I'm getting married in June of next year on a Friday. I was so set on having a welcome dinner/gathering on Thursday evening for our guests. I figured majority of our guests would be flying in on thrusday but thought they would arrive by 3pm and they would have enough time to check in and relax before gathering around 7:30pm.
Well I just found out that the earliest flight from chicago arrives in Punta Cana at 6:30 pm that Thursday (and that is with leaving Chicago at 8:15AM)! That means that by the time they get to the resort and check in it will be around 8pm or later.
do you think guests would still want to get together after travelling all day?? I'm kind of sad about the whole thing as very few of my guests can travel before Thursday.
I'm I stressing over nothing? should I continue to plan a welcome dinner for who ever can or would like to make it?
