- Wedding: September 2013
Fi and I have decided to have an intimate wedding with just 25 guests. This includes only our immediate families (and my aunt and uncle that I’m extremely close to) and our bridal party.I’d rather not allow dates (I really don’t want randoms at our wedding) but will feel a little bad about people that have been dating someone for a couple of months. The thing is, I kind of don’t want to look back at pictures and be like “Who was that guy again?” Is it okay to only invite people who live together/are married/engaged? It would be a non-issue with a big wedding, but when it’s so small – wouldnt it be awkward for everyone?
The other unrelated issue is – can I ask everyone to wear similar colors? They would be in our bridal party anyway and I would have picked out dresses. So is it still okay to define their dress code (shades of pink or beige) even if they won’t have the same wedding responsibilities? Or for all of the men to ask them to wear a grey suit? Even though we’re having a tiny wedding, I want gorgeous cohesive photos from our day.
