Destination Wedding Newbie...Please help!

Recommended Posts

Hi, my name is Mandy. I'm getting married December 1, 2009 in Jamaica. Anyone with any helpful information on how to properly plan a destination wedding, please let me know. I'm having a very hard time making plans that would work for almost everyone I am inviting. People seem to tell me that everything I want to do, doesn't work for them. Shouldn't this day be about me?

Congratulations! You will find a lot of useful information on this forum!

 

Unfortunately, it is difficult to make everyone happy when planning a destination wedding. A number of my family and friends are not happy that I'm having a destination wedding, and are not/cannot come. As you explore BDW you will see a number of threads in the venting section that discuss this issue. You have to do what will make you happy and, maybe, those who are most important to you to be there. Best of luck!

Welcome to the forum Mandy! Just do what's best for you and your future hubby, and try to let the other stuff roll off your back. People will always have opinions about your wedding, whether it is a destination or not. Good luck!

Welcome to the forum Mandy!

 

When planning a wedding (any wedding) there will always be at least one person who won't be happy with what you plan. Your wedding should be about you, your FH and the people in your lives that you care for the most. Best of luck to you!

Congrats and welcome, Mandy!

 

As others have mentioned, you shouldn't try to please everybody. (It's really impossible to do so, and will only cause you unneeded/unwanted stress). This is your big day, and you should plan it in a way that makes you and your fiance happy. You want to be able to look back on it after it's over and be happy and at peace that it was a very memorable and fun time for you both as you started your new life together.

 

Best wishes,

Tod

Congratulations Mandy! I know how hard it is to resist the temptation to try to please your friends, family and guests. However, the only people who really have to be happy are you and your future husband. You only get one day to be the star of your own show-your wedding day. This is the day that all eyes are on you. It should be your decision how, when and where your guests get the privilege to see you exchange vows with your love. Good luck and remember to stay true to yourself.

I say shop around for the best prices and they will send you different packages with pictures and honestly you should go with the one that fits you budget as well as your tast because if you are happy then all of the people who really really really care about you will also be happy. Follow your gut instinct and have fun with it.
