We decided to bump out our wedding to May in hope that spacing out the two trips would allow more of our mutual friends to come to our wedding as well. The problem is, this isn't happening and it's very heartbreaking. I know that not everyone has the timeoff and can afford two trips to Cancun but it still doesn't make it sting any less. I just have to keep telling myself that I wanted a destination wedding and it will be a great time with whomever is able to attend. I've shed many tears over the whole "who is going to attend, who isn't" ordeal...
Yeah, we have friends who are having a wedding close to ours as well. Luckily, they aren't having a DW, but it still stinks. I've been close to tears with this all lately too - it's really hard not to expect people to come. Because, it's like...deep down, you do expect them to come. LOL. Like mothers and best friends and those people at least. It is really heart breaking when people say they won't or can't.
Lately I've been feeling worse and worse about choosing a DW because of how things are going with the economy, and money is getting tight for everyone. It's a really weird feeling because half the time I'm super excited because we already have group contracts and everything...and the other half of the time I feel ridden with guilt about my choice to get married at MP.
Oh well...if I was having a traditional wedding I'd probably just be angst ridden about something else...lol...one way or another!
Joy - thanks for that update! I'll keep waiting and see if they get back to me within the next few days!
