Because in reality a wedding (or vow renewal in your case) is a political event in some regards. Who is invited and not invited can effect relationships in the future. Your relationships, your families relationships etc.  People either want to ensure a good relationship, avoid a bad one and because they want to share (usually) the fun and happy occasion with the people that mean a lot to them.

If it is a vow renewal, why DO they have the right? I can see families being like this for the actual wedding…but aren’t vow renewals something you want to do and you host? If that is the case, maybe you can tell them thanks for their input and then just do things the way you and Darling Husband want to?

Agreed that its amost like a political event. Any time social circles are involved, your end up with dictation and expectations.

Sorry this is happening to you! Stick to your guns, its going to be amazing regardless 🙂

@Sage Marie: omg! That is a little crazy. A lot changes in 10 years. Someone your family is close to you might no longer be close to. I would just do it the way I want to and let them say what they want. I know for my own wedding, if someone isnt happy with the way we are doing it or who we are/are not inviting, then they don’t have to come!
