Are we weird?

Recommended Posts

We will also have some "acquaintences" coming to ours. What the heck!

we had the same attitude...pretty much anyone that wanted to come was invited.

 

of course this caused some problems with a few of the guests that did not behave properly but they just aren't invited to future events.

 

we had a reunion trip and pretty much everyone was invited...even my sisters friends, friends of friends, parent of friends of friends....

 

it was a good time.

Oh man, you guys are totally not weird. I don't have a ton of advice for the uninvited guest threads because the only people I don't want coming are people who will cause problems (like ex's ect)... other than that... I love meeting new people and its going to be a blast to have a big party down in Mexico.

 

We are going to do a pre-party thing too... It's going to be a tropical theme and we are going to call it "Cheeseburgers in Paradise" and do burgers and maragritas.

 

Keep the attitude of hospitality. :)

Haha, I'm so psyched for our pre-wedding party :) I added a very expensive "frozen concoction maker" to our registry (didn't think we'd get it, but I couldn't find the cheaper one my mom has) and it was one of the first things to get bought!!! (I'm thinking maybe a couple of friends went in on it).

 

That'll be a perfect excuse to use it!!!

I don't think you are weird at all. We're normally "the more the merrier" people as well, but weddings are just so expensive that I can't justify paying for people we don't know when I'm having to cut corners on other things. I would much rather use that money to help out the wedding party with hotels and attire than feed a complete stranger.

 

I'm in a slightly different boat than everyone else that my destination is actually in the country and so we are treating it as a traditional wedding (i.e, the guest list currently stands at 225 -- and that was with loads of cutting). If you didn't make a guest list that large, you really have no reason to be there -- and if I'm going to be increasing the number, there are plenty of people I would like to invite over a stranger.

 

Maybe I'm just a grinch! :)

No! You're not a grinch, and I 100% know where you're coming from!! Before we decided to do a DW we were planning a wedding here (hall booked and everything). Our guest list was at 260 people and there was no way to cut it down (my mom has 12 siblings and I have over 40 first cousins). With having a DW we kept the invite list the same but are only expecting 30-50 guests instead of the 180-200 we were expecting had we gotten married here. (and it's SIGNIFICANLY cheaper to get married in Mexico than in NY or NJ!). Basically, the people we never see are not going to go to Mexcio, but they would come if we got married here.

I wonder if that's part of the reason we don't mind so much lol

No Dez, you aren't a weird freak of nature! he he!

 

I think it's great that you guys are so open. We are the same way with our guests as well. I had two people from work who were going to PV anyway so I was like hey we are getting married in November....and before you knew it, they were booked and are going!

 

I think it's way cool! I think it's good if they are all the same type of people. You know? You can't have Suzie Q the floozie who is a man chaser mixed in with a bunch of couples...it might be kind of awkward.

Just make sure to play plenty of Jimmy Buffet and have kosher dill pickles.

    • Hi! That would be great. This is the only thing I need help with as of now. Finding one is my biggest roadblock so this is appreciated!
    • Hola!! How are you??? Let me find the contact that i used to have and I will send you the info.  Do you need something else? Warm regards   
    • I’m getting married in June 2019 and cannot find a Sikh priest to be able to perform my wedding ceremony. I’ve contacted a few that live in Mexico but they never respond. If anyone knows of any who’d be willing to perform the ceremony and one that is okay with interfaith marriages, I’d really appreciate it! 
    • Hi, my sister is getting married next year. She is very disappointed with the look of her tooth because they have a wide gap between her two front teeth. She always complains that parents have failed to correct this fault at the initial stage. Now, we don't have sufficient time to rectify the teeth because braces take at least two years for proper rectification. We have heard about 6 months braces from a friend of mine in Houston. Is this treatment effective? Is it possible to rectify the misaligned teeth in just six months? Please give some genuine replies and suggestions. Thanks in advance.
    • Hi,
      We are planning to celebrate our parents 25th wedding anniversary. We have been searching for a place to hold the party. Actually, we are planning to celebrate this as a wedding ceremony, as most of our families are there. We searched on the internet and found a place in Kingston. We are planning to book one of the resorts in Kingston to stay and celebrate our party. But, it's not been finalized yet. It's been a long time since we had met together and this could be a chance to increase our bond for love and togetherness.
      Folks, if you have any suggestions for the destinations, share your suggestions. After all, this is our parents second wedding ceremony and we must make it so grand. Hope you will share your ideas.Thanks in advance!
