Sounds great to me. No point in paying for more people that you don’t really and truly want there. Intimate weddings are becoming really popular lately… and much more budget friendly. I wish I could convince my mom of it…

I think that sounds perfect!  I think that guests should be only the ones that are going to support the couple, and esp not ones who are going to talk about them.

We’re doing much the same thing. Except, I had wanted to invite one aunt and one uncle that I am closer with. However, my mother said we shouldn’t do that; if we wanted to invite a few we would have to invite them all. Our list would balloon from 30 to 70.

So no extended family. We’re parents, siblings, grandparents, close friends.

We are only inviting close friends and family. Which means 2 of my grandma’s sisters who have always been part of my life are invited… her other 3 siblings that lived less than an hour away and I saw on rare occasion are not invited. I want to enjoy my day with the people I love not spend it thanking randoms for coming to have a free meal on my dime… 

We have about 80 as well 🙂 Good Luck!

Go for it.

I’ve had several people tell me that, a few years later, they have 0 contact with a huge chunk of their guest list. the thought made me kind of sad. 🙁

We’re at 70 people. The only family will be parents, sibs, and one aunt and uncle. I’m looking forward to it, but I’m not in contact with my extended family so I don’t expect to experience any fall out.
