    My name is Tory Zumberge.
    I hope my wedding date will be somewhere b/t Oct 2010 and Feb 2011.
    There are too many DW to choose from so I am still working on that part. My in laws do not want to get passports but my fiance and I always hoped to do a MX/carribean weddng at an All-Inclusive resort. Any suggestions for convincing them that leaving the US is an ok idea?

      Hi! Have you tried just coming to the conclusion that you'll TRY and make it affordable & convenient for everybody, but in the long run ~ it's your day. Make a decision that makes YOU happy ~ you only have this one day thats "YOURS", and stick to it! Let everybody know that you would LOVE them to come, but understand if they can't. JMOO ~ Goodluck! : )

          Welcome Tory- congrats on your engagment! Wow, I'm sorry to hear your future inlaws don't want to get passports, I hope they come around. Are they just nervous about travelling and flying? I don't really have any advice, but good luck.
          Loving married life!

            Welcome from another Austinite! :) I say pick a place that has the most conveniences like they would get at home in the states. You know nothing too rustic, and they should have a great time!

              Hi Tory, welcome to the forum and congrats on your upcoming wedding. I think it's totally normal to have some issues with some family members at the beginning of your planning process, but in the end everyone will love your DW and talk about it for years to come. :-)

              Happy Planning

                Welcome from another TX bride!! Maybe once you have a location in mind you can point out all the pros of a DW and the location to your in-laws. Maybe even help them with the process of applying for their passport? good luck! You are going to love being a part of this forum! Happy Planning!
