    Yeah, it has been hard. We almost changed our minds because of it but then we decided that it was about us as a family and that we should do what makes us happy. Our daughter Hannah is really excited so that makes it even more special!!

    stay strong Angela!!! 

     

    most of our friends & family have warmed up to the idea. there are a few who are still "what the hell? planning our vacation FOR us?!" and to them I say - whatever!! 

     

    This is our day, it's about us, and starting our marriage.

     

    While we hope all of our close friends and family will choose to join us, we know that just won't happen. My FI has told me several times that we can't plan around other people, or make their choices for them.

        Good for you!! You will be so glad that you didn't change your mind. AND, those guests who weren't as thrilled about the idea (like some of mine because we had ours in Mexico) will change their minds once they are there. All of my guests came away saying it was a beautiful wedding and they were happy it was a destination wedding because they had a blast--and yes, some of these people weren't exactly thrilled when they received the wedding invite. Besides, I think one of the most important things that changes peoples' minds aside from their attendance is seeing YOU happy and excited. So keep planning and get ready for a great time!

          To keep it small. I don't do well in crowds, and want this to be something I will truly enjoy. I would be happy if just my FI and I were there, but my close family would be very upset so we are keeping it very close.

            Because it will be more intimate and it will be cheaper!

                Who doesn't love a vacation, especially in paradise. Plus it's a whole lot cheap, and much less tiring when it comes to planning :)

                  My fiance and I have attended probably around 20 weddings in the past 4 years. I just wanted something different:)
                  46 booked and counting!

                    So many reasons why I wanted a destination wedding!  First of all, I didn't want to spend tens of thousands of dollars on one day when we're getting a house all in the same year.  I like the thought of celebrating with a small, close group of family and friends.  It also puts my Fiance and I on even playing field as far as family goes.  Most of my family lives in a different province/countries, his family all lives around here.  We're asking the same thing of everyone, so it makes it more fair I guess you could say.

                     

                    To be honest I never really dreamed of my wedding until I actually saw one while on vacation.  I thought then, now THAT is my dream wedding - so destination wedding it was:)
