Destination wedding on a Thurs or Friday? Debating
Posted 21 November 2009 - 01:25 PM
I am planning a Puerto Rico wedding, very small, with our immediate famalies, their spouses, and a few very close friends. We all live on the East Coast USA, so the flight times will be 2-3 hours of travel for what we hope will be a memorable, relaxed long weekend kind of celebration.
Looking at the prices (although I have verry little info from my prefered location yet), I am assuming that a Friday wedding ceremony may allow for some extra room in our budget.... but I am wondering if it is too much to expect my guests to fly in for a weekday wedding so I can save a few bucks?
My guests will be my dearest friends and family, so I think they will be on board for whatever we want. Thought I would run it by you all anyway, feedback from a neutral source always helps!
My vision: Me and my guy fly in on Wednesday morning, get ready....etc etc... have a welcome happy hour Thursday evening, or perhaps a beach side bbq or something to celebrate our guests arrivals. Perhaps a friday evening wedding. Then a Saturday celebration with our famalies and closest friends, with some sort of Puerto Rico unique activity with our guests in mind. We want to be good hosts, and experience something new and fun with the people that mean the most to us!
What do you all think? Thanks in advance!

We're getting married on a Sunday - everyone is arriving on Friday, Saturday is the rehearsal dinner, marriage on Sunday and Monday to relax, everyone leaves on Tuesday.

The thing to consider is that many of your friends and family will make this a vacation so flying in during the week should not be an issue. Just give everyone plenty of notice to plan.
Good luck! Sounds like it will be a wonderful wedding weekend!

Also, some resorts request that you are there at least 3 full days in advance of your wedding (mostly to iron out details). You should definitely find out if this is a requirement at your resort.
