    bcbride....wow, really? jellyfish?
    You know what is getting to me the most is that I'm not the kind of person to put up with anyone's BS. I'm a nurse (almost, done with school in May) and have been thick skinned all my life. I don't know why all of a sudden I'm letting peoples' opinions get to me. Hopefully it will get easier as time goes by (only been engaged 1 month). It's very comforting to know I'm not the only one with difficult/selfish people in my life. I honestly think a lot of them are jealous that they had their wedding/reception in some boring church/banquet hall, while all of us are going to be in paradise for ours! Here's to all of us who have stepped out of the box! Cheers!

        LOL! The jellyfish... I have heard so much but that tops the list! I used to defend "why are you having it in Mexico when you can have it here?" with "it is too expensive here(NY)", but then one of my "friends" said, "well of course it is cheaper for you when you are passing the cost on to the guests!" OH NO SHE DIDN"T!!!!!! I could not believe that! Now I am not even justifying it, I am so sick of people complaining. Come if you want, if you don't stay home!!!

            LOL, I might have had to tell that person that they just suck at life. Come on, who says something like that? Lets keep this thread going, I'm sure we will all get a good laugh at the ridiculous things people have to say about destination weddings...

              -Taguania, I've had people say that to me too, "why do you have to go to Mexico, why can't you just have it around here?" In fact when I told a few people it was going to be Mexico, they said "oh, well we will have to get you to change your mind about that." Seriously, they have all had their weddings (some of them 2 weddings, lol) and done what they wanted, now it's our turn. Maybe I just need to drastically cut my guest list, haha
              I often wonder if it would be more fun with a smaller group anyway! :) You all will have a great time no matter who does and does not make it to Mexico! It's your dream, it's your life. Don't let anyone bring you down! In my opinion, it's their loss!

                Oh I totally feel for you!! We have had some guests voice their opinions on the cost, location and even said "why don't you just have the whole thing at home" (because we are having an AHR). At first I really let the comments eat away at me, and even went so far as to change the location to make it less costly for our guests. I'm now starting to think that you can't please everyone, and sadly some people will comlpain no matter what you decide - so in that case it sucks to be them because everyone else will be having a blast while they mope (or don't come at all).

                  Don't worry about the whiners and complainers. Let them stay home if they prefer not to travel so far. It's your wedding don't stress about it. Everyone will have something to say.

                      Yeah, anyone who complains about $580 AI vacation for 5 days really has no sense of how much these things cost.

                      I will not tolerate complainers at my wedding. My sentiment is unless they are the groom, their presence is not a necessity. If they come, I don't want to hear a peep of whining about it. If they can't accomplish that, they should STAY HOME and save me the headache and the money.

                      Speaking of which, I would have put that person in their place who said that the bridegroom is passing the cost onto the guest; that is absolutely OBNOXIOUS
