We were prepared to have 60 people come at one point but when it came time to book most people backed out.
What to say to friends that are not invited?

I'm just planning to stick with the "just family". I'm not even going to go into the "best friends" part, because frankly, I lump them in with family and it's no ones business. And I've already used that explanation with someone,adding "We didn't feel comfortable asking other people to go to the expense and take time off work to make it" It worked!

In my case, we invited over 200 knowing none of them would come....my mom is italian and "HAD TO" do it. I personally was against it, but since she's paying I let her invite whoever she wanted. We've only had 29 book thus far - out of 200! I didn't invite anyone from work - which I feel really bad about - but I only work with 30 people and I couldn't pick & choose.

If anyone wants to come they are welcome because like others we are not paying for their expenses and Vegas is a little cheaper...
those who didn't get an invite are getting special invites to view the ceremony via the net!! Heck my mom is going only because she is not a big fan of flying...
dont feel obligated to explain yourself..simply let them know it's for family/close friends and leave it there...some are gonna be offended no matter what!

I know that some of my friends were peeved that they weren't invited to our ceremony, but we more than made up for the lack of invite with the AHR (and posting ceremony photos after the AHR on facebook where everyone can see them).
