Family not attending

Howdy!

Just out of curiosity... is it going to make a big difference to the consulate, if my family cannot attend the wedding in Abidjan, Ivory Coast? Obviously, there's nothing that can be done about that since most of my family don't even have passports. However, they are doing video toasts and sending cards.

Thanks :)

No, it will not. There is more important evidence the consulate want to see than your family not being able to travel to another country. They understand the cost involved in these such cases. Just make sure you gather all evidence you can and you will be ok
