- Wedding: June 2010
Since we started university together, my fiance and I share the same main group of friends and although we each have one or two good friends outside of this group, we spend the majority of our time with these people so obviously, we want them to be at our wedding.
The problem is, since this group of friends was formed a few years ago, people have come and gone, some hang out more often and some aren’t always around which is fine normally …. but when it comes to the wedding, it’s starting to become a problem.
While the core of the group (probably 6 or 7 people) are definitely going to be in attendance at the wedding (especially since 2 of the girls are my bridesmaids) … there’s a few friends of our friends who have starting attending our get-togethers whom my fiance and I aren’t close to.
While I know I don’t really want them at our wedding… (1. because we’re not super close with them & 2. because we’re having a small wedding with a guest list we’re really trying to crack down on) … I’m afraid these people will be offended that they’re not invited because we do hang out with them pretty often.
I’m also concerned that other members of the group might also be offended because they’re closer with these people than my fiance and I are. I know, I know, it’s our wedding, haha … but still, we see these people a lot and I don’t want it to cause a weird vibe in any post-wedding get-togethers.
I realize I might just have to bite the bullet and get over the fact that they will probably be hurt that they’re not invited, I was hoping some people on here might be experiencing the same problem or have any advice on how to deal with it? Thanks for any help you can give!
