There’s nothing wrong with you— it is a very annoying and tedious process, and it is usually really expensive, no matter what your financial circumstances are. I’d recommend that you and your fiance talk about what is really important to you, and what things you can do without, and develop a vision that is really comfortable to you. Then present it to the families as a done deal, no wiggle room, this is how it’s going to be done.  

If your parents are paying, though, you do have to have a little more consideration for their wishes and vision, but you have to start with what YOU want, and how you want the day to be, then negotiate from there.

It’s very possible to throw a huge party with tons of guests and not have it be over-the-top or expensive. You just need to be more creative.  Some suggestions would be a casual beach reception with guests in sundresses or dress shorts, a bonfire and a pig roast (picking beach theme as your locaiton says Jamaica), or a “destination wedding” to a resort with a small group followed by a big party back home with all your friends and extended family.
