I forgot to mention the other big problem: FI and I went straight from our cake tasting to the big picnic with the performing company to celebrate the end of the season, and we were excited about our geektastic groom’s cake we had just designed. We both told people about it, then said something like, “You’ll just have to wait until the wedding to see it!” Long story short, we realized when we got into the car to leave that we had just invited half the cast. Oops.

I was looking at a similar problem. So DH and I decided to have dinner and ceremony cut to only family and the friends involved in the wedding (so the closest of them) and then we are inviting the rest of our friends to the dance to celebrate. We chatted with friends before we decided on this to be sure we didn’t hurt anyones feelings because we just couldn’t afford everyone to go. We are also sending out our invites slightly early tso that if there are family members that are not coming we can invite more friends. OR you could cut back to a cocktail style reception and invite some more people, but if you do this be sure to put it in the invites.
