Engaged And Overwhelmed!

Recommended Posts

Hello there! I recently got engaged to the love of my life. We've been together for almost 15 years now (May 10). Yeah, I know... it took him that long while I patiently waited. But on the other hand, we were both busy with education, career, etc., plus, we are doing everything backwards anyway: got a house, cats. So, it's more of a formality now. However, all our family and friends are exhilarated and cannot wait for the big day which we haven't even set yet. 


So, I just started to look and I am already overwhelmed. I really want to have a budget friendly, stress free destination wedding with our closest and dearest people. So, now my head spins as to whether to do it in Mexico Playa or Cancun areas or in Dominican republic? What month should we pick? And I probably need a wedding planner/agent as well.


Any suggestions or inputs are greatly appreciated.

its all very overwhelming.. lol I used destinationswedding.com they showed me a bunch of resorts ( all inclusive ) and the more options I saw the harder it is to make a decision of where do I really want to get married... anyways I ended up choosing Royalton Riviera Maya, and thanks to my wedding coordinator she made it super smooth,... just be aware of the prices of the packages and how many people does it include and the reviews of that particular resort... cant go wrong with any of them im sure.. anyways good luck!

    • Greetings. I'm really confused because my younger sister's marriage is fixed. Now the date is fixed for April 15th. We are planning to conduct a function only with minimal members. I neec to find out a best wedding venue or organizer. I need your advice which will be really helpful. Thank you
    • I’m sorry but I just noticed this original post was from a few years ago. 
    • Hi girl, I was in the the exact same situation as you. I’ was a second timer too,  at the time my daughter was 16 when we had our DW. He also had a daughter from a previous marriage who was 28 at the time with a 3 year old son who we’re residing with us. His daughter was in no financial shape whatsoever to pay her way to Fiji. My husband said it meant so much to him for her to be there. We argued for months about us funding her way to go with us. I felt like the evil step mother too but put my foot down. It almost got to the point that we were just not going to go but finally my fi gave in and said we would  not pay for her. Talk about stress! We went with my daughter and a few friends and got married. I could see the sadness in my husbands eyes during the ceremony.It all hit me right there. He wanted his daughter there so bad that it crushed him. In fact none of his family were there and the friends I mentioned were all my friends. I thought to myself, why did I do this to this wonderful man who is so good to me and my daughter. He rarely asked for things for himself. I felt awful. He did his best to hide it from me. It’s the biggest regret of my life girl. He never got over that his daughter was not there and it destroyed me. I wish I could go back in time and do it all over again. I allowed $3,500 that we easily could afford, ruin what I wanted to be the happiest day of his life. If you can afford it pay for it, do it. It’s not worth the pain.It was  not worth doing that to him just to prove a point. This was 17 years ago and it bothered him for the rest of his life. He passed away last October and I still cannot forgive myself. That’s my two cents - Shel  
    • Hi everyone! Newbie here. I've been trying to search for templates for passport invitations. I saw a couple on Etsy but not many options. I was wondering if anybody knew of any other sites that have printable templates for passport invitations? Thanks in advance!
