So frustrating!!  My best friend and one of my maid of honors(i'm having 2), has complained about pricing and where were going since the begining.  I even got the prices down and she still complained and now I don't even know if she is coming or not!  She has complained so much that I don't even want to talk to her about it anymore so I'm just going to wait to see if I get her reply in the mail.  But I try as should you to keep a happy mind hopefully things will work out for you.

I had to find a replacement, which was no big deal because I have the best sister in law in the world and asked her.  It has been 3 months since the switch, and when our dresses all arrived and she tried it on with us and noticed she would be missing out, she decided she wanted back in.  Even though it would have been a headache for me to find another guy to step in and then arrange for gifts for her as well and set up the same things I had lined up for the other girls, I told her she could be back in it.  I had originally paid for half her dress and was going to pay for alterations because she was a student and I wanted to help her out....  She decided to come right out and tell me she would only come if I paid for half of her dress and alterations, as it wasnt fair for me to do it for the other girls and not her too..... This ticked me off, I had already had to find a replacement for her, and pay for those items for this new bridesmaid.... and now she wanted back in, and expected me to pay for this for her? I explained to her why this requet was unreasonable and she simply said "its your wedding, you should expect to pay for things"..... I realize that, and I would have had no issues helping her out... if a) She made up her mind on if she was coming or not... or B)she didnt EXPECT me to do these things for her...

Hi from Ottawa Ladies! I noticed alot of you are planning for Next April. Are my fiancee and I being a little ambitious in hoping to book for February? We also still haven't picked a resort. Our TA told us to wait til August as prices would come down then and we want to keep the cost for our guests around 1500-1700 for the week. It will most likely be Jamaica or Mexico for that budget as we don't want the D.R. or Cuba. There are so many decisions to make already... and we've only been engaged for a week!

I gave her the boot... I dont need the extra stress... She mentioned to another friend that if she wasnt in the wedding party she wasn't going to go because she would feel left out.. but really If I thought she was good enough of a friend to ask her to stand up with me, you would think she would feel like she is good enough of a friend to attend like everyone else.

I think we are lucky so far with our bridal party but I am sure our own issues will come up!!

    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good  I enjoyed my stay at both, but personally I liked the ambiance better at Dreams La Romana.  In the past 10 years or so Destination weddings have become very popular and the resorts do 100's each year. 60 guests with approx 30 rooms or so is a great group, but when the resorts have 500+ rooms they do not look at it as a large group. Most resorts are pretty set when it comes to what they offer in their wedding packages, but some may do an upgrade for the bride & groom if it's available. The benefit of doing a group block is you have the opportunity to earn group amenities based on the number of guests & rooms that book at the resort.  Please let me know if you have any other questions.

    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
