Your demands are definitely valid.

I’m having the same problem with people not wanting to RSVP. I’ve been explaining to most that if you don’t RSVP, we will assume you’re not attending.

Stand firm and only agree to something if it’s not a big deal to you.

@Miss Bowling:it so hard for men to understand how much planning goes into a wedding! they have no idea. my Fiance though that we could pull off a 200 guest wedding for $5000…..ummm no

i think you and him need to sit down and make a task list of what you need to accomplish month to month. first being set a budget and narrow down our guest list! Your Groomsmen dont need to bring guest unless they are married because they wont be able to sit with them during dinner anyway!

I also suggest finding a venue!! QUICK…because aug 2012 is filling up fast!!

im sorry your going through this though boo!!

@Miss Bowling: Sorry that you have to go through all this. Yes you are valid in your thinking…. The point to all this seems to be on your shoulders when you didnt want the whole big scene. The important thing is to stick to your guns and do what you feel is best. If no one is willing to help, then they have to understand and move on from that.

You are definitely valid in making these concerns know to your FH. I think you should stick to your ideas and make sure this will not get out of hand at all. I know that it will work out in the end. Just do not let it stress you.

I’m glad that things are working out…  I agree with princesspretti24- sometimes our guys just don’t realize what goes into this kind of shindig!  Sitting down and taking it out is the BEST way to go… Good luck on narrowing that guest list!
