How is everyone already busy a year away?

Recommended Posts

Did anyone else have this problem?

 

We have not picked a location or a date, just aiming for the Caribbean some time between spring and fall semesters next year.

 

Working backward, late August, my fiance goes back to school. Early and mid August are out for my family because of religious holidays (they are observant, no getting around it). Today my FMIL calls me in a panic saying her husband, my FFIL, cannot do any of June or July, and my FSIL's graduation is mid-May.

 

What's a DW couple to do?? How much censored.gif lead time can you give people?? How is a year not enough?

We gave everyone a years notice b/c alot of things come up and alot of people do have plans that far in advance (big trips, other weddings etc). The sooner you pick a date and place, the more people you will most likely have come. Good luck :)

We did a year notice and there are people that have other obligations but its ur day just book it and if someone cant make it oh well. People can change plans and thats rediculous that they cant do anything next year for 2 months straight. Just pick ur time thats convient for you or else youll never get married. I went through the same thing and just booked to have the wedding or else we wouldnt of gotten married with everyones suggestions and all. Keep ur head up it will work out

setting a date is SOOO stressful. You will NEVER find a perfect date that works for everyone. It's a shame but just find a general few weeks most people can work with and narrow it down from there. The more time you give the better.

Good luck!

People will still flake out on your DW even if you gave them 10 years in advance. Do what you and FI want and if people really want to go and they can, they will. I'd still be trying to figure out what month/day/year to get hitched if I listened to my friends/family. Just my two cents.

    • Hi Brides! I have a Wally Bag - 66" available - $90 + shipping (US only) The wally bag typically sells for $120-$180. I used this gown bag once to transport my dress from MN to Mexico for our wedding - IT WAS PERFECT!   I was actually able to pack 4 additional maxi dresses, and my husband's wedding attire, plus a few pairs of shoes and some jewelry. I packed the dress the night before we left, and just moments before we left, I zipped the bag and folded it - ready for travel. It comes up with a nice over-the-shoulder strap, making it really easy to carry through the airports. No issues on Delta with the bag as my carry-on - I chose to put in the overhead bin, but the flight attendant did offer to hang it in the closet for me. Once we got to the resort, about 10 hours after I first folded the bag, I unpacked the bag and my dress was perfect - no wrinkles! My dress was mostly lace and had a bit of a train, but it arrived perfectly!  Honestly, this is the best way to travel with your dress! 
    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • 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.
