- Wedding: July 2013
My fiancé and I sat down (finally) and though we had finalized our guestlist.
With roughly 112 people I was actually under the impression that we did pretty good at keeping the list limited.
Since the wedding is on fourth of July weekend of this year (ignore my posted wedding date.. It changed and I forgot to fix it on here) we figured a chuck of the people won’t come anyway.. For a smaller wedding that’s a good thing in my opinion! Plus we are on a tight budget!
Well, my mother and grandmother have apparently been discussing my wedding without me and told me today that they think feeding that many people is going to be too expensive and want to look at my list and cut people off of it.. I come from a larger family and can’t take any of them off the list, of course Fiance doesn’t want to take any of his family and friends off the list and the only other option is to cut invited friends from work (only 21 people, half of which I’m positive wont come anyway). The problem here is that we already went through the trouble of getting their addresses and talking with them about the wedding.. I would feel SO rude if I just went to work tomorrow and told them “yeah sorry, you can’t come..” How much difference is 21 people gonna make anyway?!
They say fifty people is more reasonable but I’ve never thought of having a wedding that small.. I have too many important people I want to share my day with!
Its also extra frustrating since my grandmother went ahead a few weeks ago and added 10 people to my list who I don’t really even know or want at my wedding!
I feel like part of this is because my sister got married about 3 years ago and her wedding had 15-20 people tops because she wanted a very small intimate wedding.. Well, they need to understand that I’m not my sister!
I don’t know what to do. I needed to vent my frustrations and ask you Bees for advice I guess. Thanks for listening to my silly worries. I’m just stressed with five months to plan.
