(Mind you, I asked both of these girls to be IN the wedding last November!! A year ago!!!) The wedding is not until May so they have had plenty of time to plan and save. Ugh... my fiance is not one to show much emotion but i just KNOW its killing him inside and i feel horrible!!! Let alone.. not one person has booked their trip yet... i know we have a good 7 months to go but as of right now I feel like we are going to have zero guests!! I just needed to vent with some girls who have an insight into what I am going through!!

     


    I can totally feel your pain! I found the whole planning a wedding experience to be so interesting and now can see the hidden blessing. At the end of the day, you got to find out who is going to be there for you when it matters and who won't be. Its good to have that knowledge about the people around you so early on. I say, accept it and screw 'em. You will have the best time no matter what!

     

    And any one who can't come for no good reason isn't worth having attend anyway! Of course there are good reasons for not coming and that is a totally different matter but it seems to me like Sisters of the Groom in the bridal party with around 18 months notice probably do not have a legit excuse.

       "Accept it and screw em!"... I am going to try and live by this quote throughout the rest of my planning process!!!! because its totally true!! if someone truely really wants to be there then they would make it possible and I am going to really appreciate the people who made it their #1 priority to attend and support us!

        Hi ladies I had my wedding last Friday at the chapel and it was beautiful and just want I wanted! My family and friends are what made it special despite moon palace. We brought 60 people here and have had the worst experience dealing with them. We decided to go stay at the isla mujeres resort for remainder of our trip to relax! Everything has been so stressful at moon palace and its a shame because I really like it there. They changed my coordinator when I got here from Emy to Teresa who was awful!!! She was not helpful at all! I'll post a review later. For those worrying about the construction in sunrise, it's basically done. We got here on 10/29 and it was a mess! The resort lost power all day on Tuesday and had no hot water...thankfully it came back at night. We stayed at nizuc to avoid the construction. We went back over to sunrise for the club Thursday night and the lobby transformed- no more construction! It was night and day! I really hope you future brides have a better experience than I did!

                  I know it's easy for me to say but it will all work out trust me... People wait until the very LAST minute to book.  Our wedding is on Saturday and we just had someone book their room today and we had a groomsmen back out last monday, his room was booked and he still backed out... because they waited until the last minute to book their airfare and now flights out of philadelphia are outrageous.  My fiance is the same way he shows no emotion and acts like it doesn't bother him but I know deep down it does.  I felt the same way you did about people booking, then all of a sudden people started booking about 2 months before the wedding.  We have also had our fair share of family drama, my fiance's sister told us numerous times we were selfish, she can't believe we would ask people to spend that much money for our wedding, how could we get married on foreign soil blah blah blah.  Then she said she was coming, then she wasn't coming, then she was coming again and guess what she is NOT coming now and we haven't talked to her in 4 months.  

                   

                  One thing I have learned is that some people do not care about anyone but themselves and think because your having a destination wedding its no big deal.  Some people who I thought would never spend the money to come to our wedding did and others that I thought would be there for sure have given us some lame excuse as to why they cant be there.
