    Because of the nature of your wedding (wedding now, larger reception next year), I think you should include everyone who is going for supper with you.  If you put 30 people in seats it doesn’t look like a lot of people.

    I’d either invite everyone, or only invite your parents and witnesses. My concern would be hurting people’s feelings so it’s a tough call.

    We’re getting married by a Justice of the Peace before the actual ceremony and it’s only going to be us and our 2 witnesses so that people don’t get their panties all in a knot about it!

    I agree. I’d be very hesitant to include his side of the family and exclude your relatives. If the room can accommodate, 30 people is not too many.

    I think this is one of those situations where it is all or nothing. Meaning invite everyone and make it work, or invite the bare bones such as you, FH, and parents of both sides.  No friends, dates, or other family members. 


    Then have them all at the dinner. Because people will have missed it you may ask a close friend to give you two a blessing/prayer as sort of a “mini ceremony” for the rest of the people.
