I remember when we got married in Peru, I asked me wife about the day of the week. She said only Saturdays. I asked why not Friday? She said because everyone works 6 days a week. And if you plan a party any other day no one will come because work comes first. We also had a civil wedding. The guy who officiated wanted to leave because my wife was a little late (!) getting downstairs. I had to give him something extra to stay because he threatened to walk out! All in all a good time was had by all, and my wife enjoyed the Hora Loca!

I think it might be a family thing with my in-laws. They all own textiles businesses and work pretty much 24/7. :) :) We have never met up unless it was a Saturday evening with a few exceptions for lunch!

Oh, ok. I thought your wife said "everyone works 6 days a week. And if you plan a party any other day (than Saturday) no one will come".
Got it!!!!

Seems like some fuzzy math to me.
24/7 doesn't equal 6 days a week.
