    Well put!  I agree Janet!

    Stay positive Janet, I get the frustration with last minute changes but I am sure it will all work out.  It's your day so don't sweat the small stuff!!!! As long as you and FI are there it'll be beautiful and perfect!!!!

      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!!

                    Congrats on your engagement. I'm from Ottawa too ;)

                    its not ambitious. FI and i got engaged on December 4th. We only booked our resort and everything after the holidays in January and we are getting married in October. You just have to be prepared to be busy :) LOL i can help with anything you need so dont hesitate to ask. Good luck!
