this is a vent, and question/cry for help…
we are having a very small wedding next summer. we cannot afford a big one at all, and neither of us want a massive wedding really. but we have been sensitive to the fact that there are many people who will wish they could have been there… and we have agreed that lord willing and if we can afford it, we will rent the church my parents go to (i am a member of a church connected to it) and do a 3 hour little reception with cake, and fruit. nothing vrey fancy. will do a little march in with all the wedding attendants… all of us in our garb,etc…
whats really driving us nuts is that there are people self inviting to our wedding… guess what its on an island! you cant get there unless you are on the boat we are renting or by some means you use your own boat out in the ocean. i have 2nd cousins self inviting and aunts who have never met my fiance, and have shown no intrest in us until they got wind of us being engaged. why do family creep out of the wood works when a wedding is coming? i am trying to be honest and open with everyone that its a small wedding, its imediate family only and a few close friends. and i am not even inviting all of my family because mine is massive compared to my fiances. but its not so bad because most are on the other side of the country any ways.
question… to keep the interigation and demand for an invite down i am thinking of sending out the invites to the reception at the same time that i send invites to the wedding to everyone else.
also… is there anyone on here that is good at characture drawings? or using powerpoint paint to make funky cartoony images of people? i know i saw one bee do an invite up ions ago of her and her fiance, and then she did another up for a blogger on here. i cannot remember which bee it was, i dont know how to contact her. but i am wondering if someone may be willing to do a cute drawing of my fiance and i, in good enough quality that we can print them like post cards, to invite people to the reception?
as for the wedding invites… well i bought those from michaels on clearance for $11, those package ones, i am however making it have more pages and be uber cute!
