Just admit I'm not important enough...

Recommended Posts

Hey Neen, at least they SENT the RSVP! Or they didn't check yes! on the RSVP and drop off the face of the earth! Yes, that happened.

It sucks, I know. And you are right to be a little bitchy. But on the bright side you are going to have a fabulous wedding with the ones that want to be there!!

Wow, I was glad to see this post and find out I am not alone! We invited most people we would have if we were having our wedding at home, and though our wedding is still 4 months away, we really haven't heard anything as far as RSVPs, except for the 25 confirmed and booked guests we have so far. I feel like maybe I made a mistake in not including reply cards, as I have everyone replying through our wedding web site.


I know we still have a lot of time, but it isn't like we will be sending out reminders or anything...I feel if people don't know if they are going at this point, they should respond. So, it kind of make you feel bad, since it doesn't seem like a DW is taken as seriously as the traditional kind.


I was also shocked to hear that some of you didn't receive gifts....I could maybe see it from those guests who came, but to receive no acknowledgement at all seems pretty bad! Yikes...I guess I wouldn't be surprised though, just based on the RSVP factor!

I think you hit the nail on the head with that one! Some people just don't "get" it! It seems like people would travel across the country for a wedding...but not to the caribbean!? Sorry...but I would much rather go to DR, or MX, or Jam. then to butt-f#$% nowhere Canada!! lol

Yea it really sucks when the people closest to you who you really want at your wedding end up not showing, but honestly, unless they were ghetto about it, I would not be offended. Unlike some of the previous posters, I would not take a huge offense if someone put their own vacation or house project, or schooling, or whatever else in their lives a priority over my wedding vacation. It is basically asking for $1000+ and one week out of them where for a traditional wedding it is one day and maybe a few dollars for a gift and a card; the difference in the level of commitment is huge. It hurts a bit sometimes, especially if you know you would have moved mountains for them, but the reality is sometimes we are NOT important enough and we just have to deal with it. Everyone has priorities and the way we weigh them are different. As many have said, you will have an awesome wedding no matter what with the people that did prioritize your wedding and the ones that didn't won't matter.

What a relief, and at the same time how sad is it to know that most of us DW brides are in the same boat. One of my 'good' friends cancelled. She had the guts to actually call me and tell me, but it was the excuse of 'lack of money' that really got me. Country club membership, leafs season tickets, 400,000 house (which mama in law put the deposit down for) and wedding paid for and you can't afford it...Riiiiighhht!


True colours come out, and as far as I'm concerned we'll come out ahead in the long run knowing who we REALLY can trust and who will be there for us in the long run. There have been some pleasant surprises with people we never would have thought would come. So it all works out in the end.

    • It’s been years... and I’m now searching for the same in Montego Bay or Negril. Did anyone ever have any luck finding? 
    • Hello, I'm new to this site. I got engaged already and get married by next year. I have some doubts regarding our dating destination. Hope you will help me. Thank You!
    • Hello everyone,
      Well, this upcoming valentine's day is special for me because I got engaged and planning to spend the day with my fiance. I'm planning to give her an ethical jumpsuit.

      Other than that I have been searching the internet for some nice discounted coupons and searched among my friends and found different sites. Now, we are looking forward to that wonderful day. We searched a lot and found out, Escape The City. Orangeville is a great place for a day trip or weekend gateway from Toronto.
      Theatre Orangeville is offering a weekend package that includes 2 tickets to a Live performance at the theatre, Premium Overnight Accommodations at Best Western Plus Orangeville Inn and Suites and $75 Downtown Wine and Dine Voucher which is valid at select Downtown restaurants, and Free Entry to the scenic Trails & Bridges of Island Lake.

      We are so excited and eagerly waiting for that day.
      If anyone has got any other suggestions for the venue, kindly share your thoughts/ideas.
      Thank You!
    • Please tell me, the best wedding venue in Saskatoon, SK.
    • Hey everyone! Like the others here, I'm interested in wedding reception, venue and all related steps & stuff. Starting with my first and the most important note is that we're international couple and we need to think of bilingual wedding. So the first thing we need to think of is whether it will be interpretation or 2 different venue coordinators, sermons and stuff? What is your experience, what could be the best and affordable solution? From googling the issue I've found this Interactio app team ( describing possible solution here  http://blog.interactio.io/case-study-weddings )Basically they offer to hold the venue in the main language, additionally providing simultaneous interpretation online to other quest's mobile phones. Looks like really easy and creative idea. What about the others? How did you solve this kind of obstacle? Any additional advises would be very welcomed here
