- Wedding: May 2014
So most people have been super excited about our STD’s. I have had a few snarky comments from members of my dad’s family about the fact that our wedding is not in my hometown/province and how they hope they can make it. We’re fully aware that not everyone will make our in country Destination Wedding but we had to do what was best for the largest number of people. We were also at a function yesterday with my Step-mom’s family who are (for the most part) fantastic people and I really love spending time with them. We had to make the tough decision to only invite her parents and the aunt who hosts us at her home on a regular basis. The rest of her family is not invited (it’s just too many people – there are 20+ of them and our guest list is only 110). The aunt had her STD on the bulletin board, I didn’t notice until after someone not invited mentioned our wedding date. I tried to dogde too many questions and commented that we were trying to keep things small. I’m really afraid we’ve offended some of them which is the last thing I wanted to do. I’m wishing we hadn’t sent STD’s to her aunt & parents and just waited for the invites.
