Take a deep breath and realize it is out of your control. I hope the rest of your family gets their passports soon!

My dad, cousin (and his gf) and my aunt waited until 1.5 weeks before the wedding to book their tickets and hotel. Luckily they didn't need passports for St Thomas, but it was still annoying that they waited soooo long to book because I wasn't even sure if they were going to end up going or not. Apparently some people are major procrastinators when it comes to travel plans... which I'll never understand, but I'm the super organized type. Anyway, I've heard so many stories about last minute bookers.
You are right, you need to just stop worrying about them. Focus on you and what you need to get done. They are adults, they can make their own plans and if they don't get all their stuff done on time, they have no one to blame but themselves.

I knew there were certain family members (and I am sure others prob had the same thing) who we knew would not be able to come from the start. And I had to remember that it was important to me & Dean just like it's important to you & your FI to get married in the special place that you chose.

I bet she was just afriad of hurting your feelings and was thinking of an easier way to break the news to you.
I think you should tell everyone that the closer you get to the departure date, the more expensive it is going to be!

If you booked through a TA, they can at least make payments.....except that with a TA you have to be paid 45 days before departure date, so that doesn't give them much time.
I hope they pll through for you...I am sure you really want your family there on your big day. :hug:

I don't know what I would have done if my sis wasn't coming, so I can't imagine how sad you are.
It will all work out in the end. Maybe talk to you sister and schedule a packing party the day before you're supposed to leave or something so she feels more involved?
Good luck. Keep your chin up.
Happily married since 2008
