    I’m going to a similar semi-destination wedding soon and I wouldn’t expect anything.

    Also why do you expect people to arrive Friday? I’d be arriving Saturday.

    I have not voted. With picnic plus rehearsal, I think you might want to rest before the wedding. The horse riding sounds fun to me, but it seems you have planned enough. You have already arranged helicopter discount too. You have really done a lot of planning for your guests.  I think it is nice, but don’t forget they may already have some plans in mind too.

    They’re adults; they can entertain themselves.  It’s a nice gesture, but I would rather explore on my own.  The list on your wedding website should be plenty.

    We are having a semi-destination.. it’s destination for all of fi’s family.

    We are having a welcoming party the day before, and a brunch after. At the reception we’ll have a candy buffet, cigar bar, dj/dancing, and a photo booth. we’ll also have 2 poker tables.

    That’s pretty much all we’re doing!

    Honestly, Banff is a great place for shopping or just exploring the nearby hiking trails and such. There’s so much to do there, I really wouldn’t worry about trying to arrange anything else for your guests.

    I think it’s a nice sentiment but everyone knows this a desitnation wedding and can plan accordingly. If you want to do a welcome lunch or dinner and a farewell brunch I think that would be nice but people will all want to be on different schedules. My cousin went to a DW and the bride scheduled literally 4 days of stuff. Her family and the bridal party were a little annoying to have their whole extended weekend planned for them and felt pressured to go to everything. 

    It sounds like you are really already hosting your guests really nicely, I woudln’t worry about anything else.
