Sorry off track. Check it out www.stthomasweddingpackages.com. It is your day. MIL will love her son if the decision he makes makes him happy. You may take about 60 70 years when she will decide to forgive you for snatching her o nly baby away.

Anyway, not the point.
The point is that if you think it's going to be better, easier etc. for you to have just his family there...then go for it! I agree w/ the rest of the girls...don't worry about tradition and all that...take advantage of the smaller group and all the fun stuff you can do with just a few people. Be creative and have fun w/ it. Maybe Marty and Aunt can fan you constantly and hold your champagne glasses while you say your vows. lol! ;-)
(I totally wouldn't worry about chairs for them, btw. Unless you've got some super long vows...I imagine they could stand with you guys. Just the few chairs facing you might feel funny!)
Also, I'm certain the hotel/Maye must have something they can do as far as the witness thing goes. How else to people elope? You know?
I can't wait to hear what you decide you want! :-)

Part of me is really drawn to the idea of it just being my FI and I.... and making it a very intimate and personal event....but it just wouldn't fly with our family and friends Which is OK, because the other part of me can't imagine my wedding without them.
I think you have to do whatever feels best to the two of you. I like the dinner and walk on the beach idea that others have mentioned. Maybe you could stay at a small, luxurious "boutique" hotel, or a bed and breakfast.
I have a co-worker getting married in Jamaica, it will just be the two of them and her father. I'll see what she has planned and let you know.

I think it's going to be special either way if it's small and intimate or a a group. What do you really want Tammy? I think that walk along the beach after is so romantic!!!

Tammy, it is going to be amazing - no matter what you decide. If you can't uninvite the other guests just amke it VERY clear that once the wedding is over you gusy are on your HONEYMOON - which means no guy friends tagging along!
