My fiance also reminded me that since I am the last of my girl friends to get married, they may be a little jealous because they did not do a destination wedding like we are. One of my girl friends who did do a destination wedding in Florida (we live in VA) has been really cool. I think she understands.
Another reason for the negativity is that your friends may have a vision of what a wedding looks like and you may be going against their vision, which is fine. This is your wedding and your vision of how your day will go with your husband-to-be.
I would suggest giving your friends some time. Get your save the dates ready and continue planning your day. Stick to your guns (I've had to do this with my mom especially) about what you want and do it. This day is about the celebration of the union between you and your fiance and nothing else. Your friends will come around, mine have, especially when they saw I wasn't going to change anything because they didn't like what I am doing. Good luck!

We let eveyone know almost 12 months ago that we were having a destination wedding, and gave them 22 months notice with the save the dates.
I think its one of the big things you have to decide before you choose a destination wedding - that if it ends up just being the two of you on a beach getting married - then thats OK. That was our starting point, so anything from there is a bonus.
I know that there will be people that are dissapointed becasue they can't /won't come, but at the end of the day, the wedding is not for them!
