I think that’s completely normal.  In fact, I actually just had a little breakdown today because I realized that, even though we’re having a small destination wedding and only inviting those that we thought would come (50 guests) I realized that some of my closest friends won’t be able to come due to costs or other issues.

We too were trying to figure out if we could help allieviate the cost of travel for some of our guests, just to help them come. 

I’m sorry you’re going through this.  But remember, it’s just a dream that’s showing your deepest fears.  And also remember, the ceremony is just for you and your partner, and nothing else matters.  Although it would mean so much to be surrounded by your closest friends and family, what really matters that day is you making your committment to each other.  Anyone else that is able to make it, is just extra, and it’s great if they do. 

Congrats to you both, and I am so happy you have been able to find your soulmate.  Keep your head up and tell your brain to shut up when you go to bed, because it’s going to be beautiful, no matter what 😉

I think this is totally normal–I have/had the same fears. And we are also having our reception in a small town that’s also 2.5 hours away from the nearest airport. Many of our guests will be driving in 2+ hours as well. And you know, people ARE coming. We’re not going to have a stellar RSVP rate–maybe more like 50%, rather than the usual 75-80%, but people are coming. And I’m sure that people WILL come to yours as well. 

Remember that weddings are wonderful and memorable at ANY size. Our wedding (which was separate from our upcoming reception) had 8 people in attendance and it was lovely. My best friend’s had 3–her, her Darling Husband, and the minister–and she wouldn’t change it for the world. I’ve been to weddings with 500+ people and weddings with only 25. And they were all great. Yours will be too.
