@kmk2016 - Thank you for saying that. I think the reality is my family does not like inconvenience. From the moment that she found out it would be in Mexico she was against attending. I know of another destination wedding where the bride's wheelchair bound grandmother attended. Even my aunt/godmother will most likely not attend (who is perfectly healthy). At least there will still be a city hall legal part that I'm having her attend - and this I rearranged for her benefit. We wanted to quietly get legally married before Mexico but decided to do it after Mexico (and where another white dress) for my grandmother's benefit although she still isn't really pleased. Guess I should really just stop trying to please everyone!
You nailed it there - you need to stop trying to please everyone.
Trust me, YOU CAN'T!!!!! (In the beginning when I was doing more of that - I would run in the direction of one suggestion only for that person to RSVP no anyways - grrrr - so I stopped that months back!)
I think you need to go with your heart on what you want for your wedding and accept that some people won't come for the stupidest of reasons, even people very close to you. If they want to be there, they could go!
