May 2012

Our thoughts have basically been that we are eloping and whoever wants to tag along is more than wecome.  That way I'm not feeling disappointed over who does or doesn't come.  My FI's best man has said that he's not coming, which hurt my FI, but now he's OK with it.  As long as our parents and siblings are there, everyone else is a bonus....

I've been reading some of the posts about guests book, or not booking...that was pretty much my only reservation in choosing to do a destination wedding (it was my fiance's idea in the first place). I didn't want it to feel like we were eloping. I was also worried about a couple key family members and my 2 best friends not being able to afford it, but we sent out a STD in August and within 2 days 30 people booked, including just about everyone I was concerned about! I agree with Jamie, the people who really want to be there for you will make it happen.



 

I actually went onto itravel2000 and pretended like I was booking, and it gave me our flight times.

I could not have word it any better regarding quest that are unable to attend. We originally had thirty ppl, we only have twenty as of now. Even ppl that had made their deposits backout due to their finances. But it was very kind of them to extend their deposits to my other guest that wanted to come. Which thay are staying for just the weekend, It worked out perfect for three of our friends, only havng to pay $175 each remaining balance. I was disappointed, but when I realized how much we were saving from the extra heads it became a win... win... situation.

 

Look on the brighter side, for those who can attend are suppose to only be there. You can always go back home and have something small for those that could not attend.

 

@ the end of the day; It's about you & your soon to be Hubby!

I know exactly how everyone feels regarding people attending. We only have 17 and 3 of those are children 5 and under! We only have 1 friend going which is kind of disappointing because we thought more friends would come. I understand it's hard and expensive but when we have traveled for people we thought they would do the same in return. We only have immediate family and one friend attending. Oh well, we will still have so much fun!!! :)

OMG, are we having the same wedding?  HA, j/k!  but this sounds almost exactly like me and FI.  I have also traveled for friends, so I assumed they liked me enough to do the same.  The only friend we have going is my FI's GM, and that was a struggle to get him and his wife to go!   We have 19 coming and 2 of those people are kids 7 and under.  The rest is immediate family (mostly mine) coming.  But hey, at least we have some peeps there!  :)  And you are right, it is going to be soooooo much fun!!!!

    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
    • So we are currently looking for an all inclusive resort for the wedding. We have 60 guests and found all the Dreams resorts as options and all of them gave us a quote and discounted price since it’s off season etc. Resorts in Punta Canta gave us a reasonable price, Dominicus gave us a really good deal then La Romana Resort and Spa gave us their regular price and so hard to negotiate. Will someone tell us how special is this resort that they won’t give us a good discount when all my guests are staying in their resort for 5-8 days. We are bringing $$$ in their resort and not give us a discount?  What is so special with this resort?  Can somebody recommend a beautiful resort?
