      Hi Ladies,

       I need to share or vent. So my fiance's best man, his stepbrother called him from the UK today to tell him that he can't come to our wedding!!! Understandably he lost his job a month or so again but it is really upsetting for us as we are not having a lot of people and his wife is one of my bridesmaids!! We are hoping his family may offer to help out...trying to keep positive thoughts.

        Amjohnson, I know how much this sux...but unfortunately it is the reality of a destination wedding. We did everything we could to try and ensure certain friends/relatives could attend including letting them know over a year in advance, offering to help pay etc. and we still had some ppl drop out after they had told us they would come. One of these individuals was my FI's best man. Even though we knew that this could happen from the start, it was still hard. You just have to remember that regardless of WHERE you have your wedding, there will always be people who cannot attend. Stay positive....I'm still keeping my fingers crossed we win 649 before the wedding! :)

          So I was just on the Air Canada web site checking baggage dimensions and noticed that the executive class allowance has changed from 3 bags to 2 bags!!! Tickets issued before September 7 or travel before October 11, 2011 still get the 3 bags free.

           

          Just thought I'd let you all know b/c this might make a big difference to some brides flying on AC and planning on bringing decorations etc. down with them!

            That sucks.

            I am assuming that means all of their new luggage restrictions will be in effect for weddings next year. Not happy with Air Canada whatsoever. They have turned out to be the worst! No flexiblity, wouldn't allow my guests to upgrade resorts without impacting my concession, and now the luggage thing. I wish I had booked with another tour operator.

              I feel your pain. My FI had a groomsman say very quickly that yes he would stand up but now has told us he cant go because of finances. I understand that some ppl arent able to afford to go that is just a reality of a destination wedding. BUT what angers me is that they so quickly say YES to stand up and dont realise that they cause my FI to be upset because now they recount.
