I am recently engaged, and have not even had a chance to give people details other than my fiance and I have always wanted a destination wedding. It really is both our dream to get married on a beach somewhere outside the US... but also one of my fears. I fear that I will fly out and on my wedding day, realize that not many people came because it was just too much of a hassle for people.
I know it's asking a lot of people and I don't want my wedding to be an imposition, but at the same time... a wedding is supposed to be about the couple and not the guests. Surely I want our friends and family to feel appreciated and wanted at our celebration... and we will help financially where we can, but I'm getting a lot of negative feedback from a few people. I'm by no means a bridezilla, but these comments are hurtful.
Example from my Sister: "You should have the wedding in the states, so my husband won't be upset at having to pay for FOUR plane tickets, passports... and he needs somewhere he can fish."
I know it's a lot of money in plane tickets, but they seem to have no problem taking a family vacation to Kauai later this year.
Bottom line is, are my fiance and I rude for wanting a destination wedding considering the financial burden it might be for some people? I'm barely engaged and already not a happy bride to be.

its your wedding, some people have a destination wedding SPECIFICALLY to try and discourage guests from attending. anyways this is your first time and probably will be your last, make it count.1
