    People are crazy!!
    All of my side,friends and family,is coming NO EXCUSES. It's a small close gruop. Abit of bitching because of the expense but they booked.
    My FI side however,different story. His best man has no spoken to him for 3 months(guess he's not coming). Not sure why guess he's not man enough to tell us that he doesn't want to come because he is bitter about love.He got dumped 3 times by the same girl. He said he can't afford it but we know that's crap, he got a new job and told us his salary........he can afford it more than we can.
    Another GM just keeps saying when I sell my house I can book.....he sold his house 2 months ago,no booking. And the other friends that said "i'll be there for sure" just quit calling....
    I thought men didn't pull this crap
    Oh well we know the peeps there truly love and care about us!! Let's say F*#$ Y!# to all the others and have a BLAST!!

      I agree with all of you... The worst is when they RSVP and then have not booked anything. I am gettig married in May and really need a head count lol... I just wish they could say "hey I cant afford it sorry". I rather that then people RSVP and then say "uhhhh I'll know if im going like in MARCH""" ... EHHH this is sooooooooo annoying...LOL sorry guys i'm just venting :).... Well Good Luck with all of you... I am about to start the calls like hey are you going or not... I'll be much nicer about it but you guys get the point.....

        We told people upfront that we would completely understand if they could not make it to the wedding...it's expensive, travel, passport, blah, blah, blah...it's ok. The only excuse we have really heard is the economy...oh and my dad's initial reaction..."I'm not going!" which he is now booked to go, ha : )
        Our invites are going out next week so we will see how the RSVPs go but we are planning on a small group of about 15-20 people with us & we are so excited for it. This is more about us, our celebration, and if I don't hear from people by our RSVP date we are considering them not available to join us.

          Does it really matter if someone tells you they can't afford it? I think when you chose a DW... you have to accept that there will be a lot of people that just can't go... and that's okay!! Because it's the people that DO go that are going to make your wedding! There are quite a few people that will probably be last minute attendees... and that's okay too. Your wedding will be beautiful...and you will be surrounded by those that care about you.

            I know what you mean, what bugs me the most is people will say they will come when you know they won't. Just be up front I'm not mad that you can't come!

              I sent out only a small amount of invites to close friends and family. Only 10% of people have rsvp'd - our booking deadline is this Friday ! Oh well, you snooze, you lose !!

                My lovely FI propsed on Christmas Eve and we decided to give us enough planning time to have our DW in October 2011, plenty of time for people right? I'm still gathering all of the information and pricing, but Saturday my brother (my only brother) IM's me to tell me he can't commit to my wedding, a wedding that's 22 months away... I was hurt to say the least, but at the end of the day my FI family is all very supportive and they are planning on showing up so if my brother doesn't come, it's his loss.....

                    indy,

                    I know it was heartbreaking for me, both my parents are alcoholics and although I'm the youngest in the family I've been the one to hold my family together, as sad as it is I am thankful because it makes me a stronger person and thats all I can ask for. My FI is an AMAZING person who came into my life and has been there for me and at the end of the day I'm so thankful to have him by my side =)

                      Just understand it ur wedding day no matter what. We had the early unboarders that never came thru. Two of my FI guys said yes and now just saying they can't come. My MOH told me she couldn't come two weeks ago. Look at my wedding date! In the end it is not about who is there or not there, it is about you two coming together to spend your life together...I figure as long as that happens then rest is lagniappe (extra).
