    Thanks everyone for the advice. I think she will come around. Just think it was a last ditch effort to get us to change plans. It's weird being excited and sad at the same time. My FI can't really be excited b/c she knows I'm upset. Tonight we are ordering "save the date" magnets. Thats exciting! Anyone know where i can get good pics of Negril weddings so that i can print them and send them to her? Thanks!

      There are some great pics of the hotels on tripadvisor! I had a similar problem with my mother. She was less than enthused to have to travel from Ireland to Jamaica to see her only daughter get married! So I called over a couple of times with my laptop and started showing her pic's of the hotels, beaches & areas. Also had to re-assure her the travel was not going to be tough, hey as long as she can walk through an airport & sit in a chair watching movies (air travel)...it's really not hard to travel, it's just a matter of time. I keep telling her that while she's not OLD she probably won't get the chance to see somewhere so beautiful & experience such a different culture ever again! Now she can't wait! She even called me one day to tell me she watched a travel show about Jamaica. Go to trip advisor with her there & read some of the (Good) reviews to her & show her pic's. It's tough but just try to make it sound like it will be the best holiday ever!!!
      Isn't it amazing to have found someone who gets you 100%

            Welcome to the forum. Have you thought about asking her to help with certain parts of the wedding to make her feel more involved? Then maybe she'll be more excited to come.

                Congrats and Welcome.I'm in a similar situation.My Best Friend(Sister) is the only one that is coming to see me get married.My Aunt is unable to travel,My parents well thats another story.The rest of my family have other obligations to attend to.They people that are coming are yes complaining and suggesting thing that could of been done for us to have a regular wedding.We deiced on a DW because we can't see ourselves spending a lot of money on a regular wedding.
                Include your mother in all your DW arrangements.Maybe she will change her mind after seeing everything you have planned.If that don't work have a intimate dinner with her and your fiancĀ©'.Then write her a letter and tell her NOT TO OPEN IT UNTIL THE DAY AND EXACT TIME OF YOUR WEDDING CEREMONY.This way she will be connected to you in some way.
                REMEMBER:This is suppose to be a joyous and memorable day for both of you.Us BRIDES can't make everyone happy.And besides we cant have you have any bumps or nasty hives on your wedding day.You pictures will not look pretty(LOL).Have fun enjoy and make the best of your day GOOD-LUCK Keep us Posted
