Just remember that, even if you had a wedding near home, there would be some people telling you that your plans aren’t ok because of XYZ – you can’t make everybody happy, so might as well make sure that at least you two are.

I’m not having a destination wedding but a few of my friends have, and I hate to tell you, I doubt these comments will go away. Unfortunately it seems to come with the territory, I think you have to learn to live with some amount of disapproval if you go this route.

Try to think of the good intent behind the comments – people are probably genuinely disappointed because they can’t spend the special day with you, because the trip is prohibitive to them for whatever reason.

We are having a Destination Wedding with less then 10 people and having a hometown reception after. IMO its the best of both. I wouldnt ever want a lot of people at my wedding (ceremony) And I have a lot of family members/friends who dont travel or wouldnt have the $.

Good idea, mishelleez, could you have an informal reception for everyone at home?

Were having a destination wedding across the country.  We have also gotten quite a bit of complaints about it, but we know that we are going to have a wedding/vacation and that those who really want to attend will find a way to come along!  If this is what you really want, then go for it.  Remember, it’s your day, and you  can’t please everyone!

There’s not been much complaint from my family, but my friends have been a little ridiculous. Anytime I bring up the wedding they make comments about how they can’t come, or how it doesn’t matter b/c they won’t be there. Very frustrating.
