    That is definitely a sticky situation but this is a decision that you and your soon to be husband have to make. My advice would be to discuss it with him and see what he says. Just remember that the wedding is one day and your marriage is a lifetime.

    My opinion: If I feel like hosting a party, I’ll host one. If I want to feed and booze up a bunch of people/acquaintences/strangers, I’ll invite them or donate to a soup kitchen.

    On my wedding day, I want an event filled with love, support, compassion, and understanding by those who have stood/will stand by us in the past, present and future. Anyone who cannot understand/respect/accept that about me and my wishes for that one day probably wouldn’t be invited anyway. If they can’t respect my choices, how can they respect my marriage, given my marriage to that man is also a “choice”?

    The day is about the two of you celebrating your love and the joining of your lives together as one. Yea, you have a family and he has a family, but in the end, it’s about the two of you. Create an event (big or small) that ensures you feel loved, supported and celebrated, and omit anyone who will not respect and contribute to that feeling. Life is too short to spend it trying to please everyone but yourself.

    Good luck & best wishes! ((hugs))
