Hi my husband and I want to have a vow nenewal, I want an intimate wedding, less than 100 people, problem is he has a HUGE family(19 siblings), we want to invite many people(i think 100 is too much) he wants to invite everyone. He is thinking of a hall that holds 350 guests(what?!) We are on a small budget (Nj is expensive too). How can I make him realize 350 is too many…

@brokeninnj: Show him real numbers! Then show him what you have in savings!

- Wedding: October 2013 - Tybee Island, GA
I showed my FI the number of people; and then how much each additional person would cost. He saw the final number $$ wise compared to having a REAL intimate (20-30 ppl) cost, and he was sold lol

Wow. I think you might just have to do it. I wouldn’t think of not having my siblings at my wedding… although I only have two. Still, they’re part of his immediate family.
