@tails:  I arrived on a saturday and my weddng was on a Monday. Unless you have loads to do I think arrivng a few days beforehand is sufficient. However, I see no issue with staying the weeek before. Give you time to relax…you’re gonna need it 🙂

@tails:  I think the extra money to change days/flights will be worth it. If your son is young it may be for the best. I am glad I didn’t arrive earlier, I probably wouldn’t have been able to fit into my dress LOL. When we take a vacation we take a break from our diets. We did stay an extra week after the wedding though, most people left for home but we stayed with our kids and enjoyed a nice week relaxing on the beach

If you miss your super early flight because of the early departure, it won’t be worth saving that $150!

I vote to change your flight (If you don’t mind losing a few days off your vacation or can move your departure date back)

If it were me I would geth there on Sunday before the wedding, and then stay for 2 weeks from that time. I had a destination wedding at the beach. (within driving distance) We arrived on Wednesday for a Friday wedding and it was just fine. It would have been too long if we came earlier. I felt like I couldn’t go out to the beach because I would get sunburned. We had just enough to do to make it work out perfect.

@tails:  We’re planning on arriving on the Tuesday, with the wedding that Saturday. I was kind of hoping for a bit more time, but now I guess I have more motivation to ensure that everything is sorted out before we go! No last minute stuff; that is the plan 🙂

All we’d have to do once we get there is my hair & makeup trial, rehearsal, and somehow fit in a dinner or something to catch up with everyone.

@tails:  We arrived on a Tuesday and our wedding was on the Friday. We wanted to do the wedding as soon as we could so we could enjoy the rest of our time with our family and friends

We are arriving a few days before our just us wedding as well and we are really looking forward to it!  I see it this way, perfect time to soak up the alone time all while getting married in a kick a** location!
