- Wedding: October 2012
I need some advice on what I should do. My Fiance and I are getting married in Thailand. We are from two different countries, and live in another. It has been very hard to decide where to get married. We have decided and redecided several times, and a lot of our family and friends know this. We were trying to figure out a place that it would be convient for everyone in our lives who wanted to be there, could. This proved to be impossible. So we decided to get married on a beach in Thailand with just our parents. My mom said that we should send out an announcement before the wedding, as a few people have commented to her that they have not recieved anything in the mail from us.(even though they know it will be just our parents there) My long winded question is: How can I word it, so that folk a) don’t feel like they have to send us a gift b) don’t think they are invited to come c) so that we don’t sound like snobs that don’t want to include anyone.
The reason why we aren’t just sending out invites, is that we don’t want folk to feel bad for not being able to come. It is an expensive trip for the majority of our family and friends, some are pregnent, ect. We just didn’t want them to feel like they were letting us down by not being able to come. Also, we didn’t want them to feel obligated to take time off work, and spend a lot of money coming. However, I think a lot of family and friends are wanting to feel “involved”. Any help or advice with what I should do here would be great! Thank you!!
