Amjohnson, I know how much this sux...but unfortunately it is the reality of a destination wedding. We did everything we could to try and ensure certain friends/relatives could attend including letting them know over a year in advance, offering to help pay etc. and we still had some ppl drop out after they had told us they would come. One of these individuals was my FI's best man. Even though we knew that this could happen from the start, it was still hard. You just have to remember that regardless of WHERE you have your wedding, there will always be people who cannot attend. Stay positive....I'm still keeping my fingers crossed we win 649 before the wedding!

We are hoping his family may offer to help out...trying to keep positive thoughts.
