- Wedding: October 2013
Hey Bee’s, my Fiance and I have decided to move our wedding date to THIS fall, versus next Fall, so since it’s much closer now, we decided to go full steam ahead with the planning. But I’m stuck on the guest list. My Handsome Irish Stud is from Ireland, and he says he doesn’t want to burden his family financially to fly over here for the wedding because the economy is worse over there. The simple solution to that would be to get married over there, but all my family is here and they can’t afford to fly over there either. Not only that, but I’m not good with my mom’s side of the family. I am in my 20’s and they refuse to acknowledge me as an adult even though I bought my own home, own my own car, have a steady job, etc. They also have had MANY, at LEAST 10 weddings, baby showers, etc…and I have NEVER been invited. To ANY of them. So I know this may seem childish, but it would bother me to shell out money to have them attend, knowing I wasn’t worth an invite for any of their speial days. What I’m saying is, If I’m not worth their money they are certainly not worth mine. But with all that taken in consideration, I’m looking at a blank guest list. Eloping is not an option to my Groom, as he feels very strongly about having a wedding..but you can’t have a wededing without any guests! I have some friends, but I can count them all on one hand. What do I do about this?
