    Them: Your wedding is too expensive for me to get to! You (in a sweet voice): I'm so sorry that you won't get to join us for our special day. We would love to have you, but understand that only the closest family and friends will be making the effort to come. We'll miss you!

    That was nice...

      Oh, my daughter is getting married in Mexico and I have heard everything from how expensive it's going to be to how dangerous Mexico is....whatever....stay home then!

      Honestly, I'm not even nice about it anymore!

          Lmao!! That's a good rant. I've gotten it from family & only one friend so far. My sister has been trying to talk me out of Cabo since we announced a DW... And it was her stinkin idea to do a DW!! I guess she just didn't expect me to choose Cabo. In all reality tho, it's only going to cost ppl around $2,000 per couple to spend 4 days there at an all inclusive freaking resort. For most of our guests, it's going to be a once in a lifetime trip.

            I've resigned myself to the idea that not everyone will make it. While it makes me sad, I won't dwell or ruin my time w the people who do come.

                Totally agree with your attitude. I have been going through the same. How selfish we are, too expensive, too far, I don't fly, etc etc. I'm at the point now just don't give a rat' s ass who comes and who stays home. I sent std' s will send out invitations if you can't come then don't keep all personal opinions to yourself. Your right you get a beautiful vacation outta the deal too. In regards to money you can put a down payment nd pay on the rest. We have all given guests atleast a minimum of a yrs notice.

                  I'm actually kind of hoping that everyone can't come so that we stay on budget (bad brownsugarbride, I know!).  We'll have an at-home reception (not too expensive) for people that we don't invite/can't come to the wedding, but I am not losing a minute of sleep worrying about people that can't come.  And although I have used this gif before in this thread, it never goes out of style when people start bothering you about the wedding.
