We are using DJ all music and out Miami WC sent us this whole packet/form to fill out for the DJ and we have to submit 45 days before wedding. You put all info for introducing bridesmaids and groomsmen, how we want to be announced, our first dance, songs during cake cutting, etc. who is doing toasts and when, music during dinner and music during reception. Did the WC send you a packet for your DJ?
If you are having trouble emailing your Miami WC maybe calling would help. Before I had another Miami WC and she wouldn't respond to my emails and I called her and very first ring she answered. I had so many questions that I was able to quickly ask instead of waiting weeks for answers. So that might be helpful of you're stressing.
You're wedding is coming up fast! So excited for you
So glad you mentioned the form for the DJ. I got one from the Miami WC a couple of months ago and had forgotten all about it. I'll start filling it out asap and send it in next week.
My new WC (last one left and I was never told) seems more responsive. She is new to Karisma and seems like she is trying to be helpful. I definitely find that it is easier to get answers by phone and then confirm with email.
Anyone frustrated by guests that swore they were coming and then never booked or said anything? The best man told my FI he wasn't coming by text message. My FI waited two weeks and then called him and he still hasn't called back. My FI's mom is acting strange and has not booked her airfare (swears she will every week) and has only put $100 towards her room. Meanwhile, she has been renting cars and traveling every weekend. My poor FI is upset that when he brings up the wedding, she changes the subject. I asked him to just buy her ticket but he refuses because she is acting like this wedding is not a priority.ent
I intentionally did not bring up the wedding to anyone once I sent the STDs because I didn't want anyone to feel pressured. I understand it is a big financial commitment. They would bring it up and confirm they were coming or even RSVPed on our website! Well, the room block deadline was last Friday and a number of them never reserved. On a positive note, people I never expected to come have reserved and even paid in full!
We have 54 reserved guests, far more than I anticipated. So, I am still pleasantly surprised.
Hi Lolita2014, Some of my relatives have been very difficult also. I have one cousin who didn't make her final room payment until the day after the deadline and then just a few days ago (5 weeks before the wedding!!!) told me she wants to bring a boyfriend. Of course, it's someone no one else in the family knows or has met!!!
It is really too bad about your FI's Mom. If you can afford to pay for her to come, I would definitely offer to pay. It means a lot to have close family attend but sometimes you just have to be happy with the people who have made the effort and who can attend.
You showed much more restraint than I did. Last January, I called and/or emailed everyone who had said they wanted to attend but had not put down a deposit and asked that they send in a deposit asap. My problem was that the resort was selling out of rooms for my wedding weekend and if they didn't/couldn't commit, then there would not be any more rooms. I was very careful to say that we truly understand if people have other commitments or if they do not have the funds and that we would love them whether or not they come to Mexico. That pushed a few people into saying No and I was definitely OK with that answer.
At 54 people, that a fairly large destination wedding. You are very blessed to have so many people in your life who can be with you on your special day.
