If you decide on a destination wedding, how do you know that all your family and friends are happy with your decision? Well, the simple answer is you can't. Pretty much every wedding ever planned has some kind of upset with family members or close friends getting distressed about the decisions made by the bride and groom. As Dr. Phil says "don't give others too much power". Seems to me that the best way forward is to try to please the majority whilst working towards the wedding of your dreams.
Unless there is a good reason to change your plans, such a sickness of a parent, if a wedding abroad is what you really want then stick to your guns. A good compromise is to have your wedding abroad and then have a big party back home for everybody who could not be there on your big day. I remember receiving a postcard from a friend saying "we tied the knot at Lake Louise" and when they returned to UK they invited everyone to a huge party and showed us the wedding video during the course of the evening. The bride wore her gown again, and a great time was had by all.
Although you won't have all of your loved ones around you on your wedding day, instead:
1) you will have guaranteed good weather (depending on the season of course)
2) get better value for money
3) less stress in the run up to the big day as your day is in the hands of an expert planner
4) greater control of your guest list (you won't be obliged to invited cousin Herbert who you don't like!)
5) smaller guest list means big savings
6) combining your wedding with your honeymoon can save you time and money
