Don’t Know If We Will Be Able To Take A Honeymoon…what Should We Do?

My fiancé and I are getting married in mid-July and we booked a honeymoon at Disney World back the first of March. We both just recently graduated from College and are seeking jobs. The problem is neither of us has a definite job yet and the final payment for the honeymoon is due this Thurs. May 28. We have contemplated putting the final payment on her credit card and if we don’t get jobs then cancel the trip and the payment will be refunded, all except $100 dollars of the deposit i payed in March. The final payment is around $1,700. The problem with putting it on her card is that her mother goes through her mail and credit card statements and she is not able to make decisions for her self even though we are both adults and out of college. Also if we were to just cancel and rebook it if we get jobs before the wedding it will cost us more to book now at the cheapest hotel at disney and what we have booked is at a mid-line resort with all meals included, we actually saved $600 just by staying an extra night than originally planned. So I know this is long and I may have lost most people by not but for those that are still here, do you have any suggestions on what we should do? Or how we could pay for the honeymoon? We are confident that we will both have jobs before the wedding because its still a month and a half off. One last thing, I could put it on my credit card but my card is just a student card and my credit line is not big enough. Thanks for any suggestions!

Should The Parents Of The Bride Contact The Groom’s Parents After They Get Engaged?

Our son is getting married. He has been engaged for over a year. We live over 700 miles from him , his fiance and her parents. WE have no idea what has gone on up to this point.
1. Her parents have yet to call us.
2. They have planned a Disney Wedding Destination Cruise.
3. They have sent out invitations to only a few aunts, uncles, and cousins on our side. (who…by the way can not make it)
4. We don’t know if there was or will be a shower.
5. Our son says he doesn’t care that no one can make it cause “this is just for us”!
6 The wedding is at the end of August
7. We found out that some of his very wild crazy friends will be on the cruise.
8. We are feeling very awkward about calling her parents.
9. They are having 2 ceremonies — 1 before they board the ship and another on Disney’s Private island on the last day of the cruise. However, we don’t know if there will be a dinner etc.
Was it our place to contact the bride’s parents? Shouldn’t they have included us in some of the plans? We are quite upset and don’t know how to handle this. We are not planning on attending the cruise. We are trying to get info on the pre cruise ceremony and attend that.
( This cruise will set us back over $3,000! Maybe $4,000 with plane flight. That doesn’t include the gift we would like to give our son. We are retired and just can’t afford this! We don’t want to hurt his feelings but times are tough. We would rather give them a nice gift instead of paying for the cruise. Also, we will feel really weird to meet her parents for the first time at that point.)

Why Do Some Stocks Just Seem To Take Off Despite Any Compelling News As To Why They Should?

For Instance, JCP is up 13% since wed morning and Disney is up 14% since wed morning.
Does anyone know why these stocks went up or why stocks in general shoot up when there is no impacting news?

Should I Give A Shower Or Engagement Party?

My son and DIL will be married in May 2010 and live far away. They will be visiting us in July and I think a shower is too early. Should I make it an engagement party instead. They’re honeymoon is at Disney and will be registering at Disney for their wedding presents, but not until beginning of 2010. I just want to acknowledge their union and share with friends who won’t be attending wedding.

Should I Get A Suite With My Fiancee’s Parents On Our Wedding Cruise?

My soon to be wife is requesting we get a 2 bedroom suite with a common area for the cruise part of our wedding vacation (married on Disney’s private Island) with her parents. I think she’s nuts, what are your thoughts? The only thing is that they can help with the babysitting, but that doesn’t matter to me, we’ll figure it out.
