    So I'm meeting with my travel agent to book my trip this afternoon, and I can't decide on what day to leave.

    My wedding is Friday July 11th at 6pm. I originally thought we would leave on Wednesday. Mom thinks we need to get there Tuesday to have time to make all the plans with the WC. We aren't doing the legal ceremony there, so residency isn't an issue.

    If we can't meet the WC until Thursday for a Friday wedding, is that bad? Should I listen to mom and add a night to our trip? Help!!!

      i did show up in Mexico on Sat or Sun for our Friday wedding, but only because we wanted to make a longer week of the trip. i think i met w/my WC on Tue. but there was nothing that needed to be done that couldn't have waited until the morning of the wedding to be honest. so in my case, meeting before the day of the wedding (or morning of) wouldn't have been a big deal at all.

        I think meeting with the WC the day before would freak me out. With that said, they do it all the time so its not really a big deal. I just know I would want more time. If you are comfortable with meeting her a day before, I don't think its an issue.

        EDIT make sure to ask your WC if a day before is okay, they might need more time than that to order flowers and make menu choices, etc.

          Thanks for all the quick responses!
          I emailed Laikin (the WC) to see if we needed to come in Tuesday, but I haven't heard back from her, and I have 45 minutes until I meet with the TA!!!!

          I think I just might book for Tuesday just in case...

            I'm going on Monday for my Friday wedding. Part for residency, part for piece of mind! I would get way too nervous booking everything for my wedding the day before. I need time to come up with back up plans and be an annoying bridezilla...

              We're going Wednesday for our Saturday wedding. I think you should go Tuesday. You truly might not meet with Laikin until Thursday, but it will give you time to scout out the resort and see if you find locales for the ceremony or reception that they had not shown you in the pics. I think it will help you get a feel for the resort and for what you want/expect from your wedding.

                I'm also going Wednesday for my Saturday wedding, but I wonder if that's enough time to meet with the coordinator and make sure everything's set up--my guests are arriving on Thursday!!!

                I think I should have left atleast 2 days between my arrival and my guests... I hope it will be ok!

                  I think it will be plenty. I've heard the meetings don't take long.

                    We're also going Wed for our Saturday wedding. I want to get the wedding details out of the way on Thursday so we can relax and mingle with our guests on Friday.
