@SunshineInMyFuture:  No wedding is drama free. I think destination weddings are only drama free when you 100% know that your family cant foot the bill, and you know a real wedding will ensue nothing but drama. We’ve had minor drama in our families over our decision but when I explained costs, my wants for a house, this is about a family not a couple since I have my daughter, and that I dont want stress on our day people back off.

I know it is upsetting when things like this happen but I think when you choose a DW you have to be prepared for others to disagree and not want to come. It sucks but it is just something you have to accept.

As adults we all make decisions on our lives- whether it be to have a DW or to attend a DW. And we have to live with those decisions.

Try not to analyse it too much. Just because FMIL & FFIL don’t attend the actually wedding ceremony does not necessarily mean that they don;t love and support you guys.

Weddings unfortunately are never drama-free. My friends who’ve had DW were more stressed because everyone got mad at them for having to spend so much money, time, and vacation days to go.
