- Wedding: June 2011
I’m very upset and am finding myself hating my wedding. We sent out email save the dates and invited about 50 people. Fiance and I both have very small families and the majority of our guests were going to be friends from NY and VA. Many of my friends have already said they can’t come because of vacation, prior commitments, money, etc. So now I’m not sure if I should even send them invites if I KNOW they are not coming. I don’t want to seem like I am fishing for a gift.
Also, I’m because of this, I’m estimating we will only be having about 30 people actually show up at our wedding and it’s bumming me OUT! We rented out a nice venue that will cost almost $3k, Catering will cost over $2k, got an expensive photographer, spent hours desiging our own invitations in illustrator, and almost half of those we’ve invited won’t be showing up!!!! One of my good friends actually told me his wife’s yoga teacher is also getting married on the same day/time and he’ll either have to ‘come early or leave late.’ WTF. I totally feel like scrapping the whole thing, eating the deposits and going to elope with Fiance like we originally planned.
