    Hi Kendra, congrats and welcome to the forum! A destination wedding can be a lot of stress too, but it depends what kind of wedding you have in mind! As for the family and friends, I'd speak to the really important ones to get a feel on their take on it. Expect some excitement and some objections - it can be a lot more costly for them to attend!

    Good luck!

      Thank you for all the responses and advice. I think once we talk to our parents my anxiety will go away. This forum is so great!

        I've learned that a destination wedding doesn't seem to mean less stress (at least not for me). The biggest thing that stressed me out was prices and not being able to get them early enough for my liking. You need to decide what is important to you and your FI and see is destination works for you. For the most part there are people you love that will be unable to attend, so you have to be prepared and be ok with that. Good luck!

              Very true... a DW is a wedding and with it comes stress and lots of opinions from everyone! Talk to your FI and see what you both would like for YOUR day and work from there.

              Congrats and Welcome!!!

                Congrats! Happy Planning!

                Just do what makes you and your fiance happy!
                I've booked Heather Parker for my photographer for my April 2, 2011 wedding in Ochi Rios, Jamaica. If anyone is getting married in Jamaica days before or after me and is interested sharing her travel expenses to save few wedding budget bucks, let me know. Take a look at her work for Moon Dance...

                    My parents weren't too happy about the destination wedding initially but now they are really excited to come along. So be prepared for a little inital shock from them.

                      hey Kendra,

                      First of all, no wedding planning is straight forward!! lol just so you're not disillusioned...

                      what I've learnt is there's always someone with something to say about every decision you make....so the best policy is to make decisions based on what YOU both want. my family weren't overly keen on the idea, and I haven't heard the last of how much it's going to cost them to be there, but it's a 2 week holiday for them as well at the end of the day and I know they wouldn't not be there.

                      We both phoned family members when we initially had the idea of a destination wedding and asked them all first if we did it would they come. That's a good starting block i'd say...but do just follow your heart and your wishes...this is YOUR day.

                      Good luck :)
