Please don’t get me started. We have been planning our Destination Wedding for about 2 years now. I’ve dealt with all the stress of picking a location,sticking to a budget. Everything finally came together and now I need to deal with the guests. We are having about 25 people (best friends and relatives). You would think that by having a small Destination Wedding in the US with over a years’ notice that people would respond promptly, but they don’t. I have some people who want to have a week long vacation and treat my wedding like an after thought. Others want to be upset because I don’t take their advice on cakes,decor, and etc. I have washed my hands of all their drama and promised to keep all guests informed via our website and know in my heart that those who want to be there will and those that don’t,won’t!

If brides just planning one evening in the town they live in is stressed, I can only imagine the stress of a Destination Wedding bride.. especially an Destination Wedding out of the country. You have to be completely stressed and it’s quite normal.  However, what isn’t normal is your best friends comments in such a rude manner.  Yes, having a wedding in another country is extravagent, but it’s their choice to come or not.  And for your single friend.. HELLO… it’s ITALY!  She might meet a very handsome Italian guy! 😉

Wow waiting it out 4 years to have the wedding of your dreams? That’s dedication!! At this point, with so much already invested into the idea, you obviously won’t be changing your mind about having a Destination Wedding. I’m surprised your friend wouldn’t get that. I also don’t see how anyone would think they would be “miserable” going on an Italian vacation, solo or not! Was this girl supposed to be your MOH? That would be so disappointing to have her disapprove so strongly about the whole thing. 🙁
