    Is anyone else out there severly stressed about having a destination wedding during this terrible economic time? I began planning my wedding in the Riveria Maya about a year ago for this August and now I am unsure that was wise.

    I feel terrible with some family already booked and unsure of their job stability and other friends who really want to be a part of the day and were planning on going but because of this economy can not make it. We discussed these plans with family and friends who were important to us and made sure they were able to go, which is how we made the decision to have a destination wedding but now some of the very same people cannot do it.

    I can't cancel because of those who have booked but I feel that postponing a year would be the best. Is anyone else sharing in this concern? What are your plans?

    My fiance and I both have job security and savings so we are not where the concern is, just our loved ones, including parents and siblings.

      As long as the two of you can make it - it will be a beautiful wedding. There is nothing stopping you from having an AHR when you get back to include those that can't be there.

      I am in the same position as we are having our friends and family travel from Australia to Hawaii for our wedding. But we have accepted the fact that it is our day. We have chosen to have a destination wedding and for us it will work out cheaper than having it at home and having to invite 100+ people.

        There is a thread on this already. As long as the most important folks are with you then remember its your day and you should not let that overshadow you. You can always scale down if your guest list narrows down and end up saving even more $$. I wish you well
