Yes the Jellyfish is an off-resort restaurant. That's great that you two talked and came to an agreement. Having the fiance's support is reassuring. I actually lost a friend in this whole wedding process because she was upset about whom I chose as a MOH and even declined to be a bridesmaid and later told my fiancé she isn't even going to the wedding. She has yet to tell me this herself. And she was one of my closest friends. Even though for a while, I felt bad and guilty and was considering getting rid of the bridal party, I also remembered this is MY wedding and not hers. As long as you and the fiancé are happy with your choices, do not let anyone make you feel like you HAVE to do something you don't want to.
Yes, thank you. Very reassuring. I can not believe your friend she Is being very selfish and not supportive at all. I am so sorry you lodt a friend. I never realized how much conflict weddings could cause until I started planning one. It is supposed to be a joyous celebration. Your right don't let it affect YOUR day!

I'm a day late sorry but i hope you feel a lot better today. You remember what you told me This is YOUR wedding!! So all that don't want to be there and support you and your FH can stay home. Imean y ou are paying for the transport to and from the resort to wedding location.

I'm feeling a little bummed today.  While my family has been very supportive of a DW, I got some pushback from a family member about having a destination wedding offsite.  As in: "why are you making everyone pay for an expensive resort if you're having a wedding outside of the resort? Why go to Mexico then?"  Another friend told me it it was going to be a lot of trouble to do an offsite wedding. Don't get me wrong, I DO think a resort wedding is generally a bit cheaper, but you also can get nickeled and dimed there with outside vendor fees, etc and can have less flexibility in having the wedding that you want.  There are tradeoffs either way, no?  I've been trying to find the most cost-effective resort possible, but it made me feel like I was being selfish for wanting to have a more private event and give people a different experience.  The plan is to do a fun rehearsal dinner at the resort and then the wedding offsite.  I've got a great and knowledgeable planner who is helping me pull things together, and I really feel like this is the right way to go for me.  Add to that that I made the mistake of sharing the (very high!) prices of my preferred photographer and I really think I need to keep things to myself for awhile! LOL

That prettying sums it up. People were so negative when we first got married that we forgoed the wedding all together and got married through the glass at city hall. I HAVE REGRETTED IT EVERY DAY SINCE... FOURTEEN YEARS WORTH OF REGRET!!! Now I (oops I mean we) get to do it again and every single detail will be to our desire, no compromise, no buckling, no caving, no allow ourselves to be manipulated. My family is unhappy about the location, not the resort, destination or region but the country!!! They want us to move our wedding from Jamaica to Hawaii the other side of the hemisphere even tried a bribe! As of now they and by default my siblings and grandparents have yet to book and they have had reservation information since September 2012. It's crazy and I refuse to be bullied a second time. I am a travel agent and specialize in DWs and this process has completly changed my perspective of the emotions often clients because the games that families sometime play to gain control or power of a wedding that of often a DW to designed avoid dealing with outside influence. Stay strong ladies!!! Go after your dream wedding!!!
l1 Glad that after all this time you two can have the wedding that you want! Stick to your guns! I am so happy to have these boards to come to you ladies give me courage to have what I want for my wedding. I still have times when I get soft because of all the opposition by many for having a DW but because of you ladies I am gaining a tougher skin.
