    That is definitely giving people plenty of time to respond.  I am only giving people 8 weeks or so to respond.  I'm also pretty sure we'll be booking all of my FI family. My family is already booked and ready to go, his we'll be dragging.  I thought DW were easy peasy too, they aren't and anyone that says "oh, you have it so easy" has NO idea!

     

    my list is fairly short (good thing since I'll be the one reserving everyone's trip anyway) but my fiance has a long list of family members... I haven't even met most of them. I argued for a while about that list but it's his wedding too and he is working a whole lot for our day. We might as well have the people we love there.

      After the day I've had I wish that were me!!!!!!

       

      Please excuse my rant but I've gotta talk to someone.

       

      I got a text from one of my BM early this AM saying she got bad news about her camp she's selling and she needed to talk to me but couldn't because she was crying too much. I wait ALL day for her to call me. Apparently when they did the inspection there's something wrong with the roof and in order to sell it she needs to fix it and it's going to deplete her savings.  Although I feel bad for her it's their summer camp not your permanent home and apparently she just found out today but it's also two days before the BM dress order goes through. I have no idea if she's going to come at all but regardless she's not a BM anymore.

       

      I had two dresses, 3 one style and 3 in another so I need to re-do the order because I want them to come out every other, not a problem but I also wanted an even number of BM (even in number and even to my FI). 

       

      On top of that I was talking to my Mom today and she let it slip that my sister is planning to come alone. Not the end of the world except for the fact that I already paid for her and her family entire stay at the resort. My sister and BIL have plenty of money but she was acting like this would be a financial burden so I paid for them to help and because I love them and her. Now she's coming alone??? I paid for 2 adults and 2 kids!!!!!! My mom said she's still not sure though. Um, well make up your mind so I can see if maybe I can get some money back. She didn't really want to bring my niece to Mexico because she'll only be 20 months and she thinks it'd be a pain to travel with her, what if she gets sick, blah blah. She also doesn't trust anyone (but the people that will be at the wedding to watch her). Therefore my BIL will be home with both kids, possibly anyway. I emailed her today to ask and got nothing back.

       

      By the time the day was done I wanted to elope!!!!!!!!!!

        Hey ladies I'm here for some " don't give a shit what anyone thinks and says pep talk". Lol I'm really kinda down tonight. We just came back from my FI sisters house where some of his family were gathered . For shits and giggles I informally handed his sister and dad the STD I just got done. And so it begins...this is what I got Odd look from his sister and 17 yr old niece . " Halloween ? Your wedding is gonna be on Halloween ? Really? " arched eye brows! From niece " great guess I can't come ill just have started college" From sister and niece - it's a Friday? From his father- why can't you just do it in Miami ? If its the money ill give you money. Are you inviting so and so and so and so and sound so? " you know we are. Tight family why would you do it in YOUR country? From his father - well at least we can book your uncles time share and we can all stay there and just go to your wedding. I was getting so pissed and its only the first STD Ohhhh and I said to his sister. Please it's not like anyone actually considers Halloween a pagan holiday. To which she raised her hand as in to say " I do" Now add to that None of my so called best friends have even called me to ask about the wedding since I told them I was engaged over a month ago. My fathers " how much is this shindig gonna cost comment" My moms " your not wearing white re you?" Comment And the fact that I'd rather elope As it is , I feel totally deflated. This is supposed to be a happy time in my life and instead I just wanna cry. Mainly because I always see in the movies and on tv all these people with tons of support. Let me clarify that everyone Is happy for us and want us to get married. I just feel super lonely in the process.

        From this day forward, whenever you get foolish comments such as this, please refer to the wise words here: http://awesomelyluvv.../01/GirlBYE.gif

            I'm sure I could get someone but don't want to ask anyone and have them feel like the 2nd string plus the BM dress order has to go out by 7/31, everyone else has ordered theirs and put their deposit down so I don't want to hold it up.

                    Oh good - I have a short RSVP time frame too - Glad I'm not the only one!!  I figure most everyone will be booked before then anyways but I thought I might sound crazy hehe

                      Oh Bummer about your BM - that is too bad!

                       

                      Wow - about your sister. . .   I'd be upset if she made a decision like that knowing you already paid and she didn't bother to tell you!??!!

                       

                      I dont really know what to say that might be helpful - sometimes you just have to be upset for a minute to really get over something!

                       

                      Take a deep breath and a BIG gulp!   In the end you will have a AWESOME wedding and it will be exactly the way it was meant to be
