That's an awesome article! I've been telling everyone how small of a wedding it is going to be, and most people aren't interested about my wedding plans after I say that, so I'm lucky there. I'm not sure what to do about family! My mom's friend (whom she able to be the most frank and honest with) suggested I don't even invite my father because he's been less than supportive my whole life (even though my parents are not divorced, yet anyway). My brother too don't really belong at my wedding- he has a mullet! And while he would most likely behave, I'd be worried about him drinking that night, blah. Why can't Miss Manners give me an answer on those questions?????

Life is not fair, or unfair, it is simply what you make of it!

don't feel bad about hurting feelings, sometimes people need to get over things and being stupid. If they get hurt because u didnt invite them simply tell them that u had a certain budget and pretty much everyone coming was family. My guest list is up to 209 right now and thats with people we know are coming...we still have people we are invitign we know wont be able to to come, so i def don't feel bad about not inviting a sorority sister or a highschool friend! u have to stick to ur budget!

I'm an all or nothing girl so having a hard time deciding. If not to the wedding then no invite to shower or reception. I'm thinking I just have to say no and cut the list but it is hard.

I know how you feel emoticon
There are a few people that me and my fiance want to invite, but since our families are soooo big, it doesn't seem that we will be able to invite them. I let my work collegues know that we are having a wedding that is pretty much just family and that it is very very expensive. We have decided that if they would like to come after the dinner, they are more than welcomed to. If I could invite everyone I would..but I can't emoticon

my df and I work together. Everyone knows that it is a small wedding; we decided to invite only our main supervisor, office manager, and his immediate supervisor. I am inviting all of the girls to my bridal shower; we had an engagement party and had invited everyone from the office. Maybe this will help you.

With God all good things come to those that wait.

We started talking about guest lists elsewhere but for me it is a topic all it's own. Right now my fiance and I are at 100 to invite and since they are all family and close friends a high percentage is expected to come. But we are having an issue with people from work. There are some we have hung out with outside of work and a few people I talk to more than others during the day. If I don't invite everyone I feel I shouldn't invite just a few but it is hard because they have been supportive and a few offering to help. They are good people but our list would increase by about 50 people if we invited work people. I don't want to hurt feelings or piss off people at work.
