What may be a ‘vacation’ for you may be a chore for others. People who have DWs should never, ever think about it as a vacation for others as you have no idea what their plans for that years trip may have otherwise been.

For me, I have no desire to ever get on a cruise ship so I’d decline, no matter who it was. $500 on a weekend cruise is not my idea of fun. Sorry.

If you’re attracted to the thought of getting married on the water, you can still marry on a boat. I got married on a triple-deck paddle boat and had a day cruise.

futureseh :  don’t make them change their minds. Don’t stress yourself out. It is your wedding. We also plan a cruise wedding and have just told a few people that’s what we are doing. Bottom line no questions or mind changing unless financially it makes more sense to cruise somewhere else. No one has fought us on it because we both want to do it and we haven’t told people that getting married near home is even an option.

Convince your Fiance and have him behind it 100%. And obviously it all comes to finances for you two. If not everyone can come not everyone can come. You are doing what you two want to and that’s it. That’s all that should matter too, you are the ones getting married. If you two can accept that you two may be the only two there then I think you’re ready to go. 🙂
