I had a friend walk me down, and i just met him at the ceremony. He just grabbed me when I got off the cart and waited with us girls while the BM's walked down, then us.I wouldn't worry about the logistics at all- no biggie :-)

Ugh I had 2 BM's who got pregnant too. one still came, but she was literally due in 3 weeks the poor thing. The other had her baby while we were gone. I was frustrated at first, but am over it and excited to have my new niece & nephew.... in the end, I guess we can't ask anyone to put their life on hold bc we're going to Mexico...

I keep feeling it is one thing after another. EVEN my FI's mother is not coming AFTER I offered to pay for her room???? I just don't really understand bc everyone sounded so excited until I booked it..... I did not do RSVPs bc I didnt want to have to see the No's all the time. That being said I am trying to concentrate on those who are coming and making their time special. That is all I can do! Sometimes it is hard to be around some of the other girls though bc they act so excited about it but could not make the effort to go.....
Umm Amen. I totally would have eloped had I known how much planning there was for a DW!!! I am sad it's over, but happy at the same time... now we get to think about planning a honeymoon wiht NO stress- just us, wherever we want- no DJ's, no over the top expenses... just a nice relaxing vaca!!!

It makes me wonder why I am bothering to spend the time, energy, and money on this for our family, when our family (aka HIS family) isn't seeming to make this a priority or be interested. I'm so tired of the lame excuses from everyone and wishy washy attitude. We decided to do it this way because our family made it seem so important they were included, but now it's like, what was the point?! I \
Sorry, it's been a rough couple of days. Hopefully my shower Saturday will run smoothly (yeah right) and get me excited again. I can only hope that when May 11th comes, none of this will matter and will all be a distant memory.
Thank god my family lives closer than his! I know what you will all say, and that everyone's been there, but sometimes I just need a good vent session. And I don't like to lay it on my FI too much, since it's his family.
