Who to invite? HELP!?

Recommended Posts

I think you should invite everyone, so that no feelings are hurt. I basically talked to everyone on my guest list, and if they had a interest in going I sent them a save the date. But you'll make a good decision.

I'm having a dilema with invites too. I want to invite my cousins and aunts and uncles and such, but I'm worried they actually WILL come! We don't have it in our budget to pay for food for everyone if they did decide to come! But at the same time, I don't want anyone's feelings to be hurt because I didn't send them an invite.

I'm in the same boat. I don't deal with either side of my family like that. And neither does FI. And to add icing to the cake, the majority would not be able to travel to the wedding for financial reasons anyway.

 

I thought about sending invites to everyone but it'd be a waste of $$ in my opinion. I've decided to just invite a select few people. The grandparents, and immediate relatives that we actually do deal with.

 

If you are concerned about feelings being hurt (in my case I'm not really concerned), then maybe you should at least send the invites. Just be to be safe.

This is a good idea. At least you can weed out the persons who are not interested.

I'm rather unsure about what I'm doing as well. (Got to do more research on this amazing sight before I decide!) But I think I'll just invite close family and friends to the destination wedding. Then we'll have a casual bbq/reception back home by the river after the wedding that we plan on inviting EVERYONE to. Something like:

 

Stephanie & Jerry will be married

March 13, 2011

In Riviera Maya, MX

 

Please join us in celebrating our union

Guadalupe River State Park

March 19, 2011

 

Obviously I'll fancy the wording up, but that 's what I'm thinking. Does it seem rude to invite them to a party, but not to the wedding? We want to celebrate with everyone, but the cost of wedding invites and paying for them at the fancy reception at the resort is something we can't really afford.

    • 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.
