- Wedding: Private home
Background – I’m from a small family in Oregon with a few remaining relatives in CT, husband is from Huge italian/southern families with massive concentrations in Long Island and NC. We got married in NC to let DH’s grandparents attend the wedding (grandfather is on dialysis and can’t fly) which meant that a lot of friends from when I grew up were not able to attend the wedding. the wedding was small – about 80 people, but 50 of them were directly related to my husband, and now me, I guess 🙂 I was, suffice it to say, a little overwhelmed by all my new family!
To let my west coast friends and family share in the celebration, my parents are, hosting a “Meet the happy couple party” for my husband and I in a few weeks, and I just found out how many people they are planning to invite – 160, without my additions to the guest list. 160!!! that’s more than we actually invited to the wedding in the first place! But my mom didn’t get a chance to host any of the pre-wedding events, because they happened in KY and NC, so this is really her party and I’m just showing up to smile and eat cupcakes.
Well, guess it’s just the Husband’s turn to be overwhelmed!
