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 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.
