well hopefully i will but the offer thats on now is much much better than the 1 that was on offer when we booked and ive been told we are only entitled to the offer that was on as we booked but to be honest if i dont get the dress box im gonna buy one as there fab and normal keep sake boxes for dresses are much more expensive im gonna order one for my bridesmaids dresses too

so far we have 11 booked with poss another 5-11 still to book
my future mother in law is terrified of flying and has been great about it booked the day after us ha ha i had a few issues with my (only) brother he and his wife have just had another baby and have decided not to come obviously im gutted but we said from the very beginning (we told everyone in april last year that we were going to jamaica) that we would love them to come but understand its a long way and expensive so completely understand if they cant make it but they just avoided it for ages and it caused a lot of friction and upset but they finally told me and we all know where we stand now
I also had some people say straight away yeh yeh will deffinately be there and now avoid the subject including my best friends! I just wish they would just say sorry we cant make it
its not as stress free as i had thought ha ha

Funny that we have been going through the same things with family and friends, & sorry to hear that your brother can't attend but great news about the baby. You should skype each other on the day!
I have only immediate family on my side coming and my partner has lots & lots as he has a very big family. (& its my mother in law to be that is the nervous flyer too!!! - her and her husband - but she has been amazing- they did upgrade to premium which I think will help to make the flight less nerve-wracking !!)
Some of our friends have been really great very honest and told us straight that its not possible for them, but others have said yes defiantly and then avoid the "booking up" bit! very similar to your situation! We have said that its no problem with us if they are unable to attend as we know its such a big ask. I have found it hard with bridesmaids as we don't want to commit to buying expensive dresses and things if they are then going to be unable to go. A few have mentioned booking in the holiday sales / late deals if something comes up but thats leaving it way too late for me to organise dresses & colours, so i've just said thats no problem with us but I will need to have you as guests. (I don't want to sound mean to them but I think its better all round when everyone is upfront and honest).
Have you had any luck with your friends since? How many bridesmaids are you hoping to have? xx

Congrats to you!! How are your plans going - do you have most things sorted now? Gosh October will fly by you will have to report back to us after your wedding!! I have gone for the pearl island package it looks amazing, do you know if it includes any extras for the reception and a room upgrade? I also love the look of the blue lagoon restaurant! Have you opted for any entertainment?
Its always hard with friends and family isn't it - hopefully your sis will make it! Def a good idea to have a plan in place though just incase. Would you have a celebration back at home after the wedding for people that can't attend? Thats what me and my partner are thinking about doing xxx

congrats nic xx
it will soon be here im in the same situation over siblings and babies we gave everyone 2 years notice.
sophie we have upgrades the flights too well we have along with my mum and dad and jasons mum and step dad think it will be quite nice having that time with just our parents
im having 2 bridesmaids (both jasons sisters) no maid of honor as this was going to be 1 of my best friends but it doesn't look like they are coming!! we didn't ask his sisters to be bridesmaids until they had booked and i wasn't going to ask my friends until they had booked as we didn't want to put anyone under pressure if they really couldn't make it. Was going to have my little nephew until we found out there was going to be another on the way so now they cant come i now have a baby niece too even more gutted as a little flower girl would have been very sweet! Ive had a little issue with my cousins little girl asking about bridesmaids but i just dint feel comfortable having her if i cant have my own niece and nephew is that mean? and they haven't booked yet so they not definitely coming yet. Jason hasn't decided on his best man yet but hes using the same plan of wait till they book
sorry for the long winded post!
nic have you booked a photographer?
