Nomster:  Yeah, I can understand a few people here and there.  But when it’s 50% and tons of people are local AND they were given over a year’s worth of notice…that I just don’t get.  Thanks for your compassion.  🙂

We are having our on a Thursday evening. Where we live most of us start going out on Thursday nights for the weekend festivities anyways so it made sense. That being said we are only having 18 people there which made it a no brainer for us as we know those invited wouldn’t miss it for the world. I think Tuesday is a harder day as most have just begun their work week and it isn’t at the very beginning or very end. My Future Mother-In-Law already complains that we are inconveniencing her by having ours on a Thursday even though she doesn’t work so I don’t get it. But someone will always complain and it IS just about the two of you. And for the girls saying they wouldn’t unless they were close to you is fine because why would you want people not close to you to even be there?? That is why big weddings confuse me.

I got married on a Thursday. That said, I only had one “guest” – my best friend/MOH who came on her lunch hour. It was perfect.

If you’re looking for a tiny, intimate celebration with just your family and your wedding party, go for it. But if a lot of your guests are going to be coming from out of town, I would suspect most of them won’t come.

abm0611:  I can only speak for myself re: the “closeness” thing, but I get invited to a LOT of weddings of people with whom I’m not super-duper best friends. Friend from college I only see rarely? Sure, I’ll go. Coworker of my husband? Meh, if he wants me to. Aunt Bertha’s goddaughter? If the plane ticket won’t wreck the budget. I think people who are talking about being close to the bride are referring to super-besties or immediate family. I’d move heaven and earth to go to most (not all, but most) of those weddings. The rest … maybe, maybe not, all depending.
