Thanks Sara! I was planning on sending an email to all 3 but I wanted to talk to Eric first and lay out the options before I did anything. I should have known everything was going way too smoothly...something had to eff up!!

I would be so upset with your friend for putting you in this situation!!!

 

And I agree with Michelle.. why should Erik have to pay more $$ just because 2 ppl want to hook up?!?!?

 

The realistic and more reasonable part of me though.. agrees with the other suggestions. Either all three should split the cost someway or maybe you can suppliment part of Erik's cost as payment for the photography.

 

Either way, good luck!!!! Your friend really needs to hear how much this is stressing you out and how this is not the right thing to do!!

That would leave my niece out in the cold, except now her brother (who is in Iraq) wasn't going to go and now he is, so she is going to share a room with him. I looked into the 3 in a room but the room was 2 double beds and I'm not paying all that money to share a room AND a double bed besides.
I want to pay my down payment and my sister is still hemming and hawing about whether her husband is going to go or not. If that happens, then I'm left out in the cold. My niece said I can bring a friend, but I don't want to bring someone to my niece's wedding that she doesn't know. I'm thinking about getting my own room, but it's about $250 more. I really don't want to share a room with my sister because I want to party with my niece and have a good time. My sister is the type that gets up at 6 a.m. and wants everyone to go for a walk on the beach.
Pay the extra cash and then she can do what she likes and you can party till the cows come home lol it'll be worth the extra cash not to have to get up at 6am!! I mean christ thats the middle of the night when you're on hols lol

Well...the latest & greatest is that Eric is not answering my calls or emails. I had my MOH (who is really tight with him) call & find out what the hell is going on! Well...he gat mad at her & told her was cancelling & that was it...end of discussion. So there is something definitely fishy going on!! I will have to contact Angela...maybe she knows what's going on!? I had a little cry on my way home from work & I feel a bit better now! It's just so frustrating...especially since he was supposed to be my photographer!!

Thanks kaiko!! It definitely sucks!! I thought things were going so smoothly!!

 

Now...I just received another email, this one from Chris saying he is cancelling. He didn't realize how much money it was going to cost!!! Come on...you should have figured this out BEFORE you booked!! Dumbass!

That is 3 people throwing away their deposits...$450 total! Geesh.

I'm to the point...I don't even care anymore. My biggest concern is getting a photographer with a zero budget for it!

Sorry you are going through all this crap! Stupid people! Maybe somehow you will find some extra money and be able to find someone like my photographer that will give you a discounted price.

Thanks Kat...people to suck!! Except for all my BDW friends!! I wish all of you could come to my wedding instead of my "real life" friends!! lol

 

I had a photographer lined up a couple months ago...she was offering a fantastic deal - $1500 for her & an asst...with no travel expenses & a pre-wedding shoot as well. But honestly with the house we just can't afford it. And FI is not willing to pay that much for "some pictures". He is so not into the wedding stuff. Just wants to go on vaca & get hitched in the process. Oh my....

people just suck. so sorry you're dealing with this crap so close to your wedding.

 

sounds like your close friend eric is just really pissed off that this happened to him, and can you blame him? he probably was really excited to go and it was ripped out from under him! if he's not answering calls, i'd send him a long email saying how sorry you are this happened and you would still really love for him to be there. let him know his friendship is important to you, and that you would love to try to work something out.

 

are you working with a travel agent? is there any way the other two "lost deposits" can just be applied to eric's room?? LOL probably not, but didn't you say it was like $400 worth of deposits on the room? that's a nice little chunk of the cost already paid! maybe he could stay fewer days?

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
    • I think you should approach the dentist. That would be the best idea as of now.
