So I know this probably isn't a 'dropping like flies' situation but with the luck I have and the stress this wedding has recently had on me, I don't feel a tonne of optimism.
Before my aunt booked to come to our wedding she had to make sure my cousin's grade 12 exams weren't the same week. She wouldn't even consider coming as she wasn't comfortable leaving him and my uncle alone (not sure why?) but I was understanding of it. Well about a month ago she was told the exams would be in December and she went ahead and booked the 3 of them and my sister (yes I have a nice aunt!).
Well apparently today she found out that the lady was wrong and the exams would be during our wedding. It was just a msg and it sounded like none of them would be coming. I called her but she couldn't talk and said she would call me tomorrow. I told her that she should call the school and demand that they let him write early because she was giving false information and booked a trip. Not sure how far she will get, but worth a shot. UGH! I really want them there, atleast her, and it's frustrating she may lose $600 and still have to pay for my sister and not get to enjoy it herself. She could come alone, but that's a story for another time
Having a completely selfish moment - which I am allowed once in awhile - we also lose half of our booking bonus. Which is substantial amount of $$ - as we needed 34 and now would only have 32. It would almost cover the cost of our photog and allow me to splurge for the Mariachi band. I can ditch the mariachi band and pay the difference of the photog out of our budget, but that cushion was really nice and was helping me be at ease with all of this money budgeting business. It kind of sucks, but again that's a selfish moment and I would rather her just be there.
Fiance's cousin was booking thru another airline as her son works for one, but apparently she doesn't get the bonus as he isn't coming. They are also a family of 3 so we approached them with this potential need for 3 more people and they are considering it. AHHHHH
So I hope this isn't a large snowball effect, but had to vent.
