worried about low attendance for our wedding

Recommended Posts

Hi there,

 

I have the same worries. My fiance and I are just starting to plan our destination wedding for November of this year, and I know a lot of people won't be able to make it because of the short notice. But at the end of the day, as long as he and I are there that is really all that matters. As other people have said, everything else is just a bonus! Have fun planning and try not to stress out.

I like that, i am still 10 months away, but i am already anxious to know who is coming or not coming. I should keep thinking that "people you think you know will be there for sure, won't make it. The people you thought wouldn't come will be the ones who come!" so i won't be disappointed at the end.

You can't let it stress you.  I had two bridesmaids not be able to make it 4-5 months before wedding.  Of course there are still people that are saying "I am coming. I have flight benefits I just have to book my room. " Now I am 3 months out from wedding so I assume they are not going to make it. If they do great but I have prepared myself that they will not make it, and if I do not see people booked within 2 months out they may not get a full welcome bag if I don't have extras.

 

I am having a wedding shower for men and women so most people will attend that prior to wedding.

@@BethandBill I am dealing with that now.  I expected about 60 people for our June 8th wedding but we currently have 18.  It's something you have to expect with a destination wedding.  A few of our fiends changed jobs/are really pregnant/ strapped for cash or simply do not want to go to Mexico in June.  It will be beautiful and the only people that matter are you and your fiancee.

I ended up marrying the love of my life in Freeport, Bahamas and we ended up getting married on the beach. We had met a newlywed couple the night before who just happened to be on the beach as we said our vows. Her hubby took tons of beautiful photos for us and we have ended up with lifelong friends. Several others stopped and took part in our big day, which was amazing. We had our reception a week after returning home and wore our wedding attire. All of our friends and family still got to be part of our day and in a way, we ended up having to big days. No matter who is able to be there for the actual wedding ceremony, it's your day and that makes it the perfect day. Good luck planning.

I am also worried about low attendance... But really I was expecting it... I mean, I of course am hoping for a higher turn out... But I'll be happy just to have the wedding of my dreams with the love of my life!!! Sadly, my sister and her family will not be able to attend, due to the fact that they are on a strict budget with her being a stay at home mom and living on 1 income... :(  I was of course sad about it, but I understand.... Plus I knew the risks of a destination wedding!!  But it was important to us that we have the wedding that WE wanted and not the wedding that would please everyone else...

 

My wedding is still quite a ways away, so people still have time to book... I was just hoping that people were as excited as me and would not be able to wait to book their trip!!! We've had SOOOO many people tell us that they are going to attend, but I'm really trying not to get my hopes up until they put down their deposit!!!

 

Either way I know that my fiancee and I will have a blast and enjoy every minute of our 10 day stay!!! I really can't wait!!!

    • Hello, I am getting married after 2 months. I and my fiancee were searching for a beautiful spot for our pre-wedding photoshoot. And finally, we have selected Algonquin Park. We have decided to do some adventurous activities there. In the video, we would like to show our moments of trying adventures together. Especially, hiking and canoeing. It would be really fun. We have found a suitable trail for hiking in Algonquin Park. Had anyone tried hiking there? What would be the estimated amount for it? Please do share it here. Thanks!
    • Anybody getting married at the fives beach hotel in playa del carmen in 2020? I'd like to connect with others as we are experiencing some issues and misinformation with the karisma transition. Hoping we can all help each other!
    • Pronovias Pria Wedding Dress. Sweetheart neckline with beautiful soft lace detailing throughout. Low lace back with button detailing. This dress falls beautifully on your silhouette and is so comfortable to wear. Bought a size 16 for my big hips, but tailored it to fit more like a 12-14 (in street clothes I'm a size 10). If you're looking for a destination wedding dress that won't make you sweat all night, this one is for you! I absolutely loved this dress and will miss never wearing it again.  Alterations: Ribbon empire bow on belt at waist was removed and replaced with a sparkly applique. Train was removed. More pictures are available. Paid $1400 Cdn, asking for $500 - it's in good shape (looks like new with no markings!) and has already been professionally cleaned. 
    • My daughter is getting married in Punta Cana on May 23rd, 2020. The hotel is charging a fortune for centerpieces that I can make it easily. I need a contact of wholesale florist please. To buy directly. If anyone could help I appreciate
