  • poll: Is the imbalance a problem?

    Yes it will be, you need to do something about it

    It might be a problem later but don't stress

    You are an idiot and overthinking too much

    Orientalla:  IMO the only people’s opinions who matter are yours and your FI’s. If he is happy with it, who cares? 

    Ours was pretty even, but not on purpose, it was just how it worked out. I had no idea that some couples actually split the guest list 50/50, I find that really odd. So I would say invite who you want to, provided his parents are also OK with the imbalance if they’re paying.

    Our gueslist is very uneven but who really cares? The people you should invite are thosse ones nearest and dearest to you and your fiance.

    Our guest list for our reception is INCREDIBLY uneven. 

    Mine: 7

    His: 43

    And honestly, I don’t care. I’ll have my immediate family and my best friend. That’s enough because that’s all I have. All my distance relatives (aunts, uncles, cousins, etc. live across the country). For him though, he’s got a much more tight-knit family who are all local. I think of them as my family though too, and at the end of the day, they will be.

    As long as you and Fiance don’t mind then it’s deffinitiely not a problem! 


    Ours is uneven – 35 v 65 but we don’t care! I’m not going to make him cut important people and I’m not going to invite randoms just to make it ‘even’ 🙂

    I have about 50 guests on my side, Fiance has about 100 on his. Doesn’t bother me at all.

    The imbalance DID matter. Then you talked to your Fiance and found out that it didn’t matter to him. So no more imbalance issue. Have a great wedding.
