  1. Just thought I would let you all know that I have had to cancel our DW. We are disappointed but I think it is for the best. We are going to have a wedding at home instead. I wish you all the best at your weddings! good luck.
  2. I didn't order them. I made them myself. The graphics are a stamp that I used for the cards. They are on business cards and then I cut out the colored card stock and stuck them on a magnet for the fridge. Thanks everyone!
  3. What a jerk! I can't believe that he would ask those questions. How arrogant can people be? I hope you find a great photographer and that this guy goes out of business!

    DW are still defnitally stressful. In terms of people booking it is stressful. You cannot please everyone. That is what I have learned. I've always been the "people pleaser" type person but I'm getting sick of it. We had a hard time deciding on where to go for our DW. We wanted to make sure that people could afford to go and also enjoy the destination. As I said before we have only 6 people booked (FI and myseld included). FI parents are a big source of stress for us. They say they are not going becuase they do not want to go to DR or anywhere else down south that is AI. There is no real reason. Money is not an issue or health problems. They are young people who are able to travel but decide not to because they did not get to choose the spot. When I say they I mean his mother. The father does not say a word. She wanted us to get married in Florida. We got engaged at Disney in Florida and they expected us to go back to get married. It would be way more expensive to do this for ourselves and our guests (if they stayed on resort). FI's cousin is bringing her daughter to Disney in April 2010 before she gets married in July 2010. Everyone is telling us to just go down with them and get married. I'm sorry but I don't want my wedding revolved around someone else. FI's mom would rather go to Disney with her neice and great-neice than go to our wedding. We called her on it and she did not deny. She said from day one that she was not going to our wedding. Her excuses were: there would be nothing for her to eat (as she is an extremely picky eater) and that there would be nothing for her to do because she does not drink or want to lay on the beach all day. She had a bad review from one person at her work who did not enjoy DR. I'm not even sure where he went or what kind of resort he stayed at (this person complains about everything) and she is taking his word like the word of God or something. FI said that she was being selfish and she replied "if you want to twist it that way." I made my STD's and worked very hard on them. I gave them out to everyone. Even people I know who cannot go because I did not want to exclude anyone. That was approx almost 4 weeks ago. I gave one to FI's mom. She has not spoke to us since then. She is acting like we are the ones that are in the wrong. It is her decision not to go and we are the bad guys apparantly. FI was wondering if there is anyone else out there with a similar situation where parents refuse to go for no good reason? He is really hurt by this. Me.. I could care less since their being so mean about it all. I only care for his sake. I'm sick of our wedding being a taboo topic that we cannot talk about when we are around his parents. Sorry for the rant. I'm just very frustrated with the new "in-laws". Looks like rough road ahead with them I think.
  5. We are going to Dreams Punta Cana, DR. We are leaving from Newfoundland, Canada (which is always more expensive beacuse we are an island). Our price for one week AI was $1721 taxes in. I am getting people saying that it is too expensive also. They say that they want to wait last minute to book and maybe get a cheaper deal. I try to tell them that is does not always work like that. The price goes up by $250 after the discount booking date. Right now we only have 6 people booked ( FI and myself included). We priced RIU Palace Punta Cana and it was more expensive from here than Dreams.

    jerseykitten- I feel your frusteration re people not booking. Including myseld and FI there are 6 people booked. I am getting the same response from people that they would love to go but are not acting on those comments. I am getting emails from my TA asking if there is anyone else ready to commit to booking. I hope some more people start booking soon!
  7. Dreamsbride09- thanks so much for your review and information. It has really helped! You're pictures were beautiful! Congratulations!

  14. Here are my luggage tag STD's. I stole the idea from someone else on the forum. Thanks for the idea. Everyone loved them! I hope it comes out good. I had to fool around with it to meet the size criteria. std.ppt
