I'm so sorry to hear that Michelle. It just is unfortunate. No matter how much notice you gave, whether it be 1 year or 2 years, people have to continue with their lives and some people get pregnant. So they have very valid excuses ;) I couldn't imagine not having my mother and sister with me, so I completely understand your dilemma. Just think about it and you'll make the right decision. Is there any possible way you and your FI could help pay for your mother's trip?

        Thank's Shannon. I understand about the pregnancies I guess I am being a bit selfish :)

        We offered her! But she is so stubborn and said no, in a way I think she is afraid to go because she has never been on a plane!! crazy I know!

          I've been reading through the posts (@ page 119 lol) for the last few days and i don't really see any answers regarding the photobooth. 

           

           

           

          Silver $649 Includes 3 hours of service, photobooth attendee, 100  4x6 prints, party props, DVD of all photos and videos  professionally edited, set-up and break-down.   Gold $799 Includes 4 hours of service, photobooth attendee, 215  4x6 prints, party props, DVD of all photos and videos  professionally edited, set-up and break-down.   Has anyone had the photobooth at their wedding??

              Kristen,

               

              I am having the same issue because my entire dress is covered in swarovski crystals.  But, I went into Charming Charlie (its a jewelry store) and found a beautiful "just sparkly enough" choker type necklace.  At first, i was very against that style, but it is up high enough that it looks perfect without being too much.  I love your dress, shoes and sash.  Earrings I would do something simple with pearls probably.  I can't wait to see pictures!!!

                  Our wedding is November 1st and in the past month my sister (who is also my maid of honor) told me she is pregnant and will be over 6 months at the time of the wedding meaning she cannot travel. My FI cousin's (who is his best man) wife is pregnant and will be due a week after the wedding so they cannot go. My mother told me she cannot go due to finances and also my aunt will not be able to go due to being on chemo. I have lost my excitement for the wedding due to all of the cancellations and I cannot imagine having my wedding with the above people not there. I booked through Teresa from Vacations for less. I blocked 10 rooms for $1000. only 3 people put deposits down so far. Does anyone know IF we were to cancel how would we do so and would the guests who booked lose their money? I would feel horrible if they did which is why I don't know what to do. I also paid in full for the photographers room since we are flying him here. My fiance did say if we canceled that we would still go to Secrets Maroma for our honeymoon and maybe we could use the $1000 that we already put down for the room block. I don't know what to do :(

                  Hi Michelle,

                   

                  I too get married on the 1st of November and if it is any consolation I am one of 6 and I only have 1 brother coming, my sister (my only sister) is not coming either due to finances! i was totally gutted but always new that quite possibly loved ones would not be able to attend for one reason or another.

                   

                  Are you sure your sister can not fly my best friend has just come back from Canada flying from Birmingham and she is due her baby in 4-5 weeks?

                   

                  My only concern for you is your mom, i too would be very upset if my mom or dad was not there and that was the only reason we decided we would ever cancel if our parents couldnt be there...just a thought maybe the ones that are dropping out could help your mom out?

                   

                  Our best man told us last night that he doesnt think he can get the funds together for 29th June which is when the balance is due, which we are also upset about so i have had to email my wedding co-ordianator today to ask for extra time, I hope they can because I do think that them requiring the full payment 17 weeks prior is abit much i always thought it was 10 weeks before, but hey ho it is what it is.

                   

                  If our best man can not come then we have decided that our 7 year old son will step up to the mark and be his daddy's best man :-)

                   

                  wwe have lots of family and friends that are unable to attend so we will be having a reception on our return so at least I can wear my dress all over again :-)

                   

                  I truly hope you can sort things out and you can still have your special day on the 1st November :-)

                   

                  xxxx
