    My FI was not all involved until this weekend when we finally sat down and compared resort packages and listed extra costs etc to see how much this weeding will cost and he is shocked! he had no clue and now we're not sure if we can even afford this! :(:(

     

    We both want something small but we're disagreeing on certain splurges. My #1 thing is photography but he can't believe it will cost up to 5k for a good photography package. He doesn't care about flowers/chairs/chuppas/sashes etc. he just wants his parents and sister there on the beach

     

    He keeps saying "we don't need that, we don't need that etc"

     

    sigh ...

He's super picky on photography and is all like " I need to read and look up all the djs" . Blah blah. " I like those passport invites" . Probably wants to be more involved than I'd like... But, everything is for the future. I'm like.. hELLOOO. We need to give ppl the heads up. Especially with a 110 person invite list. :0(

Aughhhhhh

    I have to either wait til he is in the mood to talk or trick him into listen to me when I want to ask him something and he isn't in the mood. Pouting works - but can't do it all the time cause that just annoys him HAHA

    One day when he was giving me the "yeah yeah yeah" I stopped talking - waiting a minute then said "do you want me to just plan everything by myself so I don't have to be bothered with trying to talk to you and get your opinion - cause that would be easier for me OR do you want to have a say in Your wedding - I just don't want to bother you if I don't have to" I was sure to say this with no attitude so he didn't get defensive. his reply "I want to be involved!" so I told him fine and that I will run things by him before I proceed but if he doesn't have time to listen I will just move on in whatever way I want...... he hasn't given me the "yeah yeah yeah" since.

    They need to feel like it was their idea - so I know he thinks I ask him because he told me he wants to be involved.... I know he still isn't always listening.. so if I need to I'll pout

    He did actually ask me one day "don't you have friends to talk to about this stuff" So if yours says that tell him YES - BDW so don't bother me while I'm on in.. even if it is "all the time" HAHAH

      was just talking to one of my coworkers and apparently there's these things called wedding loans? Anyone ever look into that?

We are trying to squeeze in a trip to see some of the resorts next month. Plus we have a loooooong time planned trip to New Zealand and Australia in October. Been planning and saving for a year . It's MY DREAM trip! Also why I haven't thrown in the wedding towel. He's sucking it up for me and spending a mini fortune to go. :0/

        wow!!! you have a lot going on - good for you to be treating youself with the trip! (and so jealous you get to check out the resorts ahead of time!)

            I say if you want to and can afford to splurge Go for it.

            Get a quote for two options and then figure out what comes with the more expensive option - see if it feels like it is worth it :) It is your wedding after all heheheh

            I also feel bad for the guests ... our #1 choice is Secrets which isn't totally over the top but is pricier than other Jamaica options. 

             

            But at the same time, it's our wedding and we feel that is the best option for us .. now hopefully, we can get a date ...

( he's so spoiled now he was like " we are going to buy a flight? ) hahaha. I gave him " the look" no Hun , we are going to go Standby to our own wedding and Pray we get on . If not ! People can just party without us". Lol!

              But we will probably non rev back. Every dollar helps. He'll that can even pay for my fire show. :0)
              the room I have to decide on. Probably wont do much more than an upgraded room. On our honeymoon whenever that will be , I'll go big!

              LOL, that's so funny! I can't imagine being on standby holding your dress as your carry-on just waiting to be called!

               

              I have a feeling most resorts will upgrade you when you check in since you're getting married there ... anyone else think the same?

                I would hope not to use it but it's a nice backup if it comes down to it!

Supposedly fi's grandfather is payong for our honeymoon to st. Vincent, since the fiance is from there and we'll head over to the grenadines but we'll see.

                  We're also looking at possibly just buying a condo/coop since it comes out about the same as rent here in nyc smh

                  honeymoon in st vincents??? amazing! i would love to check out the smaller islands!

                      we were debating back and forth about an AI or not and in the end, we figured AI was just easier for everybody. don't have to think, just eat, drink, tan, swim and repeat!
