I’d give yourself a couple of days before your friends start arriving – you can run errands and take some time for yourself before people start needing your attention!

If you are able to take the time off work, I’d say give yourself enough time to get everything done and then a day to relax. That’s what I did, and I’m so glad! Plus it gives you time to take care of anything last minute that might come up without adding too much stress!

We flew across the country for our wedding…which was also on a Saturday. We decided to go on the Monday before.  That gave us the weekend at home to do any last minute running around, and then enough time to get organized there for the wedding. We even got in a little quality alone time before friends and family started to arrive.

knickergold :  If you can take the time, I’d probably come in Saturday, so a week early. That way you’ve got a day to relax (Sunday) and 3 business days before your guests arrive to get your marriage license, run any last errands, etc. Once guests and family arrive on Wednesday/Thursday you’ll likely find you have very little time to do those things.

I know that while we got married where we live, a good majority of our guests came from out of town. The second they started arriving we were super busy between visting/entertaining and just last minute errands/details.
