      So far planning has been hell. I found this website while researching people having parent issues about their destination weddings and was hoping for advise and encouragement.

      Thanks and I look forward to getting to know everyone.

      Choosing a destination was hellish for me and my fiance too....we are currently both living in michigan, but we met working together in cancun, mexico....his family is all from/currrently living in Acapulco, mexico. We got hit from both sides - couldnt have it up here because that wasnt fair to his family, couldnt have it in acapulco because that wasnt fair to my family (its VERY expensive to travel to acapulco) - so we opted for a central location that had meaning to us. People still gripe about it, but we chose a place that made us happy and that BOTH sides of the family had to travel to.

      The best advice anyone gave me was to plan what our dream wedding would be....in the end you'll find that those who matter most will be by your side, no matter where you get married :)

        It is hard enough to plan a destination wedding and it is even harder to have to deal with family members' dissaproval and comments. Remember, the wedding is just the beginning of your and your FI's life...the best is yet to come. The people that care about you and are able to attend, will do it! Don't listen to the nay sayers.

        Sometimes you will get more support from the BDW forum family than your own. Your BDW sisters will share research, encouragment and advise.

        Just remember your wedding will be special! It will!

          Hey Nicole, welcome to the forum. I hope that since joining this forum some of your stress has been alleviated and things have been going better. Just remember that not everyone is going to agree with your decisions but when it comes down to it, the only two people that are in the relationship are you and your fiance (future husband). Once it starts to be the two of you and everyone else, not so good! So keep your head up and enjoy planning your wedding
          BDW the best place for my TYPE A personality!
