I think if you’re having a smaller wedding it’s totally fine to keep it majority famil/some friends and avoid work friends and general acquaintances.

planningbee1019 :  We have a similar problem except we are trying to keep it at 50 because I have 5 siblings plus their spouses and kids (and I’m close to them) so with my immediate family we are allotting more but its still feeling super tight. My SO has only 1 unmarried sibling plus parents but he still has both sets of grandparents, 5 close cousins, much more distant cousins, uncles, etc and then theres his friends, and people from his church that is just like family. I’m having a bit of anxiety thinking about it because hes from a small town where everyone you know is “like family” but we dont have the money for all of them. 


So I understand how you’re feeling and its absolutely fine to keep it intimate and keep friends / people you arent super close to, to a minimum. My SO is super nice and sociable and I already foresee a headache discussing the guest list because it’s hard to axe someone that watched him grow up and yadda yadda but we’re limited in budget.
