Guests who forget this is YOUR wedding, not theirs...

Recommended Posts

bcbride....wow, really? jellyfish?

You know what is getting to me the most is that I'm not the kind of person to put up with anyone's BS. I'm a nurse (almost, done with school in May) and have been thick skinned all my life. I don't know why all of a sudden I'm letting peoples' opinions get to me. Hopefully it will get easier as time goes by (only been engaged 1 month). It's very comforting to know I'm not the only one with difficult/selfish people in my life. I honestly think a lot of them are jealous that they had their wedding/reception in some boring church/banquet hall, while all of us are going to be in paradise for ours! Here's to all of us who have stepped out of the box! Cheers!

LOL! The jellyfish... I have heard so much but that tops the list! I used to defend "why are you having it in Mexico when you can have it here?" with "it is too expensive here(NY)", but then one of my "friends" said, "well of course it is cheaper for you when you are passing the cost on to the guests!" OH NO SHE DIDN"T!!!!!! I could not believe that! Now I am not even justifying it, I am so sick of people complaining. Come if you want, if you don't stay home!!!

LOL, I might have had to tell that person that they just suck at life. Come on, who says something like that? Lets keep this thread going, I'm sure we will all get a good laugh at the ridiculous things people have to say about destination weddings...

In fact when I told a few people it was going to be Mexico, they said "oh, well we will have to get you to change your mind about that." Seriously, they have all had their weddings (some of them 2 weddings, lol) and done what they wanted, now it's our turn. Maybe I just need to drastically cut my guest list, haha
I often wonder if it would be more fun with a smaller group anyway! :) You all will have a great time no matter who does and does not make it to Mexico! It's your dream, it's your life. Don't let anyone bring you down! In my opinion, it's their loss!

Oh I totally feel for you!! We have had some guests voice their opinions on the cost, location and even said "why don't you just have the whole thing at home" (because we are having an AHR). At first I really let the comments eat away at me, and even went so far as to change the location to make it less costly for our guests. I'm now starting to think that you can't please everyone, and sadly some people will comlpain no matter what you decide - so in that case it sucks to be them because everyone else will be having a blast while they mope (or don't come at all).

Don't worry about the whiners and complainers. Let them stay home if they prefer not to travel so far. It's your wedding don't stress about it. Everyone will have something to say.

Yeah, anyone who complains about $580 AI vacation for 5 days really has no sense of how much these things cost.

 

I will not tolerate complainers at my wedding. My sentiment is unless they are the groom, their presence is not a necessity. If they come, I don't want to hear a peep of whining about it. If they can't accomplish that, they should STAY HOME and save me the headache and the money.

 

Speaking of which, I would have put that person in their place who said that the bridegroom is passing the cost onto the guest; that is absolutely OBNOXIOUS

    • Good afternoon, I wanted to inquire if anyone has or knows someone who got married at this resort. How was it? How are the coordinators? Packages that were chosen. Any help would be greatly appreciated.   Thanks.
    • Hi all! I know this is an old thread... but just in case there are other destination wedding brides out there with the same question, I thought I would answer! My guy and I live in Texas and just got our marriage license (yay!). We are getting married in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. The Dallas County clerk informed us that we can get our marriage license in Texas, bring it and a Texas-registered officiant to Mexico, have the ceremony in Mexico, then bring the marriage license back to Texas to file and it will be LEGAL in the US.  In  other words, we can legally get married in Mexico using our Texas marriage license and officiant (who is a family friend), then file the paperwork when we get home. Where it says 'county in which ceremony was performed' on the license, we just put in Playa del Carmen, Mexico and bam! Married :) I do not know if this is true for other states, but it is CONFIRMED for Texas! I suggest asking the clerk when you register for your marriage license. I am overjoyed that we can have a US-legal marriage in Mexico so our wedding date on our license will be the actual day! NO blood tests, or getting married before or after the trip required!  
    • Every Bride spends a lot of time researching and worrying about her perfect wedding dress. While many Indian brides choose the traditional red colour for their bridal gown, a few of them find some different colours to wear on their special day. Here is a description of how to choose an Indian wedding dress that suits your skin tone. 1) Fair complexion: You can choose any shade of blue or bright shades of pink and red. In the shades of blue- select scuba blue or royal blue. Among other colours this season, you can pick up your dress in tangerine.   2) Wheatish complexion Just select those colours which bring out the warmth in your complexion. Some of the best options for you are tangy orange, saffron yellow, vibrant shades of red, mint green and hot pink.   3) Dusky complexion: If you have an olive skin tone, then you can pull off any rich and dark colour quite well. So, the colours like classic blue, marsala, burnt orange and brick red are just perfect for you. Also the metallic silver, gold and bronze will even flatter your face pretty well
    • I will be using the hPage Website Builder to create a free website for our wedding. I am planning to post wedding updates, wedding photos, wedding reminders, and wedding articles regarding our upcoming marriage there. For RSVP, I am using Facebook events since almost all we invited have facebook and it would be easier to get their "yes" or "no" confirmation there. In case anyone is interested as well here's their site: hPage Website Builder - https://www.hpage.com
