It's truly amazing, though, people's willingness to assume that their opinion is of the utmost importance. I actually had someone I work with tell me that going away to get married would look bad. Um... whatever. God bless my parents who were all "anything you want, anywhere you want... just tell us where to be, when to be there, and what to wear." If only everyone was so accomodating...

It's YOUR wedding, it's YOUR day. Do it exactly where you want, in exactly the way you want. These are memories for YOU. If someone wants to gripe about it, cut them off quick and tell them that you'll be sad if they can't make it, but you'll understand.

Happily married since 2008

you are DEF not alone. FI's family is incredibly supportive and excited - AND they're footing the bill! whereas my family is a buncha chumps (at least on my mom's side - only one aunt and her husband and kid are coming, and my mom has 3 sibs). even my dad who is supportive of the wedding being in cabo said to me a few weeks ago, "dont you think youre being a little selfish" when i was complaining that my mom's family wasnt coming and gave me some BS reason. I was like uh, ok dad, its MY wedding, and we're doing what we want. if people wanna join us, thats great. if not, tough luck, we dont wanna hear any bitching!

i know it sucks and it hurts and is stressful, but keep your chin up, the people who really love you will be there on your special day.
