We currently live out in Washington state and all of our family and friends are in Chicago or Virginia. We invited 212 and although we are still about 2 months out, we have a good idea of who is coming out. We are anticipating between 100 and 120.

Hey sorry I just saw this. I’m getting married in Bellingham this august 🙂

 

A lot of the family that I invited isn’t coming out. Almost all of my dad’s side of the family is not. With that being said, we took that as an opportunity to invite the people that we have become close with out here. So even though some aunts and uncles cannot make it, we got to invite other people we are currently close with.

A lot of my family is excited to come out here. Honestly, you need to do what YOU want to do and plan a wedding where YOU want. I could not deal with planning a wedding somewhere I didn’t live. Between meetings and tastings and projects, there is no way I could have had a wedding in Chicago even if I wanted to.

I’m personally pumped that my close friends and fam are flying out here to see WA. I think we are getting married in an awesome, beautiful location and are giving people the opportunity to see something new.
