Opinion's Desperatly Needed!

Recommended Posts

Jackie, I also voted for #2, for similar reasons as already stated. I would want my parents there and my best friend- besides that, who cares. Also, you can always take a honeymoon later and that means two trips! Woohoo!

That totally is unfair about the vacation. I don't understand how the new owner thinks that is acceptable- is it going to change any time soon? Is this just something temporary? It's awful!

Do you love your friends and can't live without them or would this be done mostly to please them? Would you feel like your wedding was complete if it was just the two of you?

Do you guys have to decide yet?

And yeah, that new owner sounds like he needs some business sense knocked into him!

This is truly my problem... I just dont know. One day I think I have made a final decision and think about all the good aspects about that decision and the next day I completely change my mind and decide that the other option is the way to go.

LOL. No I guess I dont NEED to decide yet per say, but I'm a planning control freak and we are going to be customizing the ring after the holidays and then engaged by the end of the winter and god dammit with all this planning and research I should at least have what type of wedding and the location down by the time we get engaged.

And YUP, the new owner is just some very wealthy man who wanted to tell his friends he owned a Harley Davidson shop. He knows nothing about bikes or business.

Also, are you freaking kidding me about that vacation situation? Hello?! That new owner is rediculously stupid thinking that a 16 year veteran is going to be happy with losing an entire month of paid vacation. WOW!
Christa, I love your new signature!!!

Thanks girls!!!!!

I think you all are right. Besides I suppose having a honeymoon to plan after the wedding will be fun. I really couldnt imaging the wedding without Ryans parents there. His whole family is wonderfull and our close friends have known us both for years now and I couldnt really picture the wedding without them either. I think I was being a little selfish wanting the really fancy room at the other resort and figuring I could go without any wedding guests to get it. Wow reading that really makes me look bad. I'm not selfish I swear. I was just having a moment.

Yes, I actually designed it myself! Imagine that wink.gif Anyway, not to totally get off point here, but I did it in powerpoint & then converted it to a jpeg file. Pretty handy stuff. If anyone wants help doing this, send me a PM!

See, there you go getting all Martha on us again! Was it really hard to do? I'm not the most computer savvy one in the group, that's for sure!

    • Hi everyone! My name is Erin and I am a covid bride. My dream was to have a destination wedding. I wanted it easy, breezy and relaxed, with a whole weekend to celebrate with family and friends. I found the perfect venue, Key Largo Lighthouse Beach! (See http://www.keylargolighthouse.com ). The reviews are amazing, and my experience with the venue has been nothing but great, I have emails to prove it! My wedding was going to be four days of pure bliss, on a private beach with amazing beach houses for my bridal party to stay in (the houses can hold 25 people comfortably!) They even gave us a hugeeee discount because of covid! We planned the whole thing, including catering, desserts, an open bar, dj and photographer. But then covid hit. After moving our date back 3 times, expending our engagement far longer than we wanted, we decided enough was enough. We decided to do a small, local ceremony and reception on August 1st, and we are now married! It wasn’t my dream wedding, but it ended up being perfect, even though it was planned in two weeks! But now we’ve paid for two weddings, and we don’t feel like we need another reception. We want that money to pay off student loans, or put a down payment on a house! Or even for our future child’s college fund. However, we cannot get our money back from the venue, per the contract. Finally to the point of my post, the only way we can get a refund is by finding someone to take our place. No one would pay us directly, it would be the normal way for whoever takes over, you’d pay the venue. You’d also get our discount so you’d save money. If anyone knows someone who wants an amazing destination/beach wedding in 2021, please let me know! I’ll give you more details directly.
    • I hope you have chosen choosen 3d dress too, it looks the best. When my friend was having a Bachelorette Party and we had to find nice looks for the night, it was like a nightmare. Because 4 girls like 4 different styles and it was hard to find the best one. There are a lot of great articles on this topic you can find on the web https://storyofthebride.com/2020/bachelorette-party-looks-that-will-define-the-night/ . But still we had decided on our brain storm that black and white outfits would have the best looking. It was the only one look that everyone shared. So we had not too many options.
    • Vaughan is a city in Ontario, Canada, where my sister got married last February, before the pandemic. This wasn’t a pre-planned wedding. Since her husband hails from there, Vaughan was chosen as the destination for their wedding. It was a great decision they had made because that helped us create memories that I will cherish forever in my life. The attitude and the approach of the locals are so warm that I felt like I was in my hometown. An outdoor event venue was chosen because the climate was exceptional, decorated with lights and flowers. We couldn’t stop ourselves from clicking photographs, and everything was arranged perfectly, making the event all hassle-free. The reception ceremony was neatly done with mouthwatering food preparations. It was fun to have a wedding there and it was an event well organized. If any of you are looking for a destination wedding in Canada, Vaughan is a prudent choice. I have heard Montreal is nice but this was a great experience. Now it’s not the right time folks. Stay safe at your places. Let this pass and then we shall think about such events.
    • Hey! That's an interesting thought. It's important to wear masks though the pandemic wave is being contained in many parts of the world. Keep safe.
