We have decided to take the "Screw Ya'll and see you at the AHR" approach. I was happy the day we decided that. SMILES!

I would stick to the plans.

But I am trying to say that in trying to accommodate everyone else, don't lose sight of the fact that it is YOU and your FI's wedding and what you want is what matters most. Good luck deciding!

I am always the "good" everything and think about everyone before myself. When we got engaged in May we originally wanted a destination wedding. Then people started expressing concerns (including my mother, her best friends (who are like family) and childhood friends) so we started to plan a wedding in Dallas.
Then my FI got accepted into an advanced program at his school which changed our wedding date. When we started rethinking the wedding we realized that we weren't planning the wedding of our dreams, we were planning the wedding for everyone else!
We spent 4 months planning that traditional wedding! Because I was trying to be the "Good Girl" we wasted 4 months we could've spent planning the wedding we really wanted. Now we are trying to get details and things together, and I guess we started rethinking our location because of the cost to our guests. I really need to learn how to tune all that out and focus on what I and my Fiance' truly want.
This really is one of the only times that I can be justifiably selfish and I need to take full advantage!

every destination wedding comes with a price. families and friends all cant go. you knew this when you decided to have a destination wedding.
if you feel like you need your family and friends to celebrate with you. then do a reception when you get home. realistically speaking... even if you have your wedding at home... most people come to the reception only anyways. so have your ceremony in st. lucia and have a grand reception at home for your guests =)
