Timing of MOG Arrival in Town for Son's weekend Wedding?
My son & future daughter-in-law are flying into her hometown of Boston for a fall weekend wedding. It's on Sunday, and we're hosting rehearsal dinner early Saturday evening right after the rehearsal. Question is: what is the appropriate day to arrive? We're driving 5 1/2 hrs up to Boston ( baring no traffic or major accidents). The hotel & parking is very steep plus we have multiple rooms for family members - one who is in the wedding party. Groom won't get in until midnight. We understand nothing is planned (get together/meal/brunch) by bride's family. Is it foolish to chance driving up on Saturday, as long as we leave super early, check in, change clothes and show up for church rehearsal? Or, pay the extra $1000 for one extra night and twiddle our collective thumbs - but know we've arrived in town?
Is the a guiding rule or etiquette for when mother or parents of groom should arrive, or do leading up to the dress rehearsal?
Help much appreciated. -- somewhat lost Mom
