    I was thinking that there were up to 6 weddings a day since there are that many time slots on the website where you book. So only 3 makes me much less concerned about getting a reception location that I'm happy with.

    I would actually like to get married on the Tuesday of the week that we're looking at (it would be the anniversary of the proposal) and there is lots of availability, but I don't know that with the flight schedules that I'll be able to be in Jamaica for the required 2 days. Also, my sister is a teacher and so since we're not doing this on March Break or over Christmas, she's only going to be able to be there for the weekend plus 2 days (either before or after the weekend), so scheduling is becoming a bit of a problem. I guess it's like that for everyone and so that's why the middle of the week and the weekends are popular.

    I can't believe how stressed I'm getting about this already and the wedding is so far away. I guess picking the resort and the date are 2 of the biggest decisions.

    Anyways, I've rambled on enough. Thanks again for your calming words of wisdom.

    I am also a bride from Ontario, so the only company is sunquest. I am booking with my TA and she told me it doesnt matter what day of the week your guests fly out, especially to be part of a group rate. It only matters that you and your witnesses are there in the time required. There are flights for Jamaica on Saturday, that is when ours is.

    The other thing is westjet flys to Jamaica direct from Ottawa. You can search which days they fly in and out of Jamaica so she could figure out her flights.

    If you get a great TA they should do all this for you to help you out. Hope you figure everything out.

      Thanks so much jmhein. I spoke with my TA about this and she got in touch with the main Riu wedding people and asked if arriving Saturday and getting married was okay for me (all day Tuesday was available for the week we're going). They said that it was fine legally and up to the coordinator at ROR to decide for sure. So, my TA e-mailed her and it's been confirmed! So I have a location and a date. Ahhh! I can't believe it. It's much more real now. Thanks again for your help.

I think they count the Monday and the Tuesday as the 2 days and it was no problem. Or maybe they count the Saturday and Monday, I'm not sure! But I know that I'm married and had a wonderful wedding, so you can definitely arrive on a Saturday as well!!

        Thanks for the advice christenew! We are going to have to work something out for my sister on a separate flight since Sunquest doesn't do 4 day packages, but I was only thinking about Air Canada for some reason. I completely forgot about WestJet. So there are options. My TA is going to help out with this thankfully.
