    Oh wow, that just sounds exhausting.  Honestly, I wouldn’t do it, even though it means getting to your honeymoon earlier.  I imagine if you got there earlier you would just end up passing out in exhaustion in your hotel room for most of the  day anyway!

    That sounds exhausting, I agree. Could you go on Jan 3 maybe? I’m a HUGE advocate of taking Sunday off….otherwise, yeah, I’d want to get there ASAP. I always sleep on planes first thing in the morning

    Whether you get to St Lucia at 4pm or 10pm at night? hell, get me there at 4pm. I don’t want to sleep in, just to get to Jamaica at 10:30PM, UGH. I’d rather tough it out, be a sleepy butt, and pass out in my chair by the pool later.

    I also vote for going on the 3rd.  Take the early flight that day instead.

    Our wedding is on September 18th and we are on the September 19th flight to Australia.  Then again the flight is not until 10:30pm so we have the whole day to meet with people and finish up last minute things.

    Personally, I wouldn’t do it.  But, I’m really cranky when I’m sleepy.  ANd, I wouldn’t want to spend my first married day being a brat.

    On another note, I’ve been to Sandals St. Lucia Regency and LOVED it!!!  Enjoy!

    I would not do it.  You are going to be so exhausted that you won’t be able to do anything the day you get there so you might as well leave later and get there a little later so you are ready for the next day!

    Our wedding is a on a Saturday and we’re leaving for Hawaii on Monday morning.  I don’t think I’d want the added stress of HAVING to leave right away.  That way you’ll have time for last minute packing, etc.

    Oh i see. Yeah I”d still leave first thing in the morning. I’d hype myself up on caffeine and just go for it!

    Plus..you’re paying for that day, whether you get there at 4pm or 10:30pm. You can always sleep later.

    I think I would wait as well.  The wedding is going to hectic and the last thing you want to do is make the honeymoon feel like a to do.  I say cut yourself some slack and give yourself a little time to recoup from a crazy day!

    We are leaving for our honeymoon the Monday after our Saturday wedding because frankly, trying to get everything wrapped up and travel in a rush sounded like outright torture. This way, we get to sleep in, laze around in a fabulous hotel room without needing to check out, and recover a bit before going on the honeymoon! Win-win!

    I am adventurous so I would definately do it!

    I agree with EJS about getting your moneys worth and getting there early/sleeping later!
