    *sigh* same story, different bride! I know how you feel all too well. I too have a march deadline and gave people @ 2 FREAKIN YEARS to save their money and book. But nooooooo, they want to wait until the very last minute to make their deposit payments and complain about how "its too much money". PuhLEASE. I send out reminder emails every month as everyone was on a payment plan, but to no avail! You're not alone.

      Don't sweat it---people are still booking and my wedding is less than 2 weeks away. Does it throw a wrench in planning and OOT bags of course! but at this point I am past the point of caring.

      oh no I'm so sorry...we had a similar issue but I pretty much called every single person about 2 days before the deadline to put a bit of pressure on them

        Don't you just love family. They are all we have though, they will be there don't worry. I think they rather pay more for the tic than buy trip ins..

          I feel your pain...we sent out our STD's a month and half ago and included a pre-stamped reply post card. To date, we have only recived 20% of them back. Our deadline is March 14th.

          As much as it plucks you last nerve, you can't let it get to you....

            i know how you feel. i gave everyone 18 months to plan and here i am a little less than 4 months away and people are not doing anything. i would rather them say they are not coming than do this. it gets to the point where it is rude. for 2 weeks air jamaica prices were very low, i tried to get everyone to book then. of course some didn't and somehow it is my fault. now the price is almost $500 and i don't care anymore. i don't want to hear about it. i have been to 11 weddings in 2.5 years and i never did this to one of the couples. i want to go elope and forget these people.

              Good post! I thought it was just me and my crazy folks, lol!
              So far I have 20 people booked and going with us and a few that keep saying that they "want to go", but as far as I'm concerned, either they do or they don't. My booking deadline was December 1st, but 50% of my booked guests did so within the last month. I'm planning for thirty guests total and that includes my grandparents that live on the island.

                I just take a deep breath and say oh well. I have not even gotten to the point you girls are, have not sent std's yet, but I am already getting why don't you get married here and go to jamaica for your honeymoon. You know we have all heard the same story from our family and friends. Blah Blah Blah.

                I think when the times come for me, I will be disappointed but will look at it oh well there loss and be happy with those that do book.

                I do agree its very rude, I want to buy my oot bags contents but will end up either having to much stuff or not enough.

                Just enjoy your day with your new husband!
