We are getting married in my hometown which is a 3 hour drive from where we live now. The wedding is on a Saturday night with the rehearsal & rehearsal dinner on Friday.
How many days before the wedding would you suggest taking off and being in the area? I was thinking of taking off Wed-Fri and driving to my parents’ place Tuesday night. Is that too much time? Too little? I know the days leading up are hectic no matter what, but do you think it’s helpful to take the time off or does it not really make a difference?

I think that sounds like a great plan, if you can take off those days. It will hopefully give you so much to relax in there, and not be rushed finishing anything up or running around.

I would say get there Thursday maybe Wednesday if you have a lot to do. I only took off the day before the wedding but I have a lot of help. Good luck! It will all get done!

We were married on a Friday evening with the rehearsal and Rehearsal Dinner being on Thursday night. I took off Tuesday through the rest of the week and that seemed like enough time. I was still a raging lunatic the day before our wedding but I don’t think that would have changed even if I had the whole month off. Heading up to your parents on Tuesday night should be plenty.
