Have people questioned your reason for doing a DW?

I hope everything works out for you two!

I had my former MOH try to convince me to have a wedding at home so she could come (needless to say, she's not MOH now). I was extremely hurt and quite frankly pissed off. I thought she would be more supportive, even if she couldn't make it. But, mind you, one of my BM's is planning to travel from overseas (Germany) to be there for me.
I mean, where a bride and groom choose to marry is up to them, especially if they're fronting the bill or most of it. I noticed that some ppl get offended when a couple decides to marry out of their hometown and then get mad at the couple if they (the guest) chooses to go. I'm sorry, but no one pulled your hair and dragged you out there (sorry about the analogy but it makes my point). To me, every wedding could be considered a DW for someone who doesn't live there. I feel like a good guest is someone who will support the couple even if they can or cannot attend.
Also, hypothetically speaking... let's say you changed your plans to accommodate others at home and for whatever reason those ppl still couldn't or wouldn't come to the wedding. How would that make you feel? For that reason, We're doing it our way!
The view overlooking Kingston... January 2009. One Love!!

"Jonathan and Allison, Jay and I would love to be at your wedding but since we are not among the "Rich and Famous" Ha Ha! we will not be able to afford to attend. You have chosen a beautiful place to have your wedding and know it will be a wonderful memory for the two of you. Jay and I are just so happy to be able to go to Panama City once a year. Just know that we will be thinking about you that day. Again I want to say how much fun we had at your parents and meeting all your family and friends and Allison's parents. That was a great day. Wish ya'll were just getting married there at that beautiful spot in the woods so we could witness the wedding. We love you, Prissy & Jay P.S. Thank you for the Boarding Pass Seat A-do you need it back?"
Are You Kidding ME!!!!! I am going to lose my mind having to deal with these people!! Of course when I read it to my FI he laughed so hard, but he couldn't believe anyone would actually write something SO completely tacky on our Wedding Website (which, by the way, I spent so much time and effort on and explained that we understood if people couldn't make it and will be having an AHR at home). I am literally at my wits end here! It is very comforting to know that I am not going through this alone!

ANYWHO, about you, delete that terribly tacky post from your website! That is completely uncalled for. They just didn't have the balls to say anything to your face. How about they don't go to Panama City for about 2 years and go to your wedding with that money?? People are crazy. Those who REALLY want to be there will. All others.. well.. it's better that they aren't there to try and steal the spotlight of YOUR day. )
