Have you talked to your family at all about this?  For my second wedding, my daughter and my brother and his wife came from Oregon; my sister came from Mexico, my son came from New York, and even my ex-husband came from Maryland to be at my Massachusetts wedding.

@CARA1978:  I’m in PDX metro–I’ll come 😉 JK.  I hope that the people you really want to come can make it.  Talk to people, and find out?!

For my second wedding I had a good amount of relatives fly in to Maryland from California.  I was pleasantly surprised.  I think it has more to do with your particular fmaily than it being a second wedding.

I feel ya.  I was expecting 60 now looks like 40.  One of my long time bff thinks this is not the “one” either so she isnt even trying to attend.

@CARA1978:  I have the same fear myself, especially since part of my family is quite religious and weren’t very happy about my divorce (they only supported it because my ex husband didn’t want kids and they felt that was an acceptable reason to divorce.)  A few family members have already expressed that they can’t make it for various reasons and I feel like if it were my first wedding they would take the time to attend.  My FI has been really sweet about it, especially since he convinced me to do another small wedding when I really wanted to elope on an extended honeymoon to avoid this particular worry.
