Wedding in 5 months, only 5 booked so far!!!???
Posted 12 May 2009 - 06:04 PM
So far, the only ones who have booked and left deposits are both set of parents and my sister/bf. My fiance's side of the family are mostly prominant with well paying jobs, who take several vacations a year. His sister decided if at all, she may come alone without her kids or husband, to save money. This while they roll in from the airport from a vaction and are in the midst of planning another.
My first cousin mentioned that she would like to come, but have since decided that it was more important to bring her 3yr old to Disney for 10 days.
What is everyone waiting for? We were expecting at least 12 more people to definitely go but they avoid the subject. I know times are tough, but geeze.
Anyone else dealing with this?

I think it's great that both sets of parents will be there - that is most important.
If there are any friends or relatives who you really expected to come or really want to be there - I would touch base with them. Let them know that even though it is a DW, there are still booking deadlines, etc that need to be met.
I know how frustrating this is for you, though!!!

changed my location just to make it more affordable for people and how many more have signed up.... NONE!! Not to mention now my FIs folks say they may not come, that's right. WTF!
If I don't get 10 people booked I won't be able to book as individuals until this summer and by then I will probably have an impossible time finding an officiant (I'm a DR bride)
I hope your family clues in. Good luck!

I agree with MarieSam, lots of people book at the last minute and lots of brides on here have experienced that. I am worried about that too when my date gets closer. I have lots of verbal "will gos" but I'm afraid that will change when it comes time to book.
Just remember as it has already been said- be thankful for who goes and remember its about you and your FI. (although I secretly hate when people say that because although I know its true it really hurts that some people I love won't go)

The reason we picked Beaches was with the presumption that there would be about 6 small kids traveling there. It's an all inclusive with a free day care and sesame street camp, waterpark, ect. So when I hear that they can't come, but can go on a Disney trip or a luxury cruise, it really hurts and offends me. We would have never picked a DW if we thought it would be such a financial burden to those close to us.

I really feel your pain. I want ppl booked already so that they won't feel rushed to pay their balances...
