I totally understand you ! 1st, it was only suppose to be our parents and us (and my 2 dayghters). Then my mom had a "small" fit and wanted me to invite my brothers... so I did ! Then both of them say it is too expensive. I waited for their answer before I reserved the hotel and guess what, waiting cost me 1400 $ (Canadian) ! The prices went up by the time they game me their answers. Then, one of my FI friend said he wanted to come. FOr the past few months he was still coming so just to be on the safe side, we invited all our friends...all want to come but they say it is too expensive ! What it is thses days with people
?? They want to come and then when you say they have to pay for their trip, they back out #$$%$$#. One week at dreams Tulum is only 1600$ (This is just before the holidays too!). Do they think a 1 week vacation at a 5* hotel is 800$
?? The worst excuse was : why get married in December? Can't you do it at the end of January when I am fed up of the snow? I just answered that I picked the date because that is the date I wanted...just before the holidays since I just love that time of the year...so magical !
When our friends said they were going, I started to imagine a wedding with all of those people around me... Now, I am back to our 1st wishes...just the parents + my kids. All this to come back to point A. But my mom is paying for my brothers airfare so they will need to just pay for the room. They are still complaning because they each want their room (they are adults by the way) ! If you say you can't afford it, don't be picky about it ! Being single in a room is the same price as being 2 !!!! And what is the problem about sharing a room to save a 800$.
I would of loved to have two rooms...one for me, one for my kids but the price was 2600$ more !!!! We all what luxury but we all can't afford it...
just venting here...getting the frustration out...I see I am not the only one..
