    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

      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

          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.

                  I'm stressing too about people not booking and also guests not liking the resort we picked.

                    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.
