I’m having a problem where people are writing me letters and Facebook posts in such a tone that they’re either 1. assuming they are getting a wedding invite or 2. practically begging for one and these are really people I wasn’t planning on inviting, like my father’s sister-in-law that we haven’t spoken to in 10 years because she decided she wanted nothing to do with us. Have others experience this problem? How have you tactfully told people they aren’t getting an invite?

Oooh yah! If we invited everyone who has been asking for an invitation we would need to use Joel Osteen’s church LOL. Okay maybe it isn’t that bad but easily over 600 people. I just say as much as I would love to invite everyone we simply cannot afford it/find a venue large enough/etc. so we are forced to keep it small and intimate. I then go on to list the relatives we can’t invite and would love to have and most get the picture. If they are penny pinchers I might rant about the cost of weddings these days and they invariably suggest enlopement. If they just suggested I enlope how can they demand an invite? Love when they back themselves into that corner! I find I need a different approach with different people but most take it gracefully. Did have a couple people cry though because they aren’t invited. What do you do then? Haven’t found an answer…
