    I'll be sending out STD's about 16 months in advance and still I'm worried no one will come. Yikes!

    You'll see someone is going! 16 months in advance is a lot of time. For some guests is a "problem" because they do not want to organize their vacation so soon, for others not... I am telling you this by experience!

    I couldn't agree more. My wedding is in June, we sent save the dates a year in advance. Nobody booked, i was so discouraged... Our first guest did not book until Janurary 2013 (6 months before the wedding) it is now 1 month till our wedding and we are STILL having folks book. As of now, we will have 65 guest attending and the majority booked only 2-4 months in advanced. I can never understand how people do it, I'm a planner and like to have my vacation book. When I started planning our DW I said "if they aren't booked 2-3 months before, more than likely they aren't coming". Well, I quickly learned that that was false! Some people are just very last minute! It's very frusterating but don't get discouraged so far ahead from your wedding date. People will surprise you.

    62 guest booked, plus Bride and Groom!

      I too was very concerned in regards to who would come to my wedding as well but I quickly realized that if people REALLY cared and wanted to share that once in a lifetime moment with you then its a little sacrafice in a whole lifetime of decisions. Planning my cruise destination wedding (Nassau Bahamas) was a difficult choice but one that I has set my heart on a long time ago and unfortunately when I announced the plans one of my VERY close aunts decided that she would not be attending because she didnt want to spend 7 days on a boat (not a financial issue, as my mother and myself stated that we would pay for her tickets). This was a major bump in the road but in the end it comes down to what YOU GUYS want, because its your special day and although some people may miss out its important that your life is started the way you want it.

       

      And if your family truely loves you they will understant your decision and support you, even if they are unable to attend
