    I know someone who had 10 people and they still had dinner, cake cutting and dancing they did it all because after all you only get married once. Noone thought it was weird everyone was just so happyfor them.

      My fiance and I are exchanging vows in Aruba (we are actually getting married in the U.S. at the JOP like 3 months before).....which I hope people won't think is a ridiculous idea....

      Anyway....due to short notice, we may only have immediate family in Aruba when we exchange our religious vows. So...

      Has anyone in here only had about 6-8 guests at your DW?
      If so, what did you do for the reception? We would really really like music and all of that, but don't know if that will be weird with only 6-8 guests, mostly parents/grandparents.

      I would love any advice/opinions/past experiences!!!! Thanks!
      Hey I just noticed that you are exchanging your vows in Aruba and so am I. Just so you know we just went down yesterday to get our marriage license and we will be getting married at the JOP next week, so it is not ridiculous that you will be technically married 3 months before Aruba. It is just so much easier to do it that way, I thought.

      As for having only 6-8 guests, I think it is a great idea to have a steel pan band plus an ipod for your first dance, father/daughter dance, etc. When we first started planning our DW, I didn't think we would have alot of people come and that was what we were planning on doing, but now that we have 28 guests we are still having the steel band for the ceremony and cocktail hour and then a DJ for the reception.

      Have you decided on where you are going to have the wedding? Last year when we were in Aruba we saw a couple get married on the Renaissance Ocean Suites Beach and there was only about 6 people there, but it was set up really nice off to the side and they had speakers setup b/c I assumed they provided their own music. My point is, that I really dont think you have anything to worry about, your wedding will be beautiful and fun no matter how many people are there.
