Opinion's Desperatly Needed!

Recommended Posts

I'm super late the convo but I say #2 also. It'd be nice to have someone to talk with about what happened at the wedding besides your new husband. More people to share the memories.

 

And the whole vacation thing is bonkers! Hopefully things will get better for him in January.

Thanks, yah I cant believe not one girl has picked #1. I guess I was crazy for even thinking of it. You just see some of the ladies around here putting up with a lot of unwanted stress because their guests cant commit when they said they could to begin with. If we keep it small to our 10-12 dearest fam and friends who we know are definitly comming than at least we will not be dealling with that stress and also have them there to share the experience.

I'm so glad I posted this poll. It definitly cleared my head and made the decision a pretty clear one. Thanks everyone.

Jackie, do what's in your heart. Cain and I would get married alone in Cabo if no one would come. It's important to us as a couple to be married there. If you and Ryan feel you want it to be a special thing that only the two of you share (maybe have your parents as a witness) then do it.

Good Morning TammyM,

I really think I do want a SMALL wedding. I was just getting nervous with all the stress everyone is going through with their guests, and thought screw that lets just have a stressfree private romantic weddingmoon instead. But after reading all the nice replies, I do think that dealling with a little stress might be worth having a few of our friends/fam there.

Jackie, I said 2 also just because there would be no way that I could go alone because people would start coming even if they weren't invited...as for me I am having a very small wedding just my parents and close friends but I think the only person that I really want there would be my mon cause she's the one that has been doing everything with me to prepare for the wedding...

 

but...

 

one of my friends got married in St.Lucia and it was just her and her husband....they ended up having a reception when they got home and had a video playing of their ceremony at the reception, it was beautiful...

 

she told me she had the best time ever and wouldn't of changed it, so Im saying that if you were considering it I dont think you would regret it but do what's right for youcheesy.gif what ever will make you happy

Jackie we all complain about the planning process, just keep things simple (it's so easy to go over board) and it will totally be worth it in the end.

Thanks Edyta wink.gif . I think Ryans mom would probably invite herself if we had it just the two of us anyway. She is super cool, but Im not sure how I would feel about Ryan Me and his MOM on our private romantic weddingmoon. lol

Tammy

I didnt even realize she had purchased a condo. Thats great. UM what is her dad thinking. I'm sure he would change his tune, If she was living with him. Its so easy for people to say stuff like that when they arent in the situation.

So have you already started packing her stuff for her or what. lol

    • 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!
