  1. Alyssa's not going and I think it's great she set that boundary. She'd be traveling to weddings and showers all the time if she didn't. Travel is expensive. Good for her, that shows courage!

    1. What? Where did you hear that? Instagram? I can't believe that she didn't go to her own brother's wedding. So sad.😥

    2. We don't know why she didn't.

    3. It makes a big difference when you have 18 siblings! It’s not as if she only has a few, like most people. They can’t possibly do it all.

    4. She said that herself in a post. Because she’s been to a wedding in November a wedding in December and family I love you day in February

    5. Alyssa said her family wasn’t attending Lawson’s wedding due to the cost of plane tickets for six of them! She said it in one of her You Tube vlogs.

    7. All the siblings and kids where at the wedding. Is something wrong with her. Her health, pregnancy or money problems?

    8. Alyssa couldn’t go by herself? There’s nothing wrong with that unless John couldn’t/wouldn’t take care of the girls.

    9. 3:38 It's really nobody's business why they didn't go.

    10. These two superstar yacht-marrying people could have paid to have their whole family fly in for free.

  3. So excited for you two to marry tomorrow.🤵👰🏻‍♀️💕 It's a little unusual to marry on a weekday but I understand it's cheaper than a weekend wedding too. Hope all 19 of Lawson's siblings are in attendance and some have a part in the ceremony as groomsmen and bridesmaids and some of his nieces and nephews are flower girls and ring bearers too. Can't wait to see the photos of the big day from People and US Magazine later on tomorrow/Friday online. Please post as soon as possible when photos are made available online from one of the magazine's. I've been anticipating this wedding for months as I imagine it will be the biggest in Bates history with 1,000 guests since Tiffany is an actress with celebrity friends like Tom Holland and Zendaya from Spiderman movie franchise (as she has acted a small part according to the internet in one of those movies).

    1. I doubt they were concerned about the cost. Probably it was more about when the venue they wanted was available. After all they went to Italy to get engaged so they aren't pinching pennies or anything like that.

    2. Lawson and Tiffany have said that there will be about 200 people at the wedding. They said it will just be family and close friends.

    3. Actually, it’s a small wedding.

      Delete
    4. If you watch their YouTube posts, they gave wedding info already. Less than 200 people coming, only a few of the siblings are in the wedding, and not all the Bates siblings are coming. California is a long ways to travel. Tiffany is also not an A list actress… hasn’t been in anything in quite a long time.

    5. Why would you invite 1000 people to your wedding? You couldn't possibly have the time to visit with each one at a reception. How do you write that many thank-you notes or handle that many gifts? Seems like a wedding that got out of control, between 2 people who think they need a large audience. Personally, I wouldn't bother going to a wedding with that many guests. It's too impersonal.

  4. So happy for you both. God's Blessings on your new lives together

  5. I just wish you all were still on tv. I miss your show so much. I was looking forward to seeing the wedding and births. Congrats to you all

  6. Seems odd to have a wedding on a Thursday but that's up to them. I know they can save money by getting married on a weekday. I do hope they gave some thought to how this weekday choice may inconvenience their guests.
    I'm finding this site is almost impossible to leave a comment on. Good grief!

    1. Lawson and Tiffany said they are purposely trying to make their wedding small and intimate. That might be part of why they chose to get married on a weekday. They anticipate having about 200 people at the wedding.

    2. Guests are free to decline the invitation if a weekday wedding is inconvenient. I don't question someone else's wedding plans.

  10. Weddings on the weekends are probably booked out for a long time after all the weddings that had to be postponed because of the pandemic

  11. I'm guessing their honeymoon destination is Santorini, Greece. Any other guesses?

  12. Congratulations Tiffany and Lawson. God Bless
