    I do not know for sure, but I think that Bride’s family may not be thrilled with the wedding. As mentioned above, Bride’s family happens to coincidentally live in our same city as us, even as the couple does not. We have at various points invited Bride’s sister and parents over and have received a cool response.

    To clarify, contact information not provided was for Bride’s Family. Bride was there but not family.

    Now I am feeling pretty bad about my cursed monkey’s paw wish that I wouldn’t have to go to the wedding.

    @Fyodor did you accidentally cancel my wedding too??? ha!

    I think that they were paying for it themselves – not sure how the deposit and cancelation work out financially. Many of these contracts have act of G-d type clauses.

    Veritek, I am really sorry that you guys are having to cancel. Hopefully a small silver lining will be your SIL better appreciating her loved ones. Are you guys going to have a private ceremony or hold off on everything?

    Thank god they’re not still doing that destination crap. I have no problem with a bride and groom going someplace exotic ON THEIR OWN WITHOUT GUESTS to get married, but I cannot fathom the level of entitlement and self-importance it must take to expect people to spend travel money and vacation time just so you can have a gloried party. Freaking jackholes.

    That being said, Fyodor, all you can do is grab some popcorn and watch the drama unfold. Not your circus; not your monkeys. And pray for an open bar.

    What peeves me about the destination wedding is when they plan it for a vacation spot and then either

    1. Demand that guests only stay for the wedding activities and do not come early or stay after the wedding for a vacation
    2. Arrange for guests to pay fees that cover the bride and groom’s extra expensive hotel room (e.g. price on web is $300 per night but arrangement with hotel is $400 per night so that the collective extra $$ pays for the bridal suite).
