That’s too bad, but not an unexpected consequence of a destination wedding. I have been considering the possibility of a Destination Wedding, and I had to stop and ask myself if I’ll really be okay if most people can’t make it. It sucks that it’s mostly his side that is unable, but I’m sure your family will graciously welcome him into the family and he’ll end up having a ball.

He’s probably just a little disappointed right now, and I’m sure he’ll be all smiles when it actually comes around. 🙂

Unfortunately, this is pretty common with destination weddings. However, it will still be lovely and know that the people that declined do wish they could have come.

Is this unexpected that your Fiance sister couldn’t travel when she was that pregnant? It seems like something you might have taken into consideration when booking a date for a Destination Wedding and of course the grandparents want to be there for the birth. I sympathize with you if they dropped out last minute because they suddenly think the due date it’s too close to the wedding.

I know it’s easy to say but just make the best of who is coming and appreciate that your inlaws and SIL have valid reasons for not being able to attend.
