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.

Supposedly all the employees are getting yearly reviews in January when things are "going to change". We shall see.

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 All, I have just gotten in touch with a TA and we are in the process of getting quotes for our wedding in either DR or Mexico. Now she said something that I wasn't  aware of and I wonder how others handled this as I just can't believe that we are the only one in this situation. We feel we are asking our guests already a for a lot to come a long way to our wedding (our guests come from Canada and Germany) and there are a few that wouldn't want to miss it (like my partner's brother) but they just don't have a lot of money. Our budget doesn't allow us to chip in for flights and accommodation so we are basically asking everyone to save up money for our big event. Now we are planning the wedding at a resort that I know some of our guests can't (or don't want to) pay for. We were hoping to find a place where guests have the option to book themselves a cheaper hotel or an AirBnB nearby and only come to our wedding. Our TA told us that the resort might not allow that or only for a limited percentage of our guests. That is terrible news for us! I think that a good 50% of our guests will also stay at the resort for one, two or even three weeks but how can we 'force' other people to stay at the hotel of OUR choice?  I get that the resort would charge a fee for day guests and obviously we expect to pay for food and drinks but I didn't know that we would have to agree to a certain percentage of the guests staying at the resort. I don't feel we have control over that. How do others handle that?
    • Getting married in 10/2020, anyone had a recent wedding here? Asking for some help
    • Hi, I know prices change year to year- Anyone have 2019 or possibly 2020 prices? 
    • My husband and I was married 18 years ago. My husband hates dressing up and truly I had no idea to that he feels embarrassed in dress attire. I told him the only way I would marry him was in tux jacket and pants shirt. Well he wore it but after wedding hyperventilating and nearly passed out. He felt totally humiliated and had horrible memories of our wedding. He has never allowed me to show our wedding photos to anyone and simply it ruined the wedding and has caused tremendous amount of issues over the years due to the fact I made him wear it. He now wants to redo the wedding to wash out our wedding memories and create new. Wants briadsmaid groomsmen everything. He wished he had simply went against my will wore something different. So wants to redo everything included everyone and what they wore but change what he wore. Me dressed in my original wedding dress. I so wish I had never posed him into a suit on our wedding day.its been 18 year nightmare.  He simply wishes to completely recreate a memory. My question is it okay to completely redo our wedding exactly the way it was except what he wears? This has been 18 years of hell he xant get over it. He cant even stand to look at photos and we have never watched the video. Thank you all Sarah 
    • Hi! How did everything turn out? I just booked mine there for next November and would love any tips you have!
