        it's ok!!! we are going to sort it out but i am definitely going to look for another venue. i just feel too uncomfortable doing any business with them.

        ana in the wedding department was great but i dont trust the on-site people.

         

        anyway, i don't want to bring negativity to the board for those who are in planning mode! you are going to have a great wedding there and all your guests will have a blast.

        eventually, i'm sure, my fiance and i will vacation there again since now we have like 60 weeks of vacation with the stupid timeshare thing.. ahha.. oh well.

         

        best of luck to you all!

         

        and if you know anything about working with destinationweddings.com  - let me know. i know they have threads on BDW.com but there's not a lot of info on it.

        that is my next step right now... .i'm hoping they will give me some new venue options to move forward with.

        if nothing compares - i'll be back here i guess!

        Aveery - I am so sorry that happened! I can't believe it. I can completely see why you would be so angry. I hope it all gets resolved and you do find the perfect place for your wedding. keep us posted.

          I'm doing DIY luminaries for our table decorations at the reception. I found a vendor on etsy that can make custom designs. Here's the link to her website. http://www.illumienate.com/

          I'm doing a mix of different sizes, including the table number lumies, some with love poems, some personalized with our names and wedding date and some with accent flowers and butterflies attached. We'll have 6-7 per table. I'm super excited about how all the soft lighting is going to look for our evening beach reception!

                  Hi Ladies,

                   

                  So my last post was from The Royal itself, on our site visit, all excited and in heaven at what a beautiful place it was and how magical and surreal my wedding would be.  I came back to the U.S. with the checklist completed, engagement photos taken, ready to send off my save-the-dates.....until....

                   

                  My sister announced she was pregnant!!!!

                   

                  OMG?!?!?  WTF?!?!?!  Now, I'm not the kind of bride who freaks about pregnant-bridesmaid-photos, or maternity-bridesmaid-dresses or any of that business.  The trouble is my wedding date is in her last trimester and there's NO WAY her doctor would allow her to travel. I researched, I googled, nope.  No way.  And I CANNOT imagine getting married without my only sister there.

                   

                  At first I was happy for her and calm and just said we'd reschedule.  Then I got angry and pissed and resorted to loud, obnoxious whining (Ryan did too, so we had a few shots and went out).  Then she had her doctors appointment and they heard the little heartbeat and I was all emotional and happy for this precious little life.  Now I'm back to being pissed...grrrr....I mean, we got ENGAGED in JUNE.  We even had a CONVERSATION about them holding off on baby attempts for a little bit until they crossed the "safe to travel zone."  How hard is it to hold off a few months?!?!  But they didn't.  

                   

                  It's 3:30AM.  I used to dream about my wedding to lull myself to sleep on insomniac nights like this.  Now its just depressing.

                   

                  I work in public schools so my wedding was to be on our Spring Break.  Now I have to try and reschedule for either earlier in February when we have a 4-day weekend or June/July, when Ryan and I were supposed to be on our World Tour.  And I'm terrified that even if we did reschedule, something will come up where she can't travel anyways....

                   

                  This.  SUCKS.

                      Jennifer!! So sorry to hear that!! That indeed does suck. Even after you told them to wait. That's a little inconsiderate. Hopefully it'll work out for the best. Definitely a hard situation to be in. I have my fingers crossed you can reschedule for an earlier time - but that means less time for you to get guests to book and all items finalized!

                       

                      Definitely keep us posted!!
