I'm getting married next year and we decided to get married on his parents 30 acre property in Texas even though we live in VA and so does most of my family. His Dad is recovering from cancer and also has severe heart disease, as a result he can't travel. Having the wedding there will also save us a ton of money. But my parents are complaining about having to travel even though we have offered to pay for their flight expenses. My bridesmaids aren't complaining, why are my parents being such pains about it? I'm thinking they're going to say they won't come and blame it on missing work, which I know they could easily get time off from, or some other crap. Hell they might even just flat out tell me they don't want to come out there period. I feel like this is our day and we should be able to plan what we want without other people making it about them, but what can I do to make it more agreeable for everyone?
