Biggest Destination Wedding Stress factor - what's yours?

Recommended Posts

I feel like my stressors are changing daily now that I am down to the wire. The stressor for today is the manager of the hotel (who is also coordinating the wedding) being out on a business trip until Monday. I emailed her on Monday and was told she would be out until Tuesday and would get back to me then. Nothing. I am sure it will all work out in the end but right now it's causing me anxiety sad.gif

now that we've chosen the resort and are soooo happy with our choice, I would have to say that the stress has now changed to all the negativety we're getting for our choice....and well having a destination wedding in general. I had no idea that people felt that their opinions counted more than ours! I can say I wish I was prepared for it, but I don't think anyone can.....at the end of the day i know the important people will be there!

My biggest stressor right now is actually getting this thing BOOKED. I'm terrified the prices will skyrocket before everyone is booked, and then I'll feel guilty for people having to pay more.. My fiance is already on "Island Time" and is "no worries, Mon" about everything. I, however, want to get everything in place so I can stop worrying about it. I'm sure then I will find something else to worry about wink.gif

Picking a resort that will be affordable for my guests. My family does not travel and many are going to be traveling for the first time so I need their AI package to be affordable and enjoyable for everyone. I wish AI pricing was out NOW.

for me, my budget is the biggest stressor.

 

i am happy to keep things pretty small, but my FI wants to invite everyone he has ever met!!

 

...we have a non-existantly small budget, so the fewer people there are..the better it would be for us..

 

he is also on Island Time and believes that there is no need to stress and it will all "just work out"....eeeek!

My biggest stress in all of this has been getting people to book and the worry of people not booking. I wish I could just do it for them. It's hard because we're across the country from most of our friends and family. I think if we were seeing them all the time, it might be a littler easier and almost a reminder to them but we're not... hence the reason we chose a destination wedding.

Looks like Im in the same boat as most here that my main stress factor is getting guests to book their trips. My TA told me that most requested quotes, but no one actually booking. Really hoping they realize that prices go up as time goes by. So far 6 out of 25 guests has actually booked. They have 7 months left, so hopefully things change in next 2 months or so??

 

The 2nd would have to be picking a dress.

Too many people deciding they either can't afford it, don't like mexico, or are too afraid to fly (FI's grandma). Not to mention my photographer backed out 2 days ago because she no longer wants to shoot destination weddings!

 

But even with all of that, I am still excited because I will have those who are most important to me there and I will be having the wedding of my dreams.

    • 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?
