This wedding is a year away. .. Here is my issue- rant. Any suggestion??
So we found a much more budget friendly option for everyone than the original Chas option. We have booked Memory Mountain in Mars Hill NC. It works out a whole lot cheaper for everyone for an entire weekendstay. We are having a Sat wedding so people can arrive Friday and settle in and Sunday they are free to explore the place. Fishing hiking etc. We have paid the taxes cleaning fee and security deposits for all the cabins so our guest only have to pay for their actual room. Its closer than Chas for most of the traveling guests and for 2 of the bridesmaids that were concerned about the cost of going to Chas. Now we are working on getting the invitations out so people have plenty of time to plan and have even gotten it so they can split the cost into 2 payments. Total cost is $300 per room. FOR THE ENTIRE WEEKEND!! 3 NIGHTS!!! Now I have a bridesmaid issue. Ugh. This is a 5 hour drive and Chas was an 8 hour. She is also the one who was planning on coming to my place for a few days soon for dress shopping and finalizing plans and also volunteered to watch my little ones while i was on honeymoon. All of a sudden she is hedging around and not answering texts. She only text me and said she would not be able to stay the weekend of the wedding based on a work schedule as of right now of her husbands. Said it would take a huge chunk of of their vacation fund. This is a few days after texting me to ask about making sure they are in a cabin with calm people and after already committing along with the other bridesmaids. ..
