wedding in 6 months?

Recommended Posts

Hey all.

 

My guy and I decided on a destination wedding when we became engaged a few weeks ago. We are bringing along just our brothers and their girlfriends as well as two close friends. We have decided on Cuba and have narrowed it down to two resorts. We are hoping to book something in October or November for our January or February 2009 wedding. Are we crazy?

 

Anyone else have to deal with disappointing people who assumed they would be invited but won't be?

 

Am I crazy thinking that I can find a dress in October for a late January wedding? I would go shopping now, but I want to book first.

 

I have been a lurker for awhile and I want to thank you for all the help I have received thus far.

Congratulations and welcome to the forum. I don't think you should have a problem finding a dress in October for January. Good luck.

Welcome!

 

You can throw a wedding in a week if you want to. It all just depends on how detailed you want everything to be and how flexible you can be.

 

Good luck and happy planning! We'll be here to help if you need it!

You aren't crazy! We got engaged in May, are getting married in January and I am almost completely done with everything and it's August 1st (I just like to plan and get things done early) The trickiest part is booking people in time, but if you are only having a few people it shouldn't be that difficult. As far as people being sad about not being invited, for us it was very important to have our parents, siblings, and a few close friends (we're having about 20 guests) There were a few people who tried to invite themselves but we knipped it in the butt right away, and told them that this is a private wedding, and that we will be having a big Colorado AHR when we return. If you choose January, you should Join our January Brides thread (we'll keep you right on track hehe) http://bestdestinationwedding.com/forum/t21722

The funny thing about our wedding is that we invited my FI's best friend and he can't make it so he decided to give his invitation to someone else! What nerve. I have had many people make comments about not being invited and we decided to have an AHR in October.
