Bees, I never thought it would happen to me but I am ***3/4***yes, 3/4 DONE with planning my wedding and am wanting to UP-ROOT the entire thing. I have officially become an indecisive bride…maybe, I guess, I dunno. UGH!! Here’s the deal…
2 minutes after we got engaged (ha) FI and I decided that we were going to have an intimate, romantic, 2 person destination wedding in Jamaica. Just the 2 of us. All-inclusive vacation, wedding, and honeymoon package. Tours, water sports, food, even ALCOHOL included for a week. We negotiated with ULTRA EXPENSIVE island photographers and got the package and price we wanted (which I was very proud of myself for). We planned a send off party on a more local beach for 30 of our immediate family and best friends. Done and done Nothing left to do but finish paying and wait, right?
What happened you asked??!! Well, when looking for places to celebrate New Year’s we (more like **I**) came across the SWANKIEST, most LUXE, most GLAMOROUS hotel I have ever seen. And nowwwwww, guess who wants a traditional wedding. I don’t know what to do….!!!
I commented on another brides post about being indecisive so I know I’m not the only one but I’d like to know if any of you bees changed up your wedding plans completely midstream? What made you change your mind or what was the deciding factor to make you stick to the original plan? Was it the best thing ever with no regrets or do you wonder about the wedding that never was ((dramatic echo))?

Well we havent changed our entire wedding plan. BUt we attended at event forlast weekend and felll in love with that hall, even though we already put a deposit on our hall.. so we are trying to see if its possible to switch over..
You could have you send off party at that hotel if u just want to use that location?

@katieebee:Oh no… would you lose any money if you changed your plan? I did the same thing and almost completely changed countries for my DW a couple months back… but eventually we stuck to the original plan. It’s hard.. so many ideas of what to do!

@bells:To do the send off party there would be blast the budget. The currently planned send off party location is at the local beach, so minimum charges there. Just food and decor whereas the swanky hotel would be much more expensive.

Sounds like two completely different opposite weddings! Ultimately though it’s not your decision, but it’s something you and your FI should choose together.
Why did you choose an intimate two people wedding in the first place?
What attracts you of the new venue? Is it only the venue or is it the whole traditional wedding thing, with guests, food, favors, ecc..
I think that when you are in the beginning of the wedding planning you are apt to make some mistakes, because your vision has not yet defined itself. So I don’t think it’s so strange you are now longing for something else! But any wedding you have should reflect both of you, not only you, so you really need to analyse why you want something different and discuss it with FI!
It’s not too late to change everything, but as it’s already January you might need to change the date (depending on venue / photographer ecc availability)
