- Wedding: July 2014
So I recently got engaged (yay!) and next step is to plan our wedding. My fiance (that sounds strange to me) really wants to get married in Greece. Personally, if I have a destination wedding, it will be in another country! We can`t agree!
I`ve noticed that when people congratulate us on our engagement, the next question is “When’s the wedding?”. When we have told people about possibly getting married in Greece, I’ve had some really strong (negative) reaction from friends. (Neither of us are Greek, by the way. I’m Northern European, the fiance is Asian).
Is this normal? To the bees that have done the destination thing, did you get positive feedback or people telling you it’s a ridiculous idea? My thought is they want to come to our wedding, but not pay the cost of traveling. To be honest, part of the reason we want to go away is that we want it to be special and fun to the two of us and not have hundreds of people at our wedding (with a gigantic cost). We really wanted something small and low key.
Please let me know your thoughts!
