I tried your link to your web page and it didn't work! I'm glad you are less stressed and it looks like maybe people are coming around - I hope everything goes okay and your friend can make it - let me know when you fix your website and I'll check it out!

I looked at your website and I definitely don't think it sounds rude at all. I'm glad things are starting to get a bit less stressful and that your guests are being understanding!

I guess I'm late since it seems like the issue has been resolved. I too had the same problem with my guests. To the point where we wanted to elope..its amazing how you can get dissapointed by the "special" people in your life. We just decided to not provide the transportation to the port since it was becoming too stressful; unfortunately this included sailing guests as well. Our thank you to our sailing guests will be a shipboard credit; we're not sure about the amount so if anyone has suggestions feel free to share.

 

In the end we just feel that all that is important is that we get married! Getting frustrated about whoose coming has added stress that we dont need.

 

I hate to be the bearer of bad news but it will come up again. We've had people pay and request refunds later. Thought this was a great idea but some people have made it a nightmare. Sorry PrettyHazordous...looks like this has turned into my venting as well.

 

Happy planning and know that in the end you'll be in wedded bliss! I've told my FI that we will enjoy ourselves so much that we'll forget about who caused headaches.

I think i'd have a major issue with people inviting people I didn't invite to my wedding.  If you sent out formal invites with counts I'd only allow those who rsvpd with you to come.  You may want to make a point to let the people who told you they invited others to let them know that you dont' want strangers at your wedding and that you would like them to attend but if they choose not to you understand and wish them a great vacation.

A space to vent?!? Love it!

 

I just e-mailed our TA requesting that ppl be removed from our group booking upon viewing the list of guests that have put down a deposit. Why? Because we have no IDEA who they are! They just - poof! - popped up out of nowhere like Houdini.

 

I don't know if that was appropriate of me to do but at this point I've had enough. I couldn't even contact them if I wanted to - they're strangers! Although...I know these strangers have to be connected to one of our guests...

That's strange. Our TA sends us emails when people sign up so we have their contact information. Your TA could give you that information so that you could contact them.

 

My vent... one of our groom's men has yet to put in his deposit. He intends to pay when taxes come in (February).. Doesn't help a lot with planning when we plan to purchase clothing items and whatnot.

Thank you kks2012...the spreadsheet my TA provides doesn't have too much info. But you brought up a good point and I contacted her for phone numbers, etc.

 

As for your vent...what's this guy waiting for? Good grief! He's keeping you guys in limbo sad.gif. I really hope it works out and he comes through!

    • When it comes to your Wedding Clothes, it's pretty normal to be flooded by numerous choices that are available in the market like clothing style, pattern, fabric, and colors.  Absolutely, I liked this dress and I will never miss wearing this outfit for the wedding. Thank you for sharing this post.
    • Hi guys! Thank you for sharing the valuable information. Some students think, “How do I write my book review?” and are confused by this sort of task, and others are happy to do it and enjoy the writing process a lot. Such a difference in perception and attitudes is caused by the ambivalence of this task.
    • Hi All, I have just gotten in touch with a TA and we are in the process of getting quotes for our wedding in either DR or Mexico. Now she said something that I wasn't  aware of and I wonder how others handled this as I just can't believe that we are the only one in this situation. We feel we are asking our guests already a for a lot to come a long way to our wedding (our guests come from Canada and Germany) and there are a few that wouldn't want to miss it (like my partner's brother) but they just don't have a lot of money. Our budget doesn't allow us to chip in for flights and accommodation so we are basically asking everyone to save up money for our big event. Now we are planning the wedding at a resort that I know some of our guests can't (or don't want to) pay for. We were hoping to find a place where guests have the option to book themselves a cheaper hotel or an AirBnB nearby and only come to our wedding. Our TA told us that the resort might not allow that or only for a limited percentage of our guests. That is terrible news for us! I think that a good 50% of our guests will also stay at the resort for one, two or even three weeks but how can we 'force' other people to stay at the hotel of OUR choice?  I get that the resort would charge a fee for day guests and obviously we expect to pay for food and drinks but I didn't know that we would have to agree to a certain percentage of the guests staying at the resort. I don't feel we have control over that. How do others handle that?
