I am having some extreme issues as far as my guest list goes. My fiance does not have a very big family, but I do. He wants close family and friends to come, which I have no problem with but at the same time, if I invite someone from my family and not another, I think they will get mad or feel offended. I mean I know we cant invite everyone, I just do not want anyone to hold a grudge.
Another thing, we want to have a wedding with no kids ( in exeption of the wedding party kids) . How can I word that in the invitations?

When it comes to the guest list, you just need to hold tight to your number and really think about who absolutely HAS to be invited. Make sure to list those people out first, and then complete your list with the people you’d LIKE to come. Guest lists are never easy, so you just have to make sure you can stand by your choices.
We didn’t invite kids to our wedding. We just made sure to only address save-the-dates and invitiations to the adults, and we spread word via word of mouth through our families (where most of the kids would have come from). If anyone RSVPed back with kids attending…there was a slightly awkward conversation, but then everyone got over it. 😉

@Gemstone: Thank you!
It is so hard, but I’m sure I will be able to be firm about what I want. In the end, it is my wedding.
