RSVPs in...and hardly anyone is coming
Just cried my eyes out for about an hour. I have quite a large family and we opted for a wedding that's within 10 miles from the majority of them (even though me and H2B live 250 miles away).
I got the RSVPs back and other than my parents and brother, I have ONE cousin and ONE aunt coming. In my wildest glass-half-empty nightmares, I didn't expect this. They're all saying they can't get childcare for the night. I sympathise, but really? You don't know of a friend, trusted neighbour or babysitter who can't help out for a few hours?
I feel like it's going to be such a waste. I have two friends flying from the other side of Europe, yet my extended family won't come 6 miles. What a waste of money, planning,time, effort
