    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 :)

      Congrats!!! Welcome aboard, you are going to be addicted to this site for the next few weeks, if not longer!! lol

      You are never going to please everyone, in the end you have to be happy, but comfortable with your decision. You can always have the at home reception to show off yourwedding pics or video to include all the guests who couldn't make it.

      There is soo much information on here!! Enjoy!!

        Congratulations, Kendra!

        Yes to what everyone has said! I think the most important thing is to be up front with everyone involved from the beginning. Less stress over the money part of it if they know it's coming. Make sure the people you care most about are on board before picking your date or signing anything. Also, make sure that when you pick a resort to go with, you know up front what the stipulations are about using outside people and/or tailoring your wedding to your wants. We've learned the hard way about not asking the right questions up front!

        I don't think planning a DW is any less stressful, lol! After all, you're essentially planning a vacation for two families. But all the vendor stuff is much easier. And this site it a big help! Good luck!
