I wish I could make you feel better about this. People just like complaining. At least you recognize that any place you'd have it, people would be complaining. Remind them that it's YOUR wedding, not theirs.

FI and I went through the SAME thing...mostly with his two sisters. When we sent out our STD we got an email saying "any cheaper hotels near by?" not even a hello or congrats. We also got several nasty emails from the other sister how we are inconsiderate for having a DW and putting the costs on our guests rather than ourselves IRK The thing is they all live in the east coast and my family is in CA, which is where FI and I live not to mention all my extended family is in Europe. Having the wedding in Boston was never an option and I'm sorry I'm not having my wedding for his sisters. It was a pretty big ordeal and took away from my excitement, but now that we are two months out everyone has finally calmed down and I think they realize they need to just shut up and accept it or dont come I hope things calm down for you too and dont feel guilty because what my FI I kept having to remind me was that its OUR wedding not anyone else's and we need to do what makes us happy!

Maybe you can plan a special something in Boston and California after the wedding for those that can't make it. It may make them feel better and stop complaining. Just a thought.

it sucks but nothing you really can do. people are whiners. we're 3 months until our wedding and even though my sister is booked every time i talk to her she complains about how expensive it is. ppl may bitch about the cost but i have no doubt in my mind that after the trip they will have so much fun and it'll be such an awesome vacation with family and my friends that they'll think it was totally worth it.

On a side note FI parents told us b4 we decided to do this ie put money down that they would both be there and now neither one is coming. And he says whatever but I know it bothers him. But we made our decision and we are sticking to it. Thia day is about US not them.
