I COMPLETELY understand.

I have no family in Canada other then my mom, dad, brother and daughter.

FI’s family is all here. We are having the wedding in Montreal wish is about 6 hours driving away fromOntario. All our family is from the states.

I feel bummed that they cant come and bummed that I feel like I don’t really have much of “my” side there. 

Just try to think about those who can make it and about how awesome your day will be!

I had a few moments like this. My wedding was semi-destination as well. I had a lot of shocking yes RSVPs and even more disheartening no’s. Usually there was a good reason but on 1 or 2 it was a simple, “we don’t want to” and its hard but you get over it. What makes it better is after the wedding when everyone talks about how wonderful it was and the people that didn’t attend suddenly realize there mistake (it helped me at least). In the mean time focus on the positive.

I have the opposite problem.  I am praying that we don’t get very many guests, at all!

That’s gotta suck. Myabe it’s a financial thing for people. Lots of folks are unemployed, under-employed, and/or afraid that they could lose their job at any moment. It could just be financially impossible or risky to spend money on travel for them right now.
