Real friends will understand.

If you can’t afford to have them at the wedding it’s a shame but their is not much more that you can do. This seems to happen often and people do understand:)

@Holly77:  I agree with this. We had to cut our wedding down to 25 family members and my  friends understood. We are gong to throw a bbq reception for the rest of my friends and family, everybody seems pretty excited about that! I’m also quite excited about having “two” receptions now. One fancy and one really laid back!

You also wouldnt get to see your friends a ton at the wedding anyways, you will be busy being married!!

@distressed:  Have a separate reception and keep it cheap (barbeque or chinese food)

If the most important part to you is to celebrate with your friends, then. cut costs elsewhere. Booze and food are usually a good place to start.  Maybe one of your friends/family members would be willing to organize a potluck, for example.

You could have a party inviting them after but don’t let it be like the “b-list” wedding. A friend of the family did this and we felt insulted.

I am in the same boat- parents made me invite mostly family and their friends and out of 130, only 10 are exclusively my friends (and 4 are in the wedding party. Pathetic and upsetting).
