      do you have anyway of contacting the bride that had that testimonial? Im just wondering how long she's been trying to contact the WP. I mean if she's been trying for 3 weeks too and hasnt heard back from her that's a REALLY bad sign. And you said this isnt the first time you didnt hear back from her for awhile, how many times is she going to dissappear between now and your wedding. I wouldnt want my wedding in her hands.

        Would it be possible to plan the wedding yourself? If you can do the research and do the bookings yourself maybe that could be an option?

        The deal you have at home seems pretty awesome. We're saving so much money by going away, but if I had the option of having it at home for the same price, I'd stay at home.

          I spoke to my travel agent, and unfortunately we would lose almost half of our $. We are going on the cruise regardless. Everyone that is going wants to go anyway. 2 couples are celebrating their 5 and 10 year anniversaries, it will be my best friends honeymoon since she is getting married the week before I am, and the rest are just excited to go away. We discussed putting it off, but since everyone wants to still go, we found the yacht club that is available the Saturday before we leave. We figured we would pay for the hotel for everyone that night, and pay for the limo to and from the cruise terminal too. This is the place we are considering.ClarksLanding
          I grew up at the Jersey shore and have lived there my entire life, up until a year ago. I wouldn't be crushed if I had to sacrifice Bermuda. Honestly, we only chose a destination wedding because we couldn't afford a $30,000 wedding at home, but now we are getting a deal, so the price is not a factor anymore. I just feel that everyone was expecting the Bermuda wedding, and my FI had his heart set on it. We are so torn as to what we should do.

            Estella - first of all IM SORRY!! Ugh so stressful. I was going to suggest what Danielle said about trying to contact that other bride to see what ended up happening with her wedding

            It sounds like you are leaning towards the Yacht club wedding which could end up being AMAZING! We had to cancel our mexico wedding due to swine flu and ended up planning our Santa Barbara wedding in 6 weeks and like u got amazing deals and it ended up being the BEST wedding - i think better than Mexico so if ur gut is telling u to do the Yacht club then go for it. I mean u still get to go on your cruise with 15 special friends and family

            Good luck hun - everything happens for a reason and i know its hard to think about it now but it will work out! Also YAY on being too small for ur dress :)

            Keep us posted!

              Aww...thanks! I love this site because everyone is so supportive. I feel like I get really great unbiased advice. It really helps during the decision making process.
              Yael, maybe our dress cursed us! After all, we BOTH have the Vernice, and we BOTH had cancellation drama! Buyers beware of the Vernice! LOL

                  I wouldn't worry about the dress too much. I got my dress at the ROTB so it was 12 when I really wear about a bridal 6. She took it in about 3 inches per side with no problem. Just make sure you go to talented seamstress.

                    I'm so sorry you're having so much trouble. I would be very suspicious of the WC, it seems strange that you can't contact her at all.

                    Silver lining....25 pounds!?! Awesome girl, even if it comes at some extra cost for your dress. Totally worth it.

                      i am so sorry to hear that. knowing myself i am way too much of a control freak, and with with your WP being MIA during such an important time i would probable take the safer route. Maybe have a mini destination wedding vow renewal at a later date for whoever wanted to take a trip down with you guys at a later time.
                      hope things look up, just remember wherever you have the ceremony it will still be beautiful because you and your future husband are going to have a beautiful life together either way!
