It's actually split, but it appears more family

We have 8 friends booked and 20 family members (1 vendor too:))

If it weren't for us paying for our 8 friends (bridal party) I'm not sure any of our friends would be coming. Even though all of them have always said they'd 'be there.' Yeah. Right.

We have quite a few people who are saying they will come who haven't booked a darn thing yet. Out of the people who did book, we have 24 guests. 9 are family, the other 15 are friends (our family is seriously sucking on this.... SERIOUSLY disappointing sad.gif)

 

Unlike a few of you who have posted, our friends have always said they're coming, so have our family. Our family have backed out A LOT (Reggie's parents are each 1 of 9, ONE of his aunt's is coming... I'm VERY close with my aunts (2)/uncles (3)/cousins (4), and only 1 aunt & 1 uncle are making the trip) but the friends are staying true to their word.

I totally agree Heidi, I guess I just figured that more family would be coming then friends. Right now we have 22 booked and its about 50/50. But I dont see anymore family booking and maybe 10-15 more friends making the trip. Its just sad, but we knew this came with the territory of have the DW.

23 are booked thus far and I think it will end with around 55-60 guests in total. Almost all of my friends are planning to go than family, and FI has almost all his family going and very little friends. How odd!

 

Heidi & KellyandMatt08: I thought I was the only one who had very little family going! I think it's only going to be my parents, brother, and 4 cousins...

We invited tons of his family (his parents are each one of six siblings!) but only a few on my side; my friends more than make up the difference. =) Quite of few of his aunts and uncles can't go, which we expected, so I think that we're actually going to be something like 80% friends:20% family. Maybe a total of about 60 guests?

 

I've always said that our friends ARE our family, and they're totally proving us right. It's what we want, really. All the people we love more than anything in the world, and they're all going to be in one place, with nothing to do other than relax, for days on end. Whee!!!!

    • OMG these are incredible! Seriously blown away by the thoughtful detail you have put into every aspect of your gifts, your guests are going to be amazed! Props to you for adding so many personal touches and putting in so much time to make these gifts amazing!
    • These bags are amazing!! You are so organized and detailed, I am so impressed! I LOVE the Vistaprint stuff you ordered, the logo is so cute, I love your personalization!
    • I love etsy!! It's a great place to find personalized gifts without such a hefty price tag. I was thinking of getting my bridesmaids personalized necklaces with their names on them. I found these ones that are affordable and you can pick the chain length and different fonts, so you can really make them your own and pick what you know each bridesmaid will want. https://www.etsy.com/listing/595334072/personalized-name-necklace-stainless?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=personalized necklace&ref=sc_gallery-3-9&plkey=a8662525c53ec285c1b46b0f308162d0591edff8:595334072
    • Hi everyone, I am so happy that I am getting married to the love of my life. He proposed me and we are getting married within in a couple of months. And I have started preparations for my big day. I am super excited about a lot of things and also worried about many things.I have some inhibitions about my face and skin. Since I am a working woman, I have never got much time for personal care. This is the right time for it now. I need  proper medical grade skin care. Want to improve my skin tone and texture  I read some details about it here, https://www.mcleanclinic.com/nonsurgical-procedures/non-surgical/skin-care/, and found it really helpful. Can anyone of you suggest me some more tips? Like what I can do at home to have a glow on my face?  Thanks in advance.
    • I think you should approach the dentist. That would be the best idea as of now.
