… 20 or so is just FH’s family who have caused me grief or I’ve never met in my life. My best friends can’t come due to flight prices and I’m bummed. I always thought these girls who I’ve been friends with for years would be there for me. I understand, I do. But seriously, it’s a bummer. These were the people I would have picked to be my bridesmaids if I had anyone standing up with me.
I have three or four friends coming right now (it’s small but we invited around 100 people). They are new friends.
I’m telling FH to invite his coworkers since they are honestly more excited for us than his family.
Nearly 1 month to go and I’m wondering if the day is even going to feel special to me.

It will be special because you are marrying the man you love. 🙂 I feel where you’re coming from, a lot of people that I thought for sure would be there, are unable to make it for totally understandable reasons. I know it stings, but just repeat to yourself that at the end of the day, you will be married. That is all that matters!

@SimplyChic11: I’m sorry you’re bummed. That really stinks that they can’t come. I’ve had a few people tell me they can’t come to our wedding as well…like my MOH’s parents whom I’ve known since I was 5. I seriously cry every time I talk about it. So I know how you feel. Try not to let it get you down too long. The day will still feel special because you’re marrying your Fiance. I’m sure more people will RSVP yes soon. Either way, just enjoy your day. You’re marrying your FI! 🙂

i have a feeling you will still get lots more RSVPs. i think lots of people are last minute reply-ers, or you will have to chase RVSPs. Although i know how you feel. i had half the number of people come to my wedding that i thought/expected would come based on what people had told me. I did have a Destination Wedding, so backouts were to be expected, it still felt sucky no matter where the wedding was to be held…..BUT let me tell you – ON my wedding day, the ONLY thing that mattered was that i and my husband were there and were marrying each other. Nobody’s presence or absense could have messed with how happy I felt, so trust that your day WILL be special!

My mom planned a small, at home wedding with very few guests. For various legitimate reasons, many of the guests couldn’t come. Her wedding was smaller than expected but so lovely, so special.
I’m sorry that your close friends can’t come. I would be sad, too. Most of my friends live thousands of miles away and there is a definite possibility that they won’t be able to come to my future wedding. 🙁
Your wedding will be wonderful, though – it will.
