I’m sorry! Don’t let it get you down, though. First of all, you have plenty of time.  But the truth is, people might not be able to afford it.

I was overly optimistic about my wedding, and I’m starting to realize it’s VERY expensive to fly to Europe this year and some people just aren’t going to be able to do it.

It doesn’t mean they don’t care! And you will have a fantabulous time no matter what!

Well…I’m not sure if my post will be helpful, but I want to point some things out –

First, like you said, it’s a DW.  They’re expensive!  Plus, at least at my FI’s work, you cannot schedule time off sooner than 6 months ahead of time, so maybe your guests don’t know if they first off, can get the time off, second, if they DO get their time off, will they want to spend it on your wedding as opposed to a vacation with their own family?

Second, it’s the holiday season.  Money is tight enough for some people, and I’m sure booking a cruise is not on the priority list when they have presents to buy.

Third, around me, the ecomony sucks.  FI got laid off this summer and was fortunate enough to get another job right away but most people aren’t that lucky.  A DW is a luxury few people can afford right now.

It’s not that “no one cares”, but my personal opinion is that you put a lot of pressure on your guests when you choose to have a DW.
