This has happened a lot with me. But, I'm happy to have the extra guest. I know they are people who really want to go to mexico so I imagine they will be fun to have around. Mostly, it's guests who want to bring a friend or family member with them. It's totally fine with me. They are paying a bunch to fly to mexico, so I feel like they should get to go with whoever they want. It's also fine since I'm not having a private reception, so these extra guests don't cost me anything. Well, I'll make them OOT bags, but that won't be a big expense.
It makes me happy to know that people who would feel no pressure or obligation to come to my wedding want to be there. I know they are probably excited about mexico not the ceremony, but that's still cool.
