Now, if all of those relatives really can't go, they can choose the "no" option of the RSVP. Then they can throw the invite out if it upsets that that bad. Sheesh. Tell them you will send them pictures!
I don't get how people can think that somehow it's up to you to accomodate them on your wedding day!? Sheesh.

So, long story short: Invite who you think you would want there, not who your parents or anyone else thinks will come. You will be surprised (or at least I have been) at how many people initially say they will come and don't follow through, and how some that you never would imagine would make the effort are coming. Go figure...

On the same note, my FI and I had a talk on Saturday night, one of his best friends, who he was going to ask to be one of his GM's, girlfriend told my FI that they can't come to the wedding due to the cost. He was so upset and I am so mad at this. Why does she have to make that decision. If she were a good person who cared about her BF, she would tell him that he should go without her b/c they can't both afford to go. Am I wrong on this one? He is so upset b/c this friend can not come. Here I am, with a friend who is a full time student and her husband who still does not have a work visa in our country and she is coming no matter what and my sister who's husband just passed away will have a 2 year old and a new baby and be on mat leave (making next to no money) is coming. And this guy who has a great job, can't come b/c they can't both afford to go. I don't know what to tell my FI to ease his mind. I feel so bad for him.

the ladies have given you awesome advice. do not let others guilt and issues become YOUR problem. when we first decided on a DW we thought we were lucky if 10 people came because my mom just guilt tripped the heck out of me.
well we had almost 60 and they ALL had a blast and my mom is so pro-DW now! she is the hypocrite

It feels like our burden but it shouldn't be. Your wedding, your location, your happiness. Good people will respect that and come if they can. Good people who can't come will rsvp with a no and wish you well. Don't worry about anyone else
