Luckily for us, we felt our list was truly the "cream of the crop" and we are thrilled to have people in our lives who love us so much that they wouldn't miss our wedding for the world. But, the downside of course is that now my little DW that I didn't have to plan has just become a full blown wedding that needs to be planned! Its pretty pricey after you hit that sweet spot of 30 people (depending on the hotel package) because we are now paying per head for what feels like everything!
haha. Oh well, life could be worse, right?
OMG, this is going to make me sound like such a horrible person, but that is my biggest fear right now!! My fiance's family is huge, and as much as we would love to have them all at our wedding $$$ had a lot to do with our decision to have a destination wedding. We are guesstimating about 50 guests ~ our package includes the first 25 guests, so even at that number things are going to start adding up very quickly!! But your totally right ~ life could be worse!!
