Guilt for Chosing DW
Posted 22 September 2009 - 11:38 AM
I am excluding grandparents from my wedding by going to Mexico but that was a sacrifice I decided I was ready to make. They are excited about the at home reception with photos and video of the event.

SusieQ...I thought my estraged father had nerve...but your ex-hubby wins the prize I laughed out loud when I read your post!!!
Amandalsu...yes the Atlantis DOES often have great rates. This past summer I have seen rates as low as $169 a night....something I want to talk to the Atlantis about when I book!!! The truth is that tourism is suffering there too and they also just built so many additional high-end rooms. However, it seems that the Wedding Dept could care less!! LOL

It is tough to bear the guilt and to say 'sorry' to your family members and friends who can't afford to go. But if a DW with your closest loved ones is what you want. Then do it!!

As long as the people we love most can be there...and we have made a financial commitment to pay the expenses of any necessary party that can't afford it....I am going to stand firm unless my FI has an objection.
GOOD LUCK and stand firm -- sometimes standing up for your dreams may feel like a nightmare, but as long as your memories are sweet in the end, it will all be worth it!

2 days later, a horrible phone call from a brother living in another state that ended in the ending of their relationship as brothers pretty much, a fight with his sister, and his parents sat us down to try and change our minds! It's ridiculous! BUT you are NOT selfish. This is your one and only chance for it to be all about you and what you want. We've learned to look at it as this is OUR day, the vows are for US, and we will have a big reception when we get back home. Everyone is still invited if they'd like to be there to support us, if not, no hard feelings. Wedding and honeymoon in one saves us money, and definitely my parents. We don't want our wedding to be putting on a show for other people, it's for us.
Basically, do it! We all have to stick it out together, haha.
At Home Reception: May 7, 2011
25 guests + bride + groom booked
