oh, I love these threads!! Its your wedding don't feel bad for doing what you want to do!
Like everyone else, we have the people that can't be bothered to come to our wedding even though they've had 10 months to save for it and will blow money on other crap with no problem.
My family booked, no questions asked, I gave them the info, they did it, they never said we can't do it, its too expensive, etc...
FI's family on the other hand he has called over & over again, and has told them he really wants at least one of them to be there, he has no family coming and they all say oh, we don't have the money, he's says, thats crap you have plenty of money, well, we really just don't want to go to mexico. Now my FI LOVES to travel, we're already planning all of the places we want to visit, and it really annoys him that his family is so close minded and will never go anywhere in there life, he just gets so mad.
Anyway, I feel really bad that none of his family is coming, but 6 of his friends have booked, so he's ecstatic about that, I have no friends coming.
We've also had so many people say, well you're going to have a reception when you get back, right? Ummm, no we're not. At first I liked the idea of having an AHR, but now, I'm just so annoyed with the people that aren't coming that should be that I don't want to, should I have a reception just to please everyone else?
Ok, I've gone on way too long, someone tell me to shut up!
