@acw271011 Trust me, deep down, I agree with everyone. I guess a part of me feels like they are coming all the way down to Jamaica for us, and if they would've RSVP earlier, we would have had to pay the $80 per person for the dinner since we are over our package limit.

What's so ironic, is that you read how this happens to other brides, but I never thought it would happen to me since I sent out our STD 15 months out. Now I realize, to some people, it doesn't matter how much notice you give them, they are still going to do it in their time.

Leave for tropical paradise in 10 days!! Woohoo!!

@RandL2015 OMG its about that time! I know your wedding will be absolutely gorgeous! I can't believe the time is flying by like it is. Slow down! Lol
Why am I already having anxiety attacks and not sleeping and I still have some time to go...lmao ill be honest I'm second guessing just about everything now..I know it's just nerves but Jesus please be a fence!
Anywho we are starting to get RSVPs back but at the same time I'm getting a lot of people questioning why I've chosen this resort .ie) ppl saying .it's expensive , are there other hotels cheaper etc etc blah blah blah...people are so funny! I just would never. If u can't go then you can't go. Calgon on take me away!
I'm sure everyone will go well and I'm looking forward to hearing how your big day went! Just remember to have fun and most importantly (which I keep trying to tell myself-and need to listen to myself) a wedding is only 4 hours out of my life...don't stress the small stuff...enjoy your new hubby! ;) And have fun and soak up the sun!

@KG1990 Thank you so much.
What's so funny is that friends ask me am I nervous. I think I am more nervous of my guest not doing their part.
My MOH gets so many junk emails that she doesn't check her emails. I always have to call her 2-3 times to say I sent you something, check your email.
My cousin who is notorious for missing her flight is arriving 3 hours before the wedding starts.
My son who is a little forgetful and has a mild learning disability, I'm hoping he doesn't leave something behind.

I think I am MORE NERVOUS about making sure everyone and everything arrives in time for the wedding.

I just have to keep telling myself, that as long as my Fi and I are there with the minister and a witness, Everything is going to be Beautiful. :-)

I requested everyone to wear all white attire for the wedding. Mind you everyone had 18 months to find something. Why are people calling me and saying that they can't find anything white in the stores NOW. The wedding is NEXT WEEK!! You had ALL YEAR TO SHOP!!

So, I just said forget it. Wear what you want. I'm tired and sick of some of my guests already!!

Just need to focus on marrying my baby.

@RandL2015 I totally feel your pain. I'm having a lot of that right now with my guests and we still have a month an a half to go. Like family who is supposed to record a my processional music. They were so excited to do it. They got the sheet music before we even set a date. A year later I think they've had one rehearsal. sigh...

 

Sorry you had to change your plans for your day - that sucks!

 

Like you said just focus on your and your fiancé and it will all be amazing! It's coming up so soon!!

Thanks @snswedding2016.
Can't wait to leave, just so I csn be unplugged for a couple of days before the guests arrive.

I sent a Pre-travel newsletter to everyone, and EVERYDAY I get questions that I already addressed in the newsletter. Why don't people just read or Google the answer. EVERYTHING about the resort and Jamaica are online.

I realize I can't worry and take care of Adults anymore.
Just want to crawl into my beach chair, sip a cocktail and let the sun shine down on my face.
Love this forum...Venting is allowed...

I just decided to pull up my old posts, and didn't realize I didn't post anything since we have been back. Wow, time sure flies.

THANK YOU to ALL of the BRIDES on this AWESOME Site!!

My wedding was ABSOULTELY Lovely!! It did rain, but overall EVERYTHING turned out BEAUTIFUL!!

Beginning with TA Babs, from Wright Travel Agency. She was AMAZING!! So patient and my guests loved her. A+++
Secrets Wild Orchid resort, big enough so you still have some privacy, but small enough to see your guests having a great time. A+++

Here are some pictures from our WONDERFUL WEDDINGCATION!!

Happy Planning Ladies!! It's all so worth it!! It goes by fast, so enjoy every minute of it. 😊
