We are planning on having a fairly small wedding (probably around 70 people). I don’t want anyone there who will cause drama or who we are not close with. My Fiance has a huge family and feels like as soon as he starts to invite some people he’ll need to invite everyone so he is probably just inviting his two brothers and his parents. I am inviting more family than he is, but still not everyone (just the cousins, aunts and uncles that I am close to). Multiple of my cousins have had very small weddings or eloped and no one was offended, hopefully the same is true for me! I think the only person who is going to have a hard time with it is my Grandma… she is going to want me to invite everyone! Hopefully I can get her to understand 🙂

We’re having the same problem. I have 32 first cousins x their spouses x 15 uncles and aunts x my cousins kids, etc.

I gave my parents my wedding list of MY people (30 for me, 30 for my FI). If they want to invite more to “make things fair” they’re paying for it. If not, then my close cousins are invited by me, and the rest is up to my parents.
