You aren’t alone!! My FI is in exactly the same situation and another Bee wrote about the same thing. The best advice I heard someone give– here on the forum– was that this is going to be your family now! If you look at it that way, you’ll have a LOT of people at the wedding! 

But don’t worry, no one will think it’s odd. Just make the most of your day/evening and everyone will be charmed by you. 

Also, by that time, who knows? Things can change.

That is the reverse of our situation.  We aren’t having sides in the church. Weddings are about bringIng people together anyways

It’s about the same for us. Of the 350 people invited, only 8 are my friends and FI has about 25 friends invited. We wanted to invite a lot more of our friends but our families are so huge there was just no way.

@LoveKurtGeiger:  I had my sister, a cousin, 3 bridesmaids, and 2 friends who came to my wedding. Then a few family members, grandmother, aunts, uncles and parents. That’s it. I got really sad about that for awhile during the process – but on the day, it was perfect. I knew those were the people who cared about me the most. And Im so glad there werent “half-assed” friends there.

@LoveKurtGeiger:  You also have plenty of time to re-connect with your old friends and make some new ones!
