From the very beginning of planning our wedding, Fiance and I decided we wanted to have a small intimate private ceremony and then a larger celebration/reception later that evening. So, we only invited the wedding party, very very close friends, and our immediate family members to our ceremony. The invites went out about 1 week ago now. I have had a lot of anxiety about what people are going to think when they get our invite that says we will be married in a private ceremony and please join us for the reception.
Last night I had a nightmare that my entire extended family sent back their RSVP’s as NO they cannot attend 🙁 In my dream I was crying and felt very alone and sad. How can I shake this feeling?
A little support and encouragement here would go a long way- thanks 🙂

You’re totally not alone in this. I have major anxiety that our family and friends won’t come to our wedding. Or that they will RSVP “yes” and then no one will show up. I talked about this with my BM’s (who are all married) and they said that they had the same worries when they got married.
But don’t worry, your family loves you and your friends are friends for a reason. They will want to celebrate your marriage with you. And they will probably be relieved that they don’t have to sit through the ceremony.
Maybe to feel better about it, you can have your pictures from the ceremony displayed on a digital picture frame during the reception.

I think everyone worries about this to some extent!! But there is no sense getting all worked up about it before you even know how your RSVP turnout will be. Stay calm. People that you love will be there. It will be the perfect day. Dont stress 🙂

OMG I had the same dream hahaha!! My fiance just keeps reminding me that no matter if 5 people come or 500 come, we’re getting married, and that’s the imporant part. We’ll have a great time no matter what just because we’re together. Same rule of thumb applies for you!
