@msbriezyb:  Ugh, this situation sucks. My BFF went through the exact same thing; ultimately she decided to have the wedding near her, and was happy with that decision. The people who really care will come, and those who can’t afford to will still hopefully send you well wishes. 

I think the polite/etiquette “thing to do” is to send wedding announcements after the wedding to those who didn’t or couldn’t come. When I was wedding invite shopping I saw some nice ones on sites like Minted.

Best of luck to you!!

It is possible to make everyone happy. I especially would be less empathetic if you are paying for things on your own. I didn’t take the traditional wedding route, in part to avoid things like that! But I know its not for everyone.

@msbriezyb:  you have to do what is most convenient for you and Fiance.  Hopefully everyone else will come, but if not, you guys need to stay true to yourselves.

Going from MD to FL is a big trip for old folks. They are going to complain. Ignore it!
