PREACH girl!! I have been getting that a lot lately and it can be a bit disheartening but my FI and I have decided that as long as my parents are there, we are not concerned about anyone else. So, sofar there are four, me him, mom and dad (and most importantly GOD) and anyone else will just be a pleasent surprise!

when we first told people we were having a destination wedding - there were a few right off the bat who said they weren't going because 'why would you have a destination wedding that's so selfish', 'Mexico is dirty' or 'it's not safe' now the excuse is 'oh there's the oil spill' - people are going to make up excuses as to why there aren't going - i used to care but in the end just like what Bride Loving CJ said - all that matters is that you and your future husband are there with the people that you care about (in our case - our immediate family)

 

i didn't think there would be so much drama in having a destination wedding but take everything with a grain of salt. I've calmed down quite a bit since I started planning and keep telling myself 'no one or nothing else matters as long as my fiance and me are happy with what we chose' This is OUR special day ladies! It's okay for us to be a little selfish once in our lives! Don't let anyone or anything ruin it!

 

Good Luck :)

our families hated the idea after we first got engaged, but i have to say now that the wedding is getting closer, everyone is getting excited about the idea of a whole wedding weekend in mexico. stick with your guns - the people that mean the most to you will still go and you'll have a blast!

It's ridiculous. If people bothered doing any research at all before jumping to these conclusions they would see that there is absolutely nothing to worry about. You're just as at risk at any wedding in any large city in the US, but you don't see people worrying about that.

I've been pretty cool about the whole thing until now. My MOH is considering not going because her husband is worried about violence. Obviously he has no idea what he is talking about, but he is her husband and his opinion is going to matter to her. What can I possibly do to change her mind?

Oie, well so far we've had someone complain about EVERY location we've mentioned!!!

 

Cuba- the food is horrible, and the conditions are sub-par

Jamaica- even black people don't want to go here (no joke someone said this)

Domican Republic- the service is horrible, and the beaches are dirty

Mexico- what haven't I heard about MX- it's unsafe, it's over priced, the workers are lazy because they get paid to much,

 

I have heard the worst and nastiest things, I'm about to drop kick the next Negative Nelly that comes my way, it's just so ridiculous that people feel the need to share their BS theories, especially the ones that make me stop and say to myself "wtf you did NOT just say that"

 

so annoying, but we're still gonna go away :)

I say have your wedding where you want!! It is your special day, not everyone else's. If they want to come, come, if they don't, don't. As long as you are happy, that is all that matters!!

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
