Am I being selfish???

So when we were trying to decide where we were going to get married, FI said well it has to be somewhere with kids because one of his best friends has 3 kids, I said yeah ok, even though I would have loved to go to an adults only resort as his friend was the only one going with kids.
Anyway we tell him the resort, give him a rough idea of price and say look it is going to be expensive but its one of the best places for kids. He said fine no problem.
So when it finally comes to it we all book he hangs back a few weeks and then surprise surprise he said i've had a quote for the 5 of us and its just too expensive!!! wtf did he think it was going to be cheap for 5 of them!!!
Then the best bit he says well we're still coming but we are going to pick a different resort thats cheaper. Luckily for FI (lol) he said thats fine but if you don't stay at the hotel you are paying the extra $ to get in because we are already paying for a reception.
So i'm furious that i'm now stuck at a bloody kids resort when I don't have to be, other people have booked so its not as if i can change it wahhhh!!!
Am I being selfish? lol

I say get your FH to sit down and talk to him about if the whole family will actually be coming. If they are, I'd say stick at the kid friendly resort. The day & night pass fees are insane and most likely they will stay at the same resort as you and not need it. If no children coming, then by all means definitely change to somewhere that will make your day special if you really do not want to be around children. Just be sure to communicate well to your guests about the change, but try to be make it sould like the change is about something other than children not coming. People with children may get offended.

We actually chose Mexico in the wedding brochures BECAUSE of Le Blanc!! So there was no way we were giving up on it completely!
I would have loved to have went to Dreams because of the dolphins, it looks amazing...think the only reason we really didn't seriously look into Dreams is because its not as big as Moon Palace...maybe look into moving resorts after your wedding??

The only thing worse on his part would be if he asked you to move the wedding to his new resort...lol Sorry to joke because it stinks...and it is proof once again that you should do what you want because people are flakes. (it's not his fault he can't afford it, it's his fault for not doing the math sooner thereby making a promise he couldn't keep - flake!) You'll still have a wonderful wedding but it is super annoying...best of luck

What's done is done so just focus on your wedding and don't let him get you down. Make the most of your big day. You will have a great time, no matter what.
Resorts with kids can be fun and some of them even have adults-only designated areas/pools.
Just don't give that guy the upper hand in letting him know that you're upset.
You are the bride and the star of the show, after all
