FI and I got engaged on Saturday. We’ve been talking about a beach/DW for quite some time, so I was ready to jump in feet first.. As a side note: it’s a small wedding, just family and my best friend. Everyone is on board, we don’t have to worry about that.
I’ve literally spent all day/night totally consumed by finding a resort. We’re pretty experienced travelers and I thought that this would be mostly a breeze for us. BUT we are running into issues:
Either the resort is booked for our May 24th wedding date (I did expect this to be a little difficult) OR they have requirements we can’t meet…Like arriving 2-3 days before the wedding.. EVEN for a symbolic wedding.
We aren’t picky on where we go. We just want a resort with good reviews, and that will allow us to host our symbolic wedding there. We are pretty open to the other details & I know I can’t be super picky with a 4 month timeline.
This morning I brokedown and signed up for DestinationWeddings.com – it’s a DW service/planning/travel agent. I paid the $50 hoping for some relief. I hope that this company has connections and can find a resort that will allow a symbolic wedding without applying all the legal requirements of a legal ceremony. Hopefully I’ll hear from my assigned agent today sometime. Ahhhh…
Bee’s, I’m so-so-so stressed. Any words of comfort would be greatly appreciated. Nothing negative, we don’t want me crying at work 😉
