I’m having a Destination Wedding also.. well, for everyone else it is. We moved to Kauai, so everyone has to come here. We are sending about 100 invites. That’s not including all the members of the family!

A lot of people already started booking their tickets. I haven’t talked to anyone who isn’t invited, but I’m having a problem with the +1. 

We are hoping not everyone shows up! But some people are assuming they can bring someone.. and most of them are right. They have been with their SO for a couple years. 

One of my Bridesmaid or Best Man on the other hand, she wants to bring her Boyfriend or Best Friend (or whatever he is). There are lots of problems I have with this.. which is a whole other post. 

Plus we haven’t invited majority of my dad’s family, and they will find out. So I can’t really say there’s only going to be a few close people. Even if there is 30 or 40, they are going to see pictures and be offended. 

Sorry I’m no help! Just thought I’m glad I’m not alone with this issue

My dad has two sister.. I invited one aunt and her two kids (and their kids), but i didn’t invite the other aunt or her three kids (or their kids). I know they know about the wedding, the have even seen our wedding website. I am not that close with them, and if we aren’t close with them, we aren’t inviting them. 

I don’t want to hurt anyone’s feelings, but it’s expensive, and it’s our wedding. I would have invited certain people if we lived in Florida still. 

The people you don’t want to invite (or the ones who are expecting to come) how close are you with them?

I would tell people that you are limited with the number of people you can invite. You are doing close family and friends first. Tell them maybe you will have something later ( a little reception maybe) for other people to come?
