Biggest Destination Wedding Stress factor - what's yours?

Recommended Posts

So far, my biggest stress is worrying whether my family and friends can afford to attend our destination wedding. In the end, I know I need to focus on the people who do come to our wedding and not to worry about those who don't or can't attend.

Such a great thread! It helps to know we all feel the same way.

My stresses have been my FI not wanting to help plan anything, which doesn't bother me anymore.

Finding and finalizing with a TA. I just wanted to get it done & sign a contract!

 

Now I am stressing over who is really coming out of EVERYONE who said they were! I want to start buying things but have no idea of a head count...I also go dress shopping next week and am stressing that I won't find "the one".

I am trying to just relax and not care about anything!! I have plenty of time!

what a great thread

 

I think the biggest stressor for us was picking a resort, and still now we wonder "did we pick the right resort"

So far my biggest and current stressor is deciding on a resort. Taking into consideration the cost for the wedding package and guests travel expenses.  Everyone wants us to have a date and know what resort! I'm doing the best I can but know that cost is an important factor and if it wasn't we'd be booked already!

 

This site has been awesome for me. I come on here to get support, vent and get great ideas! Its the best!

My biggest stressor by far is getting certain members of the bridal party to actually book. We had to meet a minimum room block and people who were coming dropped out without telling me. I had to randomly ask and THEN they decide to tell me. Less than 2 months from the wedding, people haven't booked. That has been my biggest stress: People who aren't adult enough to handle business and tell you they're not coming. People who you thought were friends really aren't. That's been annoying.

Well, another big one, was trying to figure out who was actually going to be there - that was EXTREMELY stressful...  I finally gave up on that, and decided that I just wanted to be there with my fiance. :)

AfricanVenus & Others...

 

i hope the fact that people haven't booked isn't your indication of their friendship...i'm learning throughout this DW process that some folks just can't 'afford' to travel, ie, they don't work (often or at all) or they have young kids without a babysitter or the means to travel with their children or they're afraid to travel or they're on a fixed income and too proud to beg or tell you the truth...it could be a number of factors and yes, it sucks..especially when most have had over a year to plan or 'layaway' their vacay BUT, its all good..my thought is..whoever is there was supposed to be there...so i've chalked that one up. 

 

i'd have to say, my biggest stressor has been the dress...i bought one dress then decided it simply wasn't 'fabulous' enough for the Iberostar Rosehall Beach wedding i'd committed to, so i bought another..another stressor is the travel coordination for my kids..my fiance and i have four adult (i use that term loosely) kids...one is still in college, another is in law school and then our youngest two are high school seniors who all live with our ex-spouses...so trying to get them all there within the same timeframe has been difficult..but doable.

 

happy planning, all!!!  R~

    • 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.
