    You want to do 19, so do 19. Your friends should understand. Everyone cannot always be invited to the wedding… It is what it is. Only have the 32 people if you will not be miserable, resentful, and broke in doing so. Good luck!

    Think about who you want to be there to celebrate with you at this wedding. 10, 20, 30 years from now – who do you want to see in your pictures? Even now, just 6 years later, I sometimes regret the people I did and didn’t invite. On the one hand, I hate seeing random significant others (who actually weren’t all that significant at all!) of my friends in my pictures. On the other hand, I do see how inviting some friends and not others definitely set the tone for some friendships fizzling out. But for the most part, I feel good about who I invited and who came.

    Whichever option you choose, I would include your best friend – it sounds like she is more like a sister to you since you have been friends for so long! If you go for the 19 person option, could you just ask her not to publicize the fact that she was there so that your other friends don’t get jealous? Also, are they as good of friends with you as your BFF? I think they should understand if this is your oldest and best friend.
