Originally DO and I decided on having a small wedding. It became very evident early on that just wasn’t a possibility because if you invite family you really have to invite all of the family. Our tiny wedding ended up at 150 guest of just family and close friends. My Fiance has horrible anxiety and the stress of getting in front of that many people, family or not, has been causing a lot of unnecessary anxiety for him. We decided to have a parents only wedding and then close family and a few friends (50 total) dinner after our wedding theb leave that afternoon for the honeymoon. I’ve always wanted a fancy wedding but I love him and want him to feel comfortable at his own wedding. I don’t mind having a parents only wedding but I have to wonder if I’ll regret it later on. Did you regret your small wedding?
Side note: my fi doesn’t want to take anxiety medications the day of because it makes him numb and loopy. He wants to remember the ceremony.
