    Arriving on a Sunday...wedding on the Wednesday. Keep in mind you have to be in the country for 2 days before they can marry you. The "2" days cannot be your arrival date or a weekend - at least a sunday

      Another thing to consider is if you are flying out of Calgary, what days of the week does sunquest offer service.

            We got married on a friday at 12, and there was only one other wedding at 4pm that day. We arrived on the Thurs, got married 8 days later, then had 6 days to relax, had to do it that way as some guest only came for 1 week.

            We saw weddings the weekend before ours where there was up to 4 a day, but only really on the Fri and Sat, the other days, although not a day ( apart from Sun) went by without a wedding, usually only 1 or 2, spaced out, per day

              We are flying in, with almost every one of our guests, on Wed. Nov. 12th and getting married Saturday Nov 15th. The weekends are a bit more expensive for airfare so a Saturday wedding allows people to fly in during the week and save a little bit of money. We planned on leaving the 19th but we might stay a little bit longer.

I really would want it on a mon-thur but Jan 22 is my fiance birthday and he really wanted it on that day.. well see what happens :)


                Thanks again!
                I would be really nervous about guests flying in the day of, flights get delayed and canceled and the ride from the airport is unpredictable, not to mention that a day of travel is quite tiring. Just mho

                  I agree with you Courtney. I am a bit leary of having guests come in the day before, let alone the day of which is why most guests are arriving on Thursday (some on Wednesday with me) and the wedding is on Saturday. Because alot of them will be getting in late and with the way flights are arriving late or being cancelled, I want them to get to Jamaica relax then get prepared for the day of fabulosity...lol

                    I agree! My TA strongly advised not even having them fly in the day before, just in case. (Especially since we are leaving from MN in January...and ya never know with weather). So most of my guests will be coming Sat for our Monday wedding.

                      My wedding was on Friday Feb. 15th & it worked on great!! I didn't notice it was a busy day for weddings at all. It's also great for guests cuz then they can stay through the weekend if they want.
