So you just wanted to vent or were you asking for advice?

I say to go with your gut. If you think there’s something else, there probably is. For my wedding, my fiance doesn’t think any of HIS family will be there. He says maybe his parents and his sister and her husband. He doesn’t even want me to ask his mom for a guest list. I feel bad about that because I do not want her to think I’m cutting her and her family out of the wedding. I’m sure it will look that way if I send out only two invites to his side of the family without saying anything to any of them. He got mad when I said I was asking his mom anyways, because she isn’t going to be thinking I’m rude like that.

I think that his family would probably make you feel good and compensate for your family not being there. It’d probably be really sentimental if his father walked you down the aisle as a way of accepting you as his daughter “in law.” But, if you want to get married in HI, and that’s a long way for everyone to go, you gotta accept that you’ll get no’s. look in the destination thread at the frustrations of other brides who have 30% guest list attendance to their destination wedding, and it could put things into perspective better.

Maybe just run off to Hawaii and elope/have your honeymoon and then come back and have a reception so that his family doesn’t have pressure to travel so far and leave behind work and such.

:/  that is frustrating, his father shouldn’t have said yes in the first place, if he felt that way.
