    Thanks for the advice/encouragement ladies! I know the answers are usually simple, but it feels great to have a little back-up from other brides!

        I completely agree. If my mother can't save up the money to go my wedding in 13 months (she had over 15 month's notice) then I guess she can't go. I just wasn't going to plan my wedding around what she will or won't do. I am planning for me and my fiance.

          Mine too isnt coming. I am not bothered by it. We didnt really give anyone more than 8 months notice and its what we want. We are having a reception when we come home so people that cant come to the wedding can come to that.

              I'm suprised at how many of our mom's aren't coming or can't save etc. My mom told me she couldn't afford it and then when I came back at her offering to pay for her and my brother to come out, she says "I'm afraid to fly".... Kinda sounds like a dis to me.

              It sucks but I'm not going to let it stop me from having the time of my life, if she WANTED to come, she'd come.

              Good luck to the rest of you ladies, at lease we know we're not alone in this issue.

                This mom conversation makes me feel SO MUCH BETTER! I'm happy to know I am not alone in this issue! It's an tough emotional situation.

                    Also wanted to share re. Mom's/family. It's not Mom in my case but my sister and my fiance's sister. my sister says she can't afford this either even tho I told them about this plan last year! my fiance's sister says that Mexico is too dangerous of a place to go because of the cartels and all the rapes that go on there. If you can believe it she cited a website w/ a story about some college girls that got raped back in 2007.

                      My mom was the same way. She said she couldn't afford it. Luckily we came up with a plan to help her out. Since my FI and I moved to China last October we had to find a place for our 9 year old black lab. My mom agreed to watch her for the 2 years we will be here. We were already paying her $200/month for food, supplies and misc stuff. So we told her we will pay for her way if we knock the price down to $75/month for the next year. She happily took that plan and now she is coming.

                      I hope your mothers have a change of ♥♥♥♥!!!

                      Happy planning 2010 brides!!! :-)
