Hope that helps, I'd just be honest!

I found after I asked them to be bridesmaids though, that they jumped at the chance and it swayed their decision to come to the wedding!! Once they knew it was important for them to stand up with me, they are making every single effort possible to be there.
I would just talk it out with them

(I also only spent like $35 on the dresses, so I didn't blow my budget) I ended up only having one girl who can not make it, (4 total are coming) the others said they wouldn't miss it! One of my best friends even ended up picking up a second job just so she could go!! I feel bad but it was her choice and I REALLY am glad she is coming!

I could also say if they cant go I can try and sell their dress. If they dont go I still want them to be a part of the AHR. I would have them sit with us even if they didnt make it to St. Thomas.
My only thing is we need to order by Labor Day. I talked to a few of them and they are ok with it but I havent had a chance to talk to others. I want to send out a formal card to them how would you word it? My FI needs to send one out to his guys. Again how do you word something saying I want you in my wedding but I dont know if you will be standing next to us? Again I have explained it to some but I also want something formal and nice for them.
Another this is what if I have 4 bridesmaids show up to STUSVI and my FI only has 2. Do I make it an off center bridal party or do I have 2 bridesmaids sit down and the other 2 up there with me. Has anyone had an odd number of groomsmen and bridesmaid standing up?
