    People are going to give their opions whether you want them or not, so show only the people that you want their opions about it!!!  everyone's taste is different, but its not their day.  I also had this problem with an in-law that is very free with her opion, but take what she says and think about the points that she is making and then decide if the cons out weigh the pros....

Then we were being rude and tacky with the honeymoon registry we picked out, because it basically asks for money and we should do a traditional store registry. Then the website I made was wrong and I had to rewrite everything to fit what they wanted it to be. And now my STD's are wrong too. It's just getting to be too much for me, but I still try to consider their point. That's why I'm not really sure if they have a valid point about my postcard idea or if I'm just not wanting to change my ideas out of spite because everything else I have done is wrong and inappropriate... lol

       

      Just needed some insight, thank you.

       

      Yikes! In that case, I would do things the way you want to and not give them a preview. If they don't like the postcard idea when they get it in the mail, it will be too late to nix the idea, so they'll just have to deal.

       

      It's polite to want to please everyone, but you can't and won't, so it's best to please yourself and not have regrets. You can take another person's opinion into consideration, but unless its your fiancĀ©'s, it shouldn't carry the same weight as yours.

      Yes, I am learning to try and keep the FIL's out of the loop... lol They call every other day for updates though, so this week I'm just saying I've been too busy to get anything done. Hopefully my FI and I will find the right balance of info to share with them so they think they are in the loop, without letting them in on what's really going on... lol

          Just wanted to jump in the convo here... I see it's been awhile since anyone posted.  I tried to start up something for St. Lucia 2014 Brides with little response.  I would like to get some connections - I have been checking out post for lots of things like Save the Dates and Welcome Bags - while there is lots of good info its lots of old info.. 

           

          Sooo.. is anyone out there?

           

          : )

            Hi all,

             

            I feel so BEHIND in planning since our date in Dec 6, 2014.  I am looking at Riu in Ochos Rios, Jamaica.  Any suggestions that you all might have are welcomed!

                @kellyw33 - How are you?  Have you booked a venue yet?  Riu in Ochos Rios, Jamaica seems to be a popular place, based on what I've read on BDW.com - I can't be much help with Jamaica - I've never been ...  but I'd love to share ideas.

                  Rayn-I responded to you on the other 2014 thread, but congratulations again! When I was thinking about a wedding in St. Lucia, my friend recommended his friend who owns Dreamy Weddings.  They plan weddings in St. Lucia and quite a few other Caribbean Islands, and the main planner seems to be well regarded. There is also Awesome Caribbean Weddings, who also get high marks for their wedding planning services.  I hope this helps!

                    Hey BrownSugarBride,

                     

                    I also responded to you in the other post before I saw this.... Thanks for the info : )  I will check it out.   I think I am going to go with Sandals for everything - but I haven't booked anything yet..  Hopefully this weekend I will get time to do all that!  

                     

                    May! eek - you are under a year ... hahaha  I saw something the other day that said how many days until my wedding and I was like holy wow Thats it?!?!?  Obviously I have plenty of time - it just made it seem soon seeing it in number of days!
