Never mind that the STD's had been mailed and clearly indicated Puerto Rico! Now FI's family will need to rush back to NY. My mom wants me to just elope and keeps mentioning how my brothers cannot afford to go and how much it will cost blah blah blah. Well if my brothers would get jobs and stop spending their money on alcohol perhaps they could swing it! Wedding planning sucks!

We had 24 people attend our wedding in Las Caletas, Mexico on May 24th, 2009!
We all stayed at The Marriott in P.V., and Honeymooned at The Royal Plantation in Ochos Rios, Jamaica!

Anyway, I say, if you guys want to get married in PR, do it. If people don't want to come or whatever, so what, their loss. You'll have an awesome time with the people who do come. I know it's hard to think this way, especially when it's possibly your own mother and brothers who may not come, but they're all grown-ups and should understand the concept of priorities.
I also hate when people use money as the excuse. Ok, in some instances, it really is the issue, but I think more often than not people could swing the costs if they just actually saved the money and stopped spedning it on frivilous stuff. It is their choice how to spend their money, but they shouldn't lay a guilt trip on you if they are spending their money unwisely instead of saving for the wedding trip.
Personally, ever since my own DW, I'm all about destination weddings. I am bummed none of my friends who are engaged are planning DW's because I'd totally be motivated to save up and attend. I love any opportunity I can get to travel!!
