    I am sending positive thoughts your way. I agree with all the other ladies on trying to communicate with your folks, but let me also say that in the end, you and your honey will be married. You are celebrating your love for one another. Please don't let others actions dampen your celebration of love. It will mean as much and be just as special whether they choose to be there or not. It is their choice and you cannot make it for them as much as you would like to. They also have to be the ones to live with whatever flows from their choice.

    Lots of happy thoughts from me and love to you and your FI. Your day will be wonderful and special no matter what!

      Agree with this 100%. Easier said than done I know, but you'll be a Mrs. and this is YOUR day, don't let anything or anyone wreck it. You can't control what others do, but you can control how you react to it! Cheesy I know, but so true!

        My DH's parents said they weren't coming because they didn't have the money. They booked only a few months before we were set to leave and totally surprised us. We then had to hear about how they spent the money they saved to fix their roof on our wedding- total guilt trip.

        But once we got back from the trip, his mom ordered a book full of pictures and ran around showing it off to everyone. Needless to say, I think they enjoyed their time.

        So don't give up hope yet. I know it's so painful to think about your loved ones possibly not putting you and the wedding as a priority, but give them time. They may sit down and really think about what they are missing and come through. Personally, you couldn't put a price on my attending someone I love's wedding or other important event. Life is way to short to create regrets.

                  glad to hear everything worked out...funny i saw this today because we're 3 months out and parents still hadn't booked!! they kept waiting for prices to "drop". finally last i told my mom that the resort prices and flight prices were actually going up and if she wanted to save money, she'd better book asap. i ended up coordinating everything with my TA and just getting her cc and signature. it was a mess, but it's finally done, lol!!!
