I felt like you did.  I considered a destination wedding in either the moutains/beach or Vegas.  Fiance would have preferred a destination wedding on the beach (he would have been ok with the mountains but not Vegas–as he used to live there).  But I wanted to have the dancing, cake, getting ready with all of my Bridesmaid or Best Man and I wanted to have an awesome party with all of my friends (not just the few that would be able to come if it was a DW).  It costs more, but it was worth it to me to have that day.

So that’s what we’re doing.  I know my Fiance would rather take the beach, but in the end he wants to do what makes me happy.  I guess this is because I’m really the one that cares more about it, he just wants to be married and doesn’t care as much about how it happens.  So the easiest and most relaxing to him would be that Destination Wedding, but he’s not against a party or being the center of attention.  I think he just thinks it would be cheaper and more relaxing (he’s right about it being cheaper!).  But since it’s more important to me and I have stronger feelings about it, we are going with my choice.  Mine won’t be huge either, about 85 people.

Have you talked to him to explain why this is important to you?  And why you want a traditional wedding?  It doesn’t have to be one or the other.  65 is not a huge guest list (think about people that have 300), I think you could be able to work out a small intimate wedding at home where you could get the things you want.  You shouldn’t be sad about not having the wedding you want, you really need to discuss this further with him.

You COULD do both.  Get married in Vegas, and have a reception at home.  But I completely get how you feel, I would not want that, it is not the same as being ina place you love to actually exchange vows

Os he dead set against having a wedding at home, and is the only reason because he is shy
