My first, and hopefully only meltdown.
For the first time this weekend I really regretted deciding to have a destination wedding. I realize that I have somewhat touched on this subject before, but I am writing this to be a completely open book. So far the planning process has been really easy and stress-free, but as the wedding gets closer, the real stuff is kicking in.
My aunt (the one whose veil I am using) has rheumatoid arthritis and has had some complications due to the disease lately. She has gotten numerous tests done, but they can’t figure out exactly what is wrong with her. She is so sad and disappointed that she will miss the wedding and I am so sad and disappointed that she wont be there. I completely understand why she can’t come, as no one likes to travel internationally when they aren’t feeling well. At the same time, I started regretting our decision to have a destination wedding.
On the other end of things, one of my bridesmaids dropped out of the wedding.
Yep, two weeks before the wedding she told me she won’t be coming after all. Although I was never fully convinced she was coming, it still sucks to know she won’t be there for sure.
Things have gotten better since hearing this disappointing news and my parents have reminded me that our wedding will be full of love no matter who is there. As we get closer I am getting really excited to be on the island and not have to think about anything for a while. Hopefully when I return I can come back and tell y’all that our wedding was amazing and I didn’t regret a thing. For now though, I have mixed feelings.
Have any of you had a destination wedding you regretted?
