You sit them all down and say "You've had your wedding so piss right off - either support me or don't i'm not changing my mind"
We had that 2 luckily I have no fear of telling people to "poke off" if they whinge at me about something that is in truth bugger all to do with them.
Its as the other girls say come, it would be nice to see you, but if you don't shame you missed a good wedding.
I was hoping FMIL would bitch so I could tell her to piss of unfortunately she booked!! bollox lmao

Do you have an actual date and resort booked yet? My parents were all for the destination wedding idea, but my fiance's family didn't seem to take us seriously. It seems like once we had a date and time formally booked, they realized it was really going to happen and are actually excited about it now. Now we are having the opposite problem-- they are inviting too many people! Maybe this could be the case with your family once they realize that you WILL be getting married in Mexico, no matter how much they b*tch and moan about it?
This day IS about you and you are allowed to be selfish! Especially if you are the ones paying for it. The people who matter most will find a way to get there! Stay firm. You and your fiance should have the wedding YOU want!

My great-uncle scoffed at my decision for Jamaica. He said that I might as well be getting married at a dump on the south-side of Chicago. Apparently in his mind they are equal in safety. All this, despite the fact that he's never been to Jamaica and has no experience to speak of. Fine. Don't come. No skin off my nose. Also, my grandma said that she won't be able to travel that far. Well, she really never travels more than 5 miles from her house, which would really limit my choices were I to have it here in the states anyways. I'll make sure there are lots of pictures and video.
Well, I think those of us who do go to Jamaica will have much more fun without the naysayers and whiners. The same for your wedding. If the people who bitched about it don't come, you'll probably end up having more fun. Plus, as a previous poster said, you're paying for it/planning it - you make the decisions.

I can't believe you're getting so much grief, especially after you even went on site visits and everything! (It sounds like you chose somewhere in Cancun! Exciting!)
For sure my mother was NOT happy with the DW idea at first...I still don't think she gets it entirely:-)
She kept asking how it could be a religious ceremony on the beach -- lol:-)
I told her it wasn't going to be...She's had TWO weddings, this one's mine:)
(I said it nicer than that:-))
It also means my two brothers won't be coming (money, time-off issues)...but we knew that when we decided on a DW some people wouldn't be able to come.
Do what YOU two want. Those who want to come will, those who don't, won't.
And you'll still have a fabulous day/vacation with everyone who DID make the effort!

I have decided to start telling everyone how it is...haha. Even at work I have been saying it how it is today...
Simistar we might be giving SMB another try for our honeymoon.
My FI loved it so much he can't wait to go back! I can't wait to see your pictures...
We are finalizing our dates with our resort and then we will have to have some serious chats with the families to let them know we are SERIOUS about this and that if they love us they need to support us!
