The most important ones will be there for you and your FI and that's all that matters. Sorry you are going through this. This is my biggest fear!
I know with our wedding a deposit is going to be due 6 months prior to the wedding with the remaining amount due 2 months the big day.
Everything will turn out for you!!!! Don't stress about the small stuff. Either way it's your day and if your FI shows up that's all that really matters
Our timeframe is the same for getting all the money in but I am SO worried about having this problem. I have friends who have already asked to book (before we pushed our date back to 2012 it was April 2011), and then others that told us they would wait until way closer to the wedding. Until people do this firsthand, they can NEVER appreciate the stress we go through and they just aren't curteous. Arghhh!!
