I feel like no one is coming to the wedding...

Also, when I felt the same way & was complaining to my mother, she made me realize that the people that were coming, were the people who I should be thankful for. They made the sacrifice & that should show me how much they cared. I was spending so much time worrying about those that were'nt coming, that I forgot how special those that did come were!
So, again, you'll be fine. Don't worry about those who can't come, backed out, whatever. Think about all the wonderful memories you'll have of your wedding day, spent with friends & family who matter the most. And a group of 20 is much more intimate & manageable than a group of 40-50! I don't know what I would've done if I had to keep up with & entertain 50 guests instead of 30.

Also, I think something that you have to realize is that many of your guests who can't make it aren't doing so because they don't love you, it's usually because they simply can't. Whether it's money, or work or something else in their life, you can't expect them to drop their priorities (or fears!)!
Enjoy your day with your new husband, that's all it's about!

My FI's family is all overseas (he is from Australia) so most of them (or maybe all of them) won't be able to come.
Sometimes I am totally happy with the idea of a small intimate wedding but it does bother me sometimes that certain people won't be able to attend!
Keep your chin up - it will be a special day no matter what and like everyone else has said, it's you and your FI's day!!

And yes, unfortunately we all go through this. You just never can tell with these types of things... Like, we have 23 RSVPs but only about 10 or so people have actually booked either their airfare or hotel so there's no telling...

We had 24 people attend our wedding in Las Caletas, Mexico on May 24th, 2009!
We all stayed at The Marriott in P.V., and Honeymooned at The Royal Plantation in Ochos Rios, Jamaica!

A lot of girls said it already ...less people = less work = you get to have more fun! Fun is what you should have on your wedding day. It is a life event that you will want to be able to savor every minute of!
