At least, I hope it does.
I’ve got my head filled with wedding thoughts and started mulling on how both me and my SO mainly stick to having a small group of friends. I’ve really only got 5 girlfriends that I talk to regularly, and man, I love them to pieces. One I’m writing a book with, two of them make up what was my go-to “trio” in early college, and the other two are basically my adopted sisters.
My SO has a buddy with work he’s getting close to, a high school friend who lives out of state but is still close enough that he asked my SO to be his best man at his own upcoming wedding, two gal friends who bring the life to any party, and an old roommate that he hasn’t spoken to in a year since we moved but I’m sure he’d still re-connect with.
So in total, we really only have 10 FRIENDS between us. With their plus ones, that’s a good 20 people who aren’t family. We have co-workers and other people we get along with, but to me, it’d seem strange to invite them to a wedding when we aren’t really close.
SO also has a big family who likes getting together pretty often, and my own family is a decent size. About 12 people, including sibling-in-laws (who luckily are all pretty awesome!)
I know my sisters wedding was about 150 people, and it was fun, but I get the feeling me and my SO’s will be more like between 50-70, with most of that being family. Not sure if that’ll be a party or not. Still enjoyable, no doubt, but, well— thoughts? How many of your wedding guests were really friends of yours, did they mix with your family well, did it feel like a fun party?
Let me know, I’d love to hear your own takes!
