The tough part is, is that some people you just won't see. We had people literally go off and do their own thing every day! They treated it like their own vacation - as they should - but that means we only saw them in passing. Ie - husbands brother and sister in law. So while we got to speak to everyone at some point, some we just didn't get to spend time with. We always made sure to talk to everyone as we saw them though. Also people realize it's your wedding and know you are busy -- we had people not ask much of us because they thought this. While true on the wedding day, not so much for the week. Unfortunately we also had the drama girl and people avoiding us because of her (haha wish they knew we were avoiding her too )I have no regrets about the week as we did the best we could given people were all over - some people left the resort daily!! But I do feel bad about the wedding reception itself. But I guess that's why the week long trips are great. You have 8 days to talk not just 8 hours ack!!! Just do the best you can.
I was just talking to a friend over the weekend about this and telling him that I'm already stressing out about spending time with everyone. He said that when he traveled back home to Guatemala he had this long list of people he wanted to see. He said for some he only had about 15 minutes, but he made sure to have a one on one with them and they were super appreciative of it, not matter how long it was. That made me think that maybe we're too hard on ourselves and literally expect the impossible (which is to spend a lot of time with each guest) but people will be happy to get your full attention even if it's for a short period of time. Everyone I've talked to says the same thing, they know it's a very busy week for you and you're trying your best .
@veryvalentine that turned out really well! Good job
