Venting! Changed local 3rd time!

Recommended Posts

Ok! SO what a weekend I had. It started to become a joke that every 30 min my FI would ask me so what do you think now? ( In regards to planning the logistics for where and when the wedding was going to be) I got to the point I said forget it- we are eloping!

 

We are though. Instead we are changing our location for the DW AGAIN!!! This time I am not changing it no matter what!

 

This time the change was spurred because we are on a budget and it was becoming very real that St Thomas was more expensive than we thought. And it was not going to be easy to plan in the regards to where the ceremony and then the reception was - since it was looking like they were not on the same properties, we had to start dealing with transportation for guests and a more stable timeline....

 

I used to be a bridal coordinator and was getting frustrated because I wanted to have a DW so that I didn't have to plan all these details, I want to pack a suitcase, get there and get married! Then I am going to drink heavily!

 

But I have to say, after all that venting.... Kudo's to FI- he took the initiative to call the TA and talk to her, since I told him he was to make the decision as to the resort and the local.... and I have to say he did good since I was looking at Dreams way back in December.

 

I guess you should always go with your gut.. Now I just feel like an ass telling everyone we changed AGAIN- and my web site has said Mexico, St Thomas and now Punta Cana!! My poor guests are all confused!

Don't worry- you're not alone! Many of us have been through the same thing...

 

I started out Jamaica, then Cancun, and got married in Cabo!

well as long as no one has booked their tickets, change away!

 

i didn't even bother telling anyone our location (because we did go back and forth) until i officially booked things and started sending out STD's.

I defitenly know what you are going through! We went back and forth so many times (well, really me,lol. my FI was okay wherever we went)

 

I started with Jamaica (my date was booked for all the resorts I wanted, and even one I had secured, was given away. frown.gif)

 

Then we went to St Thomas. (only to come to the same conclusion as you, it would be too damn expensive for us and the guests).

 

Then I did what you did, I told my FI to pick, b/c I was becoming a bit stressed about the whole situation! So that is how we ended up in Punta Cana! cheer2.gif Once I saw pictures of the beach, I was sold!

This is what I wish I did, because now our credibility is trash and even my father and mother are trying to change our mind again to having a wedding on the coast of Maine... UGH!

Good to know I have a "twin" out there! Such a shame about St Thomas because we loved it there. But we can't go into debt over this wedding.
