MOH Backing Out!!!

Maybe there's something else going on?? A lot of ppl resent DWs, which is a shame... because the people who ended up going to ours had a friggin' BLAST!!! Maybe remind her that it's not ONLY your wedding, but also a vacation for her and her boyfriend?
I'm really sorry... you must be crushed and so hurt... Could you offer to pay for part? Like perhaps the flight upgrade that would make it a direct flight? And maybe those 2 extra nights?? That would be a great compromise, I think...

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!

You guys raised a REALLY good point, one that I hadn't seen because I was so hurt, and that's that it may just be a money thing and that was uncomfortable for her to say. When I thought about that, I had a lot more symptathy.
FI was great, being the girl that I am, of course it spiralled out of control into "well maybe we should just cancel the whole thing, it's asking too much of people". He calmed me down, made me dinner and breakfast in bed. He's super!
So here's what I did. I called JetBlue, because I saw they are beginning service to St. Lucia. Turns out that there will be direct service THREE times a week from JFK! They haven't finalized the timetable so they don't know which three days that will be, but that's A LOT better than one!
What I proposed was: (a) to pay for one ticket in its entirety (one of her points is that when she said yes, she assumed it would be like St. Thomas, where tickets were like $300 each, so paying for one ticket would make it about $300 each); and ( to pay for nights at the resort to take them from Sunday to whenever the next direct flight from JetBlue was.
I have my fingers crossed, they are proud people. I definately don't want them to feel like charity cases, so I also said that if it still is too much money, that i completely understood, it wouldn't affect our friendship, and that I hoped they could come to Tennessee for our hillbilly AHR.
I'll let you guys know what happens. Thanks again, I feel so loved!

I really hope this works out for you. I'm a HUGE fan of JetBlue!! They have great prices and have LOTS of sales about every 40-60 days. This sounds like a fabulous plan!
Definitely keep us updated on what happens.
PS I am glad you have seen the power of the BDW message board!
