Why are you having a destination wedding?

Recommended Posts

Yeah, it has been hard. We almost changed our minds because of it but then we decided that it was about us as a family and that we should do what makes us happy. Our daughter Hannah is really excited so that makes it even more special!!

stay strong Angela!!! 

 

most of our friends & family have warmed up to the idea. there are a few who are still "what the hell? planning our vacation FOR us?!" and to them I say - whatever!! 

 

This is our day, it's about us, and starting our marriage.

 

While we hope all of our close friends and family will choose to join us, we know that just won't happen. My FI has told me several times that we can't plan around other people, or make their choices for them.

Good for you!! You will be so glad that you didn't change your mind. AND, those guests who weren't as thrilled about the idea (like some of mine because we had ours in Mexico) will change their minds once they are there. All of my guests came away saying it was a beautiful wedding and they were happy it was a destination wedding because they had a blast--and yes, some of these people weren't exactly thrilled when they received the wedding invite. Besides, I think one of the most important things that changes peoples' minds aside from their attendance is seeing YOU happy and excited. So keep planning and get ready for a great time!

To keep it small. I don't do well in crowds, and want this to be something I will truly enjoy. I would be happy if just my FI and I were there, but my close family would be very upset so we are keeping it very close.

So many reasons why I wanted a destination wedding!  First of all, I didn't want to spend tens of thousands of dollars on one day when we're getting a house all in the same year.  I like the thought of celebrating with a small, close group of family and friends.  It also puts my Fiance and I on even playing field as far as family goes.  Most of my family lives in a different province/countries, his family all lives around here.  We're asking the same thing of everyone, so it makes it more fair I guess you could say.

 

To be honest I never really dreamed of my wedding until I actually saw one while on vacation.  I thought then, now THAT is my dream wedding - so destination wedding it was:)

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
    • I think you should approach the dentist. That would be the best idea as of now.
