you think exactly like I do.  I’m always afraid no one will show up.  What I’ve learned is that the people who love you will always come through.  Yes, there will be a few people who can’t make it for reasons similar to yours but most will find a way.  Don’t stress, you will have a wonderful wedding surrounded by the people who love you.

Remember to keep the big picture in mind.  What I really care about with my friends is do they love me, support me, and are they there in my time of need.  Like – when my husband or child is hurt, sick, in the hospital – stuff like that.  While I would have loved to have all my friends at my wedding (many years ago) we had a pretty strong decline rate.  My wedding was one day, but they have always been there when I have needed them.

That being said, you are also in a time of life when things change a lot – especially when you move far away from family and friends.  I did that too, by the way.  It is a time when relationships change and it is all about the effort you put into it.  You have facebook, skype, etc to keep in touch with these people.  Use them!  Put the effort in and I’ll bet you will be pleasantly surprised.  If you just let life happen, the friendships probably won’t last that long.
