What my husband would/wound't change

Recommended Posts

Here is his top of mind three things I would definitely do and three that didn't matter so much (he didn't totally follow directions, but this is exactly what he said)...


Definitely do:

1) Firedancers

2) Waiting to see my bride walk down the aisle was one of my favorite memories

3) Big on the entertainment vs. other things like the food and flowers - I remember fireworks and firedancers, but not the food and I'm usually very picky about food. If you're thinking of spending $600 more in food vs. getting firedancers, I'd go for the firedancers

4) go barefoot on the beach - go casual all the way - if your guests wear shorts, all the better. It's so hot there no matter what you do, you want your guests to feel like they're on vacation

5) go a few days before so you can spend time with people and get in a groove. At least two nights before.


Didn't matter so much/would do differently:

1) Stay a day or two later to spend time with people (we left on Sunday at 1 and our wedding was on Saturday).


I don't know - it went really well - there's not much that I can think of that I would change.


Ladies - what about your husbands?

steve would probably:


NOT change:

  • seeing me walk down the aisle
  • all the events we had planned (welcome dinner etc.)
  • having our meals with our guests (breakfast, lunch by the pool, dinner)


  • he would probably skip out on deep sea fishing. a few friends were hung over and got seasick and it was alot of $$ and i think he would have preferred to surf.
  • not taken the dancing class i made him do. the instructor was kooky and steve absolutely would not do the dance she horeographed for us (even though it was over the top)

i will ask my husband tomorrow. hes already asleep.


as we were planning everything i knew he would have been totally fine with just going to vegas and skipping the bigger wedding with everyone in palm springs. during the reception we were dancing and he looked at me and said "im so glad you made me do this." it was really funny. i know he wouldnt change doing the bigger wedding with friends and family. but i will ask him what he would/wouldnt change about that day/wedding.

My husby said "I wouldn't change much of anything"


He said he would have changed some of the music by our DJ (to have more slow songs)


He would definitely do again:

Zip Line (shoot I still never did a thread on this!)

Cabo Surf Hotel

La Panga

he would let me do all the work again (jk! jk!)


No really, I think he was just happy to relax and chill out with his friends, and not have to worry about a thing.

    • Hi All, I have just gotten in touch with a TA and we are in the process of getting quotes for our wedding in either DR or Mexico. Now she said something that I wasn't  aware of and I wonder how others handled this as I just can't believe that we are the only one in this situation. We feel we are asking our guests already a for a lot to come a long way to our wedding (our guests come from Canada and Germany) and there are a few that wouldn't want to miss it (like my partner's brother) but they just don't have a lot of money. Our budget doesn't allow us to chip in for flights and accommodation so we are basically asking everyone to save up money for our big event. Now we are planning the wedding at a resort that I know some of our guests can't (or don't want to) pay for. We were hoping to find a place where guests have the option to book themselves a cheaper hotel or an AirBnB nearby and only come to our wedding. Our TA told us that the resort might not allow that or only for a limited percentage of our guests. That is terrible news for us! I think that a good 50% of our guests will also stay at the resort for one, two or even three weeks but how can we 'force' other people to stay at the hotel of OUR choice?  I get that the resort would charge a fee for day guests and obviously we expect to pay for food and drinks but I didn't know that we would have to agree to a certain percentage of the guests staying at the resort. I don't feel we have control over that. How do others handle that?
    • Getting married in 10/2020, anyone had a recent wedding here? Asking for some help
    • Hi, I know prices change year to year- Anyone have 2019 or possibly 2020 prices? 
    • My husband and I was married 18 years ago. My husband hates dressing up and truly I had no idea to that he feels embarrassed in dress attire. I told him the only way I would marry him was in tux jacket and pants shirt. Well he wore it but after wedding hyperventilating and nearly passed out. He felt totally humiliated and had horrible memories of our wedding. He has never allowed me to show our wedding photos to anyone and simply it ruined the wedding and has caused tremendous amount of issues over the years due to the fact I made him wear it. He now wants to redo the wedding to wash out our wedding memories and create new. Wants briadsmaid groomsmen everything. He wished he had simply went against my will wore something different. So wants to redo everything included everyone and what they wore but change what he wore. Me dressed in my original wedding dress. I so wish I had never posed him into a suit on our wedding day.its been 18 year nightmare.  He simply wishes to completely recreate a memory. My question is it okay to completely redo our wedding exactly the way it was except what he wears? This has been 18 years of hell he xant get over it. He cant even stand to look at photos and we have never watched the video. Thank you all Sarah
