@AnaA:  If it’s like my church, there’s no need to invite everyone, or even most people. People are usually pretty understanding of the fact that you can’t invite everyone you know at church, because there are so many. At my church, tradition is anyone can attend church and witness the wedding (without an invitation) – because the church is a public place. That doesn’t mean all those people need to be invited to the reception.

Feel free to invite few people, or even no one, from school or work. Ask yourself: when you leave that work/school, will they still be your friends? Do you see them outside work/school hours? If not, no need to invite them.

Ask your parents to restrict the number of people they invite. (Which may be hard to do if they’re paying).

@AnaA:  don’t invite people who you dont see at least 10 timesa year one on one (like not church like people who are really in on your lifes who impact you) unless they are close family or something 


don’t invited everyones kid its like my moms best friend i love her … she has 5 sons and 1 daughter … they will all be coming b.c. i love them  but not all ofmy moms best friends kids who are my age are coming …. and those ppls teenage children are not coming either 


if it was up to my aunt … my moms friends daughters 4 (2 teen and 2 lil kids) would be coming though her daughter baby sat me and i love her only her and her husband are invited and maybe limit guests to ppl who are in real relationships (if they are younger guests who are coming with siblings like those 5 guys i might let them have dates … 3 of the 5 guys are single and tey no ppl they wont be shy 


so maybe limit guests to solos (who don;t know alot of ppl going) and serious relationship couples only

@AnaA:  people generally know that weddings are expensive. If you havent talked to the person or seen them in a while I would cut them from the list.
