FI is not close at all with his parents and could care less if they were there...so we partially planned a DW knowing they wouldn't come.
I think if we were close to his family and they wanted to be there, but were adamant about not having a DW...we would take that into major consideration and not do it in order to have them attend.
I agree with saric83. I think it would depend on why they are choosing not to come. If there is a medical/financial reason then that is one thing, if they just don't like the beach that is another situation all its own.
My fiances father may not come and we are still continuing with our wedding plans. He would love for his dad to be there but we are not canceling because of this. His dad does not want to attend because my FI's stepfather will be there and they do not get along. We both think it is very childish especially considering the fact that they have been divorced for over 15 years. His stepfather has no problem being around his dad either. For this reason we are letting him make his decison but we are not going to give up on our dream wedding
