You can’t control what she says , you can only control your reaction.

Just continue to be strong and let her comments roll off your back.

“I’m sorry you feel that way, but we have already decided to _________”

Just keep repeating it until you are blue in the face.

I bet your wedding will be amazing! When I planned my Destination Wedding, we had lots of people saying we were selfish. We even had some poeple want us to change our venue to accomodate a 2 year old that wasn’t invited. We even had those same people invite 4 other people to our wedding!

Weddings do bring out the nasty in people. A lot of people just don’t understand that it’s your day! It’s the one ay that you and Fiance get to have where it’s all about YOU!! Good luck and shake that stuff off! Your wedding will be amazing.

@Allie99:  I absolutely, 100% agree with everything you say!!  Hold your ground!!!  It sounds absolutely lovely and meaningful to you.  This is the one time in your life when you can be selfish! (I almost want to say “You go, Girl!!” but it’s not 1996)

It sounds like a fabulous wedding.   Agree with all —  I would try to stick with Yoga to cut down on stress and not liquids, but any port in a storm

So, I am also having a destination wedding. My wedding is 13 hours away from EVERYONE’S home. There are people that are just not going to be able to come. I have had friends AND family throw a fit that it was so far away. I finally just said, “I would love it if you could come but I understand if you can’t. This is our wedding and our decision, and would love your support and for you to be a part of OUR day.”

It seems that you just need to be upfront with her and tell her if she can be there great if not, your loss. 🙂

This will be your day and your memories to pass on make it about YOUR commitment and not someone’s travel plans.
