I am an introvert/ shy person by nature which is one of the reasons why we decided to keep our wedding small (around 25 closest family and friends). Even though our wedding is small i love my friends i am allowing them to bring their boyfriends (who they haven’t been dating long and i’ve never met). Thinking about it i feel kindof awkward having people at our super small wedding that I have never met (and won’t meet until the day of). Also i’ve been warned by other people about my friends boyfriend who is always drunk/rowdey which makes me nervous.
This was more of a vent & to see if anyone is feeling awkward about strangers at their wedding as well? or am i just over thinking this because im shy by nature? I feel like this would be a non issue if i was having a bigger wedding..

Initially I was. My fiance has a big family and his parents are very involved in their community so they have invited lots of family and friends I don’t know. I sort of gave up control of that aspect. I’m fairly introverted myself and until I met some of these ladies at my bridal shower I was very nervous but they are some of the sweetest people I’ve met. Just remember everyone is there to celebrate your marriage whether you know them or not and no one is going to be a jerk to you or anything like that (if they are, that will just reflect on them anyway) so just enjoy the day and focus on it being a celebration of you and your FI. And I’ll take a deep breath and try to follow my own advice at my wedding lol

Songstress_7: Aww this made me feel so much better! I will definitly take your advice and keep that in mind. Being a bride with the attention/spotlight can be scary for someone who is normally shy!

There will probably be a few strangers at my wedding, because I am allowing my friends who dont know anyone else at my wedding to bring dates. I figure I probably wont even see them really, because I doubt my friends will make an effort to introduce us and I’m sure I’ll be so busy thinking about other things that if I do meet them it wont even be an issue.
I dont think it will be an issue for you. You’ll probably be so focused on getting married that you wont even notice the tagalongs

LegallyBrunetteBee: We had one friend bring his newish girlfriend to our wedding that I had never met. I met her as I was hugging everyone after the ceremony. She was lovely and we chatted for ages last weekend when I was up at DH’s hometown for a sporting game. And it didn’t hurt that she gushed to me how much she loved our wedding, haha.
