We sent our STD's to give guests one year notice. I spent time creating a website, finding a TA and sending travel info to make it easier for them. Well, as of today 9 out of 10 of our rooms are filled. I'm so glad we didn't block anymore. I have quite a few people who said they are coming but haven't put down their deposit for the room( was due Dec 1)Some people are have purchased their air tickets, others just the room and some nothing at all. We're five months out and the rates are as good as they'll get. I guess they will book when they're ready. I just hope no one complains when the prices increase.

I can relate. But I decided not to worry about any more. Since we decided to have a destination wedding, I have been so stressed with the drama.
"Why are you having a destination wedding?" "No one will be able to attend." This is not fair to us." "This is way too expensive." And the comments go on!
So I decided to plan the wedding (order favors) based on the people that confirmed verbally. Which is about 30 people plus my brothers & their families.
These people took the time to call/write to share my joy. I feel that if any of those people can not make the wedding, it would be sincerely a financial or emergency issue.
Therefore my plans are to share the favors with them present or absence!

Just know that you can't please 100% of the people, 100% of the time!

But we attended a destination wedding last April, wasn't planning on going at first, but then my fianc© and I decided to go on vacation kind of last minute and just happened to be able get the same resort at the same time as my friends. We went earlier, and left earlier, but we did get a really great deal. We weren't in the same part of the resort as the wedding guests, but the bride and groom were able to include us in all the wedding festivities and were really happy we were there.
Maybe my situation was different, because we weren't even planning to go, it was just all last minute and got lucky, but they were happy we were there, and we were happy to be there for them as well.

I really cannot have crashers at a DW, I mean how do you even do that? On top of that FI Best friend may not be able to make it!! He's going to be crushed if this is the case. I am crossing my fingers hoping that it won't be the case.

Like everyone else said, we do have to plan a wedding here! Maybe email updates letting your guests know that the resort needs to finalize your count (true or untrue) by a certain date would help put the fire under them to commit or decline!
best of luck to all!
