How Many Days Before Are You Arriving?

Recommended Posts

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 :)

    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
