I think it sounds great! Because it’s optional people can go if they want but if they want to explore they can do that too!

The activities sound nice and if they don’t want to be involved the don’t have to.

We’re doing the same thing, semi-destination wedding in Northern Iowa.  80+ guest will be Out of Town.

Wednesday – arrive, set up, casual dinner
Thursday Day – Boating, fishing, girls go to get nails done
Thursday Night – Welcome party
Friday Day – Breakfast, Boating
Friday Night – Rehersal dinner – all welcome
Saturday – Ceremony, reception
Sunday AM – Brunch

I think these sound great, but be sure to delegate responsibility for running things when the wedding week rolls around.  I was so much more scatterbrained during the actual wedding week than I thought I would be.  So much going on at once!   But these sound like really fun events for your guests!

Another idea is that on the wiki there is a weekend plan that one of the bees put together.  I copied it and rewrote it for our stuff.  I figured I could print out and put in folders along with brochures, maps, etc and give to guests that will be around for the whole weekend.  I think it’s under the timeline wiki
