i had a similar issue, since most of our friends live outside of austin and all of my fiance’s family is out of state. i’d say don’t sweat it too much – your wedding is going to be fantastic no matter what! you’ll have a great time with the people who are able to come, and think of all the money you’re saving with a smaller guest list!

this is easier said than done, though. i had this image of what our wedding was going to be – huge, bigger than i originally wanted – and it was difficult to let go of that. once i did though, i stopped fretting and had a fantastic time. don’t worry about compensating and look at it as a chance to have the small, intimate wedding many people dream of but can’t have.

having an informal party back east is a great idea! this way you can have a huge party there, celebrate your marriage twice, and generally have the best of both worlds!

That sounds great. My parents are going to have a party for us when we next visit them so the people that couldn’t come to the wedding can see us. We know some people just can’t come for $ or logistical reasons – almost all our guests live a long way away. 50 isn’t really that small – you’ll get to spend time with your friends and family.
