    Don’t cancel. Maybe you can throw something back home with his friends to celebrate?

    Although it’s too bad that his family can’t come I don’t think you should cancel! It sounds like there are still a lot of people who are excited and willing to share your special day!

    I don’t think you need to cancel your ceremony in Peru– it sounds like there are lots of very legitimate reasons for his friends/family not coming, and it sounds to me like it might actually be a more comfortable affair if they are not there, especially if he has an uneasy relationship with his parents. It’s too bad his friends can’t come, but if your husband is OK with things that way, then I say go ahead!

    Don’t cancel. I think in this case having a at home reception for his friends and family to come celebrate your marraige would be a good idea. It doesn’t have to be fancy and an be a simple dinner or bbq

    @ginibri:  I am so sorry.  My family (mom and two sisters) cannot make a 3 hour plane ride to my wedding.  They all have a reason why they cannot go.  So I totally understand what he feels. 

    My family drags with them so much drama that it’s probably going to be better if they cannot go.  It will be super sad, and I will feel like such a reject, but do not cancel, if you want your convalidation in the Peruvian church.  I doubt there is a scenario that will work for everyone anyway!

    Don’t cancel. I’m having a small-moderate size wedding (80 guests) and not one of them are my fiancés family. He is from Egypt, and the wedding is in Canada. It’s just a geographic reality that they can’t make it.

    Keep getting excited for your special day. All the best!
