Wedding Planning + Economy = Unhappy Bride

Recommended Posts

Kathy, you are such a rock star! Thanks for posting your research. I am VERY nervous about flight prices, so I really appreciate you posting this helpful info. I also read something similar on Fareast. It said NOT to purchase tickets when the prices are sky high. Airlines will be foreced to lower prices if there is no demand at the higher price.


Are you posting your DIY on the DIY forum? I'd love to see what you are working on!

Thanks for reaching out ladies. I am feeling much better. My fiance has so far survived the downturn and he has not been laid off. That leaves us not enough time to plan for May still, but we are taking a trip to PV and Sayulita to check things out, great trade off! We leave in 7 days and will be there for 9 days:) Thanks again and happy planning!

Same here. Fewer people going, which is fine, but with a lot of weddings, its a fixed price plus a variable per head price. That means that it is so much more per head with less people. We have about 1/2 of what we thought we would get.

    • Peach looks better on tan skin. Red is a nice contrast against fair skin. 
    • How about installing a home web cam? And hire a house sitter to check up every week?
    • You can hire a graphic designer on Fiverr to create the wedding cards then just print them yourself. Another option so you can save money is to create the card how you want it on Canva and have them printed at a printing shop.
    • My wedding is coming soon, and I would like to know where I can find best wedding cards at affordable prices. I only find one store known as Lavenderpaperie.com where the cards are lovely and unique, But I want to know the other option name so that I can choose best wedding card. Please, if you have any suggestion on where to go, let me know. Thanks & Regards,

    • Hi Brides! I have a Wally Bag - 66" available - $90 + shipping (US only) The wally bag typically sells for $120-$180. I used this gown bag once to transport my dress from MN to Mexico for our wedding - IT WAS PERFECT!   I was actually able to pack 4 additional maxi dresses, and my husband's wedding attire, plus a few pairs of shoes and some jewelry. I packed the dress the night before we left, and just moments before we left, I zipped the bag and folded it - ready for travel. It comes up with a nice over-the-shoulder strap, making it really easy to carry through the airports. No issues on Delta with the bag as my carry-on - I chose to put in the overhead bin, but the flight attendant did offer to hang it in the closet for me. Once we got to the resort, about 10 hours after I first folded the bag, I unpacked the bag and my dress was perfect - no wrinkles! My dress was mostly lace and had a bit of a train, but it arrived perfectly!  Honestly, this is the best way to travel with your dress!
