I’m so sorry. Destination weddings are amazing, but can be difficult for guests. Its good that you prepped yourself that this might happen, and hopefully be able to cope a little better. My friend got engaged a couple months before me, and is having a destination wedding in November. I feel terrible, but really can’t afford to go in planning for my own wedding.

In the end all you need is you and your fiance and the rest will fall into place. Lotsa luck and hugs

@dynamic_duo: Oh I’m sorry to hear that… in saying that I am looking at pricing (not knowing your exact dates and most of the prices I am seeing are over $2000. Combined with a flagging economy over here I can certainly see how it would be difficult for it to pan out. Is there any way that you can involve her in the ceremony through technology – have digital streaming or someone Skyping the ceremony to her?

I know exactly how you feel. I have lived in Rome for six years, and my fiance is from here as well, so we are obviously getting married here. But my family is all from the west coast, so sadly four out of my five sister’s can’t make it, and no aunts, uncles, nephews, nieces or grandparents πŸ™ Luckily I have a lot of friends here, but it’s not the same as family.

It’s hard… maybe have an informal reception back home for everybody else? I would do this too, except everybody is so spread out that I wouldnt know where to do it. For me it is even a bigger picture, having decided to live over here permantly, I have to accept that I will always be far from my family.

Wish I could say something that might help. I guess just remember the most important people are you and your fiance.

I’d feel the same way if I traveled to hers and she didn’t travel to mine.  She should know the avarage price of tickets so she should have known if she would be able to to this in advance. 

I’ve heard that airplane tickets are cheapest 8 weeks before the travel date so tell her that.

Oh man I’m sorry….:( I totally know how you feel. My sister/MOH can’t come to the wedding because she’ll be in basic training at the time and I’m pretty devastated. No dw for us but I am afraid a few key people might not show because they’re kind of far flung. Is money the reason she can’t go? Maybe you could help her out with the plane ticket from NZ to CA?

@dynamic_duo: I’m so sorry, that really sucks. DWs are so hard. One of my close friends is getting married in Aruba… but it’s a month before our wedding! I know we have plenty of time to save, but right now I’m not sure if we can make it down there… I’m so totally bummed about it and hate that I’ll be missing their wedding. πŸ™
