May 2009 Brides

Recommended Posts

so I went from a wedding of 42 to a wedding of maybe 18. I have cried the entire day. Pretty much besides myself-fiance doesn't get it-I keep telling him that i have wanted this wedding since I was a child and now it might not happen because of this flu situation. I literally have hired a DJ, a photographer, a videogapher-and will now only have 18 people if i am lucky. UGH. I really dont know what to do now

Btw you must be mad letting MIL change your destination - there again I don't like the easy life and would have stuck to original plans to just piss mine off lol
It was a HUGE moment of "let's just keep the peace" Not that I am not looking forward to the mexico wedding...it just wasn't what I originally envisioned.

Thanks so much ladies for your support. Have tried to be positive through this whole thing and I kinda feel like kitty from that 70's show "oh everything is swell" everytime something crappy happens...and I just cracked...
Feeling a bit better. We will be married somewhere and hopefully my dress will not be clumped up all around my waist!

Hang in there!
I am so sorry this is happening to you. I wish people would do some research before they panic. Jax was right..something like 36000-40000 people die of the regular flu every year...there is absolutely no reason to panic and you have to be in CLOSE contact to get it.
I'm so sorry...I don't think anyone knows how much of ourselves we put into these events.

MAY BRIDES UNITE AGAINST SWINE FLU!!!!!!

 

I really hope that i dont hear anymore people backing out of weddings because of this darn flu!! I cannot believe what is happening ... BLKATZ.. im thinking about u !!! just know that those 18 guests that do show up... are showing up beacuse they really really care about you and ur FI... it may seem like a terrible tragedy (i would look at it like that too) but keep your head up and make the best out of the situation... those people are coming for a reason and that reason is YOU and FI!!!! ... they love you we love you and you will have a wonderful wedding!!

 

Now, to all those people cancelling flights and trips, GROW UP!!!!!

i am SO sorry this has happened to you ... i can't believe so many of your guests have backed out. but your wedding WILL happen, you will still be a beautiful bride, you'll still have amazing photos ... it will just be a smaller crowd. when all this blows over and you return home happily married (and perfectly HEALTHY) the people who panicked and canceled last minute will be positively kicking themselves.

all the best to you, your FI, and the family and friends who are sticking by you through all of this. grouphug.gif

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
    • Thanks! I had it printed out. Very useful!!
