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

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.
