I also worry about seeing other weddings on my wedding day, I don't want to feel like I'm on a conveyer belt ha.

    Glad we thought the same about the 4pm slot, do you have a photographer in mind yet? Again there seems to be so many options and none of them are cheap!

    I converted your Canadian $ price, if I can get a similar quote for my £ I will be happy as it's about what we've told people as an estimate. Like you, we can't afford to pay for people to attend but are hoping most will treat it as their yearly holiday and then we get all our guests there. I think if we don't make the 75 room nights we will take advantage of the dinner included in our package and find a place to chill out with our guests as it will be a far more intimate wedding.

    Sorry to be nosey, you're a little further ahead of me with the planning so I'm intrigued; have you had many people pay their deposits yet, and have you had any guests you thought were guarantees who are not so definite now the time has come to pay? That's my biggest worry for now and making it difficult to budget. I have asked our friends to be honest and if they can't come, it's absolutely no problem, but could they let me know early? So far everyone is still on board but I am braced for drop outs.

    Thanks for your help!

     

    Dont worry about being nosey, that is what this forum is for! haha.  It is perfect that our dates our so close so we can share tips and tricks!
    I invited about 60 people being realistic after talking to my guests and giving them some time to look over our wedding wedbiste with all the details, I am thinking there is going to be about 20-25 people who are forsures.  We have only had about 5 or 6 couples make their deposits but I kind of expect a bunch to do it at the last minute (Our group reservation block with the travel agent is valid until mid May and the guests have until then to pay to secure their spots).  There have been quite a few people who are not able to make it which has been pretty dissapointing but I chatted to my fiance about it and we realized that the big day is about our love and it doesnt matter who is there or not, we just have to go with the flow and let it all pan out. It is a bit frusterating not being able to get forsure yes's and no's from people now but once the May deposit deadline comes I will have a pretty good idea about numbers because they deposit was only 200.00 and it secures the group pricing.  I cant imagine many people not wanting to snag the good deal early.  Anyone who hasnt paid there deposit then are probably not planning to come.

      I agree Krista. You would think that since it's destination it'll be a tad easier! WRONG! Its all that more stressful because you are at the mercy of other people at the resort LOL.

       

      Congratulations - my future husband's name is Chris as well. And he's awesome! I know your Chris is too as well!
