Seriously I only have my Mom, sister and my MoH coming. FI only has immediate family coming and no friends. Im past the angry, sad stage and moved on to the "Im partying in Jamaica with my new husband for 2 weeks and dont care who's coming with me" stage.

Within a few months, most of the immediate family had come around, but FI's brother's wife and kid aren't coming and FI's grandmother backed out a few months ago. My 2 sisters were gung-ho from Day 1. My mom got excited soon too. My dad literally just booked yesterday and the wedding is in 13 days...
I went through the same thing in the fall: thinking that we sucked, it made me feel like a big fat loser that no one would care enough to come to our wedding. Starting in the summer, about 6 months before FI had a pair of friends book their family in on a whim. Then about one month ago (so like 6 weeks befoer our wedding), FI organized 3 of my friends to come down by basically bribing them... (he's helping pay for one couple). Now in the past 3 weeks, we have 3 more potentials. We're up to about 18.
My point is, people are weird and will annoy you, disappoint you, and surprise you. Once you get past the stage of being really depressed that no one is coming but your immediate family, maybe more people will book. If they don't, you'll still have a fabulous time. Keep your eyes on the prize!!!

Question for you ladies:
Any of you having a party back home when you return? We keep going back and forth on it. If it's worth it. We know not a lot of people will be able to go to Mexico, so we figure why not do it? That way people won't feel left out and also would be nice to celebrate w/ friends/family that weren't able to make it.
What do you guys think?

We are having a Wedding Reception and Dance back home 2 weeks after come back from Mexico. We are inviting EVERYONE, all the extended family, highschool friends, college friends, work friends, etc..... That way everyone feels included. Our plan is to have a slideshow of our wedding in Mexico so its like they were there, i'll wear my dress again, he'll wear his suit ...the whole deal!! I think it will be fun to have 2 weddings!!!
