It’s your wedding so of course it’s okay to cut the guestlist down! My cousin just did the exact same thing a few months ago. She sent out beautiful invites to all our family and friends, but then realized it wasn’t what she truely wanted. She then sent out retractions and planned for a smaller more intimate style wedding. Her guest list was cut from 150 to 25…I wasn’t even invited! haha. She made it wedding party, parents, and grandparents only.

Just remember it’s your day so do it how you want. I’m not really sure how age comes into play here or why you mentioned it, but it doesn’t really matter how old you are so I wouldn’t worry about that either.

Sounds like there’s going to be significant time between the two dates, so I think it’s perfectly okay to rethink your guest list. By then you will have established new friendships and maybe let go of some old ones, so it would be expected, I think.

I am guessing if you are postponing your wedding for several years people will not even be fazed about not being invited when they originally were. Between now and then enough time will have passed that I think most people will not even be planning on attending. If it were pushed back a couple of months, it would be a little different, but years- I think your in the clear.
