Destination Weddings: Risk Bad Weather?

Q:

My location has a high and low season, and we'd really like to take advantage of the great deals during the low season. But are the savings worth the possibility of bad weather?

A:

The answer is an unequivocal no! Though prices may be reduced significantly -- ignore them. Weather during the low season is unpredictable: hurricane season in the Caribbean is especially infamous and an imminent storm could easily result in a cancellation of the festivities altogether. Wedding plans may be safer towards the tail end of the season, but in general, don't risk it.

Can We Tell Wedding Guests How Their Wedding Cash Will Be Used?

My partner and I didn’t register at any stores because I own my home and it’s fully furnished. We’re expecting we'll receive some cash gifts at the wedding and plan to use them on several home improvement projects, such as building a bar in our partially finished basement and doing some remodeling in our bathroom. Is it acceptable or appropriate to write about the use of the money in our wedding thank you notes?
