Freaking Out About My Date

Recommended Posts

After a year and a half of planning we finally booked our date for Aug 13, 2015. We chose August because it's a time of the year when most of my friends can have off and also because it was easier to go to a super nice hotel for a bit less. Now I'm second guessing myself that it will be too hot, I'm afraid of hurricanes, etc. I really need to stop with the over thinking and second-guessing. I just need someone to tell me that it will all be ok haha.

I was in Jamaica during hurricaine season. We actually went in late Sept/early Oct and we actually had a hurricaine while we were there. But don't worry because resorts know how to handle these situations. I was a little worried but they handled everything very well. There were weddings taking place that day and they just pushed them to another day. People there can accommodate for these things happening and they will have everything under control. Don't worry because you have no control over any of that anyway. Your date is booked now so just go with the flo. I am better at giving advice than taking it...lol I freak out and over think about things too. But my FI says to me that I freak out over things I have no control over.

 

There is always something. I booked my wedding for April and regardless I know it's going to be way hotter than I would want on my wedding day in a dress with trying to keep makeup from running down my face.

 

All these things that happen people tend to deal with it quite nicely and everything in the end ends up turning out perfect.

 

I have stressed over a lot so far and I haven't even started...lol

Yeah I need to chill and stop freaking out over things I can't control. Maybe I should have picked a different date? but too late now because the save the dates are out hahah. I also can never make up my mind about anything. I would be choosing a date until the day I die if I could haha.

Oh no! That's really a shame that you changed your date! Hurrican season doesn't start until June, and it's actually quite rare for them to hit that early in the season.

 

The peak time is generally August and September with sometimes going into early to mid-October. Of course there can be storms in July but again, they aren't that frequent.

As long as you know in advance and are prepared for the fact that it's going to be very hot! Then at least you'll be able to manage. The good thing is last year was about the quietest hurricane season in about 50 years, and they're predicting that this year will be the same. As long as we have an El Nino then it cuts the hurricanes in the Atlantic due to wind shear. So keep fingers crossed!!  And @@kcole123 is right. The resorts are well prepared to deal with them if one does come along. Depending on how much notice there is, which usually they have a pretty good idea, if it's too close to your wedding the airlines just won't go. They'll cancel flights but I've heard where they allow you to rebook with no penalties and so on.

 

All you can do is go with it! Hey - it would give you a wedding to remember!! lol Something to tell the grandchildren!!  It will all be fine.

true! It would be really too bad because the fiance really wanted a DW because of the unpredictable weather where we live. We bought insurance anyway and asked people to do the same. I'm really hoping that luck will be on our side, crossing fingers. At this point I guess it's not useful to worry when we're so far away from the date. Always easier said than done! haha

Well our travel agent was having trouble finding anything at the list of destinations we had and she kept coming back with only packages from the standard places like Dominican Republic, Mexico, Cuba and Jamaica... and to be honest with you, those 4 countries are at the bottom of my list.

I feel they are all so played out and I can't even begin to tell you just how many weddings I've been to Punta Cana...

 

We wanted a little more of an exotic island so I figured I would rather change the date and be married somewhere I truly love and want to be at than to settle with a destination I deep down didn't really want to be at.

 

So The change occured more cuz we couldn't get packages (from Toronto) in May that catered to what we really wanted.

I'm sure it will all be okay in the end.  I'm not too sure about your destination, but I heard that when it comes to hurricanes they are more likely to happen in September and October.  My fiance and I are planning a September wedding date and I have the same concerns you do.  As far as I know destinations that are at risk of hurricanes have really good procedures to deal with them.  I'm planning to get married in Cuba and I read that tourists are given high priority during hurricane evacuation procedures.  I took comfort in knowing that our interest was being thought of and the situation will be dealt with by people who have been extensively trained to deal with hurricanes.  

 

I also worry about the heat too.  I know that time of the year can be very humid.  We chose September because it seemed to be most convenient for our friends and family.

    • It’s been years... and I’m now searching for the same in Montego Bay or Negril. Did anyone ever have any luck finding? 
    • Hello, I'm new to this site. I got engaged already and get married by next year. I have some doubts regarding our dating destination. Hope you will help me. Thank You!
    • Hello everyone,
      Well, this upcoming valentine's day is special for me because I got engaged and planning to spend the day with my fiance. I'm planning to give her an ethical jumpsuit.

      Other than that I have been searching the internet for some nice discounted coupons and searched among my friends and found different sites. Now, we are looking forward to that wonderful day. We searched a lot and found out, Escape The City. Orangeville is a great place for a day trip or weekend gateway from Toronto.
      Theatre Orangeville is offering a weekend package that includes 2 tickets to a Live performance at the theatre, Premium Overnight Accommodations at Best Western Plus Orangeville Inn and Suites and $75 Downtown Wine and Dine Voucher which is valid at select Downtown restaurants, and Free Entry to the scenic Trails & Bridges of Island Lake.

      We are so excited and eagerly waiting for that day.
      If anyone has got any other suggestions for the venue, kindly share your thoughts/ideas.
      Thank You!
       
    • Please tell me, the best wedding venue in Saskatoon, SK.
    • Hey everyone! Like the others here, I'm interested in wedding reception, venue and all related steps & stuff. Starting with my first and the most important note is that we're international couple and we need to think of bilingual wedding. So the first thing we need to think of is whether it will be interpretation or 2 different venue coordinators, sermons and stuff? What is your experience, what could be the best and affordable solution? From googling the issue I've found this Interactio app team ( describing possible solution here  http://blog.interactio.io/case-study-weddings )Basically they offer to hold the venue in the main language, additionally providing simultaneous interpretation online to other quest's mobile phones. Looks like really easy and creative idea. What about the others? How did you solve this kind of obstacle? Any additional advises would be very welcomed here
