Someone Talk Me Back Into My DW

Didn't worry about shuttling people around.
Our friends and family did say it was the best wedding they had ever been to.
Also they didn't really leave the resort because it was an Ai and so much to do there.
We did want to have an at home reception once we returned to the US for those that couldn't make it, but we never got around to it and had other expenses.
I loved my wedding.
It is what we wanted and we did it.
Do what you want.
No matter where you chose, it will be special.

You want a DW you have a DW, sod everyone else its not about them. If your heart is set on it nothing else will do.
As for your family inviting every Tom, Dick and Harry tell them in no uncertain terms it isn't happening or it will spiral out of control! again they've had their wedding so they can piss off and leave yours alone lol
We invited over 30 people 3 have booked!! You will find when you are planning a wedding whether its at home or abroad people are full of shite! you get oh i'll be there I wouldn't miss it for the world!! its bollox, you'll fall out with friends but you know what - thats life and its their problem.
FI has already warned his mother that if she starts inviting her cronnies she's getting uninvited lol
Rant over lmao

I went through something similar and we also wanted a small wedding. I sent STD's to about 100 people (some were the parents' friends!) and we were thinking "OMG what if they all come!". From there roughly 60 people said yes and I was still a little freaked out but willing to go with it, in the end we had a little over 30 and it was perfect.
Don't cave, have the wedding you want and if you know some people you would rather not have there will come for sure...don't invite them. The beauty of a DW is that you can say it's just an intimate wedding out of the country and get away with not inviting everyone and their mother. That's harder to pull off in your home town.

Having a DW was the absolute best decision about my wedding I made-- the families and friends got to get to know each other better in such a relaxed setting. The all-inclusive part was so convenient and made everything so not stressful...
I say- follow your heart!!!!
