We set the date of the wedding on holiday but we just realized that we made a mistake because since it was a long holiday a lot of people have their own vacation. The date is getting near and we do not want to be surprised that only few would be able to make. Those people are important to us. Please give us advice in this situation. Thanks

If you haven't heard from the other people, I'd suggest calling and following up with those who have not yet RSVP'd. Also, talk to your venue to determine how to adjust for fewer guests (you don't want lots of empty tables)

This is a tricky one. My personal experience has been that a turn out of 70 per cent is a good one. Close family members and very good friends usually make an effort to attend. However your wedding date is a personal one and it is very hard to plan around others, especially if some of the others may not attend by choice. If you know some are planning to be away and want to attend then you can consider that. But don't force anyone to attend by telling them you are planning around them. Hopefully they know how important it is and will be there for you.

See if your guests could be included in your holiday celebration. Maybe an extended stay after the wedding and a family/guest feast the day of the holiday....
