Guest List Advice

Recommended Posts

So as my FI and I are trying to get a guest list together for our wedding, we are running into some roadblocks.


We defintely want our immediate family there, but are feeling very conflicted about chosing close friends to invite vs extended family. We want to keep the max. guests attending to 20. And we really would like some of our close friends there over our extended family. I know that sounds horrible. We are nervous on how that would go over. I know its our wedding, and we should invite who we want, but I dont want to hurt feelings or cause drama in our families.


Did any of you deal with this? How did you handle it?

We totally had this same issue. Except we aren't limited to 20 people, which makes us look even worse. We chose only immediate family and then friends. No extended family. This is because FI hates one of his aunts and one of his cousins and didn't want them at the wedding...and he was told by his mother he had to choose all or nothing. So we (he) chose nothing. This has caused major drama in the family, but we're just assuming they'll grow up and get over it at some point.


FI and I are definitely doing things the way WE want them, maybe to a fault. But that's just how it is. We don't see why our wedding is such a big deal to so many people...it's just a wedding! But I guess it is a big deal to some. I think most couples make decisions to avoid drama which is probably good. But we didn't. I don't know if this has helped you at all but I just wanted to let you know that if you do decide to only invite friends and immediate family, you won't be the only "evil" bride&groom out there! :)

    • We booked our wedding for April 2021 but the venue let us know at this time they are still implementing Covid measures so we should not have more than 50 guests, etc. We also made sure the contract had an "out" clause that would let us get a refund should the pandemic blow up again, or have the ability to reschedule without penalty.
    • I am having my wedding scheduled in November 2020. I am too much worried about how all the things will be managed in this pandemic situation. About everything like the guest list, preparations, my attire and all. The only thing I am relaxed is about finances. In Feb only me and my fiancé applied for the wedding loans. We have applied early because both of us are having bad credit we had a doubt that it will be approved or not. But our wedding loans with bad credit were timely approved and we have planned accordingly but now this pandemic has spoiled all our preparations. We are trying to be positive and trying to celebrate our new beginnings.
