in the end, last may (even during the height of swine flu madness), pretty much everyone came, including all the naysayers, the wishy-washy, the drama-causers, the crying poor, and the hypochondriacs! ahhh they are all lucky i love them (or that i have no choice but to love them bc they are family, haha)! they drove me to drink, but that just helped us get our money's worth out of the AI!
since the wedding, there have been many developments in both our families: a diagnosis of terminal illness, pregnancies and babies, heart attacks, hospitalizations, etc. ... all which would have been *real* reasons for not attending our wedding. these sort of things help put things into perspective and remind us what's really important. we feel so blessed to have had our loved ones with us and truly believe fate was on our side.
honestly, in hindsight, i feel pretty silly for all my bitchin and moanin, lol.

I agree with Islandbride. FI and I pretty much already knew who were the ones that were pretty much not going to attend when we even decided to have a DW. But we invited them either way just to look polite and for them to not come back at us stating we never invited them.
Its your day, your money, and your happiness. When ever I hear a complaint I always think to myself, would I be just as happy to have the wedding the way everyone else wants it. And I always think... no, this is what FI and I want and we're stickin to it.
Then I always tell them they're still invited when we renew our vows next year in the backyard.
