I never realized planning a destination wedding would take so much out of you emotionally. From the melt downs that people have when you tell them where you're having it (guilt), to trying to decide who to invite (and who you have to leave behind - guilt), then having to hear that people can't make it (at the very last moment non the less). It's not a nice feeling. For one, why wouldn't people make the necessary sacrifices to make such an important day when you know you'd do the same for them? Is this selfish of me to say? Some I can understand not being able to make it, others I just cannot. And it hurts. It hurts because I know if they tried they could have.
You see, B and I have always known we wanted to get married in Maui. Even before we were engaged. This is our dream wedding. We've dreamed about it for years. And now it's finally going to happen. I just wish people could be as excited as we are about it instead of making excuses.
We have a great group coming. And I'm so grateful for the friends and family who are doing whatever it takes to make it a special day for us. Even when I know they are having a tough time. They mean the world to us and we will be forever grateful.
It's been that kind of a day.
