Unfortanely, its my turn to vent :~(

Since Hurricane Dean, my FI is now talking about NOT having a destination wedding! I do NOT want to have a local wedding. Plus the extra stress of our family putting in their 2 cents about having a wedding away. I'm not sure what I can do to convince him that a destination wedding will be okay.
My favorite cousin, who was one of my best friends, is totally upset with me right now since I was honest with her about how I didn't like her current relationship. So she is no longer talking to me!
One of my sisters is telling me that I'm jealous of her and that's the only reason I want to have a wedding away, so she won't be going!
My FI's family .... thats a whole other story in itself. (I dont think the forum has enough bandwith to tell that story!)
I have yet to book anywhere because I can't decide where I want to go. I originally wanted to do St. Thomas but since I was concerned about my guests expenses and trying to be considerate, Jamaica was the runner-up. But if most of my guests keep bitching, I think I will just elope. I refuse to let them put me under any more unneccessary stress.
Out loud I say I dont care if none of my family is there, because in the end, its really about me and my FI (my new family). But deep down inside, I will truly be devastated if they aren't!
I'm starting to rethink this whole destination wedding thing! Even though this is ALWAYS what I wanted to do. Something small and simple.
Okay, I'm rambling.... so I'll just leave it at that. Thanks for listening! What is a girl to do?
These are all the emotions I'm going through!

As far as the hurricane scare goes, maybe look into some areas that arent prone to hurricanes, or and, make sure you dont plan durring hurricane season. If you do this maybe your FI will be more at ease.
Hope that helped a little

Truth is, anything can go wrong anywhere at anytime. If you really have your heart set on a DW, then do it!
Is Jamaica less expensive than St. Thomas?! I found St. Thomas to be insanely inexpensive which is why I picked that location. Althought I do vaguely remember the flights out of HGA being more expensive than they were for me coming from NJ.

I'm sure in light of recent events, many people are feeling the same way your FI is. Weather is a big concern for any wedding, let alone a DW. There are definitely better times of the year to get married than others when weather is an important factor. This is definitely hurricane season in the Carribean, so probably not the best time to plan a DW. You should sit down with your FI and do some research on your location together. Maybe he'd feel better if you chose a different date during a "safer" time of year! Don't give up on your DW dream. And remember, despite all the family stress that many of the BDW brides have gone through, I don't think there are any that regret their decision to do a DW!

When you talk DW does it have to be out of the country?
There are some gorgeous beaches in the US.
If not a beach what about another US location?
If out of the country, what about somewhere on the other coast, like Cabo San Lucas in Mexico? Hurricanes are not as common there.
Where would be your dream DW?
