I doubt many of our very large extended family will come to our Mexico wedding.  In fact, I will be surprised if we get maybe 2 from my mothers side and 2 from my fathers side.  Even my grandma isn’t coming.  Lots of friends say they are coming but haven’t reserved their room or flight.  But we knew this when we decided to get married in Mexico.  

You said it best…no one is as excited as we are about our wedding.   As long as my parents and brother come, I will be happy.

andi_isit303: Don’t feel sad about those who aren’t coming. Feel joy that you will be able to celebrate with those who are.

This probably won’t be a popular opinion, but I think living together for a considerable period of time before the weddding does affect people’s decison to attend or not. And that comes from someone who did live together before marriage.  In their eyes, very little is going to change in your life except you will be legally  married.

It is a reality for most of us that no one else does care as much as we do. Be happy for yourself and others will be happy for you too.
