Where in the US are you?  Are there “destination” type places you could go within driving distance for you?

You don’t have to make your wedding a destination wedding in order to keep it small. I attended a reception last year that followed an immediate family only ceremony. They wanted to keep the wedding small, but still celebrate with friends and family. The wedding was local.

The first thing about wedding planning is that the only people you need to worry about are you and your groom. there will be people who can not make it which is unfortunate. If everyone else is on board perhaps you cut down your wedding a little. Let the parents know that this is what you want to do and perhaps give them more information on why you like where you chose. You could also ask them what they think for destinations. Cruise lines are very cheap and most leave out of florida, you all could carpool down there and get married on the ship. instead of just seeing one country you could see up to 10. If the parents are still hesitant about the destination thing then perhaps there is another issue besides the travel.  sit down with them and explian how you feel and if they still dont want to go perhaps have them help you plan the reception when you get back.

Have you thought about Miami? It’s pretty “tropical” and there are some beautiful spots to get hitched.

Why not make it in FL? Some gorgeous beaches and within driving distance for those who don’t want to fly!

@LuckyJuls:  Great minds think alike! 😉 Miami is great, also the Keys, and my fav spot in FL is St Augustine!
