its all changing
So we had our wedding all planned out for Mexico and ready to book when flights go on sale in 2 weeks time, a couple of family members and friends couldn't make it and we realise its a lot to ask of people and a huge commitment both in terms of time and money, but the majority of important guests were all happy to travel for us. Now we don't know if the best man can make it. Obv the OH is a bit upset with this especially as the BM has just booked another holiday, however he has told us he does want to come and will see what his situation is in July. Do we risk booking our wedding this month and then the best man not coming? I know it would devastate the OH.
Also we have just been told that my brother cant come now as he cannot get the time off work. He was originally told it wouldn't be a problem and now theres no way he can make it as he can only take 5 days holiday out of work time.
So the dilemma is this - do we keep the original plan and go to Mexico where we had our first holiday and also where my OH proposed and risk it just being the two of us, parents and one bridesmaid, or do we get married somewhere closer to home so we can have more of our guests present? If it was a shorter flight time and the possibility of guests coming for a weekend rather than a 2 week holiday more aunties and uncles etc could potentially make it. The location is important to us, however I don't want to get married with none of our loved ones there!
We have no idea where to even start if looking for somewhere else as I have never imagined getting married in the UK and have always pictured a beach wedding. Gone from having a clear idea of the whole wedding to not having a clue where to start!
