I am torn between thinking that it is always more fun to travel with someone, but this is our wedding.. and if he is just bringing some random along (or even a buddy????), then am I right in thinking I don't really want them at my wedding?? They can laze by the pool all they want, but....!!
I know this is not specifically about Azul but you ladies have been so helpful with everything else, I'd love your thoughts!!
I would have to agree with MMK. Even though you may not have planned for this extra guest, your guest is travelling a very long way to attend your special day. And your wedding is one day...not the whole week. So I can understand your FI's friend bringing along someone to enjoy the rest of the vacation with. Plus, perhaps it's a new girlfriend or someone you know....Don't stress to much about it, and just be happy that your FI's friend will be able to attend. (if it makes you feel any better, when I got married I met 9 of my husband's family members for the first time...so for me literally strangers!)
And if you're worried about the added financial strain...don't count on your guests until the final RSVP/payments are in. We had certain people we thought were "for sure coming", which didn't come. And then lots of surprise people who we thought never in a million years...and sure enough they attended. And I know it's always difficult to plan budgets, but unless you are planning a lot of outings, etc. really it's only dinner which averages about $40/person. They are paying for the rest of their trip. (funny enough we had a destination wedding and were counting on about 20 guests....we ended up with 63...3 which joined in the last week! So be prepared for a roller coaster ride, but remember they are all coming to enjoy and attend your special day!)
