As I get older, the weddings I attend seem to get bigger and bigger, the last being over 400!!
When reflecting on their wedding days, several of my friends said that they spent so much time at their receptions having to talk to estranged relatives and friends, that they didn't have the time to really enjoy their moment!
Plus, I have a small family and never got to really have the "family vacation" experience growing up that my friends did.
I want my wedding to be intimate, really fun and memorable. I want our union to be celebrated with our closest family and friends: the people that mean the most to us and impact our lives everyday.
My fiance's family lives in Taiwan and it is actually more practical for us to have a wedding in a closer location than in the Midwest. Equal travel for everyone.
These are the reasons why we are having a destination wedding. That is why we are choosing Maui.
Although my friends and family are thrilled about our wedding choice, I find that I have to defend our choice to people or acquaintances that don't know us well. It has caused me to think alot about our decision and I am more sure now than ever that it is the right choice for us.
