For Destination Brides & Grooms, arriving one week prior to their wedding day (especially important if traveling across several times zones) is ideal. If they cannot pull that off - then 3 days in advance is adequate but not optimal.
This allows you time to accomplish;
- hair & make- up trial
- fitting for Tux
- pressing/steaming of the bridal gown
- learning your way around Oahu
- time to connect with your coordinator or vendors
- manicure/pedicure appointments
- last minute purchases
and most importantly - time to decompress from wrapping up all the details back home. And one more quick tip - book travel early for the best airfare prices.
