354 Days to go and we have Cancelled!!!!!

Hi



Oh my God, families - cant live with them, cant live without them. We have booked to go to malta with 35 guests (they were booking this weekend) and we have called it all off. Sick of the moaning and the interfeering image



Now just me and my H2B are jetting off to Sri Lanka in february for two weeks of sheer luxary, get married and have a fantastic honeymoon all in one.



Just broke the news to the familes and cant help but think they are thank full that we are going on our own. image



Oh well....we have made our mins up and Sri Lanks looks out of this world. Waiting for a confirmation of the exact day we get wed then it count down time. We are so excited :\)



We are still going ahead with a party when we get back so i stil get to wear my dress twice. imageimageimage



Take care all and please feel free to share any dilema's

  • Sorry to hear that Chez, but I'm sure you're going to have a fantastic time in Sri Lanka. From some of the photos I've seen on this site, it looks amazing!



    I thought that by flying abroad to get married with a small group of people (in our case only 11), we would be spared all of the problems and arguments that seem to go hand-in-hand with Uk weddings. But MIL2B is still kicking up a fuss. We're just going to book and hope that she comes round eventually - otherwise, we may end up jetting off just the two of us.



    Good luck with the Sri Lanka plans!
  • Chez,



    Went to Sri Lanka last year. It is wonderful!! Hope you have a truly perfect time.

    I have heard wonderful things about Sri Lanka.

    Its all about having what you both want, some people are just too selfish to realsie that.

    Good on you for putting your foot down. No reretting it!!

    I've been feeling the same, H2B family said they might not be able to afford to come & its really put a downer on the whole thing.



    Neither me or H2B want to get married in the uk, but i feel thats what his parents want.



    Hopefully everything will be ok....



    weddings are SO STRESSFULL!image

    You've definitely made a good choice, I got married in May in Sri Lanka and it was absolutely amazing.



    I put some photos on the other Sri Lanka topic if you want to have a look. You'll have a great time!

    Cor I havent been on here for ages. Changing jobs and been manic - but phew time to chill out again its all gone quiet....back to the wedding!



    Well I am having a party back here - It is costing more than my week in sri lanka, wedding and honeymoon?! How expensive...its all the food I suppose. But I havent actually organised anything. I have this week,started to panic, No bridesmaid dresses...no DJ...no legal stuff... I can get most things sorted am just annoyed at myself for not getting the bridesmaid/page boys sorted in good time. Can you believe the shops are stocking winter dresses already!! i am currently making my party invites but have taken some time out to catch up with you fellow brides to be!



    How are things with you other sri lankan brides?





    Q for you - How are you travelling with your dress and what airline?
