I'm so glad you have a great TA and that she was able to make you feel confident with your decisions. So did you finally make your final decision on Moon Palace?

And your wedding band looks gorgeous! It matches beautifully with your engagement ring. I have a great jeweler who actually custom made both mine and my fiancé's wedding bands. He's super easy to talk to and very knowledgeable. I will pm you his info when I get home

    @Wafflesmom Yes!! We're booking at Moon Palace :) Our deposits are due Wednesday but our wedding planner is gathering rates for John and I on a 8 day stay and a 10 day stay. We're planning on going down 1 day early to set-up and stay 2 days after our guests as a "mini-moon" :D and YES-- I would love the contact of your jeweller! Thanks for all the help!

      @jes0912 Congrats on your engagement!  Your planning thread is great so far!  What a great price for your ring!  I never thought to but I'll have to check Winners out as well.


      Sorry if I missed it - When are you planning to get married?


      Looking forward to reading more!

        @deecol @Danielle1 Thanks for all the support Ladies! 


        Quick Little Update/Mini Rant: 


        So-- I'm really starting to feel like things are coming together. Our quote expires tomorrow and our wedding planner is just getting together an 8 & 10 day quote for John and I so for a little "mini-moon". We've spoken to most of our family and mentioned our plans and they all seem super excited even with the trip costing so much (approx. $2300 from Vancouver, LOVE YOU ALL!)-- minus my MOH/older sister (married 2 years ago, just bought a new house, with a baby on the way). I can only imagine that she must be stressed as well but she's expressed that she might not be able to come down for the 7 days, worried about her vacation time/mat leave, asking if we can get married on the Sunday or later in the week instead, thinks that guests won't want to stay for the full 7 days (...because she can't) and etc...


        I'm honestly not worrying about this at all, and approaching this with the "it is what it is" attitude. I'm sure she will make it down either way even if it's a shortened trip... But at the end of the day, you can't please everyone! So we're just going to move forward with our original plans and what John and I had planned for everyone in the first place. As disappointing as it is to be getting so much push back from my sister. Our wedding is our special day and something that we're putting 1000000% of our efforts into making the best week for all of our guests.


        Remember ladies-- this is YOUR day. :) #dontstress #cantpleaseeveryone lol

        Ohh no! I'm glad you are letting it be and not worrying too much - that's a great attitude to have because I can say that I haven't been as generous to myself during our wedding and I have stressed a lot. I had something similar when we started planning too and I had an aunt who refused to come because we chose December. She asked us to move it to another month and when we said no.. it's our day, she backed out. I let it be, but my mother was really hurt by her sister's actions. It's very true that you can't please everyone and that's why I never bothered changing my date or adjusting my wedding because of what someone else wanted.

        Oh I'm so sorry you're already experiencing this so early in your planning. I admire your positive attitude. We've all been there and unfortunately you can't please everyone. But that's the thing ppl don't get, you don't have to please them, it's your wedding day, not theirs. I get where your sister is coming from with all the new expenses in her life but you guys are giving ample notice for ppl to save! Hope it all works out for you :)

          Sorry you are already going thru the trials and tribulations of destination wedding planning!


          Shawn's dad dug his heals in HARD and we stood our ground.  Good for you to do that as well, as hard as it much be with it being your sister.      You will find that people will ask you to change your plans, so you do, then they back out.  Went thru a lot of that before we set the date.   You can only do so much, so keep your head up!


          Married on 2015/01/21 at the Grand Sirenis Riviera Maya with 43 guests in attendance   :)
