Changed my wedding date

Recommended Posts

I have really been on top of the whole travel agent thing.. even going to Liberty Travel 2x just HOPING they'd have prices out. Well last week I just happened to go into the Liberty Travel in my mall and what came next... UGHHHH! The TA was brutally honest and said to switch my wedding date from the weekend of 2/14 because it's one of the most heavily traveled weekends all year. I knew it'd be bad but not this bad. She said if I want to make sure people will make it, I'd have to book their flights ASAP (within the week). Mind you I just recently sent out the last of my STDs and planning on starting my invites in 2-3 months or so. She said that the flights will be booking super early. I nearly had a panic attack sitting in front of her lol She gave me the numbers to all of the airlines but it still wouldn't guarantee anything. She also priced out that weekend and flights alone from NY/NJ were $1000. So......................

 

I'm now getting married on February 28, 2009.. two weeks later. After talking to my WC she reassured me it was ok to switch. The other very important person was Jean-Marcus (my photog) and he was so great and understanding and lucky for me, he'll be down there already shooting a wedding the week before mine! My DJ (Carlos from Mannia) was also able to switch for me without a problem.

 

Everything's now coming together. I feel relieved but for a few days I thought I was gonna have a heart attack lol

I had to do the same thing, my original date was supposed to be 02/23, but the prices were still inflated for V-day, so we moved to a less expensive month altogether. I'da been married for 2 months already!

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
