What to tell the uninvited?

Recommended Posts

I would simply tell them as you did more research, the amount of work and money that a large wedding required, you and your hubby-to-be talked about it and decided that's not really what you wanted - you wanted something more intimate and after researching it more, a DW seemed more like what you guys wanted. If you are planning on having a shin-dig for the family when you get back (say a picnic or something), you could tell them you're going to have pictures or even a slide show available so everyone can see you and your hubby walking down the aisle. Just an idea. Ultimately, I have learned that this is about you and him so you have to do what make you two happy.

I kinda skimmed responses so sorry if it's redundant, but I think your guests will more than likely whittle down the list for you. I would just invite close family and friends (the people you intend on inviting) and if it comes up with anyone else, you can either cave and invite them just to be nice or express your thoughts about having a small wedding for financial reasons. We just told everyone "it's just a small, intimate wedding for family" if it was friends and for distant relatives, we just said "immediate family to keep it small and affordable." We did say we would have a AHR to lesson the blow and intended to do so, but by the time we got home I was over wedding stuff and planning so we didn't. LOL


Good luck!


Oh and we did cave when a distant friend confronted us about not being invited... we were like "Oops... we didn't think you were interested, but you can come if you want." She did and she was a party pooper! Don't CAVE! LOL

    • we ended up using Facebook messenger when we were in Mexico - the hotel had free wifi and at least 1 person from each family/couple had FB on their phone already - it was pretty easy to communicate among guests "hey, we're heading to the beach bbq for lunch." or "everyone is hanging at the small pool today".  a plus was that some people tried to get a hold of me via FB on the day of the wedding and I was totally not checking my phone - they were asking if the wedding was outside given the rain forecast, thankful my mom, MOH and a few other friends were on the group and could respond for me :)

    • Hi Everyone, So, I was cleaning out my closet and realized that I never sold off my extra wedding OOT bag stuff from our wonderful DW.   46 Daily Spanish for Dummies 30 Pool colored OOT fabric bags - approximately 13in x 13in. They lay flat.  I used them for our wedding and they were perfect for everything we needed to fit in each bag. There’s a slight shade variation in the group; I’m guessing some were cut from a different bolt of fabric.  They are also a little wrinkled from storage and will probably be wrinkled from shipping. I have three additional ones, but they somehow got something on them (likely toddler related). If needed, I can try to wash it out and send those as well. 
    • I’m getting married in six months to my foreign girlfriend. I was advised by a friend that one of the things I need to do before saying I do is to get a prenuptial agreement. Basically it’s supposed to protect my assets and properties in case my relationship with my future wife goes down the drain. I don’t know though if this is an acceptable practice when marrying Kiev ladies. I don’t want to do it if it would be insulting on her end. I need advice on this. Please help me.
