I'm curious to hear when other couples are arriving to their wedding locations prior to a symbolic (non-legal) ceremony. 

We are having a Saturday wedding and have been planning on arriving Wednesday.  I have been under the impression that we'd meet with the WC on Thursday morning.  Most of our guests are arriving on Thursday and now I'm contemplating if we should arrive on Tuesday for an extra day of planning time, scoping out the resort, and possibly meeting with the WC a day or two earlier. 


I'd love to hear your plans.  Thanks!

Our wedding is Friday. We're arriving Monday. Most of our guests are arriving before us. We're only getting there so early b/c everyone else is, and we want to spend time with them. I don't think you need to add another day to your trip (unless you want to of course). I've heard that the WC meetings/final planning is quick and easy.

We arrive on sunday and the wedding is on thursday. I'm not sure if this is a good or a bad thing. My main concern is trying to to burn in all those days :S

We just booked our flights this morning! Wedding is on Thursday and we are actually arriving on Sunday, but not checking into the resort until Monday. We are staying with family on Sunday night. I assume we'll do the wedding coordinator meeting on Tuesday morning. 


Our guests' arrival is all across the board! Some are also coming on Sunday, some are coming each day after.

Our wedding is on Friday and we arrive Sunday pm. The resort has a three day prior to wedding rule, so we apparently had to be there by Monday. The previous times I have flown my ears take a while to pop so we decided to arrive late Sunday night so we can just go to bed and not worry about my ears. The later time flight was also cheaper :)
