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.

    The yacht club looks amazing. Your wedding would be gorgeous there. And you can still go on your cruise with your family and friends. I know you said your fi had his heart set on a Bermuda wedding, is there anything that he really wanted for his Bermuda wedding that you could maybe still do. Like a trash the dress for example. Let us know what you guys finally decide.

        Awww, thank you Danielle. I am going forward with the yacht club. Everyone has been so accommodating and great through this. When the vendors hear this awful story, they are willing to do whatever they can to help me out which is sooo nice. Now I know how all those poor swine brides felt. All of their weddings ended up being amazing, so I know mine will be too. The best part is now I get to celebrate with even more of our family and friends. My brother refused to go on the cruise, so he was going to miss my wedding originally. Now I don't have to worry about that anymore. Now I'm off to find a photographer, invitations, a DJ, and a florist!

              Hopefully I will! Lets see how it turns out after alterations. They had to take a handful of material from each boob, plus a handful off each side. It was crazy! I knew I lost weight, but didn't realize how much of a difference it made. I will post pics as soon as I go back for the next fitting. Hopefully I rock the dress like you did!

                    I'm glad to hear you have come to a decision, and you seem really happy about it! What a relief after all that crazy chaos for you. And its great to hear all your vendors are being so helpful! Thats so nice.

                    Don't worry about the dress, I'm a costume designer and the right seamstress can do wonders. A couple of years ago I altered my girlfriends dress from a sample size 8 (she got a smokin deal) to a four and I had a week! Don't worry!
