I am in the very beginning stages of planning my destination wedding and looking for locations, primarily in Dominican Republic or Costa Rica. One problem I have ran in to is with a teenager niece and nephew. I have been leaning towards all-inclusive resorts just to be able to get more bang for your buck, but the two I have really liked so far are adults only!
The wedding packages are perfect for me, at a great price point, beautiful properites and have a variety of rooms for those attending, at different price points. But I was wondering if it was in bad taste to pick a resort where my niece and nephew wouldn't be able to attend. I am kind of close to both but close enough to their parents (my brother and sis-n-law) to care if they get mad. They are the type of people to hold grudges! How do you broach the subject of seeing if they would be able to leave their kids at home? I was thinking they wouldn't go to a destination wedding in the first place but brought it up to my mom and she seemed to think they would be going. Are kids typical at destination weddings?
I guess I could always go back to the drawing board and find other resorts that are more kid-friendly, but would that be compromising too much? Any suggestions on all-inclusive resorts that would be able to accomodate everyone?
