It seems there will always be something or someone conflicting with the dates, that was very considerate of you to change the date! I bet it will be even more special with the time you have to plan it! Now that you have the time, I found this website yesterday from The Dazzling Details that has very thoughtful ideas to include in your DW.

They had great ideas and if you or anyone you know are crafty you may be able to re-create some ideas. Best of wishes and Happy Planning! Here is their FB fan page:

Big hugs to you. My whole family and FI's family are all upset about our December 2010 date because it's so close to Christmas...but in the end we are getting married for us, not them so whoever shows up is who we get. Our date is for us! I won't change it for anyone!!

Oh sweetie I feel for ya! Its true what the girls say, even if it doesn't exactly make you feel better... more time to save and hopefully more people will be there that you want! I don't think I would change it again though, since (like another girl said) it is your life and you shouldn't KEEP postponing it for everyone. Once or even twice is fine but 3 times... well lets just say it wouldn't be me! hehe

 

The option of getting married in Disney could be very cool! like FutureMrsLewis said it can be very affordable or very lavish, depending on what you are looking for (and subsequently your budget). Feel that option out with your FI and the family, maybe they will be all for it! It actually would save people money in the long run, since its one trip not two? Just my thought!

I am a 2 year bride and I love it! I had so much time to enjoy the showers the pictures lose weight! You will be surprised how fast time flies and if you are doing alot of DIY how short time is. Try to take advantage and start your projects from your bouquets to your hair flowers to your centerpieces you have so much time you can make extras and sell them! If you are a sewer start on OTT bags and embellish everything! A good number just make 50 and sell sell sell. Trust me you get this time to really love your future hubby!

Thanks ladies!

Riley and I have chatted about Disney and the possibility of getting married there and he is completely against it. Can't say that I blame him either...Im sure Disney is a wonderful place to get married, but we want something low key, informal and not busy. Disney is not what I envisioned and I dont want to get married there just so that I can still get married that year. I have heard wonderful things about disney and my future SIL was just there for a wedding and she said it was gorgeous!!! However, it was like pulling teeth to get him to agree to take the family there for a vacation, let alone getting married there. So I think I will stick with my original plans atleast the venue anyways. The date...well thats still to be determined I think. All I know is that its in 2012. I am definitely not moving the wedding again to accomodate anyone bc your all right...its is my wedding date and regardless of who can or cant come...Im getting married to him that year. Im okay with moving it this one time, but thats it.

I think the brides that have moved their wedding more then once are very strong women, bc even though I think Im strong, it was so difficult for me to do it once, let alone multiple times. I would have been so upset! Thank goodness Im not the only one dealing with family and how our plans interfere with theirs.....lol

 

Thanks for the encouragement and all the ideas....really appreciate it all.

I definitely will take the time I have and use it wisely. With my OOT bags done, well I guess I can work on some other DIY's but not too many as I dont want to get to far ahead of myself....lol

 

Thanks again!!! smile03.gif

Great attitude Jenny :) Take the time to get ready, no rush! You are, like you said, a strong woman to be able to switch your wedding date. I have seen so many shows with brides who are complete nutjobs and crazy... you are definitely getting some good karma on this one by switching! Just stick with whatever date you choose that year. It is not even 2010 yet officially, so people have all of 2010 and 2011 to save and move things around to be there. Whoever isn't really wasn't going to be there no matter wen you had the date!

 

Have fun, and you better stick around here! wink.gif

Well at least neither of us is alone! lol And I'm sure it won't be too long before we'll find a few more 2012 brides. Besides, we'll have super fabulous weddings now with so much time to plan! :P

    • I know this is an older post, but maybe my message will help someone else.
    • While most readers have (hopefully) heard of Geoffrey Chaucer, they are probably not familiar with his exquisite rondels. And I would rank Charles d’Orleans with Chaucer as a master of the medieval form …
    • Had anyone traveled with their wedding dress on JetBlue? If so can you tell me how you did it? I leave 9/23 and I’m still lost on what I’m doing. I bought a vacuum seal bag but I’m iffy about using that. TIA
    • Hello, has anyone recently gotten married at Le kliff? so far our planning experience hasn’t been the best, does anyone have any recent experience with getting married there? 
    • Hi I’m about to book my wedding and wonder if anyone has recently got married at RUI Ocho Rios? Would anyone has the prices for extras please? We are going to book the top package but we need to add extra people as we have 50 guests. we also want to have an after party after the reception - any ideas on the timings for it or prices please? We have emailed the hotel but can’t seem to get any answers until we pay deposit. Which we have just done at Bahia Principe to find out after they won’t allow us to have a reception past 9:30pm even though they said we could at a cost of $300 usd per half hour prior to booking and paying our deposit. We where prepared to pay this even thought it is very expensive plus DJ and bar costs.    we are nervous to book and pay another deposit now incase we are in the situation. We are already paying hundreds of pounds to amend our guests bookings too.    any advice is greatly appreciated please.   thanks  Sam sjpulfer18@hotmail.co.uk
