I don’t think them not being there should be your focus. If a destination wedding is what you want, just know that most people might not go (that can be a good thing or a bad thing). I would just try to enjoy the day and the event.

For my DW, most people we invited are not coming due to different reasons. Although I was a bit sad about it at first, my mom reminded me that it is our day and that it was always my dream to get married in a tropical place. In the end, do what makes you and your FI happy!

It’s true that your wedding day should be about you & your husband.  But it’s also a day for you to come together with your loved ones & celebrate.  If he’s close to his mom, sister, & brother and you are set on a destination wedding, I think you should make an effort to get them there.  Presumably, they’ve supported him throughout his life and will continue to support you to as a couple, so it would be a shame not to have them there to celebrate.  I’m not saying you should fly out every random family member, but if you can afford it & he wants those three people there, I think you should both brainstorm ideas to help them come!

Again, I don’t think you should feel pressured to do anything on your wedding day that you don’t want to, but if you know there is something that’s important to your future husband (like having his family there), you should definitely take that into account as well.

I’d at least fly out his mom…and if you can’t afford to pay for the others, I’d record and share it with family

If their reasons for not being there are financial, I would pay their way!
