I can’t answer your questions… wedding’s bring out the “ugly” in people. But I will tell you that I wish my husband and I would have eloped.

Maybe try telling them that you understand that they are upset, but you really want to make the ceremony about you guys and your love and you thought a destination wedding is perfect for you guys.

I am having the same kind of issue with some of our guests. We are getting married close to where we live not to where my family lives and Ihave heard complaints too. I have been telling people that if they can’t make it to our big day that is fine, I can understand, just as long as Fiance shows up thats all im really concerned about. and kind of make it a joke but I have realized that I cannot make everyone one happy and as long as Fiance and I are happy that is all that matters. So stick to your guns and let everyone else go fly a kite.

*sigh* I totally understand.  We just had our engagement party last weekend and people were giving us crap about having it on the beach.  Our family is ALL over anyway, so no matter where we had it, people would have to travel.  I’m so sick of people complaining (who quite honestly, don’t matter.  We’ve cleared this with the important people) … DON’T COME THEN!!

Stick to what you want.  FI keeps telling me this is about US, NOT everyone else.  Do what feels right with you.  The people that matter will be there… and if for some reason they’re not… send a cute picture!!

I feel your pain!  I would bet that most Destination Wedding brides have heard what you are hearing from people who are complaining about your wedding being “so far away.”  The kick in the teeth is that you really can’t say to these people “Well, we checked with the people that really matter, and they are cool with it, so SUCK IT!”

Fiance and I are paying for our own wedding, and they say I see it, if I am paying for the party, I will have it where I want it!  And besides, at the end of the day, there are really only two people who need to be there – the bride and the groom!
