I didn’t invite my dad’s side of the family to the wedding because we have NEVER been close and they are all judgemental and rude and stuck up. Who wants people like that at their wedding? They will come and eat your food and drink up all your booze and bring all 20 (seriously they have ALOT of adopted AND foster kids) of their kids (whether you invited the kids or not!) and NOT even bother to bring a gift or card. Oh and BTW my dad has 14 BROTHERS AND SISTERS!!! So factor in that, their spouses, their kids and the guest list is WAY over my 100 guest list limit.

 

My mother and her side of the fam suggested a DW. I was on board with this because we had the accomodations covered for up to 50 guests if we were doing it in las vegas. Hubby wanted his fam to be able to come and he said they (along with Best Man and MOH) wouldnt be able to make it if it was there. (SIGH)

 

I invited some kids but not all. My restrictions were kids in the WP and WP’s kids, nieces an nephews and OOT fam’s kids. That’s it and that was only 20 kids.

@ZebraPrintMe:  Well that was what was on the guest list. All the kids did not show. We probably ended up having 10 kids and they were all older (10 and up) except our kids.

@ZebraPrintMe:  I totally get where you’re coming from.  From being told where to get married to who to invite I’m ready to say screw it and go to the courthouse.

@ZebraPrintMe:  THIS! I’m so lucky my sister/MOH has helped me find ways to not deal with that mess! A lot of times, I will try to think about it as though we’re not discussing my wedding. Imagine: “I heard Jennifer Aniston is getting married. She should do X at her wedding.” Personally, I don’t care what she does so I can nod and talk about how, yes, it would be a great idea for ‘her’ to invite all of her highschool teachers. And then I go on with my planning for my wedding. Much less stressful, and the person offering their advice can drop it and move on!

Yes, Jen’s wedding should be more child-friendly, good idea! (*books restaurant bar/club anyway*)
