Is it a safety concern about flying? Doesn't she know driving is more dangerous?
I had to make a similar decision. I was concerned my dad wouldn't be able to fly. I had to decide if it was OK for me to plan this even if he couldn't make it. I started to plan an a wedding in the state he lives in & realized I couldn't stand the thought of planning it. I would rather have only had a courthouse wedding than plan the other wedding I was working on. But the idea of just courthouse wedding made me really sad. Then I realized I was thinking about everyone else first & needed to think about us. I couldn't imagine my dad wanting me to be so unhappy about not having the wedding I wanted. So I went forward with it. Turns out my dad is the most excited! He has a years notice to be able to fly & says he will.
I was worried other people wouldn't like the mexico plan either. So far everyone has been so positive & they are really excited about the vacation. I can't believe I almost didn't do the wedding this way because I was worried about other people. Now that I've started planning I can tell it was definitly the right decision.
Anyway, with all that being said, maybe someone can find similar alternatives in the states. I didn't find anything in florida I liked, but I didn't look that long. I found AI dude ranches in texas, but that didn't really interest me.
