So sad and need to vent

Recommended Posts

I am so sorry to hear that. That really stinks and is probably so hard to do. What are you options? Have you checked with your vendors to see if they have availabilities perhaps the month before or after? You still have plenty of time to get replacement STD's out if you are moving it up.

This is never a fun thing to deal with! I'm sorry! I would say the same as the other girls...try and change it close to the original date. Hopefully no one has booked their trip yet and it won't be a problem I am sure....but do it soon!

 

You will want all your family there that can make it! :)

Oh no! It will all work out sweetie...

I guess I wouldn't want to do it without my father either, so that is understandable.

As others said maybe you can only move it a week or even days.

Thanks girls for all of your support. I haven't been on the forum because it is just too depressing to think about the wedding. I just don't even want to deal with it. I know in the end it will all work out for the best. Thanks again!!

I am surprised that FFIL can't get a waiver for the overseas work thing for his son's wedding -- but that being said -- and assuming that is not an option, then I think truly the only thing you can do is bite the bullet and make the changes.

 

I would insert a note with the invitations addressing the date change.

 

If there is a penalty for any of the deposits, I would ask FFIL to help cover those penalty costs.

 

But being sure your parents are in attendance if they want to be is optimal, and the right thing to do.

 

It will all work out!!!

I agree with LaLa, in the grand scheme of things, you are still with the love of your life and are only postponing the date. When you look back at this years from now, both of you will laugh and remember the good times, not the bad!!! It will be a blessing no matter when you set the date!

I completely agree. While this whole situation sucks, if it were reversed and were your dad who couldn't make it, you'd want him there. Sadly sometimes parents misbehave or dont do what we want them to do (i'm dealing with this myself). We gals here all understand the need for a perfect wedding day and for everything to go the way we want, thats what this forum is here for. Your FI should definitely bring up with his father about covering costs of reprinted invitations or penalties from vendors for changing the date. But I think you may be surprised at how nice people (vendors) can be when you explain the situation. And if your FFIL wants to get in your good graces and his son's, he'll do whatever he can to help remedy the situation.

I'm so sorry you're going through this, and we're all here to listen and help out.smile03.gif sending you a big hug!

    • I admire brave brides. I'm generally afraid of a wedding. Breaking outdated rules is cool. You're good😇
    • My wedding date is set for the next April. The ceremony will be held on the beach too. I chose a dress style but not sure about the accessories like a crown and the need for a warm cape. The open back wedding dresses https://www.cathytelle.com/category/wedding-dresses/?filter_back=open&query_type_back=or  help me to choose, please! I like the third dress just with the location on the beach, like I'm dreaming about. In case of bad weather, I need to pick up a cape, so where can I find it? Only a new thing will fit, cause my grany is very superstitious (( I will be grateful for the web-addresses of jewelry shop with good reputation
    • Hello, I'm looking to have feedback about decorations for your wedding at Barcelo Maya Palace. We are getting married in Dec 2020, and I tried to get info from WC for what it's included as decoration for mint breeze or Straberry Package. It seems to be normal to pay extra for everything, but before to go further, i would like to now what basically come included?? I'm looking to know what is included for table decorations (center, if it's looking the same on when you go at a restaurant a la carte, table sheet white or colored), huppa for beach wedding (white or color), deco for chair, etc? Did you had to pay an extra to bring your own decorations? Did you pay an extra to have your reception in a beach restaurant? And what about a beach reception? Are the lights are included ?your help will be really appreciated!    Thank you

    • Hello wedding review perusers, If you are considering Romantic Planet Vacations as your wedding planner/coordinator... Stop turn around and RUN!!! We got married in Playa del Carmen, Mexico on July 9th 2019 and had the worst experience dealing with this company.    We had Vanessa and she was terrible with her customer service edicate.  There were several times when she was unresponsive and unavailable without any prior notice. We had several emails excusing herself for her absence.     First off, this company works on commissions from the vendors so they are not really working for you but to set up weddings that will profit them the most. Because of this, our entire experience dealing with the hotel and reception staff regarding anything room related was awful. Their continued response was you didn’t pay us any money so any and all changes have to be made by them (which ALWAYS INCURRED ADDITIONAL FEES). And guess what Vanessa was not helpful and unresponsive.    The $1000 Air flight credit is a SCAM. Thats incorrect for me to say. What I should say is please make sure you read all of the fine print very, very carefully. They will do everything in their power to not give you all the necessary details until they are no longer responsible for giving you the flight credit. Vanessa was going to set up the return flight for the credit but she stopped returning phone calls and emails so how were we supposed to book it without a person to book it with.    In short, Vanessa said she was going to take care of a lot of things that she didn’t. She would not respond to our phone calls and the hotels phone calls when situations came up during our wedding stay, leaving us to deal with the hotel. We contacted their management and to see if they would want to rectify anything before posting our negative reviews and to put it bluntly they could give 2 Sh***.   It is very difficult to express how terrible the experience was in a short review without seeming petty. I am giving our wedding email in hopes that any person that wants a better picture of what our experience was can email us and we are more than happy to share any of the correspondences between us. To help us filter through the Spam all email should contain the following subject line: Please helps with your experience!!!   Thank you Oliver And Claudia  Oliver.and.Claudia2003@gmail.com
