Ok I just had a big debate with my brother who suggested that I throw the day before the wedding a dinner for my out of town family members, I live in another state and will not have access to a church hall or relatives home or even my childhood home just my crappy small 1 bed room apartment that I will be packing up to prepare to move out of and into my fiancés house….. Also I don’t like the idea because I want the day before my wedding to myself to get ready and do things for myself, plus some of my extended family are pains in the you know what’s…..I don’t want to be around any negative energy the day before my wedding … my brother insisted it would be rude of me not too I still told him that I couldn’t afford it and didn’t want too. Most of the out of towners are my family ….
After bickering with him I looked up etiquette and was shocked to find out I was wrong…. And the only etiquette things I have done is reserve hotel rooms near the airport and wedding venue and priced cabs…..So now my wedding is three months away…. I don’t have any additional money and now people will think I’m rude if they don’t have minimally a gift basket or a dinner?… GEEZ!…..and I’m not talking 5 or 6 people this could be between 10-20 people….. realistically I have no idea how many people will come my out of town list is 70 people it’s practically the entire side of my family…..Any suggestion or help I’m trying to see if I can possibly do a very inexpensive gift baskets but my budget is really limited …..Suggestions?
