      Oh Jamie I'm so sorry to hear this!! My sister who agreed to be in the wedding pulled this crap on me too. A text saying they weren't going to be able to afford it after she committed to be a bridesmaid. Pissed me off!! Especially knowing how she and her husband spend money on drinking, season football tickets and shopping. Really you couldn't plan a year in advance. But they ended up working it out and will be in attendance. So hopefully your brothers can put aside their differences and be there for YOU their SISTER!! Silly siblings.......the can all be asses sometimes!!

       

      I'm sorry to hear about your friends too. One thing you can count on is the people that do come to your wedding are there simply because they want to be there for you and your FI big day those people are your true friends. Don't feel foolish for that "friend" not being honest with you. It's her loss not yours!

        Maybe you can have a welcome dinner or a departing breakfast. You could also take the opportunity to have a cocktail hour in between the time your "reception" starts and the wedding. It will give your guests something to do while you and your hubby take pictures afterwards.

        So we have qualified for a free function and I'm still not sure what I want to do post our 6pm ceremony? Dinner Reservation and a 2 hour private after party?? Or have a 3 hour function with dinner Maybe throw the bartender some cash to stay and save the reservation for another night? We only have a MOH and BM so we wont have a rehearsal or anything? I also want our guests who are mostly staying 4 nights to have their own time...

         

        What are the big $$ items for a function? And what other "events" to you have?

        I don't know why this is giving me such grief???

          I'm soo sorry to hear all of that, Jamie!! That is so frustrating, and disappointing to say the least! I have my fair share of comments about all of this, but we'll discuss it when we get together this week. You're MORE THAN WELCOME to vent to me! I feel for ya sister! Sounds like we'll be having a good amount of wine this time around *big hugs* See you soon!

            Hey ladies. I'm putting together the welcome information for my OOT bags and was wondering if anyone had a picture of the resort map that I can put in my vistaprint brochure. The one from the website is too large.

              Thanks Ladies! :)

               

              Lee-I'll see ya tomorrow and we shall discuss more (if I have it in me!)  :)

               

              On a much happier note, we received our plastic stein mugs for our OOT bags yesterday.  They turned out sooooo GREAT and I am so excited about them.  I swear I will post pix as soon as I have some time to put thing together!  :)  They are 32 oz, so they are huge, FI actually made a comment about the size, but the more drink the better I say!  :) 

               

              Now I just need to receive the t-shirts and brochures that I ordered from Vista and our we will have all of our OOT bag contents!

                Hey ladies,

                 

                Just thought I would pass on some helpful information I received.  I just got an email from Joannis (Ivis's replacement) and the new collections (Colin Cowie ones) are not in affect until May 1st so the old 2011 complimentary package is still what is being used now.

                 

                Happy planning!

                  OK so I finally tracked down someone in the wedding department. I guess Joannis is now my wedding coordinator and she knew nothing of my wedding. How in the world does Palace not have any ideas as to what the hell they are doing!! I'm 18 days out and no one wonders with Ivis just walking out maybe they should look through the upcoming wedding and make sure things are set!!

                   

                  Joannis is very nice and said she would call in all my requests since I'm so close to my wedding date but Ivis had nothing set! My flower order wasn't put in, my dinner reservation was on the wrong day, my sites are still not confirmed. I swear to goodness, if I could I would go with another resort. I am so unhappy and I plan to let Palace know.

                  I'm not happy Joannis said well with it being so late in the process she hopes my locations can be approved. Let me tell if they can't I'm going to raise holy hell!! Its not my fault they have incompetent workers.

                   

                  Then I ask about my on-site coordinator and why she hasn't contacted me?!! Joannis said she would call her as well to get her in touch with me but really she should know I'm having my wedding in 18 days and she needs to at least email me to let me know who she is!

                   

                  I don't know why I thought a DW would be less trouble, so far its a friggin nightmare!

                    ChipmunkRN..keeping your sanity in my thoughts..I dont know what I would do if I were in your shoes other than to raise hell.   I sure hope they get this all resolved shortly for you and other upcoming brides!
