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.

    • Hello Everyone, I am new here, I heard about this site from a friend of mine that had a destination wedding back in 2012 which was beautiful.  I am leaning towards the DR if I find a place that has all that I am looking for if not Mexico is another great option. Thinking of May 2020 if that is enough time to plan this! I like modern looks, all inclusive for sure.  I definitely want the beach very very close to the pools and rooms, a swim up bar is a must.  I really like the idea of the swim ups in the rooms if possible.  I am going to have friends that bring their kids so it can't be adult only.  I do want to get married on the beach which seems like most of the all inclusive resorts offer. My friend got married at the SENSATORI AZUL BEACH RESORT RIVIERA MAYA and it had all I would want in a resort if anyone has stayed there and has any advice. Thanks for all the help ahead of time.   M&B
    • @JessicaCV - How was your wedding experience? We're getting married there in November - Would love to pick your brain about your experience and the planning process! - Kian
    • They forgot the wedding cake topper   Okay, so no big deal - just a once in a lifetime moment. The upsetting part is the wedding coordinator, Dionne, did not seem at all concerned about the mistake. The only reason we got an apology was because we happened to run into her the night before we left. Our wedding was on Saturday we left Wednesday morning. We were told we could escalate our concern to Riu corporate, the wedding coordinator doesn’t have a supervisor on site. Riu corporate said they did their best and apologized. Brides, go to Jamaica, get married, but do yourself a favor and do not go to a Riu resort, especially not Riu Negril. I am certain there are other resorts that would have been in touch immediately and tried to make up for their mistake. Not Riu.
