    Angry Last minute vow renewal planning

    We have been working with a planner for our vow renewal for a couple of months now, but are getting a feeling this may turn out to be a regular vacation, and not a vow renewal as we had hoped. We are having a hard time getting in touch with our planner; emails go unanswered for days (sometimes almost a week), and there has been no contact from the minister or photographer (we are a month out). I'm getting nervous and annoyed, and was wondering if anyone knows another company we can try for a last minute switch. I'm just glad we haven't sent any money yet. Any help will be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

    welcome to your first posting on aruba.com

    who is doing the planning? would that person be the one to arrange for all of the other stuff such as photography and minister etc?

    have you tried lissy lampe or robert arends?

    I don't want to mention the name because I think they frequent the board, and I'm at a point where I really don't even want to hear the excuses. But no I have not tried Lissy or Robert. I will look them up and make contact. Thanks so much.

    And yes, this company was supposed to be taking care of everything for us.

    Welcome to the forum and good luck! Don't stress. Remember it's Aruba - they're on island time I stressed about a vow renewal and asking questions and setting everything up like I did my wedding. The universe had a different plan for us and it wound up being less than we planned for, but even better than I could have imagined! Hang in there!

    Thanks Jacki! I needed that. I have already been thru the drama with my original wedding and didnt want to go thru it again. We r seriously thinking about giving up and just doing an anniversary photo shoot. Will make calls this weekend and see what happens! But in the end its us and we are happy...and we will be on a fab vacation...thats all that matters!

    Don't give up! Decide what is really important and what you absolutely must have and just go with it.
