How long will you be out there beforehand?

Hello destination brides

Just wondering how long before the wedding you're all going out there?

We get married on the Friday and we're travelling out the Saturday before, so we get a good 6 days of sunshine and tanning before the wedding - I can't wait!!

    Like Barbados we have four days. Get there Sunday, marry on thurs. I too will be cheating with a bit of sunbed action due to the very fair nature off my skin! 33days to go!

    Ah we fly out 1st June and get married the 6th so it's a nice build up! x

  • We get there on 27th July and marry on 5th August so plenty of time to catch a tan. Hehe image

    About 2 days before I think (not booked yet, but that's our plan).

    In NYC you have to go and do the paperwork to get the marriage licence and then leave it a minimum of 24 hours before the wedding. We're keen to do it asap and then be in honeymoon mode.
