I know people aren't made of money

Recommended Posts

I hear you ladies!!  I have been dealing with the same such as my FI friends who have invited us to their events and we spend god knows how much money on their crap and they don't even consider going to our DW because not the best time and I"'m like really you have know for a year and half.  Than there are the other set of people who get the invites because our parents wanted us to send it to them and their response is so what are you paying the flight and room or do we pay for one of them?  I'm like are f**king kidding me if we paid for everyone it would be close to $60,000 i'm sorry but i don't like you that much.  We have so far 34 guest confirmed and that is good enough for me.  If I wanted a big cookie cutter wedding I would have just had a wedding at home.  I just look at it like this if all 150 guests actually showed up to our dw I think I would have freaked I mean think about it do you want to be surrounded for several days with people that you know on vaca?  I don't.  I want an intimate wedding with my close friends and family and that is what we are having and for me that is PERFECT.

Amen to that, Jenn! The way I see it, if someone really wants to, they will make it happen. If they financially cannot do it, then there's always an AHR. Besides, you don't want your random great-uncle Charlie there...a DW thins out the massive family members that appear out of the woodwork.

I've had a change of heart since I posted last...I'm actually liking what is happening now...it is going to be a very small, intimate gathering of the people who love me the most and are willing to shell out some major cash to see me get married.

FINALLY i find girls that UNDERSTAND ME!! I posted a similar comment on Yahoo/answers and recieved such negativity from people that i deleted the comment!. Its MY wedding and i have the say on what I WANT for MY wedding.. We understand this is a burden with the economy and all but lets face it most people take a vacation once a yr!!!! What's the excuse.. and half the people that are "complaining" are the one's who are always traveling "Are you serious".Anyways I myself have cried a lot over the lack of interest by some people due to this but now  I JUST DONT CARE anymore... Sorry..... Its  my wedding and its going to happen wether they go or not! ...

If I can say one thing its that you will all feel better once you stop focusing on the negativity from people and focus on you and your groom. Seriously it took me a while to get there but ultimately this day is really about you and him and once you're there you won't even notice the people that aren't there. Good luck ladies! Stay positive!

Ha... I know I posted on this thread previously, but I'll give you another one....

 

How about a guest telling you: " why did you book only a regular room".  "can't you guys afford to get a superior suite"...and "why only a semi-private dinner, you guys don't want to pay for private?"... 

 

how about you book your ticket first, and then tell me what to do!

 WTF!!!!!!!!!! you should tell them you are having a private reception, but they aren't invited. lol :)   

 

btw, we have guests booking better rooms than we are... they don't have to pay for anything but the room.  makes it a little easier to upgrade!  people have no common sense.

I guess we are all in the same boat. My fiance and I got engaged 2 yers ago and told everyone right away that we'd want to do a DW. Now the wedding isnt untill March 2012 so really if anyone tells me they cannot afford it.....seriously you had 3 yrs to save 1600.00 If they really wanted to they could. My FI is italian and although his immediate fam is small and are all fine with a DW the extended fam had their own comments. Either the date clashes with a work trip or they feel that Mexico isnt safe or theres a bug going around.....cmon!!!! really?? I dont understand why ppl cant just be happy for us and if you cannot come then just be polite and say "id love to be there but i cannot, so sorry, i know your wedding will be beautiful cannot wait to see the pics. Done! But that would be too simple ppl feel the need to throw in their 2 cents and make comments and give their opinions. God give me patience to not yell out "shut up! if u dont wanna come then I don't want you there!" lol

    • The cooking method can double the calorie content of a meal, so learn about healthy cooking without having to add extra fats, like using a steamer,  a rotisserie , a slow cooker , a pressure cooker, a grill. Once you cook your own meals, you can control the calorie content because your control the cooking method and all the ingredients. A lot of people are overweight because they keep eating food that they did not cook.
    • 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 for Kids.  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    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • 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.
