FI and I are having a destination wedding in Jamaica because it is something we wanted to do. It saved us money by cutting a lot of the guest list (we're not going into debt for this), planning is WAY easier and less stressful and we get to start our honeymoon right away. However, over the course of a year we've had a few people second guess our decision because it is inconvenient...for them. "Why couldn't you just do it here?". Answer: <insert reasons mentioned above and give them a little side-eye>.
How many of you destination wedding brides have had to hear the same and what did you say to them?
