    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

      Some are coming that Tuesday but the rest are coming Wednesday to which we are planning a Meet and Greet on Wednesday night...It was easier for guest to take a few days off and make it a long weekend and back to work on Monday!

        I think a lot depends on how far your guests are travelling to the destination. I'm no expert on geography but if, for example, you were getting married in Mexico and most of your guests lived in the southern states, then might they just make a long weekend of it, rather than take a whole week or two weeks off work?


        We chose a Saturday principally because it was the date we wanted (the anniversary of when we got together). We are also having some guests from Australia, who would prefer to come on a weekend. Also, we're having a choir, which is an amateur choir, so the members would probably be in work in the week.


        Last year, though, I went to a wedding in Jamaica and it was on a Monday.

          Yeah, our problem was that half of our guests are coming from Europe and are traveling sat to sat and most of the other guests are traveling from the southern states. After a lot of thought we decided to have the ceremony on a Wednesday.
