Disagreeing on Wedding Destination

Group Therapy: My Fiancé Refuses to Marry Abroad, Like I've Always Dreamed

This question is from a Group Therapy post in our TrèsSugar Community. Add your advice in the comments!

Me and my boyfriend have decided to get married and have started thinking about our wedding. It has always been my dream to get married abroad — in Europe, however he objects to the idea of marrying abroad.

He himself likes the idea, however, he says that some of his relatives would refuse to pay to go abroad etc., and it would just never work. I know it sounds so silly, but I feel so devastated. I've always planned how my wedding day would be and have always dreamed of it being abroad, in my dream country, in the perfect location.

I understand that it's asking a lot of people, but surely I'm allowed to be selfish for one big day of my life?! I just feel so upset over this and I don't know if I'm overreacting or if I have a right to feel like this? It seems that I spend all my life trying to make my family and friends happy, why can't they do the same for me on my wedding day. My family is more than happy to go abroad, it's just his. Please share your views with me on this, I feel so lost!
