    Welcome and Congrats. Do you have your location picked?

    Riu Ochorios in Jamaica... But they are pissing me off right now because they have this new rule that they are no longer accepting children in the deluxe wing effective 11/2013. Of course, I'm booked for the deluxe wing and of course my wedding in in July 2014.... And of course I have children as well as other peeps in my crew... Ugh... I beyond pissed actually... Sorry for venting.... Lol... But yes Riu Ochorios in Jamaica hun... Lol

              HELP ladies!! I'm second guessing myself and my decision now and stressing out ....sad.gif undecided.gif cry.gif We each have a very big family and since we're paying for the wedding ourselves, we decided to have a small wedding - inviting only immediate family and our best friends. I told my mom last night and she was very disappointed - not angry but more sad. She's the eldest of all my aunts and uncles and I'm her first child getting married so she expected/wants me to have a big party where I invite everyone. On my side alone, it will be 60 people ... add in my FI's family, it will be over 120! We don't want to offend any relative by picking and choosing certain ones that we are closer to so we decided we won't invite anyone. I explained to my mom that we couldn't afford to have a big wedding and she even offered to give me money (mind you, she's a seamstress working in a factory in NYC that is practically a sweatshop so she makes NO money)  So now I'm feeling guilty that my mom really wants this that she is willing to give me the little money she does have... I know not everyone will go but I think most will surprise us and go. I'm not sure what to do... should we just chance it and invite everyone and put it upon them to see if they will make it or not?  Or should we just stick to our original plans and hope everyone understands ... We will invite everyone out to dinner when we get back from the wedding - it won't be the same as a big AHR or a typical Chinese wedding banquet so I'm not sure if that will satisfy my family ( who are pretty traditional)  I only see my relatives once a year at Christmas so we're not very close ... it's more about etiquette and tradition ...

              Don't second guess yourself. I find myself doing the same at times. It's hard not to feel bad especially with your mom wanting traditional bur she Will be there right? Do what you and FI want and can afford! Invite those who are in your lives. Or maybe if affordable invite a couple of people extra to make mom happy. Have a family style dinner gathering when you return.

                Wow that sucks! They can't accommodate you since your booked already? Do you have a TA who can maybe talk on your behalf?

                      that is sad, they should accomodate you. Luckily for me, i have no children attending. and that's the only reason why i chose the resort where i will be
