I know it is touch now but just keep thinking about the fact that they wont be there because they can’t not because they don’t want to. And in the end it is all about you and Fiance. You wont be thinking about who is there and who isn’t. You will just be enjoying each other.

Are you hiring a videographer to capture your day that you could then send to your family over seas. 


Or, would it be financially possible to honeymoon somewhere safe for you to travel to but closer to where they live (Greece or Austria or something) and meet up there? That is at least cheaper for them.

THat was one of my ideas is send them the video after the wedding or you could try to Skype them in. I am not sure how awesome the quality would be but at least you would know they are there watching. 

I had to skype my mom in for when i tried on dresses because she is homebound and can’t get out of the house. 

I hope you feel better! Your wedding day will be amazing no matter what.

Its not the same, but maybe you could set up a web cam at the ceremony and stream it live on the internet for your distant family to watch? 

Or at a point in the reception set up skype on a large screen so someone there could give a toast?

I am sorry that you are sad. It must be tough.

I’m sorry, that must be so tough. I think the idea that a PP posted about trying to honeymoon somewhere that they could meet up with you is a great idea. Then you could all go out for a special meal and celebrate together.

i’m sorry, it must be so hard to be far away from so many people you love. i second pp’s suggestion of a webcam or skype or something so you can include some of the people

If you’re scared of going back to Ukrain, have you thought of having a party for your family and friends in a country that’s closer like poland, Slovakia, or hungary.  They are safter and would not cost your friends and relatives adn arm and a leg.
