enough to want to have as part of whatever the event/situation is. In my case, the date *was* extremely important to me. However, having a traditional dress, having traditional rings, having an even number of attendants on both sides, having a traditional head table, having my hair and makeup done professionally, having a professional photographer, blah blah blah weren't as important (there were a lot more details than that that really weren't very important to me). I could "roll my eyes" or consider other people inconsiderate for wanting to spend thousands on a dress to be worn once or that the ring has to have a specific cut to the stone or having a destination wedding at a place where lodging is expensive or that blah blah blah has to be perfect, but my feelings are what's right for others isn't necessarily going to be what's right for me because those aren't my choices and it's not *my* wedding. DH and I are attending a family wedding that's 5-6 hours away on a Friday, which means we have to take at least two vacation days to attend. It never even occurred to me to wonder why they didn't schedule it for a Saturday instead or make it earlier in the day so that we could drive home afterwards at a decent hour. It just never occurred to me because this wedding isn't about *me* and I'm not paying for it. We figured if we could attend great; if not, we sent them a wedding gift and wish them the best.
If people take umbrage at my post, well, then I figure I'm likely rolling my eyes at their comments, too. Have the wedding that you want on the day you want it; it is not inconsiderate or rude or thoughtless or sickeningly sentimental to have the date be important enough that you end up having your wedding midweek (FTR -- I didn't want to pick some random date for our wedding and neither did DH; again, the date may not be so significant to others, but it was pretty darned significant to us...and our guests didn't have a problem with it).
