Planning 101

Recommended Posts

I thought that planning a destination wedding would be easier and less stressful then planning something at home. Maybe I am just stressing myself out for no reason.

 

We've picked the country: Jamaica but not the resort yet. We are leaning towards the Riu Ocho Rios.

 

We've picked the time of year: early Nov 2009

 

Does all my stress go away after the resort is chosen or does it just get crazier from here? Am I just creating my own stress?

 

Advice for vetrans welcomed!

Honestly...I felt way better after I had my resort picked and most of all, my wedding date secured! I mean, yeah, there's still other things to stress about, like the dress and all that but I think location was definitely my biggest stress factor.

 

Good luck with everything!! wink.gif

I agree with Kathy - once the resort was picked and the date was secured, I felt a lot better. After you get your group rates from your travel agent, and have that all set in place, you'll feel even better! I was totally overwhelmed at first too, but honestly once the major things are out of the way it's not too bad. :) Happy planning!

I definitely felt the most stressed about picking the resort. After that the stress seems to come and go in waves. Just be sure to remember to delegate and not get too carried away. It's easy to get caught up in all the little details :)

Picking the resort and trying to get everything worked out to make sure our wedding was booked was definately the most stressful part. The part after that only becomes stressful if you decided you want specific details. Otherwise it's pretty much just go with the flow and as long as your paperwork is done you're as good as married!

Welcome to the forum!! I definitely think that choosing the resort and getting the date reserved is the most stressful thing because so many other things can't be done until you've done that. Once that's done, there is so much information here and so many ideas to help you plan. 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.
