- Wedding: November 2014 - Nazareth Hall
Hey all! Just wanted to share my GREAT news. Shortly after me and FH got engaged, we were greeted with a guest list that topped over 300 people from my FI’s family alone. My family’s list is 85 people total, including the bridal party.
Me and FH sat down and were able to get the list down to 231 people which made me feel better but still more people then I had wanted. So I had a minor freak out this past Saturday and was really feeling down about the wedding and my wonderful future hubby spoke with his parents and got them to change their minds.
I have never been that comfortable with all the attention on me by people I didn’t know well, even when everyone was asking to see my ring I felt awkward and almost embrassed at all the attention, my best friend even told me I was red in the face. I don’t know a third of FI’s family, which sounds bad but they are NEVER around, don’t show up to family functions, nothing. Not even my FI knows all his relatives.
So then I got a call last night and FMIL and FFIL have decided to match my family’s guest list of 85 people putting us at 170, even. Still a lot of people, but I am over the moon right now!!!! Thank you for sharing in my happiness
