    Thank you all soo much for your replies! I love this site! I hope I find a great travel agent! The one I had was horrible! She was always busy and never replied to me on time.
    And you guys are all right! I should get married in the Bahamas! It IS my day! We'll see what happens!
    Thank you once again!! :)

      Hi Cindy,

      Everyone on here is right. If you want the Bahamas then go for it! No matter where you pick to get married, there will be people telling you it's too expensive and they can't attend. It's just the nature of a DW.

      You only get to do this once, so if you want the Bahamas then you should have the Bahamas!

        Thank you!! You're absolutely right! I wish my fiancĀ© could also agree with me on this one. People have started brainwashing him telling him its too much money and he's been having second thoughts. I don't know what to do anymore. I just stopped planning until we figure something out. I hope it all works out at the end.

          I had the same issues when I started planning with my Fiances family, we decided to have a reception at home as well for those who could not attend. We originally wanted to go to either St. Thomas or St. Lucia and changed our location to Punta Cana to make it a little more affordable for those who wanted to attend. We are shocked to see that in 3 Weeks we have had 30 people book and some who were worried about the cost. Like others have said those who are important wont miss your wedding and this is your day, do what you want to do! You will be shocked on who attends and if there not there Oh well, its about you not them!! Good Luck!!

            Thank you!! I was telling my fiancĀ© the same thing! As long as my immediate family and close friends are there, that's all that matters! He completely agreed with me and said he just wanted to make me happy! I just gotta find the right travel agent and get a good deal! Can't wait!! And i'm glad everything worked out for you!!

                Hey Cindy,

                I have been considering Nassau, Bahamas as well. A good hotel that I found was the Sheraton on Cable Beach, not a bad package. Anything else I find I will definitely share with you.
                MRS JONES 2 BE!

                  Hi Cindy,
                  I had the same problem. Our families are huge and everyone had different opinions. Some of them didn't know how to handle the news and some were disappointed and said they wouldn't be able to make it right off the bat, even before they looked into everything (this was back in february) now most of them already booked their hotel rooms :) People are shocked at first because when they hear destination wedding all they see are dollar signs. My fiance and I live in California and all our family is on the east coast. I sure as heck wasn't going to try to plan a wedding on the east coast from california and the Bahamas was a lot less expensive for us. Once I made people realized that the Bahamas was an easier and shorter trip for them than California they started to turn around. I think if you give people enough time to book a trip and save they will not regret it. but just know that there will be people that cannot make it, but that goes with wherever you would've had your wedding. Of course you want everyone that is important to you to be there on your special day, but that is simply out of your control. The next time someone questions your ideas for anything having to do with your wedding make sure you remember it's only what YOU want. no regrets :) good luck! and congrats!

                      I'm getting married in Nassau too {because my FI lives there} I think you should have your wedding where you want - most people will complain initally, but break their necks to come - I heard a few say if it wasn't for the wedding they would never get to go to Bahamas in their life - if you guys need any info about vendors (other than on this great site) let me know - I'm down there quite often and can check some things out for you! Happy Planning!
