We wanted it close to a weekend so that if people only wanted to come for a few days they didn't need to take too much time off work. 4. We are travelling Saturday to Saturday and we didn't want the wedding to be the day before we fly out. 5, I wanted several days before hand so I could meet with the wedding coordinator, do a hair trial, etc. and not feel rushed. Overall, I think it worked out well. I guess it also helped that we were really flexible about the actual date of our wedding as we didn't want a particular date i.e. 10-10-10 or something like that.
Thanks!! That helped a lot with my decision. I was thinking that I wouldn't be very relaxed during the days leading up to the wedding and not enjoy myself as much, but you have a good point that I might need time for hair trials etc. We are very flexible with the actual date as well, so that is not really an issue. I was focusing mostly on the timing on everything. Guess it might be more important to think about giving guests from the US an option to come for a few days. You just convinced me to choose Thursday Thanks!! Now let's just hope the date is still available :S
