Yes! I felt like this a bit. My mother was unable to communicate with me because of an illness so that was really hard to not have her input. 

I LOVED my destination wedding and everyday we are SOOO happy that we did it and believe we made the right choice 105%. There were times where we questioned our choice for sure. We only had 40 people attend after all but it was sooo PERFECT in every way. Our friends that attended are still talking about it today and they made connections with each other and have been hanging out together back home. It’s so cool cause they prolly wouldn’t have talked at all if we had a huge 200 person wedding. 

Anyway, I did have friends who were put off by our destination wedding idea. They obviously were the ones that A. Had never been married before and B. Did not attend our wedding. So man of our friends who had been married before TOTALLY understood why we were doing what we were doing! They rocked and were soo supportive! 

Another point: It is so true that you can not be have Type A personality and have a  destination wedding and with that being said that is probably a reason you do not have a bunch of people fussing over you and your wedding. Can I guess you are a low maintenance gal? No fuss to be had right ?  

Are you having a wedding shower? I didn’t have one but I did have a bachlorette party that was a blast. 

There’s time and you’ll get some attention closer to the date. 😉 


PS- I had absolutely NO decor and that was just perfect- I kinda agree with your Fiance on that one. Don’t stress yourself over that stuff!

@VegasSukie: sorry to hear this. I am not as far down the road as you with your Destination Wedding yet so noone really knows much so havent asked me. I hope you get more of a buzz about it soon.

@elimel123:  what were you saying about type A personality, I got confused lol, do people say you cant have Destination Wedding if you are one? Smile

I totally understand.  I’m having a Destination Wedding too, although its in the US.  I’m booking all my vendors far in advance because that’s the only time I can meet with them- going back for my 2nd visit this weekend and won’t be back until January.  Its almost like people don’t get involved unless you stress out about each detail!

I think your BMs will get more excited closer to the wedding.

I know exactly how you feel!! I am getting married in Mexico in May and none of my friends are going so they act like my wedding isn’t even happening! No one ever asks me anything about or offers to help me do anything for it! I am having a reception back at home in July (only to please my parents) and everyone is looking at that like my wedding! It’s very frustrating!!

@VegasSukie:  I may have to do that!! I love that there isn’t much to do!! I can just sit back and relax and not worry too much over wedding stuff!! 🙂
