- Wedding: September 2011
So- as it happens I come from two large families. My dad is the oldest of 10, my mom is the oldest of 12. FH and I are very involved at church and have a large church family as well. We’ve already decided to just invited aunts and uncles (I have 50 cousins on my mom’s side alone). So, this will help us stay around 100 people.
My uncle on my mom’s side picked the SAME DAY AS US!!! What are the chances?!?! So, my extended family is in an uproar about it asking why we can’t change our date. Umm… well, because it’s OUR date. We chose it over a year ago. Things are planned. You don’t just up and change your date! Grr.
Okay, so family has asked if they can just come to the reception. Obviously that is better than nothing- but how do I word that on the invitation.
*Should they get a different RSVP.
*Should I give everyone invited the option to only attend the reception?
The ceremony is way more important to me than the reception. Granted, it will be fun to celebrate. But FH and I are saving our first kiss for our wedding day. That’s right. We used to- but as of almost 2 years ago we renewed our vow of purity to each other…. haven’t kissed since. Hence why the ceremony itself is so important to me.
So, what should I do?!? Please help!
