I’m sorry, that’s a difficult decision.  Maybe let him calm down for a week or so and discuss it when he’s not so hung up on dance lessons.  You both might be able to come to a better decision when you’ve had some time to think.

Is there any chance you could still do a Destination Wedding and use some of the money you were budgeting for the bigger wedding to help immediate family members with their travel?

I wanted a Destination Wedding as well and my Fiance wanted the big wedding.  We’re having the big wedding he wanted and I know it’s going to be an amazing day.  But at least once a day I think it might have been just as nice to have our immediate families only on a beach somewhere!

I think you’re going to second guess yourself either way BUT once the day comes, you won’t have any regrets because you’re marrying your best friend and that’s what matters most!

Have a Destination Wedding then a reception when you return with your family and friends.  You’ll get to wear your dress twice (BONUS!) and the two of you can show of the dance moves you learn.

I also really like the idea of a Destination Wedding and reception for your friends and family when you are back home. Then your wedding/honeymoon can be intamate and romantic and when you come home you can just have a good time with those you love!

Well since it doesn’t appear you have sent out invites/ Save-The-Date Cards, or booked a venue – the decision is still up to you w/o you having to loose out on deposits.

SO, you and your Fiance need to sit down and weigh out the pros & cons of each and come to a joint decision. We thought for a bit about a Destination Wedding, but knew that most of our friends wouldn’t be able to come, and it was important to both of us that they were there.

There is nothing wrong with changing your mind, but you and him need to be in agreeance on how you want to spend your budget.
