    Our wedding is on a Saturday. I want to plan a group trip to Dunn's River Falls for either Thursday or Friday. Is there any reason we shouldn't leave the resort the day before our wedding? What did other brides do on their day before?

      The day before our wedding is FI's 30TH birthday... wow... so... we'll try not to party too much.... i guess....

      no excursions for me though... i need to be careful of weird tan lines.

        Hmmm, the day before the wedding was a Thursday & we pretty much just hung out at the resort but thats mainly because that was the day that most of our guests arrived to Jamaica. They got acquainted with the resort that day & we had our welcome dinner that night.
        Our wedding was on a Friday & we did Dunn's River the day after the wedding, on Saturday.
        I'm not sure I'd suggest doing DR the day before the wedding because many of my guests talked about how sore they were the next day & how it was such a workout! A group of the guys even woke up early the day after & went to the hot tub to ease their achy legs. I don't think you want sore, achy guests on the day of the wedding.
        What you do on that day I think all depends on how many days your guests are going to be there. If you don't want to do DR the day after the wedding then I'd definitely do it on Thursday as opposed to Friday.

          I agree with avoiding DR the day before. You can get really sore and personally I just don't want to hurt myself lol

          We are planning on doing a little rehearsal amongst ourselves and dinner. I think chilling out is a good idea...I know I will be a nervous wreck so I'll need it!

          What about a cruise? I was in touch with Lee's Tours about doing a 2 hour cruise...$75 a head though

            Personally I'm meeting with the wedding coordinator the day before the wedding. We arrive on a Saturday and our wedding is on Tuesday, so Monday is the day we go over the wedding details.

            We plan on having a rehearsal party on Monday night.

              Will probably just be an ordinary day at the resort for me. Some pool and bars drinks, hanging out with friends and fam.
              My plan is to watch a couple weddings during the week (we arrive on a sat and wedding is on thurs so should be easy ) before my wedding so I know what goes on :).

                I did Dunns River and fell and cut my leg pretty bad. Of course I am a major klutz. So i'm planning on keeping myself safe until after the wedding.

                  I would avoid the falls on Wed., Thurs., and Friday, as these are the cruise ship days when it is packed. I had a friend who was married at ROR and the day following the wedding, everyone hiked the falls. Unfortunately, the groom's mother fell at the top step and broke her collarbone. I personally wouldn't take any chances before the wedding!

                    We arrive at the resort on a Tuesday and the wedding is Friday. We plan to visit DR Saturday after we have our ttd session. The days before will be filled by assembling welcome bags, relaxing and visiting family on the island.

                      Hi, we will be chilling out the day before and checking with the wedding co-ordinator to make sure everything is ok. I wouldn't want to go off site just incase she finds a problem and can't get hold of us.
