Amen Branya2012!!! We have been going through the same nightmare with family members... well, his family to be exact. They are currently boycotting us having a destination wedding and refusing to come. They only want to come if we have an at home "traditional"wedding. That's a funny request coming from people with an enormous family and who are refusing to help contribute at all. They have spared no words trying to convince us how selfish WE are being. So ironic. Anyway, good for you for standing up to whomever is giving you trouble!! It IS definitely only about you two and it is your day. It is amazing how quickly people tend to forget that. Just keep standing your ground. Hopefully they will come around, but if not, it will defintely be their loss. Good luck to you and happy planning!!!
PS There are several blogs on here dedicated to this which I have found to be very therapeutic whether you want to vent or just hear other brides stories to make you feel not so alone

We are currently going through battles with unhappy family members more than we are planning. Actually, I guess we are just dealing with the unhappy family members because there is no way we are changing our minds about where we are getting married! People so easily forget that this day is about me and my fiancee, not about anyone else.
How are your plans coming along? Did you always know you wanted a destination wedding? Are you planning a honeymoon after the wedding?
