Hello there bees:
My fiance and I have decided to have a small ceremony at my home church with just immediate family and a few close friends. The guest list is about 20 people including us and the pastor and his wife.
We each have a big extended family of which we are pretty close, but we haven’t told them we plan to marry in 3 weeks. They all know we are engaged and that we plan to have a big reception next May – they just don’t know we are getting married next month.
My mom this is is very wrong and keeps stressing me about it.
But my FI and I chose to do it this way b/c since we decided to get married next month rather than next year, we have a limited budget so we just wanted to make it small with immediate fam and not all the big production. We will celebrate with everyone next year. We didn’t tell our extended fam b/c we didn’t think it made sense to tell them about something they aren’t invited to. We thought they would have a harder time accepting not being invited than just not knowing and finding out after the fact.
Are we being unreasonable not inviting or telling our extended families about our ceremony next month??
