      thank you so much for the helpful hints - after reading all of this - i am not going to upgrade my cake as most people won't eat it anyway. Also I am debating about sending out the save the dates with 'formal invitation to follow' - cuz i could save a lot on the formal invitations if i find out some won't go

                  I'm not married yet BUT I've already learned:

                  Don't pick your bridesmaids and announce them on your wedding website until they've booked (or you're 100% sure they'll make it)...

                  It caused me a lot of hurt/heartache for 2 (out of 3) of my BMs to tell me they don't think they can make it. Anyone else I ask will know they're second choice since I already had posted pics of the wedding party on the website.
                  Glad I didn't buy their dresses for them as I was planning on doing!

                  ..looking back and reflecting, my mistake was that i *told* them they were my bridesmaids, rather than asking if they would do it. hmm.

                    I totally understand..I started with 6 and now Im down to 3...lol One even told me the day the money was due for the dresses...which the store gave prices according to how many dresses we ordered. So we ended up changing the flower girl to a jr. bridesmaid and had to pay for it.
                    Not even rain could ruin my wedding day!

                      Oh Hun that must have been a tough pill to swallow?... I think your advise to other brides is great.
