- Wedding: July 2010
So, I just broke down our guest and I would like some opinons as to whether or not this would make others mad. Keep in mind that we are paying for almost the whole wedding ourselves.
My mom bought me my dress and is paying for the cake (which we didn’t want but she bought to force us to have). She is paying for a tent and chair rental as well, but we wouldn’t need the tent (there is a pavilion at our site) or half the chairs if our guest list hadn’t exploded due to her. At this point there is nothing we can do, the damage is done and eveyone has been invited (thanks for all the guilt trips mom!).
I’m just sore about the whole thing, it’s really put a damper on the wedding for my fiance and I. Also, keep in mind that (while I’m not supposed to know), my mom told my brother who told me that she plans on leaving my step-dad after the wedding. Thus, more guests that probably didn’t have to be included. Here we go:
My mom’s friends: 21 (What the hell?)
Bride & Groom’s friends: 31
Bride’s Family: 32
Groom’s Family: 30
Step-dad’s Family: 19
Total: 141 people! Argh!! We only wanted 75-100 max. So far we have 116 accept.
Right now I feel like such a loser for not standing my ground and telling my mom that it’s our wedding and not hers. So, to all you ladies out there who have a hard time putting your foot down, do it now or regret it when it’s too late (like me).
