So, we sent out invitations to our Nov. 18, 2011 wedding more than a month ago. The reply period expired like two weeks ago and we have received only a small portion back. Mostly no's from people who had said they would come.
It's just so frustrating! I mean I know with a destination wedding you can't expect everyone to go. But oyu do expect some people.
We have only three yesses back, we know there are more coming, but we really thought we would have 25-30 people coming.
I can't even get my own sister, my only sibling, to reply ... that's a whole other story in itself though.
And what makes it worse is that some people are mad we are doing this. It's like, it's our wedding and this is how we have dreamed it. Let us do what we want.
Sorry, just had to get that out. I am just so mad right now.
FI is at the point where he is saying let's just scrap the whole thing and elope ... but that's not what I want. Yes i wanted a small wedding on the beach, yes that is what we will have, I just thought certain people would be there to share in the celebration.
