- Wedding: City, State
newbee959 : I think you’re shitty for feeling a certain way 😉
Seriously though, I’m sorry to hear you’re in this situation. I can’t personally emphathize because I’m the one with the small family and my boyfriend’s family is like a militia (my family fits into a minivan and his would spill out of a bus). I think the family-only breakdown is 10:33. The overall is 34:69.
I’m not even engaged and my mom is already trying to pad the bleachers with family friends I’ve spoken to twice. It’s your wedding, dont go out of your comfort level, because 1. It’s your day and 2. Unless they’re paying for ALL of it, you will have to pay for some of it and more people means more money. So you have a say.
If it makes you feel any better, regardless of what you do, the important thing is that there are a great deal of people willing to celebrate your big day with you. So that counts for something! Be happy you have a big family, there are people who love you.
