Ask Liz: Over-scheduling Your Destination Wedding Guests

My advice column is up on The Broke-Ass Bride:

Dear Liz,
We live in Los Angeles, and I'm planning my wedding in Lake Arrowhead on Labor Day weekend, about three hours away. We're both from New York, so most of our guests are coming from the East Coast. I'm worried about how to keep everyone entertained and make sure they're having fun that weekend. Most of them are arriving on Friday, and the wedding is on Sunday. The hotel lodge has a lot of activities - kayaking, boat tours, field walks - and I'm trying to figure out what I should sign them up for, and when, when they're not attending the wedding. I'm also thinking about scheduling a welcome cocktail reception or dinner that Friday night, but should I do a breakfast or lunch on Saturday and Sunday, too? I feel that if  I don't structure their time outside the wedding, they're going to end getting bored. What should I do?

Signed,
Destination Nowhere
