Oh :-/ this makes me nervous..

We are inviting all living together/engaged/married couples.. but not all members of a family (the mom is friends with my mom.. I’m friends with the daughter.. I’m not inviting the brother I haven’t seen in years).

I just don’t know how to draw the line because someone will always be left out. It’s so hard.

@DanielleZara: Yeah agreed. Right now I feel bad I can’t invite my parents’ friends’ adult kids that I grew up with, all of whom invited me to their weddings, but that’s 10 extra people (3 kids in one fam, 2 in the other, and all their spouses) – and I haven’t seen a single one of them in many years. I figure I’d love for their parents to be there but can justify not inviting all the grown kids. Tough decisions, though.

And don’t apologize for worrying me – I just started a thread yesterday or the day before about how stressed I am about the guest list, so you just hit my current sore spot! πŸ™‚

@DanielleZara: haha yeah.. our answer to the B list and all these questions is to over-invite. We’re aiming for 100, inviting 120 (well, I managed to slip in one more i REALLY wanted to invite last night, so inviting 121! Hee hee). If we end up with like 90 expected, we’ll bust out with a bunch more invites, but I think our list is so ‘trim’ already that most people will come.
