    Wow. I love some of the excuses posted here. But we're sending out a bunch of invites (50), and we only expect 20-30 inviduals to come. Some of those invites are just "courtesy" invites to certain family members that we're not that close to, but HAVE to send them an invite to be polite (i.e. nosey/rude aunts & cousins)... I've already gotten confirmations from my closest friends and family, so as long as our parents are there, and a few close friends, we'll be happy.

    It'll be a couple months before we send the STDs, but I'm looking forward to hearing some lame excuses too. People should know that the DW bride and groom don't expect everyone to make it.

      My brother emailed me on Sunday to tell me that he and his family weren't coming to the wedding. They were the only family I had coming - my parents are both deceased - and he was going to 'give me away'. My sister-in-law was going to be a bridesmaid, and my niece was going to be flower girl. Apparently, his back is bothering him, and he doesn't want to fly 7 hours. My sister-in-law is pregnant and due on April 1st - and just decided that she doesn't want to bring a baby overseas. Even though she knew she was pregnant when I bought the dress for her - and she assured me there was no way she wouldn't be there.

      So, I asked a good friend who's going to take her place (an awkward conversation), and FI's dad (along with many of my friends' dads) offered to give me away. Everyone has been gracious and understanding.

      It helped me to put it in perspective. It does seem that I will have family there... my friends and my new family.

        A month and a half to go and I'm still waiting for the remaining 85% to RSVP.....the most easiest, quickest way to RSVP and people out of total lack of courtesy, fail to respond. (LOL I'm still not over this)

          I hear ya!! The worst one so far is my sisters excuse...she told me they could not afford it, a week later they bought a 32 foot boat!! Are you kidding me?!? I figured they would not be able to come because they have 3 small children, that I was ok with! Gotta love the unbelievable excuses. I would have felt better if they all would have told us they could not attend the wedding when we first brought it up.

          Really bugs me when all our friends are all excited and telling us they are saving money...then when it comes down to it...have not heard anything from them and they did not send the RSVP cards back!
