@MissCT:  Yes, me! I told my FI that I had to invite a few more friends to liven it up. My immediate family doesn’t even mingle with each other, so I feel like it can be very awkward. Can you invite a few more people maybe?

I worry about this too, and we’re having a wedding of 150 people. But the vast majority of them are older relatives — only 25-30 will be our friends. Maybe you can plan some activities for people, like a photobooth or a thumbprint tree or a bags game? Or maybe make little books that say something like “Write marriage advice to us in here!” and put them on the tables?

@MissCT:  I hear you. I have the same problems. We are not planning on a DJ either. And his family is the one that likes the board games. I have a hard time getting my parents off the couch for anything. But part of this is because they are more elderly and kind of infirm. Sometimes I even think they won’t come, or they will just stay for like 45 minutes.

FI and I are in the same boat too, except we have family flying in from all over the world. We don’t want to disapoint everyone by having a boring wedding, but since we are also keeping it very small (around 90) it will also be harder to get people on the dance floor and get people mingling I feel.

Did anyone have a situation like this that ended up turning out just fine??
