wow, I can't even imagine inviting that many people!
about the close friends thing though, I have one best friend who I have known since early childhood, and when I told her about wanting a destination wedding her immediate response was "well, I don't know if I can make that..." to which I responded You're Coming Or Else (yes, caps included, I brought out the inner bridezilla in me lol). It helped though that I backed up my statement with a pledge to pay whatever she can't afford. And even though i KNOW she really is tight on money and that's the only reason for her hesitation, it did still hurt a little that that was her first reaction. sigh.
I guess that's the price we all have to pay for being destination brides.

We think alike! Keep me posted on the final number!
