Jamaica wedding blues
Posted 12 January 2009 - 04:13 PM
If it makes you feel any better, I can come and fill a seat! I'd jump all over the chance to go back to Jamaica.
One couple we are very good friends with didn't come to our wedding, i was a bit choked. But, another couple did come then made me feel guilty cause they had to spend so much money. I've BTDT, it sucks. In the end though, our wedding turned out great and having a small group made it easier to give out good OOT bags, spend time with each guest, organize etc.

In the end it was their loss and honestly it ended up being great because with a small group of only 12 we had a blast! I wish they had been there and even feel bad when those of us that were there talk about the stories but as long as you and your soon to be hubbies are there, that's all that matters!

I know I'll get over the hurt, but right now its so stressful. I would never be this flaky for my friends and fam.

Not only is his family not coming, which i have expressed my extreme disappointment to them, they haven't offered to help with anything! no money no nothing! They better give us a big wedding present, sorry that is a little selfish on my end, but come on! We have told them so many times, no presents just come to the wedding!

All we can do is enjoy it in the best way. One thing is for sure, you and your future hubby will be there, and you will have eachother to share your beautiful day. It is all about the two of you anyway. It's just so shameful how some people can be.
I have a friend who swears she can't afford it yet, she's been all over the world in the past year. She's been to about 4 different countries in 2008 alone. Somehow, Jamaica is just too expensive, but South Africa is not? Ha!
Oh and I can't tell how many people say, "Oh if only you had chosen Turks and Caicos..." What does that mean? If I did choose another island, your so-called "broke" butt would miraculously come up with the money to attend?
People are FULL of it.
Thank goodness for this forum. I'd have nowhere else to vent (well, aside from at home with the FI).
