For us I only want imediate family, close friends and only people who have been very important to us over the years. I say cut anyone else out that way you can spend the day with only people you really care about and will be able to focus and spend more time with those close to you.

@reynaweddingbee:  Good to hear 😉 I would not invite your step-dad’s brothers unless you have a particularly close relationship with them. Just curious as to why you all made your guest list after booking the venue

I don’t think there’s a problem with B-lists! Most people seem to understand, and fiance and I have quite a few friends that understand we really care about them and would love to have them at the wedding, but numbers just won’t allow it. All of them are more than happy to get an invitation (even the morning of the wedding!) to let them know if there’s space. We understand that they won’t keep their weekend free just on the offchance that there’s space at the wedding, but if there’s a spare seat and they’re free, you bet they’ll be there!

with an extended family ( even with a a small wedding) my sides about 35-40, my partners is about the same. I nearly had an arguement with his mum due to her saying ” oh u NEED to invite my uncle henry and his wife… im not sure of her name!, and u need to invite…” i thought ive never met these people, my partners not saw them in years yet we need to invite them… :/ too bad im a pushover and said yeh to keep the peace lol
