How do people decide to go to a DW 3 weeks prior to leaving?!?

Recommended Posts

Thanks everyone for agreeing that I'm not the crazy one here!

Jenn & Danielle, you girls are so nice. Don't worry about looking for extra stuff for me, I'll make it work somehow. But thank you!

I am with those who said to go with a 'scaled down version' of the OOT bags. It's too late to order everything anyway so just do what you can. Don't stress over it!

Omgosh 83 guests! Aesome! How many did you invite total?

Girl, your day is getting SO CLOSE! You must be so excited!!!!!!!!!!!

We invited a total of around 200 I think. I'm from a very large family and surprisingly a lot of them are coming (which I was not expecting but am so psyched about).

UGH!!! plus all of the money i spent on the OOT gift bags. WTF!!!! people are RUDE!!!!!!!!!
I'm so sorry! I agree, some people are just rude.

OMG Lizz!!! I'm going thorough the EXACT same thing right now as we speak!! But my problem is on BOTH ENDS. People that didn't rsvp, suddenly calling me for my TA's info (after it was already sent in the invite, reminder, and posted on our website) and people that did RSVP, but I'm finding out through the grapevine that they are not coming.......didn't even call me to let me know. I've cried and screamed plenty of times regarding this issue. I even have some people that haven't even gotten their passports yet! This has absolutely been the worst part of the wedding planning process by far!

That would irritate me as well! I think that you should remember that even if they did not RSVP they are still making YOUR wedding! The fact is that a DW cost them more money than they would spend on an AHW. They are there to support you! I would say that if they booked and paid to come to your wedding, you should make them a bag. I dont think that it matters if it is on the "down scale" but I think that they should def get one so they dont feel left out! Believe me, I know that there is a lot of planning in a DW, but remember the economy isnt great right now and I would appriciate those who even made an attempt to be there!

go to 5 below in Ardmore or by Circuit City on Rt1 and pick up stupid stuff for stupid people.

 

I know I will have the same thing because I know my family so I am prepared to tell them hahahaha Lawrence's family got the good stuff and you got what was left for being last minute.

 

Good luck

My aunt, my cousin and his girlfriend did this to me like 2 weeks before the wedding. I wanted to KILL them!!! Jerks.

 

I sent out OOT bags prior so they just didn't get one and luckily I had extra favors, but seriously, it's just such a crappy thing to do. They also never sent their RSVP cards back with either a yes, no... not even a "maybe" heads up. Actually I didn't even know they were coming until my dad casually mentioned something about their flight to me (he thought they told me). I don't know WTF is wrong with people!!

Don't get me wrong, I definitely appreciate the fact that they're coming, I'm just annoyed that some of them didn't tell us. I'm also annoyed at myself for not planning accordingly and getting extra stuff just in case. There is no way that I wouldn't give them OOT bags, I just am out of the stuff that is in everyone else's bags; so I'll have to go out and get stuff but oh well!

It's funny b/c I was just at Five Below in Ardmore last week buying stuff for the OOT bags for my 2 nephews. But it is only a few minutes away from me, so I can easily make another trip. Thanks for the suggestions!

    • 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.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
