Not a bride, and we did our not-fancy wedding while leaving out a bunch of family, so I get that you want to do a vow renewal ... I just don't understand why you can't _not_ invite them. Invite the people who will make your day joyful, avoid the people that won't.

If you absolutely have to have them there for a ceremony, do one in your home town, then travel somewhere without them and do another ceremony for you and the people you want. And don't tell them about the second one!

I understand where you are coming from, and that type of thing has been discussed many times. But I'm trying to avoid all lies and deceit. What's going to happen when they see a framed picture of my DH and I on the ship in wedding clothes hanging in our house? I don't want to have to pull down pictures for the rest of our lives to avoid an awkward situation.

Oh dear sister, you have my deepest sympathies!

Families are the greatest blessings and the ABSOLUTE greatest curse at the same time. You are responsible for neither their happiness, nor their prejudices. You cannot change them, just don't let them change you by making you bitter. If people want to be small minded and petty, any target will do.

Your plan for a three day cruise with ceremony, then moving on without them sounds truly inspired. Also, do you realize if you book a concierge level suite, there is a gate that non conc level passengers cannot get through?

I hope your plans work out. Let us know, ok?

I'm a activity person, so I'm more than happy to let them know where I will be and they can join if they want but they are more the type to set up camp at the bar. And that's just fine by me....
Then Hang out at WDW for a day or two,
THEN head on a 7 night fantasy honeymoon cruise.

And yes, this is cheaper than a WDW ceremony, a DCL ceremony, WDW tickets and hotel, and a cruise.

With doing a 3 night with them, if they want to be excessively nasty then it only ruins 3 days, not a week.
Sounds like a plan. Best wishes!

Not to get into details, but I was worried about my family and his family also, we did the three day cruise for the wedding and it worked out fine.

Not to say we didn't have tense moments, but our time all together was limited so it really worked out well. We spent our honeymoon at Disney (but in retrospect wish we would have done another cruise).

Best of luck to you.
