I know people aren't made of money

I know it's expensive to come to a DW. Since day one we've said that and that if you can come great, if not we totally understand. Why do people still feel the need to tell us that:
$1600 is a lot of money you know.
In this economy how can you expect that of people.
I'm so excited to come even though it's a lot of money.
If only money grew on trees.
I feel like I can never catch up on my bills but I guess it's worth the money to be at your wedding.
omg I could list a million more money woes I've been hearing from people about how much it is. It's getting me so aggrivated I want to change the whole front page of my wedding website to huge bold letters: "I KNOW IT'S A LOT OF MONEY BUT PLEASE STOP REMINDING ME OF IT EVERYTIME I SEE YOU"
It is what it is and I know this conversation will never see its end but I don't even respond to it now. I go into robot mode as soon as someone starts it up. Just nod up and down and 'i know' and 'mhm' my way right through it lol

As I keep saying to my fiance- when I am completely, totally consumed by something- AKA MY OWN WEDDING, the last thing I need to hear are people being negative and giving me their opinions. Since when do people not even put on a good face and try to even PRETEND they are happy for you?? I would NEVER do what people are doing to us, the same thing that is happening to you. It is awful! Why can't people just say these things to other people and not to us??
I know EXACTLY how you feel, I have bawled my eyes out more times then I could count about this. I am a tough girl but this is just too much for me to take. People acting like idiots about this..
We will get through it, I promise. Just keep in mind that you are doing things YOUR way, no one else's. Take the attitude of "tough S*&t", they can spend the damn money. I've gotten there because of the people you are describing.
HANG IN THERE- You are not the only one getting this. Stay strong!!!

That is when you should politely say "well good thing this isnt your wedding and you do not have to be there"
simply put. it may sound rude. but their comments are rude and unneccessary!
This happens to every DW bride... Im sure. Stick up for yourself. Dont just agree. No one is forcing anyone to go ON VACATION!!! lOl

There are 6 kids in my family and I am the seventh, all my siblings are married and not one person in my family is coming besides my mom. I was very upset at first but I realize that this is OUR day and a DW was what I have always dreamed of, so if they dont want to join us Tough Shit (as the Future Wagners said).
We have 44 people joining us mostly friends and my FI family and no matter who comes or doesnt come, this is what we wanted and I know we will have a great time!!

I am lucky to have an incredibly (surprisingly) supportive family of the destination wedding thing ... anyone who has made any comments I have been polite (but quick) to say "We are well aware that some people we are very close to wont be able to make it due to financial constrictions, but it is something we are willing to deal with"
