    I only have a couple of dates that work for my wedding and all those Saturdays are booked. They can do it on some of those Fridays though, but I feel like it would throw the whole weekend off. Like asking people to take off that much work, and I guess we wouldnt be able to have a welcome dinner. What do you guys think?

    There is one Sat. that is REALLY inconvenient for us, but it's available. If Friday weddings don't sound appealing, I guess I will just take the Sat. one...

      I've booked mine for a Friday to make it easier for everyone - we get there monday, married friday and are there for another week after that.

      The people coming are happy as it means on a couple of days off work if they only want to go for a week

        Fridays are fine for a DW...our guests are arriving Wednesday and Thursday so there'd still be time for a rehearsal dinner before the wedding on Friday. Go for it!

          I originally wanted a Saturday but Riu was booked. So we are doing the Friday date. We arrive on Tues and everyone but us are leaving on Monday. We didn't get any complaints. If its what you want go for it.

            We had our wedding on a Sunday and it worked out perfect. We had some guests that couldn't afford longer than a weekend so they came in on Friday and left Monday (my family included). We had a welcome dinner on Friday and went into town afterwards to party in Cabo, relaxed on Saturday, and Sunday was the big day..

            Sunday may be another option for you.

              I'm getting married on a Sunday. I don't think it really matters. Just do what works for you. People are going to have to take off work no matter what.

                We were married on a Sunday too, and it worked out fine...

                  It's gotta be at Dreams?? Why don't you try other Hotels with nice views like Hilton, it's just a few miles next to Dreams, so the beach is the same pretty much (we did a wedding there once, and it was beautiful). Have you tried Westin Regina? The architecture in that Hotel is award-winner and a perfect location for beautiful pictures. I can recommend lots of hotels, most of them I've work in, and maybe you'll find a place that can accommodate to YOUR requirements not theirs.

                  Let me know if there's something I can help with. Good luck!

                    I think Friday would be fine. I'm sure your guests would appreciate an extra day off.

                      I am doing a Friday too. My plan is:

                      wed ~ guests arrive, welcome dinner (or something like that)
                      thurs ~ Chill out and relax. Or anything else the guests choose to do
                      Fri ~ wedding and pARTY!
                      Sat ~ chill and recoup
                      sun ~ guests leave

                      I sort of thought friday was perfect for my situation. I dont think the day matters when your on vacation. Good luck!
