    My family are the ones that have been giving me a hard time about our DW.

    My FI's family are loving the concept and they are inviting the whole world. His family is from Jamaica and they don't mind traveling. I have to try and stop them from inviting so many people. We only expected about 50 guests but we have almost doubled that amount.

      HA!!! I heard the same exact thing. I was so shocked. We got many other rude comments, including "I'll look forward to party you throw when you get back". THis "party" was conveniently located in my yard. Now it didn't happen, nor will it ever, but I was so furius that people had the f**king nerve to go as far as to invite themselves to my house when I had said a dozen times that my wedding would be in MExico. PERIOD! THis comment was on an RSVP too.

      The people who did come to our wedding REALLY wanted to be there and it made the day extraordinary. We don't regret a second of it.

      Even now that we are back people insist on being extremely inconsiderate.

      A few times already we have experienced a family member nonchalantly saying something dispassionate like, "Oh, aren't you guys married now?" This would be after an hour or so in their company. Idiots.

      The, "When is the party?" still hasn't stopped.

      What pisses me off the most is the obvious fact that these people think that what happened in Mexico wasn't real and that now that we are back we owe them a "real" wedding.

        Simply tell people this "When we want your opinion, we'l give it to you."

          So called friend-I don't know if I want to go or not because we can only afford to go on vacation for a few days and if we go we will lose one whole day of our vacation for your wedding!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
          Wow, that is just priceless---- sorry, I had to laugh at the audacity of people! It just floors me---

          This just proves the only difference between animals and humans is that humans open their mouths and prove their stupidity, time and time again!

            When people say shit like this, I just want to take the kid gloves off and say to them: "Stop being such a dick."

              Okay I'm more sinister than I realized. . . yours are dignified. I was nice to the first 2 haters, then it turned into this:

              To the married ones- Don't hate on us because you had your wedding at a banquet hall (fill in the blank with the weak traditional place they chose)

              To the unmarried ones - If you find someone who actually wants to marry you one day I hope people put you through this bullshit too

                      It seems that all of us have had the same issues, which seems odd to me since more and more people are doing destination weddings. I am from Oklahoma and live in New York, and apparently people were expecting me to have my wedding in Oklahoma. Well that last time I checked there wasn't a beach in Oklahoma, so I'm going to Mexico. I actually researched, and found it would cost people LESS to go to Mexico than to Oklahoma, so why not have a vacation on a beach? The most important people will be there (aka you and your fiancee), and you will be married. Everyone else that can join is just icing on the cake. It amazes me how people make this about themselves...they really show their true colors. Be strong, live your dream...you only get to do it once.
