Biggest Destination Wedding Stress factor - what's yours?

Recommended Posts

OUr biggest stressor has been determining our "First Dance" song.  We had our song all picked out and it was perfect for us and my FI's little sister who decided to get engaged after us and married 3 months before, also decided it should be her first dance song and didn't tell us.  We heard it at the wedding and I literally ran out of the room in tears.  So we've been hunting for 3 months for another perfect song because we refuse to have the same song.  I thougth we had it and then after trying to dance to it last night - realized it just doesn't work for our lack of dancing skills.  So the hunt is back on and it best hurry - our ceremony is in 10 days!

As Jennifer stated, my biggest stressor was dealing with my family.  My parents+aunts+uncles were the ONLY ones who did NOT want a destination wedding!!!  My in-laws and my husband's family and all of our friends were sooo excited but my family just could not let it go.  They kept telling me that nobody will come and to have the wedding at home.  I even started to look at venues at home and thankfully my husband gave me a good pep talk and reminded me that this is what WE want and that they will enjoy it once they are there.  He was totally right and now my family keeps saying how we need to do a 1-year reunion.  I wish that I didn't allow them to stress me out so much but it's hard when it's your immediate family who's giving you flack every day.  Makes you question things.

I'm still a year away from my wedding but the biggest stresses so far are planning a wedding somewhere I've never been and trying to pick a wedding location that people can afford to come to. It would be great to win the lottery and not have to worry about that!

Yeah I know how you gals feel. I have a BM feels that she cant' afford it anymore and that she can find a better deal herself even after I told everyone after I was engaged the cost of this DW travel commitment. At this point I don't even think I can make the group rate happen because I depended on her to make that final number for the group rate. Also, if she doesn't travel with us I don't have the reassurance that she will be there for the wedding. What if she can't find a flight for the same day? What if she can't stay in the same hotel? Oh the stresses!!!!!

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
    • I think you should approach the dentist. That would be the best idea as of now.
