- Wedding: July 2011
Nothing has yet stressed me out about wedding planning, but this guest list is really getting to me! My parents are paying for most of the wedding, so they have been a big part of all of the decisions. I understand this, and am pretty easy going, so have been pretty much letting it go especially on things that don’t matter as much to me. However, now that we are on the guest list, i’m getting frustrated.
I have a big family and Fiance has a big family, we are trying our best to limit the guest list due to the capacity of our venue, but don’t want to leave anyone that we really are close with out. So we wrote up a list. Since our families are large, both of us have had to cut out friends that we are not quite as close with. We have kept it to just very close friends. FI’s parents did not invite any of their friends, but when my parents got their say on their part of the list they want to invite everyone they know! Including one of my ex-boyfriend’s parents (who they are friends with still) and this makes Fiance very angry(that’s a whole other issue!) And to make matters worse my mom is telling me that Fiance and I have too many people on the list, so we should probably make cuts, while they keep everyone they want on the list. It is our day!But, every time we start talking about it, nothing gets resolved. They are not giving an inch!(especially about the ex-boyfriends parents)
just a vent I guess, any advice?
