    don't stress at all - a lot of people wait until closer to the date because the prices come down!
    my wedding is in a month and my parents just booked last week (and they're the most supportive people in the world and wouldn't miss our wedding for anything!)

      I know it's not what you want to hear, but you should consider giving them some slack. You have about 8 months left. My own FATHER just booked his flights about a month ago. I am still not sure if he has a hotel yet. I'm sure that they will make it.

        Everyone has missed my main concern!!!!!!
        They have already said that they will not be attending!!! I know for a fact that we have some guest that have already told us they are coming, just waiting to get a better deal...that's totally cool with us...It's just the idea that all 4 of his sisters and 1 brother have already confirmed that they will NOT be attending! I am fine with it, just feel bad for my FI!!!!

            I didn't read everyone's response but I would recommend that you don't let it bother you. Like some of the other brides, I still have family that hasn't booked. Honestly I expect reservations up till the week of. I gave plenty of time to book but people are such procrastinators.

            Also, someone had to mention to me that my wedding wasn't as important to some others... go figure! As if? Nevertheless, these people have now booked but it was at the last minute. I would suggest reminder emails.

            For the bride who's wedding is in 08... you've got a bit of time so don't expect much till after the Summer.

            P.S. For the record my parents haven't booked yet!

              wow, sorry did not read the whole thread.

              You really can't do anything about who will or will not come. I mean, you can talk to them, urge them, whatever. But ultimately people are going to make a decision that works best for them.

              So rather than stressing out over it, just try to enjoy your time. You have several months. Maybe they will change their mind? Maybe if there is some sort of rift your Fi and his siblings can work it out. But I can guarantee that your getting all worked up is not going to help anyone in this situation so my advice is to just let things be and focus on the positive. You're getting married to a person that you love and in an awesome location that you're going to totally enjoy. Planning is super stressful, but the more that you can let it go, and just roll with the punches (and we've all been there...) the more that you will enjoy this time and everyone will enjoy you!

              good luck!

                Ok, I want to thank everyone for being so supportive! You guys are the best! And you all are soooooooo right! I have stressed about this long enough, and I'm so sick of thinking about all of this negative crap! We have an incredible wedding party attending at this point, and I could care less if anyone else ended up going! Now, onto the fun stuff! I have about 7 months to finish my planning for all of the "fun" stuff that I love to do! so thanks to you all! Woooooo hooooooo!
