    Oh no! Do you have a travel agent who is kind of handling things for you? It is wonderful they want to share in your special day, but this is long after your deadline, I can see how that could be frustrating... 

    Hope it all works out!

    I just need to vent for a little bit.  We originally gave our guest a deadline of July 15th and then it was extended to August 15th.  Then this past week 8 more people have told us they may be coming.  Grrr!!  I am happy they want to come but really, we gave a deadline for a reason.  Thanks for letting me get that off my chest!

      I feel your pain! We made our RSVP date November 4th exactly 3 months before the wedding but now I am wishing we had made it a little sooner!  Our group rate closed end of August so the November RSVP was mainly for people who couldn't commit that early on but we have had more than expect jump on over the last few weeks!!!!

       

      Our small intimate DW has turned into my big fat stressful day!

       

      I am also considering moving the wedding and reception from the resort to a private restaurant and beach since every time I turn around the resort has decided to up a price or start charging for something else!!!! I am hoping to get this all sorted out over the next week because to be perfectly honest I am so over wedding planning!

       

      Ahhhhh a vent always makes you feel a little better!!!!!

        I hear ya ladies!

        We have had a number of people say they're coming but haven't booked yet, so I really won't have any idea until right before we go!! Grr.. Anyhow, we've also moved our wedding to a private beach, we'll have the ceremony & reception there. We wanted something private and more intimate, the resort pricing is unpredictable and we found a company who has been great to work with and very willing to negotiate (ie, if we want to substitute things in her pkg, etc...).

          Need your feedback ladies.  Do you think these shoes are ok or should I keep searching?  Pressure was on with my first dress fitting on Thursday so I picked these up but am looking for some feedback!!!! I am likely just wearing these for a few pictures and doing a flat sandal for the majority of the day!

            They look really nice, but those flowers would annoy me if I had to wear them for a long time, because I think they might be catching on the bottom of the dress. But I really like the colour! If you plan to wear them for a few pics and then switch to flats I think they would be perfect. ( I got shoes to wear for a few pics and then switch to my flats too :) )

              I really like them, Tori! I imagine that you dress would be long enough that it wouldn't be too much of a problem> AND they aren't too high. I am having the hardest time finding heels that aren't over 3 inches! I ended up buying two pairs - silver sparkly sandles that are 2 1/2 inches and then some platform cobalt party shoes that are 4 inches high for the reception and my reception dress. I couldn't find any short heeled blue shoes anywhere!

              Did you get these?

                Have any of you looked at the Tommy Bahama website recently for sandals or dresses?  They have SUPER cute sparkly sandals, some with a bit of a wedge to the heel...but, be warned, they are a bit on the pricey side.  Beautiful sundresses too in all kinds of colours, including white.  And, they ship to Canada.  Just another option...

                  Very cute! Out of my price range, sadly... though I certainly wish they weren't!

                    Those shoes look great Tori!!  Love the colour!  But if you don't love them and I were you, I would keep looking.  Can't wait to hear how the dress fitting went.

                      I really like these shoes and I love the heel size but if you don't love them I would continue your search! Can't wait to hear about your dress fitting!!!
