I can’t completely relate because we plan to get married in our hometown, but so far the majority of the guest list is people that FH knows. Most of my side of the family isn’t that supportive and I have around 10 guests of the 30-40 we plan to invite and most of my 10 is family and a handful of friends. (Maybe I should have been more social in college?)

It really does suck though and I’m sorry you’re having to deal with this 🙁

I only have 15 relatives to invite to the wedding, and our guest list is 130. Fiance only invited about 1/2 of his family. So yeah, I’m doing a lot of work for a lot of people I dont know. We live on the opposite side of the country from about 1/2 of my family, I’m guessing they probably wont be making it.

As for your situation, I would just stop making the visits out to see them. When they ask just tell them they made an excellent point about the cost of travel when they decided not to come to your wedding.

we are having the opposite problem. the ONLY person comming from his side is his mother. I don’t blame them though, it is multipul thousands of dollars to fly here from the south and they have small children, but I do worry he won’t feel as included.
