Hey!! I wanted to introduce myself as I have been lurking for a few weeks now. My name is Sarah and I live in Charlotte and we are planning a DW for 2013. I had originally wanted to wed 4/20/13 but now I'm having alot of second thoughts. It was looking like it would just be the 2 of us but now I am thinking of inviting people and giving them the opportunity to go or not. I guess I'm already dreading the reactions and comments of people complaining of the costs and travel. BUT the more I think about it I believe that people spend their money on what they want to so if they have over a year to plan they could go if they wanted to. Which means I'm seriously thinking of changing my date to middle of June 2013 that way it would be summer break from school for those who have kids. We have twin toddlers and a teenage daughter but I am not planning on taking my own kids since it will be our honeymoon also. At first I was against kids period. But I know my BFF could not / would not go if she couldn't bring her kids...soooooo I'm swaying along the lines of allowing other peoples kids. Very confused on how things go. I have my 1st skype meeting with a TA tomorrow who specializes in DW and I'm hoping she has good info for me. We are prob narrowing down to Jamaica or Mexico due to affordability.
So do I ask someone to be a bridesmaid before I invite them?? Because I'm afraid that the people who I have always thought would b in my wedding, will not be going.
Also, are there any important questions that I want to know from TA??
So if I decide on a place and book...say it is for June 2013 and I book in May 2012...do I immediately send STD so ppl can be aware and save?
Very excited to have a place with people in the same situation as I am!
