My TA is stealing my thunder!!!

Recommended Posts

Don't get me wrong, I do think she had good intentions. But let's not go overboard here with praise because she's been terrible with everything up until this last 'good deed'. This isn't my biggest complaint about her, let's say it's the cherry on top. None of my guests are satisfied with her communication or initiative either...who knows these bags might win them over now.

 

I realize it's not the end of the world, but I've now wasted money on redundant items and that sucks. Why do I have to go out and change my OOT bags now? Oh well what's another couple hundred dollars on OOT stuff...

 

Basically it sucks since there's nothing that can be done about it, and I'm left feeling regrets of not organizing this group myself through Carnival. I thought a TA would be the easy route, and it's been nothing but a headache.

Well pretty soon this situation (and your wedding!) will be a distant memory so don't dwell on it for too long.

 

Remember what the bags are for in the first place, kwim? You're getting married! That should generate enough excitement to make the mishaps pretty trivial, at least they were for me and I was dealing with a lot more than an OOT bag crisis. Your wedding will be great no matter what ends up in the bags :)

Don't let this get to you! Your day is coming so soon and you need to be focusing on the positives.... you're getting married :o) You can sell the extra stuff online or on this forum as it sounds like you purchased pretty basic OOT items.

So sorry to hear that you are stressed about this. Can you re-sell these items possibly? I'm sure that the TA did not mean to steal your thunder. IMHO...what the TA did was a nice touch...if you did not mention the other issues, I would have said that you had a fabulous TA and were a lucky girl. Still and all....although it was the TA that gave your guests these things...I'm sure it all reflects wonderfully on you too!!! Your guests will think both you and your TA are great!!

 

I hope that you can find something else to give your guests...this is just a minor bump on teh road to forever...hang in there.

When it comes to your wedding, you have enough stuff to worry and stress about already, so as the saying goes:

 

Don't sweat the petty stuff, and don't pet the sweaty stuff wink.gif

My TA is awful too and i REALLY wish that i could have done all of the TA work myself, becasue truly, i almost have! Def a nice guesture for her to send those items to your guests, but she definitely should run that past her brides first! maybe you can try selling some of your stuff on this site? and even if you do give a duplicate, most people will prob forget the stuff the TA gave them at home! Try not to worry too much :)

    • Good afternoon, I wanted to inquire if anyone has or knows someone who got married at this resort. How was it? How are the coordinators? Packages that were chosen. Any help would be greatly appreciated.   Thanks.
    • Hi all! I know this is an old thread... but just in case there are other destination wedding brides out there with the same question, I thought I would answer! My guy and I live in Texas and just got our marriage license (yay!). We are getting married in Playa del Carmen, Mexico. The Dallas County clerk informed us that we can get our marriage license in Texas, bring it and a Texas-registered officiant to Mexico, have the ceremony in Mexico, then bring the marriage license back to Texas to file and it will be LEGAL in the US.  In  other words, we can legally get married in Mexico using our Texas marriage license and officiant (who is a family friend), then file the paperwork when we get home. Where it says 'county in which ceremony was performed' on the license, we just put in Playa del Carmen, Mexico and bam! Married :) I do not know if this is true for other states, but it is CONFIRMED for Texas! I suggest asking the clerk when you register for your marriage license. I am overjoyed that we can have a US-legal marriage in Mexico so our wedding date on our license will be the actual day! NO blood tests, or getting married before or after the trip required!  
    • Every Bride spends a lot of time researching and worrying about her perfect wedding dress. While many Indian brides choose the traditional red colour for their bridal gown, a few of them find some different colours to wear on their special day. Here is a description of how to choose an Indian wedding dress that suits your skin tone. 1) Fair complexion: You can choose any shade of blue or bright shades of pink and red. In the shades of blue- select scuba blue or royal blue. Among other colours this season, you can pick up your dress in tangerine.   2) Wheatish complexion Just select those colours which bring out the warmth in your complexion. Some of the best options for you are tangy orange, saffron yellow, vibrant shades of red, mint green and hot pink.   3) Dusky complexion: If you have an olive skin tone, then you can pull off any rich and dark colour quite well. So, the colours like classic blue, marsala, burnt orange and brick red are just perfect for you. Also the metallic silver, gold and bronze will even flatter your face pretty well
    • I will be using the hPage Website Builder to create a free website for our wedding. I am planning to post wedding updates, wedding photos, wedding reminders, and wedding articles regarding our upcoming marriage there. For RSVP, I am using Facebook events since almost all we invited have facebook and it would be easier to get their "yes" or "no" confirmation there. In case anyone is interested as well here's their site: hPage Website Builder - https://www.hpage.com
