I feel the same way you do! My list isn’t as large as yours… It will probably be around 150-200 when all is said and done, but many people I’ve talked to (in person, not on the bee!!) have given me the eye roll and said why so big? why so many people?

This is not a big fancy affair by any means. We’ll be on a tight budget just like most other people! We just have a lot of family and a lot of friends that we could not imagine not having with us on the day that we get married!

I say good for you that you have so many people that want to share your day with you and your soon-to-be 🙂 

I think most people tend to think big wedding = expensive/lavish wedding and are snarky about that.

After reading over my post, I realized that the first sentence may have come off snarky.  I didn’t mean it that way at all.  I really am happy that you have so many people that want to join you in celebrating that day.  As someone who has the opposite, I’m truly envious 🙂

You know what’s funny is I got the same comments from people about my ‘big’ 140-person affair and the worst offender was from an aunt who had an even bigger wedding herself!

Absolutely! What we wanted the most was to be able to invite all of our friends and family, and it turned out to be the best celebration I have ever been to! That was our dream, and we were so blessed to be able to make it happen.
