If you have immediate family coming in from out of town, how early are they flying in? And I mean immediate family like mom and dad. Is it based on actual or special activities planned or coming in early to spend time with you?
Also, will they be staying with you or someone else or staying in a hotel?

My parents are planning on coming the Tuesday night, or Wednesday morning before our Saturday wedding. My mom is helping me out with some DIY stuff, as well as doing our cake! They’re staying with us. My sister (MOH) and her husband are coming the Thursday I believe, and they’re staying with us too (it’s going to be crazy!!!!).

My parents are both coming the day before the wedding, relatively early in the day. They are coming then mainly to make it to the rehearsal and dinner the evening before the wedding. They both have hotel rooms. I won’t be spending a lot of time with them beforehand because I will be busy anyway.

My dad and stepmom are coming in the Sunday before our Saturday wedding. They’ll be leaving the Monday after. My mom and stepdad are coming in the Wednesday before. No particular reason for either…just coming in as soon as they can to be with us and help with any last minute stuff that needs doing. They’re staying at hotels because we have NO place to put them in our home!

many of ours are coming in on thursday or friday before the sunday wedding. they are staying in the hotel where we blocked rooms; it’s a very reasonable rate and will just make things much easier.

Mine parents and best friend are flying in 2 weeks early as I live overseas. All three will be staying with us, but my folks are headed to a military resort in Bavaria for the first week so it’ll just be my best friend. The second week we’ll do some touristy stuff and take my mother to Belgium for a belgian waffle and chocolate (this has become a yearly tradition with her LOL). Then the wedding and afterwards a week in Germany then they all leave again. ;-

Thanks for letting me compare. When I mentioned the rehearsal was probably going to be on the Thursday before the Sunday wedding because the venue only allows M-Th rehearsal’s, my FI’s step mom didn’t seem like that would work for them. I thought it a little strange they weren’t planning on coming in for a little longer than just the weekend considering they have to fly so far and one of those days being a work holiday for them anyways. Well it’s a different family dynamic I guess. I’ll ask the venue if they can make an exception but otherwise…I don’t know.
