Friends' Questions and Requirements for the Wedding

Recommended Posts

I know my friends just want to be involved... most of them live across the world, so their way is to ask me a lot of questions: did you pick a dress? will you have bridesmaids? will you do this or that?


The thing is, when my answers are not what they would do in their weddings then they keep asking: but why??!!!! it's so "IN" now!! :S 


Well, I don't really care about what is "IN" !!! I just want to have my wedding as I envisioned it! Why can't they just accept that, and well... keep your ideas for YOUR wedding! ARGG! 


I think I'm exaggerating.. but it's still annoying! 


The most annoying one is from one that wants to be a bridesmaid... but guess what? I don't want to have bridesmaids! I know that in the U.S. everyone has them, but I'm not from the U.S.! And she either!!! We are from another country, where apparently suddenly everyone has bridesmaids. Well, sorry but the trend is just not for me. I didn't want bridesmaids before, it was never my dream or anything, so I won't. So, I told her that, and now she says that "well, it's ok, since I'm sure I will be a witness" UHH... NO! we will only have 2 and she won't be one of them, it will be my sister and someone from my FI's family, period.


I don't know how not to sound so rude about this with my friend, but I just don't consider my wedding the occasion where I have to start giving my best friends to have a "main role", it's my FI and my day! 


Anyone having similar problems?

LOL...this is kinda funny but kinda not.  Sorry you're having a tough time with all the questions and opinions and your friend assuming she's involved in the wedding.  I think all of us brides go thru this to some degree.  I suggest to telling her you want something very simple and not alot of fuss or big production with a wedding party, and the only person you're having as a witness is your sister and your FI's relative because they are FAMILY, and they would be extremely hurt if they weren't the witnesses.  Hopefully she'll understand.  But, to make it a bit funny, tell her she's more than welcome to throw you a huge bridal shower and a even bigger bachelorette party!  LOL.  good luck!

    • I have stayed at Dreams La Romana and Dreams Dominicus.  The two resorts are very different in style and decor. A few comparison points are below and fact sheets are attached for both.   Both resorts are approx 45 minutes from Punta Cana airport, close proximity to Saona Island, Catalina Island and Altos de Chavon. Top championship golf courses in the Caribbean are just minutes away including Teeth of the Dog, Dye Fore, The Links and La Estancia – all designed by world-famous Pete Dye. Restaurants are similar at both resorts.  Both offer the Explorers Club for Kids.  Dreams Dominicus  Brand new resort and in 2016 488 rooms (however additional construction was underway) More contemporary style & decor Good beach area Rooms were very nice Preferred Club located in main lobby and adjacent to main pool & beach front Food was good Center plaza area with nighttime entertainment Main lobby is small, but outdoor bar off lobby is nice Dreams La Romana Originally built in 2003 & opened as Dreams La Romana in 2008 756 rooms Recently renovated and new preferred club adults only lounge & pool added  Rooms are more traditional Caribbean decor Grounds are very lush and tropical Good beach area food was good    Dreams Dominicus fact sheet.pdf Dreams La Romana fact sheet.pdf
    • My sister has done it but with the destination wedding, only super close family members and friends came since it was expensive and farther. It was great though.
