The extra people he decides to travel with will NOT be attending my wedding... THERE IS NO WAY. and that's not even the problem, I am pretty sure that my fiance is going to want to go hang out with the "boys" and there goes our honeymoon. I guess that is the bad part about all this. 

Maybe I should look into switching resorts after the wedding ughhh.

ugh!!!  why should YOU have to switch the resort you purposely chose for your wedding. The friend and his boys should go to a different resort!!!

Jessica-You absolutely need to strongly consider switching resorts after the wedding. If you start now, you can do your research and start looking for great deals. Nip these issues in the bud right away!

 

 

I have another option too that I am not sure. I have $600 (each) voucher from United airlines that I can't use towards the wedding because United doesn't really do flights to Jamiaca... so I was considering booking a trip for a few months after the wedding somewhere else and call that our "honeymoon" ... I would just have to sell that idea to my fiance lol

I wish people were understanding. Our parents decided to just stay 3 or 4 nights because they were considerate of about the honeymoon but the friends are selfish

I might be the only one who doesn't really care if my guests stay as long as me. I can't exactly ask people to pay to go, take time off of their job and say "umm hey so you know...it's also our honeymoon" my Hispanic family would be deeply offended. But again, maybe it doesn't bother me as much because we've already planned for a delayed honeymoon later on and I sold this DW as a huge family vacation anyway.

How much info is everyone putting in their invitations?

 

I have a website which I want people to use more so I dont want to repeat all the same info (I have sections  for "resort info", "travel info", "things to do in Jamaica" etc. (or should I repeat??)

 

We don't have a set day or time for the welcome cocktail reception nor know when to plan a group excursion which makes me reluctant to put an "itinerary" in writing in the formal invitation. I have it all TBD on the site.

 

So far, I just the basic we invite you to ... date...location ...rsvp by ...

For those of you who are still getting out save the dates and invites (like me!), here's a neat little service that I've been using:

https://www.postable.com.  You just send your friends a personalized link and they fill in all of the information (address, spouse name, etc.)  It's so easy, and one of my friends said it was very straightforward, easy to read and very cool.  (And the best part is that it's free.99!! LOL)

 

i want to thank you! this is a great tool!

True. I did not invite everyone in my family. I invited my uncles on my mom's side because I grew up with them and they are like parents to me. As far as my father's side goes, two are lucky to get an invite (out of 9) so that should tell you a lot lol. I want the people I love there and I am not inviting people JUST BECAUSE either. This costs money and some people aren't worth my time or money. (I sound so mean lol)

    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
