Destination second wedding guilt?
Posted 01 May 2008 - 05:18 PM
This is my 2nd wedding (FI's first) so I feel guilty asking people to spend so much money traveling for a 2nd wedding.
We've fluctuated from trying to find a latin restaurant in Manhattan that can accommodate appx. 80 ppl (seemingly impossible) to a destination wedding. Right now we're looking at inviting everyone for the destination wedding and throwing out the idea of the NYC reception.
Until this morning. Thinking about it on the subway, I think I've decided that I want to have an AHR as well. I just have the feeling that a lot of people will not be able to make it (I predict that about 30 people would show in DR), andI really want to celebrate! And having an AHR will allow people to celebrate without having to spend so much.
I guess my question is for those brides who are planning their second weddings, do you have any guilt about asking people to spend so much money to your second wedding?

I am feeling a lot of guilt as well. This is both our second weddings and we each have kids (11,14,16, 1. We both had pretty big weddings the first time around. At first we thought it would be a wonderful way to tie the knot and the kids would have a blast. My FI is a teacher and we can only travel during school breaks so we chose Dec 29th, 2008 in Cuba. We also invited close friend and family. So far I have 12 of my friends coming and my FI has no one but his kids. None of our family can come for various reasons. Now I feel selfish going away to get married when our parents and brothers won't be coming. But I don't feel guilty enough to cancel. I really didn't want to plan a wedding in Canada. I just wanted to run away and Cuba kind of offered this to me. But now that our own families can't come I think.... oops.
