Cut the guestlist! Don’t sacrifice your honeymoon and moving to a nicer neighborhood just to invite people that you feel obligated to invite! Family or no family, if they haven’t been supportive or played a major role in your life, they don’t need to be at your wedding. It’s just ONE DAY, there is no reason to go into debt or feel stressed out just to accomodate people who are not important to you!

Cut the list, sister. It’s not worth the headache or potential financial strain.

Also, LOVE the third picture 🙂

@MrsKrystalClark:  I’m usually not one to suggest cutting a guest list as the first budget solution because I know it’s easier said than done a lot of times, and I think there are ways to cut costs in other areas and still be able to share the day with everyone you want there.

But in your case, it seems like you’ve already made cuts to determine the 80 people who would be invited, and your initial list of 150 includes people you don’t necessarily need to invite. Plus, you say you’d be more comfortable with 80. In that case, I agree wholeheartedly with other posters: Cut the list! It’ll give you peace of mind and it seems you’ll be happier. Definitely make sure you have enough money left after the wedding to start your married life comfortably. That’s what matters in the long run. Best wishes to you! 🙂

MrsKrystalClark:  I am paying 1k for my wedding with 50 people. It’s one day. We are going to travel Europe in the Spring for our honeymoon – for under 4k. <br /><br />It’s all about what you want to spend. It’s your day, not anyone else’s.
