    I’d say leave the guest list as is. I wouldn’t want the wedding to be the reunion test. That would be too much stress to think about. Yes, all could go well. But personally, I wouldn’t want to think about the other option going into my wedding day.

    • Wedding: September 2014 - The Tucker Place

    I say it’s YOUR day, you do what YOU want.. I’m having the same problem.. and I’m so behind (Getting married in Sept, and I haven’t even made a guest list yet.) My dads side of the family (parents are divorced) aren’t as close to me as my moms. As far as Aunts & Uncles go, I’m not inviting everyone.. Just the people I want there. I think it’s rude & it might hurt peoples feelings but…everyone keeps saying they’ll just have to get over it. So…. That’s what I’m doing, what I want, if it’s rude, it’s rude. It’s mine & hubby’s day, and we will do as we please..

    You should spend your wedding day with the people you care about most. You shouldn’t feel like you have to invite xy&z. I’m sure there will always be members of your family that say you should invite this person or they will become upset… But you are going to have so many other things to worry about that day, why invite people that are just going to bring on more stress. I hope you have a fantasic day shared with people who love you and want to celebrate with you, not cause family drama.
