Biggest Destination Wedding Stress factor - what's yours?

Recommended Posts

My stress is that everyone was so excited at first, now I keep hearing about people talking behind my back about how selfish I am that I chose to do a destination wedding. This is the reason I chose to leave the country for my wedding in the first place...so that the people I was obligated to invite at home won't be able to make it and only my closest family and friends will be there to share my day!!

I love how honest you are! I completely agree though! Having a destination wedding means not having all those extra people there that you didn't really want in the first place!

The biggest stressors for me are figuring out who will be coming so I can plan everything and trying to explain to hurt friends why we are having a small wedding party.

Oh I'm so glad that I found this forum! When I feel like I must be crazy, I read here there are so many other brides feeling the same way. I have been so stressed that people are not booking and those who were "so on board" when we first started are now giving me the silent treatment rather than "fess up" they can't go. I don't even care that they can't go (I mean,yes I'm disappointed but I realize it's expensive so I'm not mad if they can't go) I'm just hurt & angry that they wouldn't talk to us! My budget has changed so many times because I have NO CLUE who is actually going and how many people to plan for!

After reading this, I'm so glad that I'm not the only one.

My biggest stress factor (anger?) is dealing w/ Mexico vendors who quote me OUTRAGEOUS prices and are clearly price gouging. Understanding what things cost in LA and NYC, it's ridiculous to receive prices that are 20%, 50% or even 100% more than what I would pay there. I dont know if they have gotten away w/ these prices w/ unsuspecting brides, but there's no way I'm falling for it.

Our DW is still a while away but a stressor of mine is actually my FI. lol :)

I keep trying to sit down with him and "include him in decisions" and such, and he keeps giving me the "WE HAVE A YEAR, THERE IS LOTS OF TIME"

Seriously I don't want to hear that anymore. I'm a fairly anal person and like to have things organized, so I don't think it's a big deal to start planning now.

Besides, I want to find deals on summer stuff so if I know what I want now, I can research and find stuff when it does go on sale and know it's a good sale! Is that asking too much?

 

Anyway, I guess it's not a stressor as other people have, but it's my urgggg moment right now!

Cheers,

What isnt stressful??...Im a year away and Im already stressed with all these decisions, not to mention my parents last minute decision of being unsupportive of our DW. I think the biggest challenge will be getting the final head count. How soon is everyone sending out their invites? I'm sending the STD out ASAP. I just dont know what time is good for actual invites, I want to know headcount ASAP also.

So far my biggest stress has been one of my bridesmaids. My advice is to be careful who you ask to be your bridesmaid and ensure that you tell them who will be paying for the dress!

trust me babe, it doesnt get any better as your date gets closer...i've finally just let go of trying to get him involved, i make decisions and then show him whats happening or what ive chosen and (fingers crossed) he likes it. it's not that they don't care, they just think differently. all he cares about is that you are going to be his wife...not the flowers, cake, colors, etc. thats what you have us for wink.gif!!

    • Hello, I'm new to this site. I got engaged already and get married by next year. I have some doubts regarding our dating destination. Hope you will help me. Thank You!
    • Hello everyone,
      Well, this upcoming valentine's day is special for me because I got engaged and planning to spend the day with my fiance. I'm planning to give her an ethical jumpsuit.

      Other than that I have been searching the internet for some nice discounted coupons and searched among my friends and found different sites. Now, we are looking forward to that wonderful day. We searched a lot and found out, Escape The City. Orangeville is a great place for a day trip or weekend gateway from Toronto.
      Theatre Orangeville is offering a weekend package that includes 2 tickets to a Live performance at the theatre, Premium Overnight Accommodations at Best Western Plus Orangeville Inn and Suites and $75 Downtown Wine and Dine Voucher which is valid at select Downtown restaurants, and Free Entry to the scenic Trails & Bridges of Island Lake.

      We are so excited and eagerly waiting for that day.
      If anyone has got any other suggestions for the venue, kindly share your thoughts/ideas.
      Thank You!
       
    • Please tell me, the best wedding venue in Saskatoon, SK.
    • Hey everyone! Like the others here, I'm interested in wedding reception, venue and all related steps & stuff. Starting with my first and the most important note is that we're international couple and we need to think of bilingual wedding. So the first thing we need to think of is whether it will be interpretation or 2 different venue coordinators, sermons and stuff? What is your experience, what could be the best and affordable solution? From googling the issue I've found this Interactio app team ( describing possible solution here  http://blog.interactio.io/case-study-weddings )Basically they offer to hold the venue in the main language, additionally providing simultaneous interpretation online to other quest's mobile phones. Looks like really easy and creative idea. What about the others? How did you solve this kind of obstacle? Any additional advises would be very welcomed here
