Don't worry Janet, I know how you feel. I really don't think a lot of people understand that like ANY wedding, destination weddings also require a lot of planning and organization! I cannot count the number of people who have made comments to me like "destination weddings are stress free" and "don't you just show up and everything is done for you by the resort?!". I politely explain each time that there are many aspects of wedding planning that remain the same regardless of the location....dress, bridal party attire, favours, food selection, cake, dj, flowers etc. Instead of tastings, we have to make selections based on pictures and documents. Instead of meeting with our vendors, we have to do everything via email. Plus we get the added bonus of having to deal with travel agents! haha. You have the right attitude though...keep calm and carry on!!! That being said, I'll let you know how I feel on October 1st when my RSVP deadline passes and I haven't heard back from everyone!

There are so many last minute guests adding on. Its not that i mind that we will have more people or anything like that but its the fact that we are so close now and most of my planning is done for favors, OOT, my BUDGET, organized seating, the resort etc.....if it were two people SURE no problem but we are talking like 8 and counting...so many of the last minute deal shoppers. But the worst part is that we are finding this out through the TA and the guests arent even telling us so when we mention it to them they are telling us they thought it would be a "nice surprise"....i think some people dont get that you are still planning a wedding. Its not just a trip down south. I need to know these things! LOL oh well there is my rant....if i have all these extra people and not enough OOT or favors i will just politely apologize to these guests and move along with my trip and wedding! Keep calm and carry on!!!! LOL
