    Eventually you will stop caring what people think. It's your wedding!

        I know!!! That's what I keep saying...it's not $1500 just for a wedding...you get to spend a WEEK in sunny Mexico during the coldest month of the year!! Sheesh...quit complaining. I'll be thinking of you shoveling 10 feet of snow in -40 C while I'm on the beach!

          I'm so over guests moaning about this now! At first I was just as annoyed as you, but now I just let it go over my head!!
          I'm starting to realise that some people just think DW's are not real weddings and they think they can get away with saying things like this or letting you down at the last minute!

            Its amazing how many brides on here are experiencing this. People are rude. They want it to be about them. I make it a point to tell people that there is NO PRESSURe for them to be there. In other words...save your excuses and gripes for someone who cares! No hurt feelings over here! The only people that we insist are there are our parents. Everyone else...oh well!

              We are very lucky, we haven't received any "money woes" complaints. It's probably because we knew who we wanted to invite. We told my family first we were getting married in DR, then his family and our friends. The first response is "Can we go". We told them that we would love to have them join us, but if they can't afford it, we understand. I told everyone I didn't want to hear about the expense. If they can afford it Great!, if not...I don't want to hear it! Plain and simple. I haven't heard one person complain. I gave them enough notice. I've even heard that some have budgeted for the wedding so that they could save money every month in order to be able to attend. We have amazing family and friends.

                I am with Mkandola - both of our families are very supportive of our idea of going away. Most of them see it as vacation time!! Sorry that you are going through this. So much for less stress!

                  It is so nice to be surrounded by you girls!
                  As I said in my earlier post, it is really unbelievable that people feel it is acceptable to act like this. In my case, I am from NY and my fiance is from South Florida so it would have been a DW for SOMEONE's side of the family! AND not only that- every wedding we have been to for our friends has been in their hometowns where nobody lives anymore so it has cost us just as much for flight and airfare as it would for this- and we going cold places in the dead of winter just for these weddings. So seriously- why do people even open thier mouths??

                    I have the same situation only the ones who are complaining about the cost are the same guests who go on vacation to somewhere in the Carribean EVERY YEAR. Oo we all of a sudden don't have the money to come to your wedding but we will be going somewhere else later in the year and we just came back from somewhere. HONESTLY

                      I know how you're feeling. I'm getting the same thing...I'm also getting the "why can't you just get married in the states like everyone else?" This is ususally by the people who have never traveled or hate to travel. UGH...People are relentless, I always reply: "it's not your wedding" or "because that's what WE wanted to do, and we want to do it our way."
