    I think a cookout would be fun and it would let your guests still be free with their time.

    I think that is a fantastic idea. I wouldn’t feel obligated but it would be nice to have some structure – and there’s still plenty of time to fit other activities in, if so desired.

    I’d probably go to the cookout and rehearsal dinner to mingle. Other than that I would probably want to spend time touring around with my husband. I do like the options of having events to go to though!

    I agree, these do all sound nice ^^ and not too time consuming. If it’s clear they’re optional I don’t see why there’d be a problem.

    @swisea01:  I would probably attend all but the shopping just because I personally don’t like spending my vacation time shopping.  I want to enjoy the sunshine and EXPERIENCE things!

    DH and I just travelled for a friend’s wedding but we also planned on being there for a week and exploring the area.  I kind of think the B&G were offended we didn’t spend more time with them, but there weren’t planned events like that, it was an end of the night text message saying “we’re all here doing this” and we were already exhausted from exploring all day.  So I guess what I’m trying to say is don’t be offended if people opt out!

    I voted to attend the cookout and rehearsal dinner because those are things you would do with your significant other and/or children. I probably would not attend the shopping trip… Maybe you could plan a spa day instead of the shopping trip? More people may go to that.

    It depends. If I knew a lot of the other guests, I would be happy to attend most or all of these events. However, if I didn’t know anyone else, then it is unlikely I would go. For example, we attended a super small DW and it was all family and just a BFF for the bride and groom. We were invited to a bachelorette/bachelor party/hangout and we gracefully declined. We ended up attending the RD however.

    I would feel obligated to attend all if the whole purpose of going to FL was to celebrate.  I would pick option 1 and 3 to go for sure.  I WOULD do all three, but the second option is not appealing to me and I would dread going.  I just hate shopping with people!
