One couple on Mark's said of the family yes they would come, but opted to book a cruise instead during that month. A few others decided to have an early vacation, and said they can't afford 2 trips in one year. A few said they don't have enough money, though I gave about 18 months notice. About 100 a month would have covered one person's around trip and one week at the resort.
But oh, well. My parents, his parents, and his sister are the most important people, and they made sure they wouldn't miss this day for anything.
We are not having an AHR either, though a few comments have been that we should have one since no one is going to the wedding.

We didnt' want to invite anyone, but after they all told us they wanted to come we invited everyone. After all the research, invites and plenty of time....they are telling me 8 months in advance that they can't come. We only have 2 people booked, and it's not family! And my sister (MOH) of all people actually had the nerve to say "It's a waste of money"! She has been officialy Replaced!
My FI has a new saying and it goes like this.....PEOPLE SUCK!
At the end of the day it's you guys that will make the day perfect...and i'm sure it will be a beautiful and just as you imagined it!
Keep your chin up!

Hang in there ... at least you know they would be there if they could, and that they aren't giving some bogus excuse to not attend.

Actually on a side note, my girlfriend who just bought a house, one of the ones I thought wasn't coming due to the another "friend" starting rumors, well she just called me yesterday and said she wouldn't miss our wedding for anything! That made my day

When we decided to do a DW I knew that most people wouldn't come. I for sure new that my Mom wouldn't come. (she has never been on a plane and she doesn't travel, they are homebodies) and honestly I was okay with it. Although I am really close to my Mom we just have that type of relationship. She's like "go do your thing and we'll party when you get back." I'm okay with it for now...but I am a little worried about how I'm ganna feel on my wedding day about not having my Mom there.
When we decided to do this I said that I could care less who is there as long as it's me, my Fi and of course my Daddy. I told FI that I would never ever get married without my Daddy. We only have about 15 people coming. Out of my 6 brothers and 2 sisters only my 1 sister is coming. (granted 1 brother and 1 sister wasn't invited)
Like I said I'm happy as long as me and FI and Daddy are there....everybody else I can live without.
FI Mom and Sister is coming so he's happy...everybody else he could care less.
(I know it sounds mean but we knew this when we decided to do a DW. I didn't even send out STD b/c I thought it was a waste of money. I knew who was coming and who wasn't.)
