Please give me some advice guys. I don't want to seem selfish and like a Bridezilla but ppl are just ignoring my plans for my day. I understand that the cruise is expensive but it would be way way more if we went with NCL RCL or Princess.

Just remember it is your day and the last thing you want is to let others issues become yours. It will all work out beautifully and you won't care who is where when it comes time to say "I Do", as long as you and your husband are in each others arms.

I stayed on land, but over half of my guests didn't stay for the whole week as was planned, they could only do a long weekend (kids, work, cost, etc)
Also, as someone who gets sea sick, I would probably have asked you privately if I could fly in for the wedding, knowing I would be on my own for transportation.
I do not think you are being a Bridezilla at all! But, I will play devil's advocate.
Your wedding day is very special and should be what is the most meaningful to you and your FI. I know how easy it is to get caught up in the details. I was about to disown every family member and friend we had by the time the wedding date actually rolled around! Keep in mind that no matter how well things are planned out, there will be some hiccups. The important thing is that you are marrying the person you love and that friends and family will be there to celebrate with you. Everything will work out how it is supposed to.

I agree with what everyone else has said about making it clear that if guests are not cruising they will be responsible for all details. I think it's fair to encourage people to come on the cruise, and to explain that if they don't it is at their own risk. And I definitely don't think you should have to pay for uninvited guests.
PLUS, the other thing I've been told about cruise weddings with ceremonies in port is that you always run the risk of not being able to dock, or of having the itinerary changed due to weather or other issues (this is rare but it has happened to me a couple of times). So maybe let your guests know about those risks too.
