Am i wrong for planning a Destination Wedding in 8 months?

Recommended Posts

Everyone is complaining about going to Jamaica and spending money, getting a passport etc...I feel like I didnt want a traditional wedding because didn't want to spend all that money..so why should I? I told everyone if u can come it will be nice, but if u can't it's ok. People are trying to make me feel bad..am I wrong for planningit in 8 months?

NO! Don't take crap from anyone! If you've made it clear you'll understand if they can't join you then that's the best you can do.

 

Sorry - can you tell I'm sick of taking crap from would-be guests smile105.gif

 

Honestly, 8 months is plenty of time and if money/vacation time is an issue, then folks can just graciously decline attending. Please don't let them stress you out or make you feel bad or guilty. It's your wedding, you should do what makes you happy :)

no i dont think you are wrong...like for some people ya it may not be enough time to save the money for the trip...but really the people that seriously want to be there will find a way....the people that want to just complain will find a reason even if it was two years away....do what makes you and FI happy and pick a wedding date that you really want and the people that matter will be there for you im sure :)

8 months is plenty of time and $800 is not a bad price at all. Ours is quite a bit higher than that.

 

As long as you understand that not everyone will come, than do what you want. Even though people are complaining, you might be surprised how many of them come. People will really surprise (in a good or bad way) when planning and destination wedding, I thinkg most of the brides on here can vouch for that.

 

Bottom line is do what makes you and your FI happy and don't worry about everyone else!

Wow, $800 is a fantastic price!! Anyhoo, don't feel bad about planning it in 8 months. Mine is six months to the day after my engagement, so yeah. I understand that for some people it may be difficult to afford but for those that matter, it should be ok.

 

Good luck!

    • 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.
