    My fiancee and I are arguing over what day is best to get married in our tropical destination. We are getting married in Costa Rica so, already we can't get married until the third day. He wants to get married at the very end, and I say day four. Any tips?

      We are getting married as soon as our "wait" period is over, which is 2 full business days. We decided to do it this way because we felt we could truly relax after the ceremony is over. Another thing to consider is if your guests are staying a different number of days than you are, which days they will be there.

        We're getting married on a Wednesday. The WC thought it was sort of an odd day to chose but we thought it was the most ideal for the people we know. Everyone LOVED that it was right in the middle of the week; That way they can either come a few days before or stay a few days longer!!

          Will you be going on a honeymoon after or have to go straight back to work?

              I'm arriving before my FI. He's coming on Thursday and we're getting married on Saturday. I wanted one more day in there, but you can't get married in St. Lucia on Sundays.

                We also will be getting married after our wait period is over (2days). This way it allows us to relax with our family and friends afterwards, instead of rushing right home. This period will allow us to unwind a bit.

                  We're doing the legal ceremony here. And getting married on day 3 there. And then we have a week more to party/vacation. (We awnt as MUCH R & R after the madness that is this wedding!)

                  I say go for Day 3!
                  Cause day 1 is a travel day, Day 2, is for planning/prepping, and Day 3, you are ready to go!

                    We are getting married on day 3. Just like she said above day 1 is traveling, day 2 is planning/prepping and day 3 you should be ready to say I do. Then you have the rest of the time to rest, relax and visit with your guests.
                    HIGH FIVE, WE'RE MARRIED!!!
