I just wanted some of your opinions. I am starting to get nervous of how much money it is going to cost for our guests. I know that it is our decision to have a destination wedding and of course i know that not everyone is going to make it which I totally understand and honestly wanted a smaller wedding...but I have heard from some close family members of ours that they are not even going to be able to go to the wedding due to the cost.... Another reason is that my cousin got engaged literally the same week I did and is having her wedding in Rome a month after me. So a lot of my family is feeling really stressed I think which is totally understandable.
Did you find that any of your guests were upset about the money? I sent out our save the dates about a month ago so they would have a year to save. My fiance keeps telling me that it is what it is and this is what we wanted which is true. Did any of you feel bad about the money part? I guess I am just looking for some advice on how you may have handled it when a family member said they can't go or are going to look to stay at a diff hotel because this one is too expensive.
From the reviews I've seen, I notice that it is all worth it because of how great of a hotel it is and that is why I chose to go with LeBlanc. It was exactly what I wanted and didn't want to just pick another hotel that was cheaper and it not be as nice for our wedding.
Yes, you have to do what you guys want but know that at the end there will people that will not go and you guys can't be upset about it. Also, remember that only 20% of the guests can stay outside of Le Blanc. Our wedding is in Dec. & our RSVP date was end of Sept. and our guests still haven't send it in or there are guests that didn't tell us and booked somewhere else. You will get through it and budget paying for a close family that you want there. The people that you guys must have there you should ask now..if they are 100% in so there are no surprises later. Good luck an PM me if you have any other questions. Happy Planning!
