I am currently in your situation regarding wedding guests cancelling due to this circumstance. In all fairness, I can see them being scared to travel, as I am.... but to cause stress amoungst the bride n groom; who should be getting nothing but excitement from their guests on all travelling to a destination to share this intimate ceremony... thats just not right.
My mother in law mentioned to us that we should re-schedule our wedding as well. We have been engaged for 2.5 years, and we have gone through thick n thin to plan a trip for over 40ppl.... there is NO WAY Im backing out now. I have spent alot of time arranging this destination wedding, not to start from scratch. I live in Toronto Canada.... you dont think there is crime, drugs, or mobs here... ??? Then you aint living in the real world. Things are going to happen here, in the States, in Mexico, in Cuba, in Jamacia or the DR..... things happen, and the media blows everything out of the water.......
Like my Fiance said 'think of it as lightening, it will only hit there once! Now its free'sailing.....' haha, I try to think that way.
We have 73 days until our wedding in Feb/2011... Im just hoping that it will be up and running before then.
The funny part is; my entire guest list booked on the Sunset side... the only person really screwed is my Father in Law because his 'current' wife didnt want to be with the Mother's family....... so they booked on the Rieveria side... LOL... sucks to be them!
Lighten up... its your wedding. As long as your groom is by your side, thats all you should care about. He IS your family now..... the only people who will fee regret if your family who chose not to stand with you during your wedding day!
Hope this helps.
