WOW. I cannot believe this guy! I hope you cut ties with him when you got back, but not before you told him off! With all of the expense involved in a Destination Wedding, this guy owes you. I don’t even know the guy, but I’m thinking about doing a Destination Wedding, and I just want to find him and beat him up! πŸ˜‰

I’m soooo sorry to hear about what happened!!!!  That was awful of him to behave that way. Don’t beat yourself up about it, you had no idea he would behave that way, you said you didn’t know him very well to begin with.  These were some things I was afraid of when we planned to get married away. It ended up just being us and one other couple and I wouldn’t have had it any other way!!!! It was sooo perfect. I hope you feel better soon πŸ™

I think this is a great post and very much needed as i think a lot of people don’t think of these things when planning a Destination Wedding. 

I am having a Destination Wedding but will still be in B.C. 

I think if people think about your post and want a classy party (i am envisioning mine as you did yours πŸ™‚ ) there are many things to consider. 

Sorry yours didn’t go as planned, but i’m sure your happy you can help others not make this mistake in the future!

UGH!!!! – what a complete moron.  I’m so sorry your memories are filled with that… but, I have a feeling that your OTHER guests focused on the real reason they were there – to celebrate with and for you.  Hopefully, as time fades, the GOOD memories will linger longer than the bad ones.  If anything, perhaps you’ve spared someone the same trauma by the wisdom of your post!

Awful! Unbelievable that grown adults will behave like that! 

I’m glad you posted this, I had thought about doing a Destination Wedding but this was one of the reasons that we won’t be doing it. One our very close friends is with a girl who no one can stand. Unfortunately we would have no choice but to invite her and she is basically the female version of your guest. Some people are just too self centered (and drunk) to notice how disruptive and hurtful their behaviour can be.

@west.coast.blonde: you are not alone and I am so sorry this happen to you. while my wedding wasn’t a destination wedding – we did have approximately 80% of the guests staying in one hotel. We had 2 guests (family members of mine) that caused many many horrible “alcohol laden” scenes – I am still in shock and it’s been exactly a month. Try to make peace with it as regret will eat you alive.

I would have REALLY showed him what a bridezilla was if someone tried to pull that crap on my wedding day. I’m so sorry you went through that for your special day. I’m glad to hear that your wedding was still special though, thats what matters.
