Wedding in 5 months, only 5 booked so far!!!???

Recommended Posts

don't you fret... I photographed a wedding just two weeks ago in the virgin islands and there were only 12 people there including me. :) that wedding was a blast. i love intimate weddings. it just means you get that much more time to spend with those that come

 

in the words of monty python... "always look on the bright side of life"

Don't worry... 5 months is still a lot of time ! 5 months before my wedding, I only had my parents, and my brother and his family booked. I had to wait until 4 months before to get the 3 next persons, and the last person to book did it... 2 weeks before... DH's parents only booked 1 month before !! And the bulk of my guests booked in March (my wedding was May 2nd).

 

So... no stress here...

My wedding date is 7 days after yours and I am dealing with the same thing. The only difference is that I have been engaged for 2 years in August and booked last July so people would have plenty of time to make monthly payments. My FI's mom keeps saying that she is going, but she hasn't even put down the deposit. We only have 4 people booked so far. My 2 MOH's and BM haven't even booked yet. I know they will, but it can be frustrating. I looked at FI and told him, I don't care who goes as long as we are there together.

I was just going to post about the same thing. The thing for us is we have 25 people booked (mostly my family, firedns and co-workers.) FI's parents booked and that's it! His brother is supposed to be our BM, Haven't heard from him. I tried e-mailing twice to get his measurements for the linen pants we are purchasing for him (NOTHING). It's very frustrating, we sent out our invites with RSVP of June 1st and no one on FI's side has responed (It's May 23rd). So some people will procrastinate, I am not going to worry though because all in all MOST of the people saying they are coming ARE. :)

Hi,

 

Glad I am not the only one, 4 booked so far out of mixture of friend & family who all said that they wanted to join us. I fully understand that for some people it is the cost. We had planned to get married in September 2009 but then we had family asking us to put it back due to another wedding they were attending.

 

Anyway, I have decided that it is our day and if people can join us that's great but if not, I am not going to let it upset me.

Most people tend to be procrastinators when it comes to RSVP for parties/weddings. There is still time and I know it may come across as "rude" when guests make other plans around the same time your wedding takes place. Enjoy the friends/family that are there for you on your big day. My approach with destination wedding is "can't make people come but we make sure those who attend have a good time".

I know it totally sucks when ppl commit and say they are coming and dont follow thru. Keep in mind that they may be last minute bookers in hopes that prices will go down. I know this is the reason some of our guests waited till the last minue and it drove me CRAZY, espciall b/c one of the ppl is my MOH.

Good luck with everythign

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
